Collagen promotes skin strength, elasticity and the replacement of dead skin cells. It is the support structure that gives our skin a firm, young and fresh appearance.
With age the body produces less collagen and cell structures weaken. Smoking and UV light can further exacerbate this decline. The skin gets thinner, starts sagging, becomes less elastic and wrinkles begin to appear.
The good news is that the signs of aging can be slowed down if collagen levels are increased. In fact, it can even help to reverse the signs of aging by making the skin look smoother and firmer. This can help to not only delay the formation of wrinkles but also to make them fade away.
