It seems like every time your turn your head, you see another online ad about how you can stop all your skin problems by rubbing in somebody’s new collagen elastin skin remedy.
It sounds good, doesn’t it?
If you’re anything like me, you probably would love to do that — rub in some cream, fill your skin full of collagen and elastin and plump up those sagging spots, even the skin tone, get rid of the circles starting around the eyes and erase any sign of skin wrinkles.
I know I would. It definitely sounds like a simple cure for all our skin care problems.
But I’ve done the due diligence, checked it out, and found out it’s not true. It’s really an ugly lie about a collagen elastin skin remedy. And it’s all over the internet.
No amount of collagen and elastin applied topically — no cream, no gel, nothing we can rub onto our skin — can replace our natural collagen and elastin supplies.
It’s too bad, because it’s true that we all tend to lose both collagen and elastin as we get older, and collagen and elastin are probably the most important parts of a strong, flexible, vibrant complexion, glowing with youthfulness and health.
The truth is this: Neither collagen nor elastin can be absorbed into the skin. Their molecules are just too big. Rub any skin care cream or gel onto our skin, and something will likely be absorbed (we can only hope it’s good, healthful ingredients that are penetrating the skin), but the collagen and elastin will remain on our skin till we rub them off or wash them off.
So why put them in there? Like I said, it’s an ugly lie. Most of us are learning that collagen and elastin are so important to healthy skin, and lots of manufacturers are glad to promise their products contain all the collagen and elastin we need.
Personally, after being led to believe that lie, I don’t trust anything else they say about their products. (You can definitely check for yourself. You’ll see this is not just my opinion, it’s fact.)
There IS some good news in this mess of lies, however. It IS possible to rebuild the collagen and elastin our skin has lost, and to do it naturally and with great results.
The answer is to give our skin the cutting-edge ingredients that stimulate our skin to naturally produce more collagen and elastin, and to stop the damage that degrades our skin’s structure.
The best products I’ve found to do that are not the biggest brand names at all. I’ve come to believe the true leaders in natural skin care are smaller companies that don’t have the deep pockets to pay millions and millions for testimonials from famous stars — but they have the integrity to research what really builds collagen and elastin.
