What is Collagen?

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body. It’s the main structural protein in the dermis, the middle layer of skin (above is the epidermis, and below is the hypodermis/subcutaneous layer).

Collagen is responsible for helping keep the skin feeling supple, smooth and healthy, while looking firm and uplifted. Due to its large molecular size, collagen can carry a high amount of water, and therefore has excellent moisturizing properties on the skin, imparting radiance and filling in the cracks in dry, dehydrated and aging skin.

The Benefits of Collagen for Your Skin

As we age, the natural production of collagen decreases. Other factors play a role as well, such as stress, lifestyle habits, poor skincare habits, and environmental factors. This means skin begins to loose it’s look of elasticity, appear dry and dehydrated, and less plump. Without appropriate care, the balance of oils and water in skin’s natural barrier becomes compromised. A healthy balance, on the other hand, helps prevent dullness, redness and dehydration, promoting balance, even tone, softness, smoothness and glow.

The good news is that it’s possible to help restore the youthful glow to collagen-deprived skin. Face oils help create a barrier on the skin, softening and sealing the skin, preventing water loss and adding a radiant, beaming glow. On top of that, collagen as a supercharged skincare ingredient can help restore a youthful look and feel by rehydrating the skin for a plumping, firmer effect.
