Learn How Collagen Beauty Drinks Help Eliminate Stretch Marks
If you're like 80% of women in the world, you have stretch marks that you'd like to get rid of. Stretch marks are narrow lines or streaks that develop on the skin's surface. Although they don't pose any health risks, stretch marks are unsightly. Areas of the body where stretch marks commonly develop include the thighs, hips, buttocks, and stomach.
Stretch marks develop when the skin is stretched extensively for a short period of time. This rapid stretching causes the connective tissues and fibers of the dermis, or middle layer of the skin, to get damaged. The dermis is made up of interconnected fibers that allow your skin to stretch as your body grows. If your body grows rapidly in a short period of time, however, the fibers become thin and overstretched. They may break in some places, allowing deeper layers of skin to show through. New stretch marks are often red or purple, but they start to fade as time passes. Causes of stretch marks include the following:
  • Pregnancy
  • Rapid weight gain
  • Puberty
  • Bodybuilding
  • Hormone fluctuations
  • Family history of stretch marks
  • Rare, underlying health conditions
  • Prolonged or inappropriate use of corticosteroid medicines
The less collagen there is in your skin, the more likely you are to develop stretch marks. Collagen is a protein that binds skin cells together and keeps your skin supple. Your body produces less collagen as you age, resulting in the formation of wrinkles and stretch marks. Extreme stretching of the skin paired with a lack of collagen causes the dermis of your skin to tear.
It's important to ensure that your skin stays hydrated and pliable, which increases its capability to stretch.
The best treatment for stretch marks is prevention. It’s important to ensure that your skin stays hydrated and pliable, which increases its capability to stretch. Massaging moisturizer into your skin everyday can improve circulation and encourage new tissue growth, but true hydration happens from the inside, so good nutrition is key. Eating a balanced diet rich in vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids is critical to keeping your skin healthy. Vitamins and minerals that are essential to healthy skin include vitamin C, vitamin E, zinc, and silicon.
Prevent and Heal Stretch Marks with a Collagen Supplement

To prevent and heal stretch marks, your body needs more collagen, which provides the skin with the flexibility and resilience needed to withstand stretching. Consuming a   collagen beauty drink   on a regular basis can help reduce the appearance of stretch marks from the inside out. However, the collagen molecules in collagen creams cannot penetrate the skin because they are too large to be absorbed.
Collagen drinks are promising because they stimulate collagen production within the body, making your skin more supple and elastic. Not only does consuming collagen drinks fade the stretch marks you already have, it also prevents new ones from forming. It’s important to choose a collagen drink made with hydrolyzed marine collagen, which consists of highly soluble collagen peptides with a low molecular weight. This type of collagen offers improved digestibility and increased bioavailability. Compared to bovine and porcine collagen, marine collagen also contains higher levels of specific amino acids shown to be beneficial to the formation and health of connective tissue.
For the best results, select a collagen supplement that contains vitamin C, which helps create and strengthen collagen fibers. Vitamin C is one of the most powerful promoters of collagen synthesis. It works in concert with hydrolyzed collagen to maximize collagen formation. The best time to consume a collagen drink is at night on an empty stomach because all of the repair work occurs at a cellular level while you’re sleeping. After consuming collagen drinks for some time, you’ll likely notice your stretch marks getting lighter each day.

We all live for the summer months! Nothing is better than going to the lake, beach, or hanging out at the pool with your family and friends on a long, hot summer day. While this is therapeutic to the mind and spirit, it may not always be so great for your skin. And we all know that we’re supposed to wear sunscreen on the regular to help protect our skin from the sun’s damaging rays, but maintaining coverage and reapplying sunscreen is sometimes a task that escapes us while we are having fun. Unconsciously, we may end up with a sunburn, which is a clear indicator of immediate skin damage. This damage accumulates over time, and accelerates the skin aging in all of us, resulting in dark/sun spots (hyperpigmentation), and contributes to other subcutaneous skin structure breakdown that leads to lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. Which is a major bummer for our beauty goals.

Aging is kind of a bummer, am I right? 

Even though our mothers gave us the heads-up that things are going to change, we then wake up one morning (approx. age 35 for me) and realize that 1) Things HAVE changed, along with 2) Mom was right…AGAIN . And unfortunately, our skin is usually where we see the effects of aging in our bodies first. From dryness, to volume loss and fine lines, to perhaps even the oh-so-unfair adult onset acne, time has a way of wreaking havoc on our once pristine skin. 

But the great news is, we can reduce these effects by nourishing our skin from the inside, out. And as a registered dietitian, I’m here to provide a few proven nutrition tips and real-life tricks, to nourish your skin to help keep it glowing and healthy for years to come.

Protecting your skin from the sun is important, no matter what time of year it is, but it’s especially vital in the summertime. While you might want to bare your skin in the summer to achieve a beautiful, sun-kissed complexion, UVA and UVB radiation from the sun can wreak havoc on your skin and cause premature aging if you aren’t careful.

UVA rays, which account for 90 to 95 percent of the UV radiation that reaches the earth, penetrate deep layers of the skin and cause tanning. UVB radiation accounts for only 5 to 10 percent of solar radiation, but it damages the epidermis, or surface layer of the skin, causing sunburn.

  UVA rays cause the collagen in your skin to break down at a higher rate than normal aging . They do this by penetrating the dermis, or middle layer of the skin, and lead to the abnormal buildup of elastin. This elastin accumulates and results in the production of enzymes that break down collagen.

The more sun exposure you get, the worse the damage becomes. UV radiation also creates free radicals, which are unstable oxygen molecules that increase the number of enzymes that break down collagen. An excessive amount of free radicals in your body can also weaken your vascular system, cause poor circulation, and lead to deteriorated eye health.
