Collagen is the most important element in younger looking skin.
Collagen is simply what keeps our skin from sagging, giving us that plump, youthful look.

The body naturally makes collagen, but this production decreases with age. Starting in our mid-20s, we slowly begin to lose collagen.
By the time we reach the first few years of menopause, we have lost up to 30% of collagen production. 

Because we lose collagen as we age, adding collagen as part of an anti-aging beauty regimen is the natural next step.
But not all collagen offers the same results.

So what kind of collagen should you add to your skin care routine?

Because we know that collagen supplements and or powders taken orally are broken down during digestion, a meniscal amount if any ever reaches the skin. Also, depending on the type of collagen utilized, protein powders are made up from cow hides, fish scales or bones from chickens which is why most powders smell awful. So much for those looking for a vegan option. But no love lost there because of the new cosmetic sciences along with new formulation technologies, options have expanded for those looking to preserve, regain and maintain a younger looking appearance, longer.

Will collagen applied topically help with collagen lose?

For those not aware, collagen in it's raw form cannot penetrate the skin therefore creams and serums that contain these large collagen molecules will sit on top of the skin's surface. While some of the other ingredients in these products such as hyaluronic acid or other actives will make a difference, the collagen molecule will not. 

What options are available for wrinkles and loose skin from collagen lose?

Adding a topical collagen protein in the form of peptides, like those made by the skin as skin ages, can make a difference in keeping skin firm and tight. As skin ages and breaks down, proteins develop naturally on the skin with the only purpose of alerting the skin layers below that the important elements, collagen and elastin are breaking down. This alert and response works well in our early years but the responding levels of proteins slows as we age, making it difficult for the skin to keep up with the demand for collagen production. Again, since collagen in it's raw form does not absorb topically, dermatologists agree that finding serums that contain collagen boosting peptides, proteins, and factors will help the most in keeping a more youthful appearance over time.
