Why collagen may be the boost your skin routine needs

The quick and easy answer for when you can’t quite nail the glowy complexion you’re seeking.

There’s no doubt about it, skincare these days can be very confusing.

With a bazillion (or so it seems) high-tech ingredients to choose from, our skincare routines are so much more now than simply cleansing, toning and moisturising.

Which means it be can totes easy to miss a crucial component in your beauty arsenal!

The importance of collagen

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body and in fact, 25 to 35 per cent of all of the protein in our bodies is collagen.

Even more importantly – for those of us coveting a dewy and radiant glow – 70 per cent of our skin is made up of this group of fibrous proteins.

Collagen is what gives skin its strength and resiliency and its plump, youthful appearance.

Minimising collagen loss with age

As we grow older, natural collagen supplies in our bodies begin to wane, changing our skin’s appearance.

Skin can become thinner and drier, and start to develop sags and wrinkles. The growth of new skin cells also slows down, contributing to that dreaded dull-coloured skin tone.

From our mid-20s, collagen production drops 1.5 per cent each year. By 40 you’ve lost 25 per cent and by 60 years, a whopping 50 per cent.

While most people reach for topical anti-ageing products, it can be just as helpful to make sure you’re boosting collagen levels from within.

These days fortunately, with science on our side, we can do exactly that with products like Nature’s Way Beauty Collagen range.
