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.

It was difficult to spot the difference because you look at your face every morning. You stumble upon an old picture from college or even just five years ago. “My skin used to be so smooth and firm!” “Where did that saggy, extra skin come from underneath my chin?”

Skin issues can be emotionally difficult to deal with. We feel self-conscious when there is a giant, red pimple on our nose or when there are more dark spots and less firmness in our skin. It is the first thing people see and generally, we cannot hide it.

As a teenager, I struggled with acne and later in my twenties, I remember waking up one morning with dry, scaly patches on the bridge of my nose and on my neck. Seemingly overnight, I found myself dealing with moderately severe eczema.

People would ask, “What’s wrong with your neck? Did you get a really bad sunburn.” As much as I tried to convince myself that I was not self-conscious about my skin, these innocent comments from friends and family started to wear down on me.

I would hesitate to wear t-shirts because they exposed my neck, and I did not want to deal with the “innocent” comments or have to explain that I was not contagious. I tried different eczema creams and lotions but this was more than just dry skin.

As much as I disliked going to the doctor, my mom, who is a pharmacist, convinced me to make an appointment with my family physician. My doctor examined my skin and came back after 5 minutes with two tubes of medication—two different forms of topical steroid creams. He said, “Just apply these until the patches go away.”

“How long will I have to use these?”

“Probably off and on for the rest of your life.”

That just did not make any sense to me. This was one of those turning points in my life that started me down the path of looking for answers about what these symptoms mean and how to get to the root cause of the issue rather than just covering up the issue with medications.

Little did I realize, or did my family physician, that my form of eczema (also commonly called atopic dermatitis) was not primarily a skin disease, but rather a sign that my body’s internal environment was out of balance.

My mom was always the one encouraging myself and her customers at the pharmacy to use as few medications as possible. She promoted healthy lifestyle and nutrition because she understood that medications were not the answer to all health problems. You might see why I was inspired to look to a different approach to medicine. My holistic medical education at Bastyr University, an accredited naturopathic medical school, taught me to look at symptoms in the context of whole-body health.

Even if you do not have a skin condition, taking care of your internal environment will keep your skin healthy, radiant, and smooth. 

Let me explain.

Produced by fibroblasts, elastin is an important protein that enables our skin to return to its original shape after it stretches or contracts. Elastin fibers are like little rubber bands in the connective tissue throughout our bodies. Eventually, the fibers lose their ability to snap back.

Through the years, there are many things that can take a toll on your skin, including the sun, bad habits, and pollution. Exposure to these elements can damage the elastin fibers in your skin, which causes the skin to sag and stretch.

Loose skin and tissue under the upper arm area due to damaged elastin is a common issue. Flabby upper arm skin may make you feel reluctant to wear sleeveless shirts and swimsuits. Factors that contribute to sagging underarm skin include aging, smoking, genetics, and weight loss.

When your weight fluctuates, it can break or weaken the elastin fibers in the dermis, which results in the loss of tensile strength. Therefore, the skin is unable to bounce back and regain its original shape, similarly to when a rubber brand is stretched beyond its limit. If you lose weight and simultaneously lose muscle mass, this leads to a loss of tone that causes the skin in the underarm area to appear flaccid. 

Here are some tips for avoiding and treating sagging underarm skin.
