Collagen is an abundant protein in the human body. As we age past 25 years, the amount of collagen begins to be less and less. The importance of collagen is that it gives the skin strength and structure, It increases the skin's firmness, reduces wrinkle depth and restores hydration. Through my own personal experience I have seen great results with the Yana products. The products are sugar free, dairy free, soy free, gluten free and non-GMO. I take some collagen every morning and have proven the results with my own skin.
Vitamin C has long been known to be very supportive for skin and overall health. Here is a quote from Dr. Dennis Gross (full article https://www.wmagazine.com/story/skincare-trends-dermatologist-dr-dennis-gross )
"You're a huge fan of vitamin C. Why do you like it so much?
My motto is, ounce for ounce, it’s probably the most powerful antiaging ingredient there is because it is the one ingredient, that from an antiaging point of view, directly stimulates collagen. There’s a natural receptor for it, which is a unique receptor. Vitamin C is also an antioxidant, which protects the collagen we have from breaking down from free radicals and it directly blocks an enzyme that leads to melasma and hyperpigmentation. It really does make the skin look fantastic so you know there’s room for improvement and innovation, which is where I come in."
At Aesthetics by Clarice we use many products that feature Vitamin C and a more organic approach to the skin.
