Marine Collagen for Skin
While some might say that beauty is only skin deep, it is important to remember that our skin is the largest organ in our body. Shouldn’t you care for it in the same manner that you care for your other vital organs? A skin regimen based on topical products is very important, but that’s only taking into account half of the picture. And that’s where ingredients such as marine collagen can make a real difference.
The skin is made up of collagen and elastin, powerful proteins that give the skin its elasticity and youthful appearance. These proteins are produced by special cells in the dermis, the second layer of skin.
Despite the body’s natural ability to produce collagen and elastin, our levels can decline due to a number of influences, including everything from daily stress to sunlight exposure. As collagen decreases in our body, it can lead to premature fine lines, wrinkles, and saggy skin. Collagen levels have been shown to drop by about 1% each year for both men and women, especially when they reach their mid-20s or early 30s.
We can’t help ageing, but does it mean there’s nothing we can do? Quite the opposite!
Award winning collagen supplements to revitalise your skin
Healthy skin can be achieved through a variety of means, and the most important ones are, of course, a healthy diet and a balanced lifestyle. By taking the right supplement, you can also ensure your body is consuming enough collagen to counteract its natural degradation that occurs with age. A dedicated skin care regimen based on the best collagen supplements like SkinQuencher can work wonders for restoring healthy skin.
Our SkinQuencher collagen supplement has been expertly formulated with highly concentrated vitamin C and marine-derived collagen proven to support skin health. The effects of collagen on our skin include better hydration, improved skin elasticity and texture, and put it simply, a firmer and healthier looking skin. Just one dose of supplement a day is all you need to begin revitalising your skin and restoring its youthful glow.
What should you expect to happen?
We conducted a consumer-based blind study over a three-month period and 56 out of 63 participants reported the following results after three months:
- 80% of participants agreed that the supplements help to maintain their skin's condition
- 78% of participants agreed that the skin felt plumper
- 78% of participants agreed that their skin looked more vibrant
- 76% of participants agreed that their skin felt more moisturised
Each of our award-winning collagen supplements contain ingredients that contribute to these overall results. However, in order to benefit from optimal results, it's important to follow a balanced lifestyle, and a nutrient-rich diet, alongside these supplements.
Why is marine collagen so good for your skin?
Marine collagen is well known for its ability to help lift and firm skin thanks to its high molecular weight, which allows it to concentrate in the layers of the skin that need it most. It also has a unique amino acid profile that makes it especially efficient at improving overall skin elasticity.
There are three main types of collagens that our body needs: type 1, type 2, and type 3. Type 1 collagen makes up parts of your skin, as well as eyes, tendons, and bones. Marine collagen has the greatest abundance of type 1 collagen that is not always easy to obtain from food, especially for those of us who are on a vegetarian or vegan diet, considering that the top sources of collagen include fish, chicken meat, and egg whites. While marine collagen is sourced from animal products, it comes from fish which may have been discarded as a by-product of the fishing industry, making it a more environmentally friendly source of collagen than others.
The skin quenching effects of marine collagen and vitamin C
The two active ingredients of SkinQuencher are hydrolysed marine collagen and Vitamin C. Marine collagen is easily absorbed by the body and is renowned for its ability to heal, regenerate and repair. Vitamin C goes hand in hand with collagen as it contributes to the collagen formation process, making it essential for the normal function of blood vessels, bones, cartilage, gums, skin and teeth.
There are so many factors in our daily lives that can affect the health of our skin, with stress, the sun, the environment and our diets to name but a few. These nutrients provide nourishment for skin cells all over the body, including the scalp. Skin cells thrive on vitamin C because it is vital in the production of collagen. Supplementing the diet with extra collagen counteracts the ageing skin process and keeps skin looking youthful.
The SkinQuencher is formulated with therapeutic levels of collagen and vitamin C, and contains 18 distinct amino acids that contribute to a glowing appearance and skin that’s healthy inside and out.
While taken in conjunction with a balanced diet, the SkinQuencher will work to:
- Promote healthy & fresh looking skin
- Improve sagging skin
- Promote and support natural collagen production in skin
- Protect against harmful UV rays
- Boost the immune system
- Prevent hair follicle damage
- Protect and strengthen your hair and scalp
