It’s the night after a long day and you notice your skin needs a little TLC. To us, there’s nothing better than smooth, glowing skin. Well how do you achieve that? No conversation about skin care can be complete without the mention of collagen. Collagen makes up one-third of protein found within the human body and has a number of functions. It’s specific to hair, skin, bones and tissue, and works to provide skin with strength and elasticity. Collagen components are easy to lose however, through exposure to UV light, tobacco, excessive sugar consumptions or even as simply as through aging. For this reason, many swarm the drugstore in hopes of finding ways to boost their collagen production. Not to fear, we have some simple solutions that all come in the form of serums and products and are perfect for keeping your skin up to par with your kids’.
Vitamin A Retinoids
Retinoids are defined as the group of vitamin A derivatives that have been proven to unclog pores, stimulate collagen production and improve collagen density. Retinoic acid is the active ingredient that repairs photoaging and alleviates acne. The retinol within the serum works to build production of new, fresh skin cells. Vitamin A retinoids speed up the cell rejuvenation process and improve elasticity. If a serum isn’t really up your alley, don’t worry, you can still get a solid intake of retinoids through eating a variety of different meat and alternatives.

By now, you know that AHA’s are commonly used for anti-aging and reducing fine lines. However, they also penetrate the skin, stimulating collagen production and cell turnover.Their effects on both the epidermal and dermal layer of the skin are incredible, and they work wonders without causing inflammation. Citric acid, Glycolic acid and Malic acid are three examples of AHA serums that work well with the skin. After using these serums, your skin will be left looking firmer and more youthful, at its best day in and day out.

Vitamin C is essential for the synthesis and maintenance of collagen. Vitamin C deficiency and collagen deficiency can both have a serious effect on our health, so why not get the best of both worlds by adding Vitamin C to your skincare routine? Vitamin C acts as the glue that binds collagen fibres together, as without it, collagen production is not possible. The benefits of Vitamin C are increased when combined with Vitamin E. After using it regularly, you should start to see a difference in your skin as Vitamin C will likely make it glowier and stronger. Its brightening properties are not a force to be reckoned with.

Do you want our opinion? Hyaluronic acid and collagen are like a dream team. Complementing each other perfectly, hyaluronic acid enhances the body’s ability to produce and synthesize collagen. Just like collagen, the body’s ability to produce hyaluronic acid decreases with age. By using both daily, it’s a great way to regenerate and maintain healthy levels. Since hyaluronic acid has the ability to retain water, it plays an important part in keeping your skin looking fresh.
