Let’s talk Ageing, Collagen & Elastin

March 18, 2024

Ageing – it’s an inevitable journey we all embark upon as time ticks by. Yet, understanding its nuances can empower us to navigate it with grace and wisdom. One of the most visible markers of this journey is the changes our skin undergoes, owing to a complex interplay of genetics and environmental factors. Loss of adhesion between the dermis and epidermis creates physical changes as well as changes in fat distribution sometimes causing jowls and heavy nasal lines.

As women, the ageing process often feels like a double-edged sword, especially when it comes to collagen – the holy grail of youthful skin. Did you know that we begin losing collagen as early as our twenties, with a steady decline of 1% per year thereafter? The plot thickens post-menopause, where approximately 30% of our total collagen bids us adieu within the first five years. It’s this depletion of collagen that lays the groundwork for sagging skin and the unwelcome arrival of wrinkles.

At the heart of youthful skin lie two crucial proteins: collagen and elastin. While collagen provides the framework and resilience, elastin imparts elasticity and bounce, holding our skin cells in place with unwavering fortitude. Interestingly, up to 90% of the ageing process is attributed to enviro

Unfortunately, we cannot turn back the hands of time to reclaim lost collagen. But fear not, for there are avenues within reach to slow down this relentless march. Enter the realm of skincare rituals and supplements, where a strategic approach can make all the difference.

  1. Embrace the Power of Retinol: Incorporating retinol into your skincare arsenal can be a game-changer. Not only does it aid in exfoliation, but it also revs up collagen production, helping say goodbye to fine lines and wrinkles.
  2. Harness the Benefits of Collagen Supplements: Consider integrating collagen supplements into your daily routine – a simple addition, yet one that can yield significant results. Be sure to conduct thorough research to find the right fit for your needs. Intrametica Collagen is one of our faves in this department.
  3. Hyaluronic Acid – Your Skin’s Best Friend: Don’t underestimate the power of hyaluronic acid in your skincare regimen. This compound not only nourishes and hydrates but also serves as a catalyst for collagen production, promoting a youthful glow from within.
  4. Illuminate with LED Therapy: Dive into the realm of LED light therapy, particularly the red and near-infrared variants, to stimulate fibroblast cells and reignite collagen production. It’s a non-invasive approach that can yield remarkable results in your quest for age-defying radiance. Trudermal’s ‘Cell Rejuvenation’ mode is your go-to for this!

In essence, while ageing is an inevitable facet of life, how we choose to navigate its twists and turns is entirely within our grasp. By arming ourselves with knowledge and embracing proactive measures, we can rewrite the narrative of ageing – one radiant, collagen-infused moment at a time. So, here’s to unlocking the secrets of ageing, collagen, and elastin, and embarking on a journey of timeless beauty and self-discovery.
