What is Collagen?
Collagen is one of the main structural protein of the human body. It makes up most of our skin, hair, and nails. The protein in our skin is actually 70% Collagen!
The firmness of our skin depends on Collagen. It is in charge of giving our skin elasticity, as well as strengthening our hair. Collagen basically has the ability to hold everything in place, which makes our skin look more youthful and radiant.
Why should we use Collagen face masks?
Both men and women lose Collagen gradually as they reach their late 20s to early 30s. This increases the appearance of wrinkles and signs of aging as our skin becomes less firm. Collagen face masks helps lessen the signs of aging. It rejuvenates and tightens the skin. Collagen face masks are also great for dry skin as it is hydrating. Most importantly, Collagen face masks are safe to use. As our body initially produces Collagen, it is not considered as a foreign substance.
