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.
Liquid collagen supplements rejuvenate natural collagen levels and help to preserve the skin's youthful quality as it ages.

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.

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.
