Collagen Is The Best Beauty Secret

I am sure you have seen this ingredient featured on the back of all of your favourite skincare products, but what is collagen exactly?

Collagen is a plentiful protein found in your muscles, bones and skin. It is what makes our skin strong, and provides it with elasticity, helping replace dead skin cells. However, as we age the epidermis which is the outer layer of the skin begins to thin and our body’s collagen production naturally slows down. This is the reason why we begin to get wrinkles and sagging skin. Skin ageing is a fact of life, everyone will face sooner or later.

Skin Fact: Our collagen production decreases as soon as we turn 20. Which is why its important to increase collagen levels, increasing your collagen levels will help your skin to look firmer, smoother, and younger.

There have been many studies which investigate the wonderful anti-ageing properties of collagen, where it has been discovered that using collagen rich skincare products on a daily basis for up to eight weeks can significantly improve skin’s elasticity.

Dry skin and uneven skin tone is a very common skin problem, which can be treated with collagen. The amino acids that your skin is missing, slowly get's replaced which can help moisturise and diminish the appearance of imperfections. Stimulating collagen can greatly improve your chances at achieving a flawless complexion, as it helps to reduce the appearance of scars, and even out dark spots.

Collagen is mainly found in the dermis which is the inner layer of the two main layers of the skin and the amino acids found in the protein can help to maintain the strength of the outer layers of your skin keeping it strong, healthy and youthful looking. This is why Avant Skincare have a wide range of products which are rich in collagen to help fight against all signs of ageing and bring out the skin you were born with.

As much as we would like to, we can’t stop our body clocks and put the ageing process at a halt. However, it is possible to improve the appearance of the skin, and the best way to do so is with collagen!
