Written By:

As we get old, our skin loses its elasticity and its ability to produce collagen. Collagen is the most abundant protein in any animal's body. It is an insoluble structural protein.

There are several reasons as to why the collagen production levels of our skin go down. Lack of enough hydration is one of the main causes.

While there is no sure-fire way to slow down the ageing process, or to stop it all together, there are some ways to stop ageing from happening before it's time.

Try to look for creams and face washes with ingredients such as retinol, glycolic acids, and AHAs and BHAs.
