Collagen Skin Care

Benefits of Collagen Producing Creams

Collagen is one of the most important components in the skin.  It forms deep in the skin and is the primary protein the creates skin structure.  Your skins appearance depends largely on the amount of collagen and the condition of collagen in the skin.

Collagen does break down over time.  It can be damaged by many things, like sun exposure, environment, poor nutrition, smoking, and hormonally changes.  The amount of collagen produced in the skin decreases as a person gets older.  With less collagen skin will not be as full.  It will also begin to droop, sag and wrinkle.  The collagen in the skin gives skin its full youthful healthy appearance.

It is not possible to simple replace collagen in the skin with a cream containing collagen because the collagen is too large to penetrate deep into the layers of skin where it is needed.  Collagen injections can be performed with some success.  Injected collagen will give the skin a temporary boost however it does not last very long.  Injects can also have bad side effects.

In order to really gain the benefits of collagen you must find a way to increase natural production again.  There are collagen creams and serums available that are made to actually make the skin produce collagen.  There are several ingredients that have been shown to help promote collagen production.  Some of these ingredients are Hyaluronic Acid, Matrixyl, Vitamin C.  Regular use of a cream with these ingredients can make skin look and act younger again with less wrinkling and drooping.
