Somewhere close to the age of thirty, our body starts losing some of its natural proteins. Keratin, elastin and collagen levels start to slow down. We see this in hair that is a little more fragile and loses strands more frequently. We notice our nails chip and break more than they used to, and seem to take longer to grow out again. We notice our skin has lost its tightness and begins looking a little droopy. |
Your skin maintains it's firmness much like a rubber band. When stretched, it should snap back into its original shape once you've let go. Over time, the loss of key proteins means our skin loses its natural elasticity which is why it doesn't pull right back into shape. That's why we look rougher in the first few minutes of the morning upon waking, as our skin needs a little more time to set itself right.
Topical creams and lotions containing collagen are not all that great when it comes to improving the condition of your skin. Basically, the collagen does not absorb well or deep enough into the under-layers of the skin to reap any actual benefit. If you want to put the bounce back in your skin, the only solution is to get your internal collagen levels up and running again.
Keratin, on the other hand, is a protein that will indeed penetrate your skin and motivate the collagen production. You can find this natural protein in substances like manuka honey and sea kelp. It's also prominent in essential oils, such as jojoba oil or grapeseed oil.
While your skin won't tighten up overnight, once you start using the right ingredients, you'll soon be noticing less sagging, less wrinkles and a return to youthful, taught skin on your body and face.
