Collagen Is King (or Queen)

Chances are you have heard of collagen. If you are a skincare aficionado, you also probably know it is a key ingredient in many lines of anti-aging skincare. It is time to take a closer look at the benefits of collagen and learn why it may be a good idea for you to include it in your skincare routine.


What Is Collagen?


Collagen is a plentiful protein in the human body—the most common, in fact. It is everywhere, from the muscles and tendons to the bones and skin. Quite simply, it holds your body together. However, this natural substance weakens over time due to a variety of health and environmental conditions.


Facts About This Vital Protein


There is a great deal of talk about this natural protein, but how much do you actually know about it?  


  • Some sorts of collagen filaments are more powerful than steel.
  • Natural production of this connective material wanes as you get older.
  • Smoking and UV rays also interfere with the creation of new collagen threads.
  • This naturally occurring substance is helpful in wound care, because it attracts new cells to damaged areas of the body.

As you learn more about collagen and the role it plays, you catch a glimpse of what an exquisitely intricate and beautiful machine the human body is.  


Anti-Aging Skincare


There are many types of collagen, with about 29 individual kinds recorded. Most of it, however, supports smooth, elastic skin as well as healthy organs, tendons, and bones.


Anti-wrinkle creams and treatments are not a new concept. As far back as 3,000 years ago, creams containing the precious oil of frankincense were trusted to slow down the aging process by the Egyptians. Romans combined starch and eggs for facial treatments, and masks containing lemon juice and eggs were a popular treatment in the 16th century.


Today, an increasing number of people favor supplements as well as skincare that feed the body this key element. If you are concerned about dull, sagging skin, fine lines, and wrinkles, try a facial care regime that is rich with this natural material. LaLa Daisy has a large selection of products you and your skin are sure to love.


Cleansers


Proper cleansing is vital for any skincare routine. Before any other treatments can be expected to work, your skin must be gently but thoroughly cleaned. The right cleanser supports natural collagen health and cares for your facial skin as it cleans.


Creams


Look for collagen-rich creams that are made with other healthy, nourishing ingredients as well, including Manuka honey, antioxidants, and copper peptides. The best creams, such as Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Ultra Rich Cream, benefit your skin in multiple ways, providing moisture and supporting collagen production to reduce the look of wrinkles.


Do not forget a treatment for fine lines and dark circles around your eyes. This delicate area needs moisture and anti-wrinkle support as does your facial skin. Choose an eye gel that helps restore a dewy fresh look to fragile under eye skin.

A great way to experience the benefits of collagen is with an anti-aging skincare kit. You get a range of products that deliver a complete anti-wrinkle routine. You are able to try items and see how they work for you without making a big initial commitment.


These kits also are great when you are traveling. Your skincare need never suffer or be left behind, no matter where you are.


Facial Masks


Face masks are a great way to nourish, repair, moisturize, and brighten your skin. Whether you want to look radiant for a party or wind down after a long day, there is a mask for that.


Traditionally, masks are not made for the delicate skin around your eyes. However, some anti-aging skincare lines now include collagen-rich eye masks that are filled with soothing ingredients.


Anti-Aging Hair Care


You may not have considered that, over time, your hair and scalp also need support to stay healthy, elastic, and younger-looking. There are terrific products that promote hair health, such as nutrient-filled oils.

Nourishing Botanical Oil

Beautiful hair begins with a healthy scalp. Pair a treatment serum with a gentle shampoo free of sulfates and harsh, irritating ingredients and a moisturizing conditioner that nourishes both your hair and scalp. A careful hair care routine can make a big difference in your overall appearance.


Sun Protection


Since UV rays can break down your skin’s collagen over time, always choose effective sun protection. It should be part of your daily skincare routine.


The good news is that today’s sunscreen products actually do care for your skin while protecting it. Before heading out to the beach, grab a sun protection kit filled with items that supply your skin with nutrients and fend off collagen-killing UV rays.


Additional Tips


Here are a few more tips to help you enjoy the best skin of your life.


  • Always treat your neck, throat, and décolleté daily, whenever you care for your face. This means proper and gentle cleansing, treatment with masks and serums, and moisturizing with collagen-rich creams.
  • Drink plenty of water throughout the day. Doing so benefits your entire body as well as your skin. Your skin is, after all, your largest organ.
  • Pat serums and creams onto your face, neck, and décolleté to avoid stretching your skin.
  • Always wash your hands before beginning your skincare routine, and never put unwashed hands into a jar of cream or other skin care items.
  • Perform a skincare routine twice daily, morning and evening.
  • Never go to bed with an unwashed face. No matter how busy you are, always take a few minutes for proper facial care.
  • A gentle facial routine at night not only nourishes your skin, when the largest portion of its repair work is done, but it also helps relax you before bed.

The Skinny on Collagen


Collagen-rich facial care helps your skin look its best. For a powerful anti-aging routine, choose products in which this material is paired with other natural ingredients that moisturize and protect your skin. LaLa Daisy has a great selection of collagen products as well as anti-aging makeup, so order everything you need today for a beautiful, younger-looking tomorrow!
