What is the main difference between young skin and aged skin? One of the major differences that we see in aging skin is the loss of collagen. Often referred to as the lattice work of skin, collagen gives both support and firmness. The loss of collagen causes skin to sag and wrinkle and can vary depending on genetics and environmental damage, not necessarily occurring at a certain age.
So the question is: What can we do to prevent the loss of collagen? In healthy skin, within the dermis, the collagen and elastic provide structural support to the skin. As we are exposed to environmental damage such as UV rays, free radicals, pollution,smoke etc, those collagen fibers are broken down. Wearing sun protection (such as SPF 50) as well as layering a serum (such as C-Ester Topical VitaminC 10 or 20) to provide anti oxidant protection is ideal prevention. Another way to combat the collagen loss is to add-in the Dermaesthetics Beverly Hills Collagen Stemedic Serum)
