Collagen and Skin
At about twenty five years of age, the body’s collagen production decreases at the skin level. This process accelerates between the ages of forty and fifty. When the production of collagen is slowing down, the skin retains less water, gets thinner and begins to wrinkle.
The lack of collagen in the skin appears by thinning down. Little by little, capillary tissues of the skin become thicker, which reduces the capacity of the skin to retain nutrients and water. The skin then presents a bigger risk of developing wrinkles, stretch marks and infections. Its color and pigmentation change, and we can see brown spots appear. Because the skin is less healthy, its capacity to serve as barrier from bacteria and viruses is reduced. A supplement of collagen can
largely help to regenerate skin tissues and so contributes to slow down the process of aging, particularly if it is ingested, since the effect will occur in the whole body.
