I Thought Sagging Skin Was Inevitable—Until Now

The older I get, the more health-conscious I become. Over the years, I have perfected my diet and exercise routine to keep my figure slim and my health intact. Only one aspect of aging has defeated me – my sagging skin. 
 
I’ve always been mindful of the effects aging had on my skin. Although it’s a natural occurrence, I always dreaded the day my skin loosened and began to sag. Gradually, that day came. Since then, I set out to learn all the most effective and natural ways to plump my skin and reduce the appearance of aging.
 
To understand how to improve my skin, I wanted to learn about the protein that keeps my skin supple—collagen. Collagen is responsible for the skin’s elasticity. It makes up three-quarters of your skin and one-third of the protein in your entire body! 
 
I was shocked to learn that by the time we reach the age of 25, we lose approximately 1% of the collagen in our skin every year. By age 45, we will have lost about 30% of our skin’s collagen.  This results in loss of firmness in the skin, which we all know, leads to wrinkles and sagging skin.
After setting out to find products that help boost collagen production, I only found one—the bioactive collagen system by Orora Skin. This brand is the first of its kind to develop a vegan, topical bioidentical human collagen. That means their products are formulated with collagen that is identical to the structural protein found in our body’s connective tissues. 
 
Orora Skin studied the properties of human collagen, replicated them using a fermentation process, and made their creation vegan. This new collagen is called HumaColl21®. By using HumaColl21® in a topical form, the skin’s own collagen production is boosted. Think of it as a natural energizer for skin regeneration.
Furthering my research, I found Orora’s 4-week anti-aging study. This was a 29-day trial for 32 women aged 26-65. Volunteers were instructed to test the product for 29 days while the reduction in their fine lines and wrinkles was measured and recorded. The results were astonishing:
These results proved my theory: increased collagen production will increase the skin’s elasticity, firmness, and radiance. I’ve searched far and wide for a system that fought the effects of aging, while also being vegan. Usually, collagen is obtained from animal sources like pigs or cows. However, Orora is the first brand in the world to develop a topical solution using a sustainable fermentation process rather than traditional animal sourcing. 
 
I’m sold on Orora’s bioactive collagen system. This has been the only product on the market that has worked to keep my skin supple and firm. Their website is a great resource for learning more about collagen and ordering the system for yourself. For a limited time, first-time purchasers get 10% off using the code WELCOME10.
