Why is Collagen Good for the Skin?

Collagen is one of the richest proteins found in the body. It’s like the glue that holds everything together. Adding collagen to our bodies can be great for stiff ligaments and joint mobility, as well as bones and organs because s it’s found in most tissues of the body.

As we age our bodies produce less collagen, therefore it can be added by eating certain foods such as pork skin, bone broth, fish skin and chicken skin. When these proteins are eaten, the body produces amino acids, which are then broken down into new proteins that contain collagen.

Factors that cause collagen levels to depreciate in the body are poor diet, being overweight, overuse such as too much exercise or extreme sports, UV light and smoking. Fluctuating hormone levels during menopause play a part in reduced collagen levels due to a decrease in estrogen levels.

Collagen is very important for the skin as it helps to form new fibroblasts that encourage the growth of new skin cells. When collagen is added into our bodies either by supplements, skincare products, or beauty treatments, the stimulation of collagen will help the production of new cells. Orally or externally, collagen can help smooth wrinkles and boost elasticity in the skin. When collagen levels are high, the skin is soft, smooth, and firm. It also plays a pivotal role in restoring dead skin cells which can help to heal wounds and is good for healing acne.

Putting collagen directly onto the skin will not build collagen, but it will absorb into the skin to help create collagen production to generate new skin cells. It is worth using face creams that contain high levels of collagen to promote skin health. Treatments that will help stimulate collagen levels, to produce new collagen levels, and renew skin cells are recommended for anyone experiencing a loss of collagen.

Collagen also helps keep the skin moist and supports sagging skin. Adding collagen to your skincare routine may improve your skin, reduce dryness, improve elasticity, reduce wrinkles, fine lines, and scars, and promote more glowing youthful skin.
