The Building Blocks of Skin

If you follow the anti-aging beauty industry you hear a lot about hyaluronic acid injections, collagen injections, and even fat injections into lips, cheeks, and areas of the forehead that have lines. The effort that all these injections have in common is to make the skin look fuller so that it will not show wrinkles and lines. But how does the skin lose fullness to begin with, and is there a way to restore the skin’s natural fullness and suppleness?

To understand the needs of your skin, the first thing you must be introduced to is collagen. Collagen is one of the most abundant proteins in the human body and it is what connective tissue is made of. It holds together skin, ligaments, cartilage and more. Anywhere the body needs something to be flexible and smooth, you will find collagen. You will also find hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic Acid has a very specific role to play in the renewal of collagen and the body’s ability to retain moisture necessary for smooth functioning.

When we are young, the body has plenty of collagen and hyaluronic acid and knees work smoothly, faces look unlined and radiant. As time goes by, collagen stores are depleted and the body makes less collagen and hyaluronic acid. How can that be reversed. First, you can have collagen directly injected where you want it. There are several drawbacks to that method. We’ve all seen actresses with bloated, unnatural looking faces and heard the stories of unexpected infections or injections that migrate. There is also the bruising and pain, and worst, the treatment is temporary.

But there are ways of encouraging the body to create collagen. One is to use a hyaluronic acid moisturizer which both promotes collagen production and restores moisture. That’s using the skin’s own natural method. The other is to use a face cream that includes peptides. Peptides are amino acids that are necessary for certain chemical exchanges to take place in the human body. When you utilize these peptides on skin, they help the skin to renew itself just the way it did when it was younger. No bruising, no swelling, no unsightly misshapen results. Just skin, feeling and acting much more like itself 20 years ago.
