Beautiful healthy skin is what many men and women strive for, especially as the years pass. What are some secrets to helping skin look and feel better?
"Much of the answer starts with collagen," says Kathy Heshelow, founder of Sublime Beauty®. "Collagen levels are essential for maintaining smooth, plump skin but unfortunately, we lose collagen each year. By age 30, we have lost about 15% of our collagen and by age 60, about 45%! This contributes to wrinkles, lines, thinning and sagging."
Boosting collagen levels, or supporting the synthesis and production of more collagen while protecting it is one of the best secrets to younger skin (in addition to using sunscreen against photo-aging damage.)
There are three general areas that help collagen production and synthesis:
1) Exfoliate with Retinol to slough away old skin, allow regeneration of new collagen and assist with repair of photoaging.
2) Use products with exceptional peptides that are clinically proven to boost collagen levels, such as the peptide Matrixyl. Sublime Beauty® offers a Collagen Peptide Serum with Matrixyl, a night cream with Matrixyl and a day cream with Trylagen that boosts and protects collagen.
3) Provide adequate amounts of Vitamin C. Clinical studies have shown that exposing the skin fibroblasts to Vitamin C can help boost collagen production by as much as 800 percent. Sublime Beauty's Retinol Serum has 5% Vitamin C. In addition, the company is introducing a Vitamin C collection in the next month.
Those who are serious about healthy and youthful skin will work on boosting and protecting their collagen levels, says Heshelow. "All of our products that boost collagen are currently on sale, because we think these products are important for the consumer."
