Where skincare is discussed and anti-aging products are sold, you usually hear the terms “collagen” and “elastin” within the dialog. While we know that these two components are important for younger looking skin, the question is, "what is the difference and how do these two components work harmoniously together for optimal and voluminous skin health?"
WHAT IS COLLAGEN AND ELASTIN?
Let’s get clear on the difference between this duo of protein-boosters! Collagen is our BFF and beauty savior. When it is at it’s best, it accounts for 30% of the protein in our bodies. Elastin keeps collagen good company as a like-minded protein found in the body’s connective tissue.
Collagen = strength and foundation
Elastin = returns shape and flexibility
LESS CELL REGENERATION MEANS MORE AGING
When you’re 20, your skin is perfectly happy with a good moisturizer and SPF. As we age, though, our epidermis gets a bit more demanding. Thankfully, a layer of new and living cells reproduce every 21 to 28 days. The renewed skin has a plentiful amount of collagen and elastin, which results in a hydrated, smooth, plump and line-free appearance. "Yipee!"
Over time… hormones, stress and our biochemistry slowly breaks down in it’s ability to replenish itself of these two critical proteins. Therefore, you wake up one morning and "TA-DA,"...ok, actually more like “OMG”, the skin feels more loose and wrinkles are spotted.
IT'S ALL IN THE DELIVERY.
