It is the most prevalent protein in the human body. Tendons, fat, and ligaments are among the sites where collagen may be found. When people converse about the significance of collagen, though, they're usually talking about its skin-care advantages.
It is necessary for the strength of our bone structure and helps the components of our body join together. Collagen-containing cells have a robust and young look when collagen levels are healthy.
Collagen has the unique property of causing a domino effect when stimulated. Your body can make and keep more collagen the more collagen you have.
What Happens at Age 30+ ?
1. Collagen loss
Your body produces less collagen as you get older. The skin thins, becomes drier and loses its elasticity. Collagen deficiency causes wrinkles to appear. When you reach the age of 30, your body begins to lose collagen, and more rapidly so when you enter menapause.
2. Looks Dull
Your cell turnover ratio slows down as you become older. This causes dead skin cells to amass on your skin's surface, making it look dull and lifeless.
3. Skin becomes drier
Whether or not you've ever had dry skin, there's a risk your skin will become dry and flaky beyond the age of 30. Sebum production in the skin decreases as you get older.
4. Signs Of Aging
Your skin is made up of proteins, which give it the suppleness and strength it needs to look youthful and healthy. The generation of these proteins in your skin slows down as you become older.
5. Dark Spots
Dark spots on your skin may appear out of nowhere. Years of sun exposure can lead pigment-producing cells to overproduce melanin, resulting in this condition rapidly.
Our bodies' oil production diminishes as we become older. A change in skin type may develop as a result of this. You'll notice that your skin is less greasy than it was before.
7. Puffy Eyes And Dark Circles
You may experience puffy under-eyes and dark circles when you enter your 30s. The loss of collagen and elastin in your skin is the cause of this. The body's production of these proteins declines as we become older. Collagen and elastin maintain the skin's strength, integrity, and firmness.
How to Boost Your Natural Collagen Production?
Collagen may be increased in a variety of ways. People can change their lifestyle, supplements, skincare and diet as follows.
Diet To Boost Collagen:
Following are the best diet you should eat to maintain and increase collagen levels in your body.
In the skin, hyaluronic acid is a critical component of collagen. It's found in high-amino-acid foods, including beans, root vegetables, and soy. Collagen levels may be readily increased by using hyaluronic acid in the diet. Supplements containing hyaluronic acid are also available.
Vitamin C is the essential cofactor for the two enzymes required for collagen synthesis. Vitamin C is contained in many foods and can be applied to the skin or taken as a supplement. Vitamin C is abundant in citrus fruits, broccoli, strawberries, papaya, and green leafy vegetables. It is also present in the Ceremony Serum, which is very helpful in boosting collagen production.
Antioxidants are chemicals that aid in the body's defense against free radicals. Although not all antioxidants will increase collagen formation, they will assist the collagen already there in doing its work to the best of its ability.
Antioxidants come in various forms that can save and renew collagen in different ways. Antioxidants are plentiful in both nature and diet.
Ashwagandha and Tamanu.
The Ceremony Serum, is packed with antioxidants and Vitamin C from Black Raspberry Seed oil which helps boost collagen and protect skin against radical damage.
Protein helps the body to boost collagen production. You can find essential proteins from the following.
Supplements To Boost Collagen:
Ginseng boosts the quantity of collagen in the circulation, according to a 2012 study published in the Journal of Ginseng Research.
Ginseng may also have the ability to prevent skin cells from aging, according to the researchers.
Collagen peptides are highly tiny protein fragments derived from animal collagen. Collagen is a protein found in cartilage, bone, and skin.
Collagen peptides taken orally appear to increase skin hydration and elasticity in the elderly. It may help minimize wrinkles, but it's unclear if it does so sufficiently to be noticeable.
Lifestyle You Should Follow to Boost Collagen:
Following are the lifestyle changes that help boost the collagen level in your body.
1. Limit the use of sugar
A high-sugar diet encourages the production of advanced glycation end products (also known as AGEs), which break down collagen.
2. Sun Block
Sunlight causes the breakdown of skin collagen, so it is preferable to use a hat that will protect your neck, head, and face from the sun's harmful rays.
Wear sunglasses to prevent crow's feet from appearing. UV rays can't get in around the sides because of the wraparound blinds.
Skincare to Boost Collagen
Collagen is the skin's principal structural protein, acting as a scaffold and providing volume to keep the skin smooth and wrinkle-free.
Environmental factors such as pollution and sun exposure can break down collagen, making it more likely that you'll see wrinkles in the mirror.
1. Skincare products high in Vitamin A + C
Using the right type of skincare can minimize collagen breakdown as well as help boost healthy collagen.
Look fro products containing high level of naturally derived Vitamin A which helps boosts collagen level, as well as Vitamin C which protects skin against radical damage and break down of collagen.
Both the Aura Serum and the Ceremony Serum are brimming with high level of Vitamin C, which come from the plants and is bio-available to skin.
The Ceremony Serum has ingredients like Bakuchi Seed Oil, and Papaya Seed Oil which have been shown to promote cell renewal and restore skin radiance.
Protect skin against collagen breakdown by wearing SPF every single day, even on cloudy days.
