Updated on January 22, 2015

Understanding Collagen Face Masks

Thanks to the recent advancements in science and technology, you'll find a good number of new developments and approaches to handling every possible condition- even ageing.

While it is human tendency to age and grow old, thanks to a new approach, the effects of ageing are now miles away- especially from our skin.


Anti-ageing creams and lotions are now the thing of the past- welcome the brand new kids on the block- collagen face masks and creams. Equipped with a unique technology, collagen face masks and treatments are aimed at helping individuals reduce the visible signs of ageing including wrinkles, age spots, dullness and more.

Here, I'll be describing in detail about the basics of collagen face masks- how they work, and are they worth a try? Read on...


Collagen- Uncovering the Basics

For all those newbies out there, here's a simple explanation about what collagen actually is- Basically, collagen is a simple protein that makes up for around 25-35% of the total protein content in the body.

It is due to this very protein that our skin manages to retain its firmness and elasticity, and stay young and youthful. Devoid of the optimum collagen amount, the skin begins to sag and show signs of ageing.

How they work...

Collagen face masks may work in 2 ways-

  1. By stimulating the production of collagen in the skin cells
  2. By giving the skin an extra dose of collagen to keep it soft, firm and supple.

The Many Benefits of Using Collagen Masks

Okay, now that we've covered how collagen face masks work, its time to uncover the benefits- Here I've listed down some of the best, major benefits of using them.

  • Nourished skin- Skin ageing is known to speed up in individuals having undernourished, dry skin. Most collagen face masks don't just provide collagen, but also hydrate and nourish the skin.
  • Reduced signs of ageing- This one's pretty straightforward. The use of collagen face masks has been linked to better skin texture, and reduced signs of ageing like crows feet, wrinkles, dark spots and patchy skin.
  • Better stress control- Yes, you read that right. Collagen face masks have a good way of making you feel relaxed, calmed and stress- free.
  • Affordable and easy to use- Forget botox and other expensive anti-ageing treatments. Collagen face masks are totally affordable and easy to use- you don't need to walk into a beauty salon to look younger anymore!

Something extra!

While there's not much info available for this one, researchers believe that the use of collagen face masks may also help stop degradation of the collagen actually present in your skin, thereby preserving the natural youthfulness of the skin too!

Points to note while choosing collagen face masks

  • Keep in mind your skin type- is your skin too sensitive? Is it too oily?
  • Check out product reviews on the internet before purchasing the product- if a good number of people have experienced benefits, chances are, you will too!
  • Choose the best brand- don't compromise when it comes down to skin health.
  • Try to choose a collagen face mask that's natural and organic.

An Endnote...

While the use of collagen face masks has not revealed to have negative impacts on the skin, but it is wise to check with a dermatologist before using it.

Also, when you check out collagen face masks or practically any other beauty products to purchase, see if the product you're considering does not have any allergic ingredient as a vital component.
