When do your skin and body start to age?

The skin starts to age naturally in one’s mid-20s. Its ability to repair and renew itself declines gradually. Collagen production slows, skin elasticity declines and fine lines and wrinkles appear. Skin also becomes drier and less firm, and age spots start to surface.

Skin condition is closely linked to the health of internal organs and how well they function.


Body functions peak in the early 20s and decline with age. One can see how internal organs are ageing from the condition of the skin.

Why your skin and body need collagen to stay young?

Collagen is an important protein in the body and the key to youthful skin. The human body produces collagen which makes up 75% of the skin. Collagen forms an elaborate matrix that supports the skin and locks in moisture, allowing the skin to stay soft, smooth and elastic. However, collagen with break down as a person grows older, and damaged collagen structures result in signs of ageing, such as fine lines and wrinkles.

Other than skin, collagen also contributing to bones, teeth, hair, nails, eyes, muscle, blood vessels and immune system.

What is the best way you can get collagen?


By applying skincare products containing collagen

  • The size of collagen molecules is too big to penetrate into the dermis and it can only provide some hydration effect by increasing the skin moisture temporarily.


By consuming supplement products containing collagen

  • Once ingested, collagen will be broken into amino acids in the digestive system thus losing its original collagen structure.


By consuming animal-derived collagen

  • Collagen structures from animals (e.g. pig, cows) are different from human collagen can cause allergic or inflammatory reactions. It also contains calories, fat, cholesterol and hormones that harmful for your body.


By consuming plant-based food that rich in antioxidants

  • Stimulate the body to produce sufficient amounts of collagen and strengthen existing collagen structure.

How do antioxidants help with health and beauty?

Antioxidants acquired from plants have been shown to: -

  1. destroy free radicals and helping to protect against oxidative damage.

  2. stimulate the body to produce sufficient amounts of collagen

  3. delay ageing of the skin and internal organs.

  4. boost the normal functioning of the immune system.

  5. enhance immunity to prevent the incidence of disease.

Free radicals, which are the by-products of metabolic activities in the body, are the main cause of a sign of ageing in the skin and body.

  • They cause skin damage and accelerate the ageing process.

  • They are highly unstable and contribute to mutations of membranes, proteins, and DNA, causing cancer and other chronic diseases.

The free radicals caused by ultraviolet (UV) radiation, smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, air pollution, stress, and poor eating habits can also cause premature ageing.

Why is detoxing important for your skin health?

The liver is closely linked to skin health because it performs essential functions related to detoxification and metabolism in the body. If the liver fails to function properly or it is overburdened, it can no longer provide cleansed blood flow to the skin. This will cause pimples and wrinkles to surface and the skin to become dull and less firm.
