We all know that looking and feeling beautiful starts with a royal portion of self-love and of course, good skincare. While our beauty regime nowadays might rely on cosmetic procedures, hair appointments, and makeup to upgrade our looks, the basic building block of that desired radiant glow is clear and healthy skin that is treated with love and care.
So, what can you do to achieve healthy and youthful-looking skin? According to Labareau founder and leading skin expert Lindsay Van Der Looij, the answer is simple. It’s time to stock up on collagen.
But before we discuss how to best consume collagen, let’s first take a closer look at the functioning of the popular protein itself.
How does collagen work?
For those of you that have somehow missed the hype that promises the key to youthful-looking skin; collagen is a natural fiber in your body that enhances your beauty by preventing sagging skin, fine lines, and wrinkles. Collagen and elastin are two essential proteins that not only strengthen your skin, but also make your muscles, bones, muscle tissue, hair, and nails a lot stronger. No wonder we love collagen so much!
Other benefits of collagen for your skin specifically include:
- Improving skin tightness
- Boosting moisture and hydration of the skin
- Promoting elasticity and fair skin tone
- Maintaining plump and full-looking skin
- Helping skin cells to renew themselves
It’s probably no secret that in today’s society, looking beautiful and youthfulness go hand in hand. But as we get older, it simply requires more effort to fight the visible signs of aging.
This is due to a decrease in collagen production. Although our bodies are capable of naturally producing collagen, we start producing less elastin and collagen once we age. According to dermatologists, collagen production significantly decreases by our mid-twenties, and signs of aging begin to appear. That’s why skin experts recommend to start using collagen serums already in your twenties. In that way, you can prevent early signs of aging and hold on to that healthy, younger-looking skin!
How to protect your natural collagen for healthy-looking skin:
- Stop smoking
- Limit exposure to UV sun rays and always wear sunscreen
- Drink enough water – hydration is key for a glowing skin
- Avoid heavy alcohol use
- Stick to a healthy diet, especially fruits and vegetables that are high in vitamin C
Collagen for smooth and elastic skin: Labareau’s collagen-boosting serums
Collagen is often taken in supplement forms, such as pills, powders, and liquids. Just like any other supplements – you can buy them at your local drugstore. When ingesting collagen in supplement form, the substance is broken down by amino acids and absorbed into the bloodstream. Consequently, your entire body will benefit from the collagen boost, from your bones to muscles and your hair to nails. However, if you want to use collagen to reverse visible signs of aging, scientists widely debate the effectiveness of merely taking collagen in supplement form.
If you are explicitly on a mission to achieve firmer and younger-looking skin, dermatologists and skin experts recommend applying collagen-based serums on your face as soon as possible. Collagen supplements will strengthen the collagen in the joints of your body, but collagen serums will give your skin that radiant glow you are looking for.
The groundbreaking anti-aging skincare line LABAREAU promotes two collagen-based serums that have been clinically trialed and tested to ensure smooth and elastic skin all year long. Both The Day Formula and The Night Formula by Labareau stimulate the rejuvenating of the skin by restoring its capacity to produce collagen and elastin. The driving factor behind this innovative skincare line is LABAREAU’s uniquely formulated SAXZ-12®️ technology, which promotes the formation of powerful and highly concentrated ingredients. Clinically proven results demonstrate how both serums leave you with visible anti-aging effects, such as the appearance of wrinkles, pores, and fine lines to be significantly reduced. Meanwhile, the skin optically becomes more beautiful by looking and feeling more smooth, plump, and firm.
Ultimately, collagen-based serums such as The Day and Night Formula will help to naturally stimulate collagen and elastin in your skin tissue, resulting in healthy and glowing skin. That’s why we recommend taking both collagen supplements and collagen serums to get the best anti-aging effects. Don’t forget to include your neck and decolleté when using our premium serums for optimal results.
