Using your facial muscles — smiling, frowning, or squinting — is part of expressing yourself. That’s normal, but it does stress the collagen in your skin. Over time, that stress adds up and contributes to facial lines and wrinkles. We are already aware of the importance of collagen and the vital part it plays in slowing down the skin’s ageing process. AB Cosmetic has been concentrating its research on this promising star ingredient for many years. AB Cosmetic found the richest collagen – a marine collagen with nourishing benefits on the shores of Brittany in France.
Collagen is a protein central to the elasticity and regeneration of our skin. It’s responsible for keeping skin firm and young-looking. After the age of 20 it starts to decrease. That’s why we typically begin to notice the earliest signs of aging in our skin—a few fine lines here and there—as we approach our mid 30s. By the time we reach 40 our skin is no longer producing collagen and begins to lose elasticity. At 50 we begin to see the more profound effects of aging, like deeper wrinkles, sagging and skin that is much thinner thus prone to damage.
