In just a few years, collagen has invaded the world of in-and-out beauty. This molecule, present naturally in our body, is used in the form of food supplements, treatment creams or injections with the aim of improving the appearance of the skin and reducing the signs of aging.
Collagen is a fibrous protein found in the human body, meat and fish. It ensures, among other things, the regeneration of the tissues of our skin, our bones and our muscles, and is essential for maintaining the firmness and elasticity of the tissues. From the age of 25, collagen production naturally decreases, which contributes to skin aging; the complexion becomes duller, the first fine lines appear... And all these signs intensify over the years. This natural aging is accentuated by the skin's "enemies" such as the sun, refined sugar or tobacco.
In addition to a healthy lifestyle and the consumption of preferred foods (white meat, fish, vitamin C), the intake of collagen supplements will help maintain glowing skin:
In Beauty: brands specializing in skincare offer food supplements to consume every day in the form of pods or capsules. For the pods, simply dilute a stick of collagen powder (neutral taste) in water or in your favorite drink. Simple and efficient! Some brands like Aime Skincare or Matcha & CO offer preparations for hot drinks that are ultra-concentrated in collagen.
Out Beauty: there are many cosmetic products enriched with collagen and collagen amino acids: anti-aging creams, masks and serums, mascaras, hair products, etc. All these products complement the dietary intake of collagen. Little tips! Apply your cream with a facial massage to increase circulation and hydration. Finally, cosmetic surgery, a pioneer in the field, offers localized collagen injections to fill in wrinkles.
The in & out supply of collagen offers numerous benefits for the skin, hair and nails. It allows, among other things:
reduction of wrinkles
improves tissue firmness
improves skin elasticity
strengthens nails and hair
Collagen is therefore a super ally that we immediately integrate into our morning routine to awaken the radiance of our skin.
