What is collagen?
When it comes to skincare, there are so many options it can make your head spin! At Spa Splurge Collection, we want to make it easy for our customers to choose the right product with ingredients that will truly make a difference. With that in mind, we believe in using innovative and cosmeceutical actives in our line of skin care products, one of which is collagen. Here we take a closer look at this miracle ingredient and its many benefits for the skin…
Collagen is the main component of connective tissue and makes up a quarter of your body’s total protein content. It’s incredibly important to the human body as it lends itself to hair, bones, tendons, and internal organs and is what gives skin its structure, elasticity, and plumpness.
Why Your Skin Needs Collagen
By around the age of 30, your skin loses roughly 1.5 percent of its natural collagen stores, and by 40, it loses 15 percent! When you lose collagen, skin becomes thinner, less elastic and supple, which leads to wrinkles, sagging and a rougher texture. By giving your skin a healthy dose of collagen, you slow the rate of depletion and can potentially reduce fine lines and wrinkles, promote smoother skin texture, help restore or maintain your skin’s elasticity, and keep the skin hydrated.
The Benefits of a Collagen Mask
While collagen can be found in foods like water-rich veggies, fish and soy, collagen masks have additional benefits that will help keep your skin looking youthful. For starters, a mask offers better penetration of active ingredients than other topical solutions. In addition, the drying action of a mask tightens the skin, making for an instant, though temporary, face lift. According to the cosmetics manufacturers at LAC Taut, “With regular application – about two to three times weekly - collagen masks can also help ward off skin-damaging free radicals and minimize the appearance of pores.”
