Have you seen your favorite beauty blogger or Instagram wellness guru posting about collagen and wonder, “What is this and do I need to be using it?”
Don’t worry, we’ll tell you everything you need to know right here. But first, here’s a little science lesson on Collagen (we’ll keep it brief).
Collagen is an abundant protein that lives in all of our connective tissue, and gives skin its firmness. (AKA: it keeps skin from wrinkling and sagging). Think of it as scaffolding on a building.
Our body produces collagen throughout our lifetime, but the production slows down as we get older. And that process happens sooner than you think!
So, at what age do you need to incorporate collagen in your daily routine?
Experts agree that skin starts the aging process around 20 years old, and collagen begins it’s sad decline around the age of 25. This is a good starting point for collagen supplementation. Even if you don’t see signs of aging, trust us…it’s happening.
But hey, collagen isn’t just for the 25 year old to start using! It’s never too late to turn back the clock. In fact, clinical studies on some types of collagen (like the one found in Glotrition) show even greater anti-aging benefits in older skin.
Once you begin taking collagen, you can count on these 5 things to happen to your skin after the first month of daily supplementation:
- Improve skin hydration
- Reduce facial lines and wrinkles significantly
- Reduce eye wrinkle depth
- Improve skin elasticity
- Increase collagen content in the skin dermis (the deeper foundation of our skin)
Not All Collagen is Created Equal.
Look for a supplement that has strong clinical research behind it. Make sure the collagen peptide is present in clinically effective amounts, or you could be throwing your money away. Check out our Collagen|glo Advanced Skin Powder drink mix. It’s delicious, and clinically effective.
