What you need to know about wrinkles

by Natasha Whiting |

There is no denying that everyone’s skin ages as we get older. Your lifestyle can actually have a major impact on the number and appearance of wrinkles. Whether you spend your days out in the sun soaking up Vitamin D, or inside an office, as you get older, you’ll be able to see the effects on your skin.


Why do wrinkles appear?

Wrinkles form due to the slowing down of the body’s collagen production. Collagen plays a significant role in the elasticity and firmness of your skin, and as this depletes, you’ll notice your skin changes becoming dryer and more prone to wrinkles. However, there are a few changes you can make to your daily habits that can make a huge impact on your skin.

Wear sun cream

Sun cream provides a crucial layer of protection from the sun’s UV rays that can damage your skin, leading to premature ageing and wrinkles. Wearing an SPF of at least 30 to 50 every day, even if the weather is overcast can be a game changer in maintaining stronger skin.

Stay hydrated

Up to 64% of the average person’s skin is water, and being dehydrated can have a seriously negative impact on the condition of your skin. Your body needs water to flush out toxins and regulate body temperature amongst many other things, and dry skin is just one of the negative effects dehydration can have.

Avoid smoking

Tobacco damages collagen and elastin, both chemicals responsible for keeping your skin strong and soft. Additionally, the nicotine in cigarettes constricts your blood vessels, meaning there is a shorter supply of oxygen going to the skin through the blood as well as the nutrients in the blood along with it.

Collagen supplements


It goes without saying that if wrinkles appear as an effect of depleted collagen levels, taking daily collagen supplements can seriously slow the process down. Kollo's premium marine collagen daily sachets contain 10g of collagen, the largest amount of collagen per daily supplement out on the market, making it ideal for convenient consumption.
