Why You Should Combine Collagen With Vitamin C & Hyaluronic Acid
It is common knowledge that your collagen levels are depleted starting from the age of around 25. This has largely to do with the fact that our skin gets wrinkled with age due to hormonal changes that makes the skin drier and less elastic than before. Collagen is the major protein making up the matrix that provides strength and elasticity in the skin. What a lot of people don't know is that both Vitamin C and Hyaluronic acid also can play a huge complimentary role in your skincare routine when combined with Collagen. The use of Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid and Collagen together is often touted by health- and skincare experts as the "ultimate trio" to optimal skincare.
This article is about supplements. Dietary supplements should not replace a varied diet and a healthy lifestyle.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a molecule naturally produced by the body that’s found in bones, connective tissue, cartilage, hair follicles, and skin. Its main function is to retain water to keep your tissues well lubricated and moist. A lot of people takes Hyaluronic Acid as a supplement, but it is also widely used in other products such as topical serums, eye drops and injections. Around half of the hyaluronic acid in your body is present in your skin, where it binds to water in order to help retain moisture. Hyaluronic Acid has been scientifically proven to:
- Increase skin moisture
- Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Smoother skin
What is Vitamin C?
Vitamin C is considered one of the safest and most effective nutrients. Vitamin C has been shown to fend off the signs of aging because of its vital role in the body's natural collagen synthesis. It helps to heal damaged skin and, in some cases, reduces the appearance of wrinkles. On top of that, vitamin C is an antioxidant, meaning it protects skin cells from damaging free radicals caused by UV exposure. The antioxidant properties of Vitamin C and its role in collagen synthesis make Vitamin C a vital molecule for skin health.
Vitamin C is scientifically proven to stimulate your bodies' own collagen production.
Vitamin C - So what does the science says?
Studies show that the usage of Vitamin C were able to stimulate production of more collagen. Surprisingly, the cells that make collagen grew faster in response to vitamin c. In theory, more collagen producing cells might make more collagen for the skin. Another study showed that people who applied Vitamin C with a concentration between 3% and 10% showed a statistically significant reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.
Why Collagen, Vitamin C & Hyaluronic Acid is called "The ultimate trio" of skincare!
It’s not a coincidence these ingredients have been touted "The ultimate trio of skincare". Hyaluronic acid helps keep the skin moisturized while Vitamin C stimulates the bodies own ability to produce Collagen. Adding Collagen to this powerful combination acts like a foundation for the two ingredients while at the same time making sure your skin is constantly getting that collagen "refill" that it needs.
Finding a product that contains all these ingredients in one single serving can be tricky. In fact, a lot of people are actually often forced to buy all these ingredients separately making it both expensive and difficult. We're happy to inform you that this is no longer needed.
