CollagenProductionThe protein collagen can be found in the dermal layer of the skin. Collagen provides support and elasticity for the skin. Collectively with elastin (a structure of protein which can also be found in the dermal layer of the skin), they form part of the connective tissues which are located underneath the epidermis. Due to old age and other harmful chemicals, our skin develops wrinkles. Wrinkles appear when the dermis starts to get thin and our skin cells breaks up slowly than usual. Having a facial, especially facial massage helps stimulate the production of collagen. This keeps our skin supple, firm and elastic even with old age.
