Collagen is a natural protein found in the human body - it can be found in the bones, muscles, skin and tendons.
When the collagen levels in your body are healthy, it will help with...
- Joint health
- Protective of the kidneys and other organs
- Skin elasticity
- A healthy cardiovascular system
- A healthy and strong digestive tract
As you get older, your body produces less collagen which can lead to your skin becoming dryer and wrinkles beginning to form. The decline starts at around the age of 25 and by 40 we can lose up to 1% of our body’s collagen each year. Collagen production can also be hindered by lifestyle factors such as poor diet, alcohol consumption, smoking and sun exposure.
As collagen production slows, we can see the impact on this across our body. It can affect us in the following ways...
- Skin becomes dull and dehydrated
- Wrinkles begin to form and the skin can begin to sag
- Skin heals less quickly
- Hair can lose volume, shine and softness, as well as growing slower
- Muscles, joints and bones can begin to ache
- Physical flexibility diminishes
- The stomach can become more sensitive
How does collagen help my skin?
Collagen is an important component in your skin. Collagen strengthens the skin by forming a scaffold and structure within the body, it’s a key component in connective tissue and essentially holds the body’s cells together. As well as strengthening, it also helps with elasticity and hydration.
The main benefits for your skin
Smoothen the skin and minimise fine lines and wrinkles
Using collagen can help to smooth the skin as it can help your skin to stimulate further collagen therefore making your cells and connective tissues stronger and tighter.
Improves skin durability and elasticity by strengthening the skin
Elasticity is your skin’s ability to stretch and retain its shape. When you’re young and your skin has plenty of collagen and elasticity, it can easily stay firm and tight. As you get older, you produce less of these proteins and therefore your skin can lose its tautness. Increasing your collagen levels can help it to strengthen again.
Promotes skin hydration
Collagen helps with skin hydration by assisting your body in producing hyaluronic acid, a natural substance created by your body to get it moisturised and supple. Skin that is hydrated is more likely to be plump and brightened, helping to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and banish any dullness.
How you can add collagen to your skincare routine
At BeautyPro, we have a number of collagen powered sheet masks that can help to improve your skin.
BeautyPro Brightening Collagen Sheet Mask with Vitamin C
The BeautyPro Brightening Sheet Mask will help you to achieve a natural glow in just 15 minutes! This best selling formula utilises Collagen, Vitamin C and Aloe Vera to brighten the complexion, rebalance uneven skin tones, improve skin elasticity and reduce pigmentation.
Collagen is a powerful anti-ageing ingredient that improves skin texture, strengthens and firms the skin, resulting in a soft, smooth and supple complexion. This combines with Vitamin C, to stimulate the skin’s natural renewal process, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as shielding it from the visible impacts of environmental stressors.
Aloe Vera helps the cells to retain more moisture and assists in soothing any inflammation present. This will improve your skin health and ensure your face feels hydrated and soothed.
This sheet mask is great for those of all skin types to help to achieve re-energised skin with a youthful glow.
BeautyPro Nourishing Collagen Sheet Mask with Olive Extract
The BeautyPro Nourishing Mask intensely hydrates, firming and smoothens the skin. This 15 minute formula is a great choice for those looking for an anti-ageing solution. Using Collagen, Olive Oil and Rose, the treatment will rejuvenate the skin, stimulating fresh cells and targeting any damage or signs of ageing.
Marine Collagen is a powerful anti-ageing ingredient that will reduce dryness and help to boost the levels of moisture in the skin. This makes it easier for the cells to flush out toxins and circulate nutrients, improving your skin health and helping the skin to look clear and purified.
Olive extract also aids anti-ageing, due to its capabilities of promoting cell regeneration, protecting against sun damage and minimising hyperpigmentation. The addition of Rose in the formula helps to soothe and calm the skin, moisturizing the area and rebalancing any oily zones. The result? Smooth and nourished skin with a healthy glow.
