If you were to stumble upon the fountain of youth, it’d probably be overflowing with collagen. This protein is an essential ingredient for healthy muscles, bones, tendons, and (as we’ll talk about here) our skin. It is also one of the most abundant proteins found in the human body. However, our body naturally loses collagen reserves over time.
Because collagen is the main component when it comes to our skin’s overall structure and its ability to bounce back, losing this protein can cause our skin to lose its elasticity, sag, and develop wrinkles. Age isn’t the only factor in collagen loss. Damage may come in the form of too much sun exposure, smoking, environmental pollutants and certain lifestyle habits that all play a part in slowing down our body’s production of this essential protein. Thankfully, there are ways you can fight back against aging and replenish the collagen levels in your skin, helping you obtain healthier, more vibrant and younger-looking skin.
One of those ways is by applying a collagen mask. As an alternative to injections and topical treatments that don’t always work, collagen masks allow this skin-boosting protein to penetrate deep into the pores of your skin, providing an almost instantaneous change to the look of your skin. For best results, you’ll want to take the time properly prep your skin, and make sure you are applying the mask correctly.
How to use a collagen face mask
First, wash your face and remove any makeup or residue from the day. For added benefit, use a warm washcloth to open the pores and make it easier for the collagen-enriched serum to seep into the deepest layers of your skin. After you apply the face mask, another effective trick to encourage absorption is to massage your face over the mask with a gemstone roller. Sit with your mask for 20-40 minutes. Practice deep breathing, meditation, and bring your focus inward. After you remove the mask, massage the leftover serum either into the treatment area or on parts of the skin that need a little collagen lift.
