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.

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.
