Is it possible to talk about anti-aging skincare without talking about collagen?
Not really, since collagen is one of the building blocks in our body, it is an essential element for our skin and is responsible for giving us plump and youthful-looking skin.
Our bodies naturally produce collagen, but over time, as we age, this natural production decreases. When natural collagen goes away either due to aging or other factors, like sun exposure, smoking or sugar, it leads to our skin looking and feeling thinner, less elastic and dehydrated.
How To Improve Collagen Stimulation
To help restore your skin's bounce, you should choose collagen replenishing treatments and products that are rich in vitamins A and C, since they also help stimulate collagen production.
Look for topical collagen found in skincare products which can also help to re-densify the skin, provide deep hydration and help soften fine lines and wrinkles.
In order to regenerate your skin pick serums with collagen as an ingredient as these products will tone, nourish, protect and give a lifting effect to the skin.
Creams with high concentrations of pure marine collagen, colloidal gold and fibroin (protein from silk) can help to prevent free-radical damage and protect the skin’s natural collagen.

Powered By Vitamin A
Vitamin A helps to speed up healing, prevent breakouts, support the skin's immune system and promotes natural moisturizing.
Look for microencapsulated formulation of retinol complex that allow for a timely release of the skincare ingredients for better penetration into the skin.
Remember to go low and slow, and avoid retinol if you are pregnant or planning to get pregnant.
Powered By Vitamin C
Vitamin C helps our bodies produce collagen, brightens dull skin, reduce oxidative stress by free radicals, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, redness and hyperpigmentation by minimizing production of melanin.
So why not choose this super ingredient and make it work for your skin?
Remember that just applying topical products will not prevent collagen from breaking down in your skin and body.
If you are between the ages of 20 and 30, then focus on hydrating your body and skin and use ample sun protection, since sun-damage causes loss in collagen.
If you are 30 years and older then the goal is to improve your lifestyle choices along with adding collagen stimulating products to your daily routine to reduce visible signs of aging.
