The Wonders of Collagen

Posted by L. Bauer on 7th Mar 2018

Have you ever wondered why young people have such plump, dewy skin? And why your skin seems to get less plump and dewy as you age? The answer? Collagen.

Collagen is the most common protein found in your body. This strong, fibrous structure connects almost all the tissues of your body, including skin, muscles, tendons and bones. There are many different types of collagen and most are found in your skin. The most common types are type 1 and 3. Type 1 collagen is so strong, that it has been compared to steel. Type 3 collagen is not as strong as type 1, but together they do most of the work in connecting your skin tissue. Collagen is not only strong, but extremely flexible. This allows your body, especially your skin, to bend and flex without causing any damage.

Unfortunately, your body decreases collagen production as you age. In your mid to late 20’s, your body begins to slowly decrease production. By the time you reach your 50’s, you lose up to half of your body’s collagen. Without this strong and flexible protein, your skin loses elasticity and moisture. This causes wrinkles, sagging, dryness, and discoloration.

How do you help your skin regain elasticity, moisture, and a plump and dewy appearance? You can try expensive lotions or surgical procedures. These provide collagen from the outside. The problem is that collagen is too large to be absorbed through the skin. Using medical procedures is expensive, painful, and can lead to less than desirable results.

Instead of attacking your skin from the outside, you can work with your body to stimulate natural collagen production by using supplements. Drinking collagen, from bone broth to powders and drops, has become a popular way to supplement because it is quick and easy. It also shows results! Drinking collagen has been shown to improve skin’s moisture in as little as 3 months.(1)

If the thought of swigging down bone broth or chalky powders does not appeal to you, there is good news. Collagen drinks are becoming more popular. They taste better, contain multiple types of collagen, and often boast other vitamins and minerals as well.

Drinkable supplement supplier, Skin Drinx firmly believe that healthy skin comes from inside your body. They have a new product called Skin RepairX that is a super cocktail of good-for-you ingredients designed to heal and repair your skin. Skin RepairX boasts two types of collagen, types 1 and 3. The combination of these two collagens promises to reduce the appearance of scars, smooth skin, moisturize, and improve elasticity. Bonus: it tastes good too.

Skin RepairX is not just a collagen supplement. It also has other skin enhancing ingredients like silica, biotin, hyaluronic acid, vitamin C and vitamin B5. These vitamins and minerals all work together to reduce the signs of ageing like fine lines and wrinkles, hyper pigmentation, and promote regeneration of new, healthy skin.

Whether you are just starting to worry about your skin or have been trying for years to combat aging, supplementing with collagen is a safe, natural way to see results. You can work with your body and its natural proteins to reenergize your skin, instead of attacking it with harsh lotions or scary needles. Drinking collagen is an easy way to supplement every day. Look for drinks that use both collagen types 1 and 3, as well other vitamins and minerals to make your skin healthy. You will find that you can have plump, dewy skin, just like those young kids, in no time.
