The Benefits of Collagen Peptides for Your Skin
Collagen Benefits For Your Skin
You may wonder what are the benefits of collagen peptides for your skin, hair, nails, joints and even gut health, and may have been reading or researching about collagen in the last few months – no doubt because you’re starting to see information and products about Collagen everywhere! Well, let us help! Collagen peptides are a type of protein that helps keep our skin firm and elastic and hydrated. They also help prevent wrinkles and fine lines, as well as other signs of aging like grey hair, hair loss, brittle bones and nails, poor muscle repair and weakened joints and ligaments. It’s no wonder Dermatologists use collagen peptides in cosmetic treatments to improve the appearance of skin topically, and why so many athletes use collagen to help strengthen their muscles, ligaments, joints and tendons – and overall all soft tissue….. Collagen is the second biggest supplement in the USA, and now it’s coming to Australia in full swing – so do you know the benefits of collagen peptides and how often you need to take collagen for it to work? If not, read on….
Collagen Helps Repair Damaged Skin Cells
Collagen peptides work by stimulating cells in the dermis (the layer of tissue just below the epidermis) to produce more collagen. This process strengthens the connective tissues that hold the skin together and keeps it looking young and healthy. As you age, your start to lose between 1% and 2% of your natural collagen production from your mid 20’s. Scary right? But by taking collagen supplements, this can help slow down the ageing process, keeping skin looking fresh, supple, hydrated and elastic…. Just think about the skin challenges you face, such as dull, dry skin, pigmentation and even rosacea, slow skin healing and fine lines and wrinkles – all will benefit from ingesting collagen peptides.
Collagen Helps Promote Healthy Cell Growth
Collagen peptides also help promote cell growth and repair damaged skin. In fact, they've been shown to improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines – both associated with ageing. But there are other skin health issues as we age, like sagging skin, dull skin, loose skin and stretchmarks, skin pigmentation and rough skin. Collagen peptides can help boost the dermal layers from the inside, and with regular consistent consumption, you’ll start to see improvements with your skin elasticity and texture.
Collagen Helps Reduce Fine Lines and Wrinkles.
Collagen peptides are made up of amino acids that are naturally found in our bodies. These amino acids are what give collagen its structure and strength. As we age, our body's production of collagen decreases, leaving us with less collagen than younger people. This leads to sagging skin, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. So if you are in your mid 30’s and starting to see those very thin, fine lines, now is the time to start consuming collagen peptides. Try a collagen drink once to twice daily to support the collagen levels in your body – like a collagen smoothie, collagen tea or another collagen drink. Those fine lines and wrinkles may look better when you put moisturizer on, exfoliate weekly and put on a face mask, but ensuring that you’re boosting your collagen from the inside will result in that healthy, glowing radiant skin and hopefully keep it looking that way for longer.
Collagen Helps Boost Skin Radiance and Elasticity
Collagen peptides work by stimulating the growth of new collagen fibers. This helps keep skin firm, hydrated and elastic, making it appear more youthful. In addition, collagen peptides help improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as stated above, so to maintain that radiant, glowing skin, ensure that you’re drinking enough water daily, having enough sleep, exfoliating weekly, wearing sunscreen, eating well, and drinking a collagen drink twice daily to boost up your collagen and keep that skin radiance so you don’t lose that luster.
Collagen Helps Fight Acne
Collagen peptides can also help fight acne, by stimulating the production of elastin, an amino acid found in connective tissue that keeps skin smooth and supple. Elastin also helps prevent scarring, which is handy when we’re referring to wound and skin healing. Think bruises, pimples, cuts and scars – collagen peptides are working hard from the inside to help your body heal and to result in a smoother, more supple looking complexion with less bumps and lumps and less sebum, pimples and acne.
As you can see, collagen peptides are a great investment of your time from your late 20’s and early 30’s to start preventing the ageing process, but if you’re in your 30’s, 40’s or 50’s it’s a great way to manage and maintain your ageing process, along with a good diet, great sleep and sunscreen, you could try and start to invest in a collagen drink daily to boost your collagen levels and start seeing the results of collagen in your skin, and your hair, nails, joints, ligaments, muscles, tendons, gut health, eyes and more!!!
