Since a potion to prevent aging has not yet been found you can turn towards the next best thing available: collagen treatments. Collagen, which is naturally produced by the skin in the dermis, is a protein responsible for the skin's youthful appearance and tightness. Until the age of 25, the skin is made out of 80% collagen, but past this age it starts to reduce with a rate of about 1% a year. Decreased collagen production leads to wrinkles and sagging skin, and this is exactly what women want to prevent.
Anti-aging treatments nowadays have been focusing more on working from the inside out than the other way around according to Laura Casewell, editor of The Cosmetic Surgery Guide, who told DailyMail that:
“There's a definite move towards improving the skin from the "inside out" rather than the "outside in" and stimulating our bodies to replace what has been lost.”
Now, to test if collagen treatments work or not, Tanith Carey, DailyMail's editor, turned towards various collagen treatments that included diet restrictions, injections, collagen boosting creams and supplements. Prior to these collagen boosting treatments, she made an appointment to test exactly how much collagen she had in her skin. Her result: 61 out of 100, just over the average for women of her age.
