Hyaluronic Acid and Collagen - The Anti-aging Essentials To Add To Your Moisturising Routine
Have you ever wondered the reason behind skin-aging? What causes your skin to show signs of aging? Dermis, the thickest layer of the skin, is responsible to provide the strength, flexibility and resistance to the skin and in the aging process.
The dermis consists of Collagen, Elastin, Hyaluronic Acid and Fibroblasts in the form of a net, which if destroyed will cause the skin to lose its elasticity and signs of skin aging will start to appear. We often hear about Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid being used in many skincare products today, but do you really understand the benefits and how they work for you? Not to worry - we are going to resolve the confusion about this beauty ambiguity, and help you understand how to slow down the aging signs on your skin.
Radiant and youthful looking skin depends highly on how elastic and flexible your skin is – and Collagen can help us improve this. But what is Collagen and how does it work?
What is Collagen?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body that makes an essential building block for your skin. It makes up 70% - 90% of your skin and helps contribute to the elasticity and firmness of your skin. Good news is, Collagen is naturally produced by your body but the bad news is, the production declines and the existing collagen will start to break down as you age, causing wrinkles, fine lines and discolouration to appear.
Though the natural production of Collagen declines as you age, Collagen can also be derived from other sources such as marine, porcine, bovine and chicken sources - and the best type to use for our skin is Marine Collagen.
How does Marine Collagen work on our skin?
Proven as the most effective Collagen for the skin, Marine Collagen is also the most identical to the Collagen that our skin naturally produces. Having it in your skincare will help restore the loss Collagen and aside from increasing skin elasticity, it is also great for healing wounds and skin regeneration, promoting even skin tones and reducing scars!
The ISCHIA Miracle Marine Collagen range contains highly-enriched Marine Collagen that helps improve the overall tone, texture and firmness of your skin.
Well-hydrated skin is always the slowest to age. However, as we age our skin loses its natural ability to retain water which decreases the skin elasticity and encourages the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic Acid is like a magnet for your skin moisture - it helps to retain water in your skin. Worry not because it is not harmful at all - in fact it is the key to healthy and radiant skin, even our skin cells naturally produce it! However, due to many factors such as aging and exposure to the sun, its production declines over time, and that is why topical application of it through daily skincare needs to come to the rescue!
How does it work on your skin?
Hyaluronic acid penetrates deeply into the dermal layer to lock in skin moisture, resulting in a more supple and youthful looking skin. The presence of Hyaluronic Acid in your daily skincare complements the Collagen function in your skin to enhance the production of it; it fills up the Collagen and pulls water 1,000 times of its own weight, which contributes to total anti-aging skin benefits.
ISCHIA Magic Gel Masks are enriched with 50,000ppm of 99.67% pure ophthalmic Hyaluronic Acid to give your skin double the moisturising effect - just the perfect hydration boost your skin needs!
