know well that we will naturally lose collagen with age. But exposure to UV
radiation can accelerate this process, making your collagen breaks down more
quickly at higher rate than your normal aging! UV radiation can penetrate into
the dermis (middle layer of your skin), which then may result in the abnormal
buildup of elastin. In time, continued exposure would provoke solar scars and
factor to further skin wrinkling and sagging.
use a broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect your skin from UVA and UVB,
especially during outdoor activities! Most experts recommend at least SPF 30
smoking does hurt your skin health. It can factor into narrowing of tiny blood
vessels of your skin’s outermost layers.
blood vessels cause poor supply of essential things (oxygen and nutrients) to
support the firmness of your skin. As a result your skin begins to wrinkle and
sag prematurely. Also, tobacco smoke lots of harmful chemicals that damage your
skin collagen and elastin.
it’s not fully known how effective your diet in dealing with sagging skin with
age. But what you eat does matter for your overall skin health. A few studies
show that what you eat we might act as anti-sagging fighters.
of these potent foods include essential fatty acids (omega-3 found in flaxseed
oil and cold water fish), soy-based products, and foods high in vitamin A, C
and antioxidants. But a healthy, balanced diet is the key since each food
contains unique properties. So don’t only focus on particular foods — eat a
wide variety of healthy foods!
it’s not easy to boost skin collagen with something of ‘collagen’ through
creams or other topical applications, we’re looking for alternative ways.
most effective way is probably with injection. Collagen can be injected into
the skin as a filler to help replenish your skin natural collagen. But this may
cause allergic reaction for some people. Thankfully, today we have hyaluronic
acid fillers, which can be injected into the skin with less allergenic. Also,
they last longer than collagen fillers.
But many people are likely to choose ‘topical’ option. If you do stick out to this option, creams containing retinoid and hyaluronic acid could be your best bet. See more here!
is one of effective, scientifically approved ingredients to stimulate collagen
growth. Hyaluronic acid is a humectant to give short-term difference since
retinoid takes time to kick in. They are relatively better than ‘collagen-containing’
cream since they have more science behind them!
