But do you know exactly what it is and what it does? To find out everything about him, read the following article without further delay!

What is collagen?

Collagen is a protein naturally present in the body. And it's not just any protein since it's the most abundant protein in the human body !

For the record, its name comes from the Greek "Kölla" which means "glue", which already gives you a good clue about its function... Indeed, collagen ensures the cohesion of tissues and organs, but also their elasticity and their regeneration. It is found, among other things , in tendons, ligaments, cartilage, bones, blood vessels, muscles ... as well as in organs such as the eyes and skin. The latter is mainly composed of type l collagen, knowing that there are no less than 28 kinds of collagen with specific properties. Produced by fibroblasts in the dermis, collagen provides tone and bounce to the skin.

Why does collagen production decrease with age?

From the age of 25, the body loses on average 1% of collagen per year. Its quantity but also its quality diminishes over time, with an acceleration of the phenomenon at menopause. At age 60, the skin is considered to have 60% less collagen. No one escapes this decline: it is the very natural reality of skin aging. But it's not just that.

Under the effect of UV rays, pollution, stress, cigarette breaks, too many evenings or even too short nights, the collagen fibers start to panic. They crack and disorganize sooner than expected, with consequences that inevitably end up being visible on their faces. It loses firmness, wrinkles deepen, features sag and the oval becomes blurred. In short, it's not really the best...

Of course, if we tell you all this, it is not for the pleasure of weighing down your morale, no, no, no!
At Lashilé Beauty, we like to have a smile and we like to give it to you even more. So rest assured, there are several solutions to combine to naturally boost collagen production and maintain beautiful, firm skin.

The benefits of collagen

Boosting your collagen production, ok, but very concretely what will this bring you? Mainly plumpy skin, with fewer fine lines and wrinkles because collagen is a protein absolutely essential to the skin's firmness, elasticity and strength. In fact, it acts as a kind of cement that holds cells together. By strengthening the structure of the skin , collagen also helps to increase its natural defense capacity against external aggressions and thus to delay skin aging as much as possible.

Our advice for boosting collagen production

Now that you know why it is important to stimulate your collagen production, let’s get to the “how to”:

1. Adopt a healthy and balanced diet

A triangle sandwich at lunch break, cookies at snack time, a cocktail loaded with fruit juice at aperitif... This is typically the kind of menu that harms collagen.
For what ? Because that represents a huge amount of sugars. Indeed, excessive consumption of sugar promotes the glycation process, that is to say the stiffening of collagen fibers. As a result, collagen not only becomes weaker but also less elastic, leading straight to premature skin aging and the development of wrinkles. On a daily basis, “bad sugars” should therefore be consumed in small doses. To avoid falling into the trap of added sugars, the ideal is to get behind the stove and cook with raw products. By favoring skin-friendly foods that promote collagen synthesis such as red fruits, leafy vegetables, eggs, salmon, shellfish, oilseeds, legumes and even dairy products.

2. Focus on suitable food supplements

This is the best way to optimize your intake of targeted nutrients! Made in France according to strict ethical standards, our new Good Beauty gummies stimulate collagen production thanks to a unique formula and optimal bioavailability .

Inside these little gummies with a delicious cherry flavor? Several hand-picked ingredients such as selenium, a trace element which is also a powerful antioxidant. Its protective action helps the skin maintain all its firmness and elasticity. We have also included vitamin C, essential for stimulating the production of collagen and thus preventing premature skin aging. Just like rose petals rich in antioxidants and vitamins, and lactic ferments (or probiotics) which strengthen the balance of the skin flora and stimulate the production of collagen.

How to use them? Take 2 gummies a day at any time of the day. For prolonged effectiveness and lasting benefits, we recommend taking it for a minimum of 3 months.

3.Protect your skin from external aggressions

Skin ages naturally, and there's not much you can do about it. On the other hand, we can ensure that collagen does not deteriorate too early or too quickly by acting on anything that accelerates skin aging. On a daily basis, the skin faces many external attacks, such as UV rays, pollution, temperature changes, blue light from screens , etc. which can end up altering the skin barrier and weakening collagen production. . To protect yourself, it is essential to have a well-established beauty routine .
This involves the use of sun protection as soon as the first rays begin to heat up , as well as systematic cleansing of the skin before going to bed to eliminate impurities and pollution particles which become magnetized on the skin. the face during the day.

Hydration is also essential: apply a cream rich in antioxidants every morning to neutralize free radicals generated by external aggressions and thus protect the skin.

In the evening, a more nourishing treatment will allow you to repair your skin and look radiant when you wake up !

4.Massage your face to stimulate collagen production

When applying your treatments, don't forget to massage your face well. It is very effective in boosting collagen production , and enjoying a pleasant moment of relaxation in the process.

The right gestures? Upward movements from the chin towards the forehead to combat the effects of gravity, exerting firm pressure (but not too abrupt) to stimulate without attacking. You can also use a jade roller or gua sha to increase the effectiveness of your massage.
