Supple skin is soft, lifted and elastic to touch. It is glowing, hydrated and fresh. When skin is supple, it looks youthful and radiant.
The truth is, when you are in your 20’s skin is naturally supple. But as you reach late 20’s, your skin starts to lose collagen - which is the natural protein that keeps your skin plump. By the age of 40, collagen loss is typically at 1% a year. Collagen loss makes skin appear as though it is sagging - it may look to have fine lines or wrinkles. When your skin isn’t elastic it doesn’t reflect light as easily, so it does appear dull, instead of radiant. On top of that, skin loses its ability to hold onto moisture, oils, lipids and amino acids - the good stuff that holds skin cells in place, making you look youthful and vibrant.
The good news is you can replace collagen and moisture levels. Oils do this particularly well, they soften skins outer layers, and begin to rebuild your skin’s structure with all important nutrients, amino acids and lipids.
