3 Collagen Boosting Skincare Ingredients You MUST Have In Your Anti-Aging Skincare Routine


By: Amir Karam MD

What happens to skin as it ages? One of the core reasons you begin to see lines, wrinkles, laxity and dull skin is that the production of collagen decreases over time. Collagen production slows down because of a number of factors, such as smoking, lifestyle, stress, and others.

If we don’t stimulate collagen production as we get older, our skin starts to look older, duller, and lined–the skin is on a downward slope. How does skin care fit into all of this?

Where does skincare fit in when it comes to stimulating collagen production?

Skincare products come in many different forms, many of which say, “rejuvenating,” “moisturizing,” or something similar. And many products are quite expensive. But no matter what the price tag, if you’re not using a product that gets down to the cellular level and triggering the cells that boost collagen production, you are wasting your time and money.

Skincare products can absolutely turn on the collagen “engine” and rebuild collagen growth over time. The entire reason for putting skincare products on your face is to get your cells to produce collagen again. When I formulated the TRIFECTA, I wanted to develop a product that stimulated collagen for the long run, a product that was easy enough to use every day to reverse collagen loss over time.

What is the TRIFECTA?

 

I created the TRIFECTA, a simple, easy-to-follow skincare routine, to help people reverse the signs of age and achieve luminous, supple skin. These products were built around the core concept of getting the body to produce collagen again at a whole new level. The TRIFECTA daily skincare routine is three easy steps:

RINSE

A gentle cleanser that softens and hydrates the skin to boost cell regeneration and collagen production, prevent UV damage, and prepare the skin to absorb active skincare ingredients.

QUENCH

An anti-inflammatory, brightening vitamin C serum that minimizes fine lines and prevents the breakdown of collagen in the skin.

ILLUMINATE

The all-in-one anti-aging cream that boosts cell turnover and collagen production, improving skin elasticity, reducing signs of age, deeply hydrating, and firming the skin for a supple, youthful glow.

What ingredients in skincare products boost collagen production?

The three basic components that effectively stimulate collagen production at the cellular level include the following:

1. Retinoids: Retin-A or Retinol

These vitamin A derivatives do wonderful things for the skin. One of the most important things they do for the skin is stimulate an increase in collagen production.

2. Vitamin C

In addition to the antioxidant qualities that vitamin C has, it also stimulates collagen production. Vitamin C is a very important component of proper skincare products. Formulated properly in the right skincare products, both vitamin C and retinoids can be used together, every day, without causing a negative effect, such as inflammation or sensitivity of the skin.

3. Growth factors

Growth factors are another category of collagen stimulants. A particularly effective growth factor we use in the TRIFECTA is derived from a plant. This growth factor stimulates fibroblast production and triggers collagen growth at the cellular level.

I explain more about these ingredients and how they work in my video on must-have collagen-boosting ingredients in your skincare routine. 

What about microneedling or chemical peels?

Microneedling, laser, chemical peels, or any external treatment that causes controlled injury to the skin is going to boost collagen. These treatments work, definitely. But remember, you aren’t going in every day for microneedling or similar treatments. Most people have these treatments once every three or four months.

Using effective skin care every single day actually achieves a gain that is far greater than getting an external treatment every few months. Sustainable skin care that you can do consistently on a daily basis achieves the results you’re looking for much other than any other treatment. 

Watch out for factors that accelerate collagen loss

While you’re using the TRIFECTA on a daily basis, watch out for other factors that negatively impact collagen production. Be aware of sun exposure and do not smoke. If you’re going to be in out in the sun, protect your skin with a good, broad-spectrum, mineral-based sunscreen.

As you maintain your skincare routine and protect your skin from damage, you will see your skin begin to change. The downward scale flips, and you gain in collagen production over time. You will see younger-looking, more supple, luminous skin.
