Aging does not start when a crow’s feet wrinkles suddenly appear at the corners of your eyes; nor does it begin when you suddenly find that your face is loose and your skin is no longer shiny. Aging is the overall aging of the deep tissues of the body. Just like repairing a house, when you find a crack on the wall, the damage has spread “from the inside out.” Therefore, the correct “anti-aging” is not just ironing the skin but repairing it from the inside out. It is not enough to do superficial work to resist aging. It is necessary to understand the mechanism of aging to prescribe the right medicine. This article will reveal the secret of aging for everyone.
We all know that the skin is the largest organ of the body. The skin area of an adult’s body is about 1.5 to 2.0 square meters, and its mass accounts for about 16% of body weight.
Skin aging is also the most noticeable, so we perceive that we are getting old, often starting from the skin: the skin is getting worse, dull, gray, and yellow, with stains and wrinkles and sagging. , Lose flexibility.
First of all, collagen helps our skin to lock in moisture. It plays an essential role as a “deep reservoir” and provides sufficient moisture to the epidermis. Collagen is rich in hydrophilic natural moisturizing masses, combined with the protein on the skin surface to replenish lost collagen. At the same time, it can also conserve skin moisture and keep the skin hydrophilic. At the same time, collagen helps increase skin density, generate tension, and increase skin elasticity.
Our skin is shiny and elastic because collagen fibers cooperate with elastic yarns to make the skin moist, smooth, and flexible.
Collagen peptide is such an almighty rescue champion. However, few people understand his heroic deeds in this all-around champion. First of all, I want to talk to you about the protein synthesis mechanism. Otherwise, it will be difficult for you to understand—the real power of collagen peptides. When we need to synthesize protein, DNA cannot help us directly synthesize protein. To synthesize protein, we need to turn DNA into [mRNA]. The Chinese name messenger ribonucleic acid then uses this [mRNA] to synthesize protein. If our genes are damaged, then [mRNA] expression will be reduced accordingly.
Collagen peptides can help [mRNA] expression. [MRNA] is equivalent to a factory for collagen production, and collagen peptides can help this factory become more. In other words, collagen peptides can restore our [collagen] production rate.
The second killer of collagen peptides is: scavenging free radicals! When collagen peptides and vitamin C are combined, they can effectively scavenge free radicals and slow down the loss of collagen.
Collagen peptides can accelerate collagen production and provide raw materials for collagen production, prevent the loss of collagen, and strengthen the collagen structure. It is no exaggeration to say that collagen peptide itself is a super powerful team in terms of anti-aging!
