Antiaging Skin Care Collagen Who

Antiaging skin care articles have a Ms. Collagen that appears every time. After researching on how Ms. Collagen has such a vital affect on our skin I decided to look her up in the dictionary. Their definition of her is "a fibrous protein found in connective tissue, bones, and cartilage.

" To understand just what part Ms. Collagen plays in the antiaging skin care cycle we have to delve into what makes her so important. Collagen is the main supporting substance that's produced in the dermis or inner skin. Collagen formation and breakdown takes place inside that inner skin lying beneath the thin outer skin called the epidermis. In younger people the collagen is firm and abundant.

Unfortunately as we grow older, the collagen structure begins to fall away creating wrinkles, deeper creases, that horrible sagging neck, and those baggy areas around the eyes. Increasing collagen loss also causes the elderly to bruise more easily and to be subject to skin tears. Is there something we can do to minimize the negative affect that this breakdown of collagen has on our skin? The answer is yes. A great study published by some University of Michigan scientists that gives us hope. Their research has shown that as our skin ages, there is an increased production of the enzyme collagenase which breaks down collagen. Fibroblasts (cells in the skin that are the main producers of collagen) are an important part in firm and healthy skin.

If they lose their normal stretched state they can actually collapse resulting in additional breakdown enzymes being produced. In one of their studies they tested lotions containing retinal, a form of vitamin A, and found it reduced wrinkles and skin roughness by promoting new collagen. There are also professional procedures available such as topical retinoic acid or injections of cross-linked hyaluronic acid. Collagen injections, derived from the skin of cows, works by puffing up the lower skin levels, stretching the outer level, thus helping to remove wrinkles and fine lines. It is important to note, that collagen gels, derived from the skin of cows, does not work when applied directly to the skin as the skin pores cannot absorb it. You would need to talk to your health care professional about this antiaging skin care treatment or any others, for that matter.

If you are looking for products that are alternatives to chemically created ingredients look for natural skin care products. Botanical or natural skin care products are created from plant extracts. One ingredient to look for in natural skin care products is keratin. Cynergy TK is a patented form of keratin which tests have shown stimulated collagen growth, regenerate elastin and increase production of new skin cells.

There is always that big question, "What should I look for in an anti-aging skin care product?" The first word of advice I would give is to be very cautious. Finding a good product on the internet can be difficult as you need to be able to evaluate whether there are any ingredients listed in the fine print on the label that might be harmful. An example of one of these ingredients is the preservative Parabens. Although it is believed to drive cancer tumor growth there are some companies still using it in their anti-aging skin care creams. I would say your best bet would be to research any product you intend to buy or to talk to an expert at your local vitamin or health food store. Whatever you decide to do start today as every month you wait has Ms.
