What is all the fuss about collagen?
For decades now the gurus have been raving about how collagen is the secret to anti-ageing. There is good reason too as it is scientifically tried, true and tested. Collagen can bring your complexion firmness and improve elasticity, therefore promoting smoother skin and, you guessed it – less wrinkles! The older you get the more important collagen may become for you and you may begin to seek out ways to get more of it.
The beauty industry is saturated with all manner of products and supplements that claim to boost your collagen levels and help you attain that all-sought-after “fountain of youth”. The simple truth is that you can find the collagen within and fight back against the ages!
Collagen is a natural product
Collagen is a natural protein and is considered the most common and bountiful in the body. It is found almost everywhere including in muscle tissue, tendons, bones, the digestive system and – in blood cells (remember this one for later)!
When there is lots of collagen our skin will feel smooth, soft and firm (yes, that’s soft and firm at the same time! Amazing!). So, it follows that when there is less collagen, the skin begins to sag and lose its ability to bounce back with elasticity.
Anti-aging, collagen and giving (ice) face
As we age our body produces less collagen and we form wrinkles and age-related blemishes. The good news is there are very well developed, and even indulgent, methods of generating and stimulating the natural production of collagen in your skin. While you may be tempted by all manner of preparations that claim to “add collagen” to your system by ingesting it or whatever other concoctions are out there, all you really need is the magic of cryotherapy – and Fraîcheur Paris have got your face covered
Fraîcheur Ice Globes are the easiest way to kick start collagen production
Believe it or not, all you need to get the collagen proteins flowing is to give yourself a cryo-facial. Combining the beautiful soothing feeling of ice with a light face massage for 10 minutes a day will keep your proteins pumping on the deeper layers of your skin, promoting that smooth, healthy appearance on your outer dermal layers. When you apply Fraîcheur’s Face Ice Globes to your skin you are constricting blood flow by reducing the size of blood vessels. Remember what I said earlier about collagen being found in blood cells?
As you complete your daily ice treatment, and the skin returns to its regular temperature, the blood vessels dilate again. As this happens a rush of new oxygenated and fresh blood will rush back to the deep layers of skin, bringing with it nutrients and – more collagen!
The more you do it the more you make!
The more you ice massage your face, the more collagen you will make and the healthier your skin will be. Using Fraîcheur Ice Globes makes this a relaxing and indulgent daily routine that will soon become a ritual – and healthy skin, is younger skin!
