What is collagen?

Collagen is a form of protein present in the skin that helps to keep your skin wrinkle free. Collagen is the basic support structure of your skin.

When collagen breaks down or is not produced in the required amount, wrinkles start appearing.
Collagen is affected by the following -
  • aging reduces collagen production 
  • UV rays of the sun can damage collagen 
  • smoking and alcohol destroys collagen 
Collagen keeps your skin young and wrinkle free. Take care of your skin to protect collagen and make it last longer.

Follow a healthy life-style, drink water and keep yourself hydrated. Apply sunscreen lotion before going out in the sun. Avoid smoking and alcohol. Exercise.

Follow a healthy diet. 

Vitamin C and Vitamin A helps to increase collagen production. Zinc helps to repair damaged tissues. Make sure you get your daily dose of Vitamin C, Vitamin A and Zinc.
