Let’s face it: not everyone takes aging seriously in their 20s. As long as those wrinkles don’t show up, it’s the least of our skin-related worries (we already got pimples, blackheads and dull skin to worry about). But if you’ve entered your 30s and fine lines are starting to appear, it’s not too late. In fact, to make your skincare work better, what you need is to infuse this ingredient to your routine: collagen.
Skincare products with collagen aren’t anything new, but many don’t actually know what it is and why it is essential. For starters, it’s the protein found in your skin that keeps it looking supple. However, as you age, this is where it’s production in the body slows down–resulting to saggy skin and wrinkles. Luckily, there’s such a thing called “Collagen banking”, and local star Anne Curtis swears by it. Before reaching your 40s, stacking up as much collagen will help you retain a youthful-looking skin.
Here are two ways on how to do it:
1. Eat for bouncier skin
Your skincare will not be complete without healthy meals to match. For a boost of collagen, munch on foods like Kiwi fruits, goji berries, and broccoli. These are all packed with Vitamin C, which supports the process of collagen formation. You can also go for food that are rich on Omega such as fish.
2. Invest on a collagen drink
It’s not enough to simply slather a couple of lotions and potions. Instead, go deep within the skin and take the extra step of sipping on one Collagen Drink V bottle per day, which contains a chock full of skincare goodness (e.g. lingonberry and amla extracts). It’s key to rejuvenating your skin both inside and out. And on the plus side, it’s fat free and it comes with a mixed fruit flavor.
