How drinking the right kind of collagen can help with wrinkles

How drinking the right kind of collagen can help with wrinkles
Being youthful is not about how you look, but having beautiful skin sure does help! Years of wear and tear take their toll on your skin, especially the delicate facial skin. Environmental damage from pollution and over-exposure to the sun penetrate deep into the skin, destroying collagen and weakening the skin's cellular structure. Wrinkles and sagging are the result, and these steadily increase as you age.
What is Collagen?
Collagen is one of the most important and abundant proteins in the human body, forming a kind of framework for the building of tissues throughout the body. The skin contains the highest concentrations of collagen, with the dermis layer of the skin comprised of nearly 70% collagen.
Types of Collagen
Collagen is not only abundant in the body, it is diverse, with 28 different types working together throughout the body. In the dermis, the collagen is either Type I or Type III.

Type I collagen is the most common type of collagen in the body. It is also the strongest form of collagen, providing not only support for the skin but also for the joints. Type III collagen is often found alongside Type I and is the second most abundant form of collagen in the body. Type III is also present in the dermis layer, as well as in internal organs and blood vessels. Type III collagen is sometimes referred to as "baby collagen" because it is responsible for the plump skin so admired in young children. As we age, though, Type III begins to lose its elasticity, eventually converting into Type I, which is stiffer.
Collagen and Aging
When we are born, our bodies are filled with collagen. The characteristic smooth, rosy, plump skin of a baby is testament to the wealth of collagen in the dermis. Beginning in puberty, though, we gradually begin to lose the collagen in our bodies, with production of new collagen completely stopping by our late 20's.
Collagen levels begin to steadily decrease as early as our 20's, leading to wrinkles, sagging skin and dullness.

In our 30's, the levels of collagen present in our bodies begins a slow and steady decline, dropping up to 2% every year. Around this time is when those fine lines and wrinkles may begin to appear on the face. By age 40 the decrease has hit 10%-20%, and by 50 nearly half of all our collagen is gone.
Ingestible Collagen Supplementation
Collagen has been injected into aging skin for years, temporarily rejuvenating the skin around the injection site. However, injectable collagen does not prevent wrinkles. Recently, though, an ingestible liquid form of collagen has been making its way into Europe and the United States.

Liquid collagen supplements are taken in the same manner as other vitamin supplements. They boost your body's natural collagen production abilities and replenish the collagen that the body is losing as it ages. Taking liquid collagen supplements may erase fine lines and wrinkles; reduce the appearances of cellulite and stretch marks; and improve the health and appearance of your hair and nails. Collagen supplementation also can provide relief for stiff and painful joints by supporting and strengthening the connective tissues around the joints, as well as the joints themselves.
Liquid collagen drinks are an effective way to improve the skin from the inside out.

Ingestible collagen supplements are made out of either fish or animal extracts. Fish-based collagens are considered the best quality because their lower molecular weight appears to make them easier for the body to absorb. Absorption is the key to successful collagen supplementation, and a high quality liquid collagen supplement can improve the skin in as little as a few weeks.

Collagen taken on its own has some positive effects, but consuming liquid collagen in combination with vitamins and antioxidants maximizes its anti-aging benefits. LAC Taut collagen drink contains a potent mixture of hydrolyzed marine collagen, as well as vitamin C, coenzyme CoQ10, chondroitin sulfate, hyaluronic acid, ceramide and DNA that have been proven to restore the skin, preventing future wrinkles and restoring not only the look of youth, but the feeling as well.

A decline in the look and feel of our skin, and the rest of our bodies, comes with the process of aging. With external factors and free radicals wreaking havoc as well, our skin can become a poor reflection of how we actually feel inside. The pursuit of a means to preserve and restore our skin has led many to go under the needle or knife, but there is a better way. Liquid collagen supplements offer you the chance to replenish and restore the body's collagen levels in a more natural way.

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.
