Skin Health

Our skin is the largest organ of the human body and a good indicator of general health. Why then do so many wait for their skin to become dry, blotchy and wrinkled before they try to repair it?

Collagen comprises of about 80% of dry skin weight

Collagen is the major structural component of skin (mainly in the dermis). Collagen mainly influences the skin’s water binding capacity, elasticity and outside appearance (wrinkles).

Factors which can lead to collagen loss

Most people do not realise how important collagen is for their skin health. There are many things that can affect our collagen levels.

Hormonal imbalances & ageing. Loss of collagen starts at approximately 30 years & significantly increases after menopause (2% loss P.A)

Poor nutritional diet & high sugar intake. Sugar can trigger oxidative stress and the formation of free radicals which damage collagen fibres

Alcohol consumption and smoking
