Bye-bye, Botox. Say hello to collagen, a skin-friendly protein that is now being offered in liquid form to combat the signs of aging. Collagen is a group of naturally occurring proteins that provide the basis for strong connective tissues and youthful skin. Healthy collagen levels are what give young skin its strength, durability, and smooth, plump appearance. Collagen production reaches its peak when we hit our mid-20s, but from there, the collagen levels in our skin begin to decline. The result is thinner, less elastic skin and other signs of aging, like wrinkles, deep creases, and saggy areas around the mouth and neck.

The best way to maintain a healthy, youthful appearance is to protect the collagen you currently have by avoiding sun exposure and preventing free radical damage, but you can also protect collagen levels now and into the future by drinking liquid collagen. Marketed as an anti-aging product, liquid collagen formulas have been creating a buzz in skincare. Japanese women have been drinking liquid collagen to reduce fine lines and wrinkles for many years now, but Europeans and Americans have only jumped on the bandwagon recently.

How Liquid Collagen Supplements Work

Liquid collagen supplements allow you to sip your way to younger skin. They boost your body’s natural collagen production and replenish the collagen you lose during the aging process. The benefits of taking collagen supplements may include the following:

  • Erases fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improves hair and nail health
  • Improves the appearance of stretch marks and cellulite
  • Supports connective tissue and joint health
  • Provides relief from joint pain and stiffness

Typically, collagen supplements are made out of animal extract or fish extract. Animal extract collagen is generally derived from cow, chicken, or pig. Fish extract collagen is considered superior because the body is thought to absorb it more easily, owing to its lower molecular weight.

There are more than 20 types of collagen in the body. Type I Collagen is the most abundant type of collagen in the human body and is found in the bones, skin, tendons, and tissue. Research has shown that collagen supplements containing hydrolyzed Type I Collagen may increase collagen levels in the skin.

The amount of time it takes for someone to see results after taking a liquid collagen supplement varies, but most people see improvement in their skin within a few weeks to a month and a half. However, not all collagen supplements are created equal. If a collagen supplement is poorly absorbed, it will have no effect. That’s why it’s important to choose a collagen supplement made with the highest quality ingredients.

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.
