How much do you know collagen in skin?

Now many girls are inseparable from two things. The first is to become beautiful. And the second is to lose weight. Girls who love beauty know the importance of collagen in skin. But what exactly does it do?  Let's discuss it together.

What is collagen?

collagen in body

Collagen is one of the main components of human tissue structure. It is the most abundant protein in the human body and is found in all tissues and organs of the body. It pervades all tissues and organs of the body, such as skin, bone, cartilage, ligament, cornea, various intima , fascia and so on. Moreover, it is the main component to maintain the morphology and structure of skin and tissues, as well as an important substance to repair the damaged tissues.

Why do women lose collagen in skin?

collagen in skin

There is 70 % collagen in skin. Collagen forms the skin's "elastic web," providing elasticity and firmness and acting as a "deep reservoir," supplying moisture to the epidermis.However, collagen is gradually lost with age, and without collagen, the skin can suffer from aging problems such as wrinkles, sagging and enlarged pores.

Female physiology determines that women consume more collagen than men.After the period, the endometrium is shed and the damaged uterus needs to be repaired. And the endometrium is made up of collagen fibers, so you need a lot of collagen.Childbirth also causes damage to the uterus, which also depletes collagen.Most women begin to lose collagen at the age of 20, and the level of collagen decreases year by year. The peak of collagen loss occurs at 25, and the collagen level at 40 is less than half of that at 18.The most direct impact of the loss of collagen is the atrophy and collapse of skin tissue, resulting in dryness, roughness, relaxation, wrinkles, thick pores, spots and other aging phenomena.

When do you start taking collagen for skin?

Everyone starts to lose collagen in skin at the age of 20. Due to the change of modern environment and conditions, many people stay up late, do not have sun protection, free radical damage and other factors, which lead to the premature loss of collagen. After the age of 25, collagen loss starts to double. The skin's slow loss of elasticity reduces the ability of epidermal cells to divide, resulting in fewer cells in the spinous layer, which makes skin look rough and dull. This phenomenon becomes more pronounced during menopause.
