Collagen and Aging
Loss of skin firmness and early wrinkles are associated with collagen deficiency after the age of 30.
Collagen is a protein in our body. 75% of this protein is found in the skin and is its main building material. In the skin, collagen and elastin fibers create bundles of three-dimensional spirals, forming "springs" that support the skin, maintaining its firmness and elasticity. After 30 years, the skin begins to experience a lack of collagen, since the process of its production slows down. If a collagen deficiency is formed, then the “springs” are deformed. Under the force of gravity, the skin "floats" down, changing the oval of the face. From the movement of muscles when expressing emotions, the collagen frame sags. This is where wrinkles form.
Therefore, in order to preserve the youthfulness of the skin, importantly to preserve it, since wrinkles are easier to prevent than to get rid of them, you need to use products containing collagen in the composition from a young age.
