Collagen is essential for maintaining your skin’s radiance and youthfulness. How does it function? And most importantly, how can you make the most of it? Let’s take a look.
Collagen is a protein that’s produced by your cells and found in your bones, muscles and ligaments… and skin! In fact, a large part of the dermis is made of collagen.
The dermis is the middle layer of the skin, a kind of fibre mesh formed by collagen and another protein called elastin. It supports the epidermis, which shields against external aggressors and rests on the hypodermis, a fat "cushion" through which nerves and vessels pass.
The name comes from the Greek word kolla (glue)—and for good reason: without collagen, your body would fall apart! It holds your tissue and organs (including your skin) together, much like the steel reinforcement bars in a concrete wall.
Collagen plays an important role in the appearance and health of your skin. It keeps it from slackening and helps it to more easily absorb water and regenerate itself. It also gives your skin its firmness, suppleness and radiance.
It’s true that your body produces collagen naturally, but this production has its limits. Between your twenties and forties, your body produces, on average, 1% less of it each year. Why? With time, cells become tired and the stress of oxidation leaves its mark. Free radicals produced by pollution and UV rays, in particular, damage or prevent the production of collagen.
The result is that your muscles and joints become stiffer, injuries take longer to heal, fatigue happens more frequently… and your skin shows signs of aging: it becomes thinner, loses its elasticity and develops wrinkles. To slow down this process, you can give body a boost!
The loss of collagen lies at the heart of skin’s aging, resulting in multiple aging skin issues: wrinkles, loss of firmness & uneven skin tone. Inspired by the new generation of non-invasive aesthetic procedures, LiftActiv Collagen Specalist mimics their mode of action to correct the signs of collagen loss on skin. It helps skin compensate for the loss of collagen by improving skin firmness, with long lasting effect.
Formulated with Pro-Collagen Activator (PCA), an amino acid copper complex that stimulates cell energy, promotes growth of new collagen and elastin, and prevents against future breakdown. No artificial fragrances.
The formula with collagen, known as a highly plumping skin care ingredient, penetrates the hair fibre from root to tip for healtheir hair, infusing instant, lasting volume.
