Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies, accounting for around 30% of its total protein. It is a major building block for our bones, skin, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. “It’s like the glue holding everything together,” says Aesthetic nurse and skin expert Lizette Ludwig. As we age, our bodies produce less and less collagen – which is unfortunate, as it’s responsible for giving our skin that youthful look.
Today, we’re bringing you a video with Lizette Ludwig, where she talks about the causes of collagen loss, gives advice on how to influence collagen production with healthy lifestyle choices, and explains how FOREOs hydration device UFO™ and microcurrent device BEAR™ promote collagen production. Within only 6 minutes, you can have a full facial routine at home.
After the age of 30, collagen and elastin, responsible for the firm, plump, youthful appearance of our skin, dramatically drop. There are various ways to boost collagen in our bodies: through food rich in collagen, such as chicken or fish skin; collagen supplements in the form of powder, capsules, or liquids; topical collagen products like face creams and serums; and devices designed to boost collagen production in our bodies.
New technologies such as microcurrent work to increase the concentration of Adenosine Triphosphate molecule that acts as our body’s cellular energy and plays a crucial role in various cellular processes – encouraging the production of essential structural proteins like collagen and elastin to firm skin and combat signs of aging such as wrinkles and sagging.
Microcurrent devices such as FOREO’s BEAR™ transfer their energy into your cell membranes, increasing circulation and improving your body’s potential to make more collagen. When we improve collagen, our skin feels smoother, tighter, and firm – a facelift that you can do from the comfort of your home without the need for Botox, surgery, and recovery time.
