What is Collagen and how does it Benefit Skin?

Collagen is a prominent protein in the body. While collagen is found throughout the body, it is mostly found in the skin, connective tissue, and bones. Skin is structured and bones are strengthened with the help of collagen. If you’ve been wondering how collagen benefits your skin, keep reading! 

 

  1. Anti-aging benefits 

Collagen works to improve skin’s elasticity. As we age, skin loses some of its natural elasticity and wrinkles, age, and laugh lines begin to form. Collagen can effectively reduce visual signs of aging and wrinkles. Our clinically proven, dermatologist recommended Skin Restore line has many anti-aging benefits. The Advanced Peptides and Collagen Moisturizer and Advanced Peptides and Collagen Serum infused with multi-peptides and plant-derived collagen works to visibly soften and smooth advanced signs of aging.  Matrixyl® synthe’6® helps support collagen for healthy-looking tone and texture.  Argireline® helps to smooth the appearance of fine lines, leaving skin feeling soft. Also enriched with anti-aging antioxidants Vitamin C and Green Tea, this intense wrinkle-fighting, peptide-infused formula promotes a more youthful-looking complexion.  

  1. Increases hydration 

Skin tends to become drier as we age which can increase the look of laugh lines. Essential hydration needed to keep skin looking plump and youthful is not found as readily found in skin as we become older. Collagen works to increase hydration in aging skin. The clinically proven, dermatologist recommended, Advanced Peptides and Collagen Eye Cream with patented Matrixyl® synthe’6® and Argireline® helps to smooth the look of laughter lines to prevent deep wrinkles. Matrixyl® synthe’6® helps support collagen for healthy-looking tone and texture. • Argireline® works to smooth the appearance of fine lines, leaving skin feeling soft. Enriched with plant extract Pycnogenol®, antioxidants Green Tea, Vitamins C and E, this advanced youth-preserving formula helps soothe and reduce the visual signs of aging to promote more youthful-looking eyes. 

 

  1. How to prevent collagen loss 

While we can’t prevent the collagen we lose due to age, we can still prevent some collagen damage. High sugar consumption, UV rays, and smoking can all deplete collagen levels. If you consume a lot of sugary foods or drinks, cutting them out can help keep your collagen levels higher. Instead, replace store-bought juices with natural homemade juices and sugary desserts with fruit, as often as possible. Chemicals found in tobacco can cause harm to collagen, as well as skin’s natural elasticity. Cutting out smoking cigarettes completely can help prevent collagen loss as well as many other health issues. Sunlight and UV rays can cause rapid collagen breakdown and even cause wrinkles to form. Our Sun Defense Mineral Oil-Free Sunscreen for face with non-nano mineral Zinc Oxide works to protect the skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays. This oil-free, lightweight, non-greasy facial formula delivers broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection and anti-aging antioxidant defense.

DERMA E didn’t start out in the beauty aisle or the boardroom. Instead, we began in a small health food store in Southern California. Our first product was a jar of Vitamin E 12,000 I.U. Moisturizing Cream. People were amazed at the results it had on their skin and word caught on.
