1. Introduction: The Secret of Collagen and Its Importance for Radiant Skin
Collagen is an important component of our skin. The dermis, subcutaneous layer consists of collagen fibers. This layer forms the support structure for our skin. Furthermore, it is crucial for elasticity and resilience. A healthy level of collagen in the dermis results in elastic and firm skin.
There are various products such as capsules, powders, or cookies with essential ingredients like Vitamin C or collagen itself, which can support the regeneration of collagen in the body. Also, certain ingredients in skincare products play a significant role in boosting collagen levels in the skin. The Booster products from BEAUTÉ OMAR, the Seria Cutaneous, include the peptide complex, which has been proven to boost collagen synthesis! More on this exciting topic of peptides and collagen synthesis will follow in this article.
Once you’ve unraveled the secret of collagen and know how to stimulate its production, radiant skin is within reach.
2. What is Collagen and Why is it Important for Skin Health?
Collagen is an important component of our skin, responsible for its firmness and elasticity. It is a structural protein, twisted as helices and interconnected through hydrogen bonding. There are many different types of collagen found throughout the body, such as in bones, tendons, ligaments, joints, internal organs, and of course, the skin, especially the dermis. Collagen constitutes about 30% of our total body mass.
The amount of collagen in our tissues is genetically determined. A healthy, protein-rich diet increases the collagen content, while malnutrition decreases it. A low-protein diet is therefore not conducive to firm skin but rather accelerates aging.
3. Which Cells Produce the Body’s Own Collagen?
Fibroblasts in the subcutaneous layer, osteoblasts in bones, chondroblasts in cartilage, etc., produce collagen. The origin of high collagen synthesis is the high activity of these cells.
For example, fibroblasts are very active in a moist skin environment. Therefore, taking measures against dry skin, such as using hyaluronic acid-containing products like creams or serums, is important.
The most important collagen types and their occurrence:
Most common collagen type, found in skin, tendons, fasciae, bones, vessels, internal organs, and dentin (tooth).
Collagen of cartilage; 50% of all proteins in cartilage consist of Collagen Type II; Component of the vitreous body in the eye.
4. The Natural Aging Process of the Skin and Its Effects on Collagen Production
Collagen synthesis is also hormonally controlled, such as by estrogen and testosterone. When hormone levels decrease over the course of life, this is reflected in the formation of wrinkles or rather gray, dull skin. In advanced stages, it leads to osteoporosis and increased susceptibility to injuries such as tendon strains or even fractures. Vessel walls also consist of collagen. Healthy blood circulation of the skin requires an intact vascular structure, for example, for the BEAUTÉ Glow.
How Your Diet Can Positively Affect Your Own Collagen Production
Therefore, it is important to stimulate collagen production to maintain one’s health and improve skin health. There are various ways to do this: through diet, external treatments, or special products such as powders, capsules with collagen-promoting ingredients and
Vitamin C. A balanced diet can also contribute to collagen formation by providing the body with sufficient proteins. Because only in this way can adequate amino acids be formed – these are essential for the production of collagens in our body. Collagens supplied through capsules or powders are not vegan. These are animal products, for example, from sustainably raised grass-fed cattle. Make sure that these products contain the active ingredients in high concentration. The high-quality products may be slightly more expensive but contain fewer fillers such as sugar.
5. How Can Active Ingredient Cosmetics Increase Skin Collagen Production?
The active ingredient cosmetics of the new generation from BEAUTÉ OMAR Dr. Mariam Omar Aesthetics specializes in stimulating the neosynthesis of skin collagen production. The Bio-Placenta, a peptide complex consisting of five different growth factors, is in the
- Surgi Boost Face Cream
- Surgi Boost Advanced Body Cream and
- Hyaluron-4-iconic Booster Serum
Growth factors are proteins that, in turn, stimulate fibroblasts to increase their cell activity in the form of collagen synthesis. This works best in combination with hyaluronic acid. Therefore, the creams contain as active ingredients two different pharmaceutical-grade hyaluronic acids, and the serum even contains four different hyaluronic acids with a content of over 2.5%.
- EGF: epidermal growth factor with signal induction for cell synthesis
- IGF-1: Insulin-like growth factors, controls collagen synthesis and cell maturation
- Acidic FGF: Member of the fibroblast growth factor group, positively influences cell maturation
- Basic FGF: Signal peptide, activates fibroblast cell proliferation
- VEGF: Signal protein for fibroblast activity
Collagen Therapy in Scar Care
The scar healing begins after the completion of wound healing. It is basically the restructuring and regeneration of collagen fibers of the skin as well as the reorganization of cells such as pigment cells. This works best when the young scar is kept moist. Therefore, there are a variety of silicone-based scar creams. Silicone has the property of sealing the scar, keeping it moist.
However, modern scar care has a much higher demand.
Dr. Mariam Omar, the founder of BEAUTÉ OMAR, is a specialist in plastic surgery. Scar care is as important to Dr. Omar as the surgical procedure itself. Wound and scar healing are very familiar to her. Therefore, she has developed a scar cream based on collagen. The Scar Rescue Cream is unparalleled in scar therapy.
The collagen used is one of the purest collagens and can be integrated into the body’s scar healing. Other important active ingredients valuable for beautiful scars are Vitamin E and Dexpanthenol. Both are contained alongside Shea Butter and soothing hemp seed oil. A scar also depends on good blood circulation, supported by ginger oil. The natural ingredients intensely care for the scar and reduce redness, tightness, and itching. The scar care routine with the Scar Rescue Cream is often applied to the cesarean section scar or after burns or any skin injuries. Scar care is a marathon, so it’s never too late to start!
6. Factors That Can Influence Collagen Regeneration
Collagen regeneration is an important factor for radiant and healthy skin. However, there are various factors that can affect this formation. These include intrinsic and extrinsic factors.
Extrinsic factors are external influences that affect collagen production or destroy existing collagen.
- UV radiation, excessive sunbathing
- Smoking and alcohol
- High environmental pollution
- Intrinsic malnutrition
- Such as constant diets, low-protein diets
- Hormonal deficiency, low estrogen levels
- Severe illnesses
can negatively affect collagen formation.
Counteracting positively can be done by applying sunscreen and avoiding certain noxes. In diet, Vitamin C-rich foods or fatty fish can support the process. Regular intake of Vitamin D, especially in the cold season, is also essential for a healthy support structure for skin and bones and general well-being. Overall, it is important to note that each type and each skin reacts differently to certain factors, thus requiring individual measures to stimulate collagen formation. However, a targeted approach can help prevent wrinkles and ensure radiant and healthy skin.
7. Nutrition Tips to Support Collagen Production
To promote collagen production in the skin, nutrition plays a crucial role. There are specific foods that can stimulate collagen formation. These include collagen-rich foods such as beef broth or gelatin, as well as protein-rich foods like eggs and fish. Vitamin C is also a key component for collagen production and can be obtained by consuming fruits and vegetables. Therefore, a balanced diet with an appropriate amount of protein and vitamins, along with regular exercise, are the best measures to promote natural collagen production in the body.
8. Key Ingredients in Skincare Products That Can Promote Collagen Production
A healthy collagen production is vital for radiant and healthy skin. Apart from peptides, there are other factors that can influence the formation of new collagen, including specific ingredients in skincare products. Here are important ingredients that can help promote collagen production:
Vitamin C is an important antioxidant and essential for collagen production in the body.
Hyaluronic Acid can increase skin moisture levels, boost fibroblast activity, and thereby reduce wrinkles.
Retinol (Vitamin A) supports the skin’s natural renewal process and contributes to the formation of new collagen.
Amino Acids such as Lysine and Proline are essential components of collagen itself and can therefore contribute to supporting its formation.
Green Tea Extract is a potent antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties and can also help promote elasticity.
Coenzyme Q10 can act as an antioxidant and has positive effects on cell metabolism and regeneration.
It’s worthwhile to pay attention to the ingredients present in your skincare products, as they can have a significant impact on collagen production and, consequently, on the health and appearance of your skin.
9. Conclusion: Radiant Skin Through Targeted Promotion of Collagen Regeneration
In summary, promoting collagen regeneration plays a crucial role in sustaining healthy, radiant skin. There are various ways to stimulate the body’s own production of collagen and thus prevent wrinkles. In addition to the right diet with sufficient Vitamin C and E, specific products like capsules or powders can be taken for support. External treatments such as massages or certain skincare products can also contribute to increasing collagen levels in the skin. However, it’s always important to prioritize the quality and effectiveness of the products to achieve the best possible results. Collagen production takes some time, sometimes up to six weeks, so a degree of patience is required for sustainable results.
