There’s many collagen booster moisturisers out there, but how can you make an informed decision on what works best for you? The best collagen moisturiser must have a deep hydration action that lasts, with a powerful combination of ingredients to nourish and plump the skin.

What is Collagen?

Collagen is the structure that keeps the skin elastic and toned. The word collagen derives from Greek and means “to generate glue”. Collagen is a component part of connective tissue, which acts like a net enveloping our muscles and organs, keeping them in place. Collagen is present in bones, tendons, cartilage and skin.
Young skin has more collagen than mature skin. Mature skin may show signs of ageing like fine lines, sagging and loss of volume. You can compare young skin, which is full of collagen, to a balloon that has been filled up with air. As we get older, the balloon loses some air and becomes saggy. As long as we keep topping up the air inside the balloon, we can slow down the process of becoming saggy.
When skin ages, production of collagen slows down, so to counteract that process you need something that signals to the skin to produce new collagen. These signals can come from peptides and aminoacids. Peptides and aminoacids (chains of aminoacids make peptides) are the building blocks of collagen, which is a protein. They are small is size and help collagen production in the skin. Collagen boosting ingredients in moisturising creams acts as a signal to the skin that it needs to replace collagen.

How Can You Slow Down the Signs of Ageing?

Some habits may be hard to break, but simple rules can bring great results. For example, wearing a sunscreen (even when it’s cloudy) and cleansing the skin every day work wonders to achieve supple, youthful skin.
Applying a moisturiser every day can make a difference when combating wrinkles and signs of ageing. A moisturiser will plump up the skin by delivering hydration and reducing the appearance of wrinkles as the skin acquires more volume.
