General information on collagen collagen fomation in skin

Collagen is a protein and is found in all body parts, including the largest organ of the body - the skin – and is made up of three strands of repeating amino acids coils coiling into the unique collagen triple helix.

Various types of collagen are found in the body and are required to build new cellular structures – like skin – and to repair any damage caused.

Types I, III and V are specific collagen types involved in the health of your skin.

What does collagen do? collagen fomation in skin

Together with soft keratin, the collagen and elastin fibers are responsible for the strength and elasticity of the skin – and degradation of the collagen leads to aging and accompanying wrinkles.

What damages and destroys collagen? collagen fomation in skin

With the onslaught of normal aging, the collagen in our skin is under attack and various factors hasten the degradation of collagen.

Sun tanning and sun exposure is one of the main culprits of collagen deterioration in our skin and inflammation also destroys collagen.

Large amounts of free radicals – which are formed during normal body functions (oxidation), can also destroy collagen – and here a person can specifically look at pollution and toxins in your environment, fat filled diet as well as cigarette smoking and consuming alcohol.

Although a Finnish study could not detect morphological changes in the skin of smokers, they did find that type I and III collagen synthesis is decreased and the regulation of ECM turnover is altered in smokers, which may lead to deterioration of the tensile strength and resiliency of skin in the long term.
