How To Induce Collagen Stimulation In Your Skin If you are like me taking an interest in skin care, then most probably you have heard or read about “collagen stimulation”.
It is true that there is a lot of advertising hype about skin care based on collagen and how it can do wonders for your skin. Some of this hype is true, but also some of this is just plain false.
As you probably all know, collagen is a very important protein, produced by our own bodies. It is responsible for the underlying strength and resilience of our skin.
The problem starts when we get older, as our body gradually loses its ability of collagen production. The stock of the protein gets less and less and the unwanted signs of aging are becoming visible: Sagging, appearance of wrinkles and generally loss of our skin’s youthful firmness.
Now, when we talk about skin care based on collagen, we mean either of two things: Collagen stimulation by direct injections, or creams and lotions, which we buy and put on our skin.
In the case of direct injections administered by qualified dermatologists, then, it is true that they can have an immediate, noticeable effect. It can plump up areas of your skin and make it firmer.
However, bear in mind there are downsides to this method. First, it might be costly and painful and second the results will not be permanent. You will have to repeat the process after some months.
Things become a little bit trickier when you talk about creams. This is where the myth lies, generated by some of the skin care companies, not excluding some of the big names.
What happens is that there are a lot of creams, which list collagen to be one of their ingredients. The claim is that, when you rub it on your skin, then collagen will penetrate the outer layer and reach the dermis, the inner skin layer, where it will replete the stock of the protein that your own body produces.
There is nothing farther from the truth.
The reason why this claim is false is simple: Collagen molecules are bigger than the pores of your skin. Therefore, when you rub the cream it does nothing more than stay on the surface! What you lose is the money you spent, with nothing to gain.
But don’t despair, there is hope. Instead of actual collagen, there are other creams that contain ingredients whose function is to energize collagen stimulation. In other words, they help our body produce more of this much-needed substance.
An amazing ingredient which has been clinically shown to boost your own body’s collagen production is Cynergy TK.
You have probably not heard about it, because of two reasons: First it is brand new and second the company that put it in its line of products has decided to use only the internet for promotion and distribution.
In this way, it can keep the costs down thus giving the opportunity to much wider customer base to buy high quality, breakthrough products at an affordable price.
Apart from collagen stimulation, Cynergy TK also helps our skin produce another equally important protein, called elastin.
The secret behind the high potency of Cynergy TK comes by the name of Functional Keratin. This is a substance contained in Cynergy TK, based on the natural keratin sourced from the wool of sheep in New Zealand.
Keratin is another very strong protein which is an important component of our skin, hair, nails, teeth etc. It is also found in animals’ hooves, horn and wool.
On my website on skin care, I have a lot more interesting information about other breakthrough ingredients and products that aid collagen stimulation as well. I can say with certainty they work as I have been using them for some time now, with excellent results.
