Collagen Replacement: The Truth Revealed
This scared me to death. Millions of people in our country are at the stage where they want to reverse the effects of aging from their skin and remove all wrinkles from it. This is a huge market which the cosmetic industry is exploiting in many ways. The scary part is, most of the people are unaware how they are being sucked into misinformation and marketing hype about Collagen replacement. It's time now to clear the air and call a spade, a spade.
After doing a lot of research about collagen replacement, I have uncovered some surprising facts.
You would already be aware how important Collagen and Elastin are our for our skin's youth and vitality. These two proteins are responsible for keeping our skin firm and elastic. A decrease in their levels with age is what causes all those lines and wrinkles to appear on your skin.
The cosmetic companies use this common knowledge to promote Collagen injections as an effective way to replenish this protein in your skin. What they do not tell you is that this is an unnatural way of increasing collagen in the skin. The injected protein does not mesh properly with the existing, complex collagen structures in the skin and just acts as a filler. Its effects begin to wear out after a few weeks and then you have to take the injection again. This cycle continues as long as you do not find a permanent solution for the wrinkles.
Another way the companies try to fool the consumer is by promoting skin creams containing collagen and elastin as ingredients. On the face of it, these creams may seem to be a good thing, as more collagen is good for the skin, right?
Fact is, collagen molecules are bigger in size than the pores in the skin. That means the collagen in such creams is not going to be absorbed by your skin and the cream is practically useless and ineffective as a way of collagen replacement.
So, what's the solution to this problem?
The solution is surprisingly simple. There are some effective natural substances out there that help in removing wrinkles from the skin permanently, by helping your body to naturally produce collagen.
To do so, you need to look for ingredients like Cynergy TK in any cream that you are looking to buy. This natural extract from the wool of New Zealand sheep has been found in studies to stimulate collagen and elastin production in the body.
Active Manuka Honey is another natural ingredient that helps in keeping the skin firm and elastic by enhancing the collagen and elastin regeneration in the skin. It is very effective at collagen replacement in the skin. It also acts as an anti oxidant and protects the skin from free radical damage.
Phytessence Wakame is a sea kelp from Japan that also helps in keeping the skin smooth and firm by preventing the breakdown of hyraluronic acid in it. It also nourishes the skin with vitamin B complex and minerals like iron, potassium and calcium.
Make no mistake about it. Use only a natural and permanent way for collagen replacement in your skin. Having a youthful and smooth skin is entirely possible; you just have to make the right choice.
