MyCollagenLift, une nutrition anti-âge optimisée : quand la science dépasse l'alimentation classique - MyPureSkin

MyCollagenLift, optimized anti-aging nutrition: when science goes beyond traditional nutrition

While the principles of a balanced diet help preserve your skin over time, they are not enough.
Although healthy, classic nutrition circuits are not enough to get the best version of yourself as you age.
Fortunately, the senescence process can be mitigated, attenuated, slowed down.
This is what MyCollagenLift offers your skin and this is the reason why this anti-aging food supplement was recently awarded an award at the Victoires de la Beauté.
But how is this possible? Why consuming a nutricosmetic such as MyCollagenLift gives better results than the best diets?
Discover the limits of a classic diet and how science overcomes them through MyCollagenLift.

Food circuits: how does your skin benefit?

Your skin is regularly subjected to attacks from the outside world (exogenous factors) but also from internal elements (endogenous factors).
UV rays from the sun, pollution, lack of sleep and stress are obvious examples.

To rebuild itself daily, it needs nutrients.
But what nutrients are we talking about exactly? To find out, you have to take a look at its structure.

Brief Anatomy: the underside of your skin

Divided into three main layers, your skin brings together different functions which are mainly:

  • Immune (barrier against viruses and bacteria in your environment) and homeostatic (control of your body temperature through sweating for example);
  • Informational (thanks to nerve endings but also to apocrine sweat glands contributing to sweating but also to the release of pheromones around you)
  • Nutritious, insulating (electrical and thermal) and protective.

If these three sets of functions are in reality covered in a shared way by the three superimposed layers which make up your skin, they are largely segmented according to the layers in question which are (from the outside to the inside of your body):

  • The epidermis;
  • The hypodermis;
  • The dermis.

Bringing together so many properties in an orderly way requires different cells and a soft and firm environment to allow them to exchange nutrients and information.

This is the raison d'être of the MEC.

MEC: vital element of healthy skin

Acronym for “ExtraCellular Matrix”, the ECM is mainly composed of three elements:

  • Collagen;
  • Elastin;
  • Hyaluronic acid.

All these elements are produced by certain of your cells then released into the ECM so that it retains its properties.

But what properties are we talking about exactly?

Firm skin thanks to collagen

Collagen is a macromolecule produced by your fibroblast cells and whose presence in the ECM gives your skin its firmness.
Characteristic of young skin, a high concentration of collagen helps prevent the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Conversely, the aging process slows down your collagen synthesis and therefore reduces its proportion in the ECM, exposing you to sagging skin that increases over time.

Elastic skin thanks to elastin

This loss of firmness is also accompanied by a loss of elasticity since elastin, also produced by your body, also reduces as you age.
The explanation for this loss of youth during aging is basically a reduction in your skin's resistance to stretching.
By comparison, the loss of firmness due to collagen becoming rarer can be understood when we keep in mind that its primary property is to offer your skin mechanical resistance to pressure.

Hydrated skin thanks to hyaluronic acid

Unfortunately, the damage from the aging process doesn't stop there.
The success of topical application creams and moisturizing agents lies in their effects on the increasingly frequent skin dryness as we age.
This situation is the direct consequence of a decrease in hyaluronic acid, another molecule produced by your body and whose role is to retain water to distribute it to your cells.

From cooking to chemistry, when food is no longer enough: should we turn to an anti-aging food supplement?

Natural, aging is inexorable and its signs are progressive.
From loss of joint flexibility to bone porosity to digestion problems, senescence covers a wide spectrum of “symptoms”.
However, it is generally on the skin that we first notice the effects with a loss of firmness, elasticity and hydration.
The principles of a balanced diet are the first step to slowing down these problems.
This explains the success of certain “beautiful skin diets” flourishing on the web. Beyond this trend, on a more serious note, nutritionists and dermatologists do not hesitate to guide their patients' diets to limit rashes and other skin problems.
This approach illustrates very well the importance of nutrition in maintaining healthy skin.

The role of diet in your skin health

The role of certain ingredients in cooking such as bovine or pig bones or even grapes is explained by the active ingredients they contain.
Unfortunately, traditions tend to carry their share of beliefs, sometimes out of step with available scientific knowledge.
This is for example the case of beef broth which is believed to maintain skin rich in collagen.
To understand its ineffectiveness in this regard, you need to delve into your digestive process.

Molecular chemistry and food: digestion under the microscope

As surprising as it may be, digestion is a key process for the health of your skin.
Indeed, the nutrients necessary to maintain your MEC come from your diet.
This is also what leads us to believe that the collagen contained in the bones of certain cattle can be directly assimilated when this is quite simply impossible.
But how can we “refill” our skin’s collagen “reserve” other than by “eating” collagen?

From proteins to amino acids: the important thing is the composition!

Collagen visible to the naked eye is a large structure composed of smaller molecules (collagen fibrils) and which falls into the category of proteins.
Proteins are made up of basic elements called “amino acids”. Hydroxyproline, to name just one, is one of the amino acids making up collagen.
As a result, the bovine collagen you consume during a meal breaks down during your digestion process into separate collagen molecules and then amino acids which then pass into your bloodstream.
This is how your fibroblast cells can have these building blocks to rebuild your own collagen.
In other words, the “native” collagen that you absorb cannot be used directly by your skin; it must first be deconstructed and then rebuilt.

Digestion is not an optimal process

However, you never get back the original number of amino acids that make up the collagen you consume. Indeed, it is a macromolecule, which means that it is very large and therefore difficult to break into smaller units.
The energy required for its digestion is significant and its breakdown occurs through various chemical reactions in your stomach, intestines, etc.
These reactions do not produce a perfect result, meaning that much of the collagen consumed in a meal is eliminated without being able to be broken down into amino acids.

Molecular mechanisms: signs of skin aging are not just external

Furthermore, if sagging skin is more and more visible as you age, the aging process also happens in your digestive system.
Losing in efficiency and becoming more energy-intensive as you age, your digestion degrades large molecules with increasing difficulty.
This means your cells are getting fewer and fewer nutrients, including the amino acids needed to synthesize your collagen.
In addition, the mechanism responsible for this production is itself “losing speed” while your cells experience more and more difficulty producing the necessary energy. Finally, the gradual decrease in cell number does not help.
All this leads to increasingly brutal skin sagging... Unless it is possible to intervene on each of these problems in a targeted manner?

The era of anti-aging food supplements

It is with a view to contributing to the resolution of these problems that certain anti-aging experts in the nutricosmetic industry have decided to put their know-how “in a bottle”.
Like MyCollagenLift, certain premium quality anti-aging food supplements take your aging process into account to offer you a meaningful turnkey solution.
Using collagen peptides that are considerably smaller in size than conventional (non-hydrolyzed) collagen, these supplements allow cells to benefit from more amino acids.
More “bioavailable”, several ingredients following this logic are thus used better by your body.
The result is better results: your skin becomes visibly younger.

MyCollagenLift: nutritional concentrate of youth in its purest form

It is through articles exploring in depth your skin aging problems but also thanks to the satisfaction of our customers that the MyPureSkin approach is understood.

Ingredients with anti-aging properties for healthy-looking skin

Understanding in depth the mechanisms of your senescence, synergizing, on a molecular scale, the properties of ingredients with anti-aging properties, developing a unique and easy-to-consume product... it's all this that makes up the expertise and the fame of MyPureSkin.
This is how we were able to compose MyCollagenLift, a food supplement designed to support your aging and offer a second youth to your skin, regardless of your age.
This nutricosmetic whose effectiveness has been demonstrated by a clinical trial draws its mechanisms of action from a formula at the crossroads of Science and an intimate understanding of active ingredients known for a long time by herbalism (plant medicine) .
As an extension of an initiative combining “natural ingredients” and “scientific approach”, MyCollagenLift therefore brings together:

  • Collagen peptides (stimulating your endogenous collagen production);
  • Hyaluronic acid (capable of carrying nearly 1000 times its weight in water);
  • Vitamins C and E (powerful antioxidants);
  • Grape OPCs (polyphenols adding to your protection against free radicals);
  • SOD (Super Oxide Dismutase), boosting your defenses against oxidative stress from inside and outside your cells.
  • Zinc (which combines with SOD but also has anti-inflammatory effects that stimulate your immune system).

Controlled synergistic effects for optimal results

These ingredients were not chosen by chance.
Beyond their individual properties and their effectiveness in combating the signs of aging, the active ingredients of MyCollagenLift are able to work in synergy to offer you the best.
Drawing on scientific literature, MyPureSkin has in fact composed a unique and creative formula to achieve optimal effectiveness.

Protective and promoting effects for the youthfulness of your skin

In a study published by Juliet M. Pullar's team in 2017 (1), we discovered, for example, the effect of vitamin C on the skin, in combination with vitamin E.
Vitamin C acts as a pro-factor of proline and lysine hydroxylase (two amino acids), a reaction that stabilizes the structure of the collagen molecule, which helps protect it from various degradations ( oxidative stress among others).
In this regard, as Pullar shows, vitamin E works in conjunction with vitamin C to significantly enhance the latter's antioxidant effect.
Furthermore, vitamin C also has a promoting effect, stimulating the production of collagen by preparing a favorable environment, as shown in a study published in 2014 thanks to the work of Aleksander Hinek and his collaborators (2). This same study shows similar effects on elastin synthesis.

From the scientific avant-garde to unusual efficiency

Qualified by the IEA (European Institute of Antioxidants) as an “exceptional quality product to combat oxidative stress”, MyCollagenLift also mobilizes the properties of SOD.
Still under study, its role as an “antioxidant umbrella” currently makes it one of the most interesting active ingredients.
The involvement of MyPureSkin employees in the search for effectiveness to match exceptional products has made it possible to compose an intelligent formula.
Bringing into play a synergy of ingredients to better protect your skin from oxidative stress (source of premature aging), the SOD-zinc complex works with vitamins and silicon to support your antioxidant defenses.
This quest for the best for your skin is crystallized in the formula of our entire range but, above all, in that of MyCollagenLift .
