Why does skin begin to sag with age? The answer lies with understanding collagen.
Collagen is a naturally occurring protein that acts as a scaffold for the connective tissues of the body. Along with keratin and elastin, it is what gives skin its firmness and elasticity.
After 30, collagen production begins to decline steeply. By age 50, many women have lost up to 50% of the collagen in their skin. This translates into is sagging skin, often along with wrinkles and lines.
Topical ingredients, such as Retinol and Vitamin C, that can help build collagen have been extensively researched for decades and proven to be effective.
A form of Vitamin A, Retinolcommunicates with skin cells, stimulating them to behave like younger cells. Because Retinol helps increase collagen production and prevent free radical damage, it’s one of the best ways to fight sagging skin.
Numerous studies have shown the effectiveness of Vitamin C in increasing collagen production. It also reduces the appearance of skin discolorations, reduces inflammation, and strengthens the skin’s barrier and repair process. The result is skin which appears brighter and healthier, with improved firmness, tone and glow.
While Vitamin C and Retinol are outstanding ingredients to look for in any skin care product, they are in their strongest form in a serum formulation. OZNaturals® Vitamin C Facial Serumand Pro-Retaxinol 2.5® Retinol Serum contain concentrated amounts of active ingredients and are molecularly structured to penetrate deep into the pores and layers of the skin.
