Collagen is a naturally produced protein in our body that boosts the elasticity in our skin, leaving it firm and tight. As we age, the amount of collagen we produce is slowed down and as a result we start to see lines, wrinkles and sagging around the eyes, mouth, forehead and other parts of the body. |
In short, we need collagen to look young.
Many commercial products advertise collagen as a key ingredient in their products. Anti-wrinkle creams, eye serums and night creams market collagen as the reason why their product will work. While their is no doubt that these products actually contain collagen, unfortunately, using these products doesn't usually help your skin.
Currently, the molecules in these products are simply too large for our skin to absorb. Therefore, the collagen remains on the surface of the face and body without penetrating the layers of our skin. It's the surface under our skin that really needs the collagen to keep our faces young looking, so essentially, these creams and lotions do nothing.
However, there are other proteins that will penetrate the layers of the skin and help boost the natural collagen production. Protein keratin is one such substance that has shown ample success in regenerating elasticity and fighting the signs of aging.
Protein keratin is derived from sheep's wool, and is molecularly structured to make it easy for our skin to absorb it. It's a natural substance that stimulates our body to start producing its own collagen, which in turn, gives us the firmness we may have lost.
So while you can't actually add more collagen to your skin through creams and lotions, it is absolutely possible to use protein keratin to increase the amount of collagen your body produces. Applied topically, this protein can be found in many moisturizers, lotions and skin cleansing products. It won't work overnight, but within a few days, you will already notice tighter, smoother skin with less lines and wrinkles.
