Regenerate Skin: Stimulating Collagen and Elastin

The holy grail of skin care is knowing how to stimulate collagen and elastin production in the body. Skin care companies are making a fortune out of people like you and me by using advertising to perpetuate a myth!

The simple truth is this: no matter how much you spend on the latest and great elastin or collagen skin care product, you cannot apply these ingredients topically to your skin surface in a collagen moisturizer and expect them to stimulate new collagen growth to reverse the effects of aging on your skin.

Collagen molecules that are added to a skin care product are just too large to be absorbed into the skin. For younger skin you have to stimulate the body to renew skin cells and produce these two important proteins on their own.

Next time you see some ad with a gorgeous model showing off her perfect skin while promoting the ingredient “collagen”, you can smile to yourself knowing that you won’t be one of the millions of people falling for this myth. Collagen in a moisturizer might provide some moisturizing benefits, but it absolutely will not stimulate natural growth of collagen.

To have truly younger looking, radiant skin, then elastin and collagen actually are quite important. The two natural proteins are directly responsible for the strength and elasticity of your skin. Put simply, they work to prevent your skin from wrinkles and sagging. The older you get, the less collagen and elastic your skin produces. As your collagen begins to break down your skin will lose its youthful and supple texture and wrinkles will begin to appear.

Collagen injections are given sometimes as a filler material to plump your skin back out, but you would be far better off by promoting your body to generate new natural collagen and elastin than to just add it to the surface of your skin.

A few of the top quality skin lines have adapted their products now and removed collagen from the ingredient list, since it is very clear that it won’t do any good when trying to stimulate new collagen growth. However, from the results of modern scientific research, several new and natural ingredients have been identified that are actually proven to regenerate collagen and elastin in your skin.

So, if you are shopping for a skin care product that will boost real collagen and elastic growth, then keep your eye out for the following ingredients on the product labels: Phytessence Wakame, Xtend TK, as well as supporting ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, CoenzymeQ10 (an antioxidant) and alpha hydroxy acids. These ingredients work well together to stimulate cellular turnover and create healthier, glowing skin.

Phytessence Wakame (from Japanese sea kelp) is an excellent natural antioxidant that also helps prevent cellular breakdown that contributes to aging, and Xtend TK has been proven in scientific studies to rejuvenate skin and trigger new collagen and elastin formation.

Okay, so next time you’re shopping for a skin care line, you can now look at the ingredients list and look for products that actually will stimulate collagen and elastic production in your body, and not just offer empty promises like most overly marketed hype products. If you are going to spend your hard earned money on skin care products and apply it to your skin, you should make sure that it will actually give you visible results.

Personally, I have been using the excellent skin care range by Xtend Life which I highly recommend. They use more natural active ingredients with proven clinical results than other skin care product, and they guarantee your satisfaction with a 365-day money back guarantee.
