Facts about Collagen and Aging

Collagen is a protein and since it is responsible for warding off wrinkles, lines and other signs of aging, it was often called as the skin’s “fountain of youth.” As a person gets older, the production of collagen decreases which can lead to more pronounced signs of aging especially if accompanied by some external factors like the sun and smoking too. More facts about collagen and aging will be discussed below.

Collagen and Aging
Knowing More about Collagen
Our skin is composed of three layers which are the epidermis, dermis and hypodermis. The epidermis is the outer layer of the skin which is followed by the middle layer known as the dermis. The deepest layer of the skin is hypodermis. Collagen which is a protein together with its component elastin is found in the dermis. Collagen is also present in our bones and in connective tissues. The collagen and elastin are the one responsible in providing a skin structure and a smooth and youthful face.
About Intrinsic Aging
Intrinsic aging is the process in which collagen production slows down as the American Academy of Dermatology mentioned. This gradual and continuous process starts when a person is in her mid-20s, but although signs of aging are not visible yet, it will be noticeable after a decade or two. During the aging process, collagen decreases quickly which causes visible fine lines, dry and itchy skin states the American Academy of Dermatology.
About Extrinsic Aging
Extrinsic aging is the process of aging which is caused by environmental and lifestyle factors. Primarily this is due to constant sun exposure for several years. The ultraviolet rays of the sun break down the skin’s collagen and as the AAD says, this can prevent the production of more collagen. Additionally, UV rays weaken the skin’s elastin which is the protein that provides stretch and spring in it. The states that smoking too can break down collagen which can lead to the development of wrinkles.
How to Protect Collagen Reserve
In order to maintain a healthy and youthful skin, you have to begin with basic care by drinking a lot of water in addition to eating a healthy diet. In addition, you may need to cleanse your skin two times a day and apply moisturizer whatever your skin type. On the other hand, made a list of adequate sun protection so as to protect the skin collagen. You may apply broad-spectrum sunscreen at least 30 minutes before going out under the sun. Avoid staying under the sun between 10AM and 4PM as this is when the UV rays of the sun are strongest. If you cannot avoid to, you must wear coverings on your arms and legs and must wear a wide-brimmed hat that covers your face and neck.
