Slow down the loss of Collagen

Slow down the loss of Collagen

You've probably heard about collagen, the protein that keeps our skin firm and supple. Unfortunately, it can start to break down as we age, which leads to wrinkles and other signs of aging. Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to slow this process down—and they don't involve plastic surgery!

 

 


Eat less processed foods

 

 

If you want to slow down the loss of collagen, it's important not to eat too much sugar. Sugar in any form can cause inflammation in your body that leads to collagen loss.

So what does this mean for your diet? It means cutting back on refined carbohydrates and added sugars, which have been linked directly with the breakdown of skin collagen. Other factors that speed up collagen breakdown include stress and smoking; both promote inflammation in our bodies which leads to further breakdown of collagen.

 

 


Sunscreen

 

  • Use sunscreen with a high SPF
  • Wear sun protection in all weather

UV rays are the #1 breakdown of collagen and elastin, two proteins that keep skin firm and smooth. That means if you want to avoid wrinkles and aging spots on your face or hands—and who doesn't?—you should be wearing sunscreen every day of year


Medical grade skincare

 

The best way to slow down the loss of collagen is to use medical grade skin care. Medical grade skin care will protect your skin from the sun and help you maintain a youthful appearance.

As we age, our bodies produce less and less collagen that can lead to fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Dermal fillers such as RADIESSE® are used by many people who want an easy way to look younger without going under the knife or having invasive procedures done.

RADIESSE® injections work by increasing volume, contour, definition but it also helps to increase collagen production in the treatment area as well!

 

 

 

 

So, be sure to use sunscreen as often as you can, limit your refined sugar intake, and try using a high-quality medical grade skincare like Zo. Skin health. With these simple steps in place, you can maintain your collagen and keep wrinkles at bay.
