The body's natural decline in its ability to regenerate new cells, the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin and loss of youthful plumpness, are all visible signs of ageing. Environmental stress factors like UV rays, cold and pollution are all causes of accelerated ageing resulting in dull, rough, dry skin, fine lines and wrinkles.
Intensive research over the past decade into skin ageing has shown that the major factor between youthful and ageing skin and joints, is the health and integrity of the collagen matrix, the support structure below the skin’s surface and joint cartilage. Specifically, in ageing skin, the collagen matrix is weakened, broken and fragmented, impairing the structure of the dermis. As the collagen matrix degenerates it becomes brittle, fragile and loses its capacity to maintain hydration. Maintaining the health and structure of the collagen matrix is key to targeting these skin conditions and can dramatically improve the skin’s youthful, healthy appearance. Studies show that the most effective way to maintain the collagen matrix is to boost the body’s own production of collagen by ingesting collagen peptides.
The Key to Youthful Skin
“Did you know that Collagen accounts for 75% of youthful skin, and it is the main structural element of the skin in the dermis. It provides the structure supporting the epidermis and gives your skin its youthful fullness. When the collagen matrix is damaged, skin loses its fullness, elasticity and begins to sag, wrinkle and age.”
