Skin Benefits of Daily Collagen Use

Our skin is the largest organ in our body. Growing up, we are often reminded to take care of it in a variety of ways such as using sunscreen, being careful not to place harmful substances or chemicals on it, and keeping it hydrated and healthy. But do you know what makes up the majority of our skin? Collagen. Our skin is 75% collagen. That’s extraordinary in many ways!

Skin health is effected by many external factors including our environment, aging, sun exposure, and what we put on it. It is also effected by internal factors such as the food we eat, supplements and medications, water intake, and more. After the age of 25, we lose up to 1.5% of the collagen in our body every year. This shows itself in many ways such as: 

  • wrinkles
  • loss of elasticity
  • lack of firmness
  • dry, chapped skin
  • uneven skin tones
  • dull looking skin
  • appearance of aging
  • ability to heal quicker/smoother

So how can we reverse the signs of aging and replenish the collagen that we’ve lost over the years? Whether you’re 25 or 95, daily collagen intake can significantly improve your skin health and more. It’s not a lost cause, and studies have shown that daily collagen intake improves skin elasticity.

Let’s get a little scientific here. As we age, our bodies break down due to a loss of collagen. Collagen equal elasticity, and when this breaks down, it leads to a collapsing dermal layer thus contributing to wrinkles and loss of elasticity. Because collagen is very rich in the particular amino acids glycine, proline, and hydroxyproline, it hydrates and provides vitality to the skin while also delivering elasticity. 

We’re big on the whole strength from within side of health, and it is true in this case as well. Daily intake of our Marine Collagen will increase not only your skin health, but your overall body health from the inside out.
