Collagen is a protein present in all the body’s organs and tissues. Collagen’s primary function is to sustain tendons, cartilage, and skin. This valuable protein, made up of amino-acids, gives the skin structure, firmness and elasticity. Collagen is an important building block for the skin. It makes up to 30% of the protein in our body and 70% of the protein within our skin. Collagen helps our skin stay toned and supple.
The dermis, which provides the foundation for the skin, is closely involved in the skin’s elasticity and flexibility, and the main source of collagen in the skin. Getting an adequate amount of collagen helps to ensure our skin looks glowing and healthy.
When we get older, the production of collagen begins to slow down. As a result, skin can become fragile and less elastic. In addition, hair starts losing its color, joints aren’t as flexible and bones may lose their density. Supplementing with collagen may help you improve your body’s collagen levels.
Exposure to the sun breaks down the collagen levels in the skin. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen and therefore, we are not as effective in repairing the damage caused by the sun and other elements. Retinol helps normalize these functions.
Research clearly shows that retinol, the technical name for vitamin A, has truly astounding anti-aging benefits for skin.
Over 40 years of established research shows retinol products can help visibly diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles, increase the appearance of firmness, improve uneven skin tone, smooth and refine the surface of skin, boost collagen, and help mitigate the effects of environmental stressors.
Retinol is no stranger to the skincare industry. In fact, it was first used in the 70’s as a treatment for acne. But it didn’t take long for experts to realize that retinol is also effective for reducing discoloration and diminishing wrinkles and brown spots. While retinol has been found to be one of the most effective ingredients in combating the signs of aging, collagen is the component that gives your skin its natural elasticity. By adding the natural benefits of CBD as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory an anti-aging powerhouse formula has been developed.
Studies indicate CBD has significant anti-aging benefits as a potent antioxidant reducing damage caused by free radicals, such as pollution, that can dull our skins natural glow. CBD reduces these free-radicals and slows the aging process, allowing your skin to appear firm, healthy and youthful. CBD encourages oil excretion. As oil glands dry up, fine lines and wrinkles become more noticeable. This also makes CBD an effective treatment for eczema and psoriasis. Finally, CBD is shown to have anti-inflammatory properties, which helps relax the skin and calm it down so that the fine lines and wrinkles don’t show as much. These same anti-inflammatory characteristics make CBD ideal for fighting unwanted puffiness of your skin.
Vitamin C is an antioxidant that slows the rate of free-radical damage which are unstable molecules that damage collagen and cause skin dryness, fine lines and wrinkles. Adding Vitamin C to your skin care increases collagen production in the skin which helps reduce wrinkles. In addition, Vitamin C is credited for brightening and tightening skin while also reducing the negative effects of sun exposure and finally it helps your skin repair itself naturally.
Whether you are young, middle aged, a senior citizen, man or woman, there is no time like the present to begin caring for your skin. Using a skin care product that contains the proven components such as collagen, retinol, CBD and vitamin C can help reduce the negative effects environmental stressors have on our skin. Used regularly, our BioCare powerhouse formulas may prove to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, increase skin tone, and help your skin repair itself naturally.
