We all seem to have a rough idea of what collagen is, but do we really know? And does this elusive substance really work in skincare?
Collagen, naturally produced in our bodies, is a protein that provides strength and structure for our bones, skin, muscle and tendons.
Between the age of 20 and 40 the skin's collagen diminishes by up to 50 per cent. The loss of collagen – associated with aging - is the main cause of wrinkles, loss of muscle tone and sagging skin.
The best collagen face creams contain not only soluble collagen, but collagen boosting peptides, which have all been proven to increase one’s own collagen production.
Marine collagen combines deep antioxidant properties with amino acids for a powerful reparative effect. It contains Type I collagen, the foundation of our skin’s structure, accounting for 85% of our skin’s collagen.
Collagen face creams provide the skin with the essential proteins needed for it to stay plump and supple, making the creams an integral part of a well-balanced skincare regimen.
Swissline’s Luxe-Lift Creams contain hydrolized marine collagen which effectively moisturizes and delivers line-filling benefits. This pure form of solubilized collagen is used in combination with amino acids naturally occurring in silk.
This innovative association grants the collagen proteins the maximum power as most of the amino acids found naturally in silk are also the building blocks for the resilient collagen fibers found in the human skin.
By adding a concentrated collagen-based face or even eye serum to your skincare regimen you can maximize the effects of a collagen-based face cream. 360° Anti-Wrinkle Serum Triple Collagen Complex and 360° Anti-Wrinkle Eye Zone Serum Triple Collagen Infusion are excellent examples.
So, there you have it… a clear understanding of the function of collagen, the types of collagen, and its uses in skincare. Now, all you need to do is start using a collagen face cream, perhaps one from the award-winning Luxe-Lift collection, and together with a collagen-based serum, you will surely see wrinkles fade away and the skin get plumper!
