We all know that the sun and wind can seriously deplete your collagen reserves – leading to visible skin damage. So certain preventative measures should be taken. Here are four ways to keep your skin looking and feeling fabulous all season long:
1. Limit your time in sun.
This may seem obvious, but the best skin-saving strategy is to limit your time in direct sunlight. Stick to either early morning or late afternoon – but if you can’t do this, be sure to cover up with some light clothing and a hat.
2. Stay hydrated.
It is well known that water helps preserve elasticity of the skin and prevents wrinkles from forming prematurely. During the heat of the summer, you need to be even more aware of your water intake – as it helps keep your skin soft and plump.
3. Amp up your Vitamin C.
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps protect the skin from the inside out and it plays an important role in collagen production. It also has the amazing ability to undo photo-aging – meaning skin damage resulting from years of sun exposure. Naturel Collagen has an outstanding vitamin C supplement, called Vitamin C-olway that offers multiple health benefits – learn more about it here.
4. Apply collagen twice daily.
As we get older our collagen reserves plummet – and of course wrinkles form as a result. It is extremely important to treat the skin during the summer months with products containing collagen peptides – such as our Atelocollagen serum. When applied twice daily to moist skin, this soothing gel will boost hydration, and improve the texture of the skin significantly. With regular use, it will diminish fine lines as well!
