I’ve been having quite a love affair with Kat Burki lately. My recent endeavor into her line is the Lift & Fill Form Control Marine Collagen Gel. I’m usually weary of products with the name collagen in the title. Collagen molecules are too big to penetrate the dermis layer of the skin. So putting them on your skin, especially when they cannot be absorbed, seems silly as it won’t bring your collagen back. Collagen is what makes our skin all plump and hydrated like babies, then we loose it over time. Our bodies stop producing it as rapidly.
As with all anti-aging skincare it’s an effort to still try and look like we’re in our 20s. I have noticed this loss of plumpness and change in my skin as I’m almost 39. While putting topical collagen on your skin will temporarily fill lines and wrinkles as well as hydrate and plump the skin, the key word is temporary. What you really need to so is use products that stimulate your own collagen production. That’s the key for collagen products.
Marine Collagen Gel does both of the above, provide some topical collagen for a temporary effect as well as provide ingredients that stimulate collagen production. Details per Kat Burki:
