Why Astaxanthin and Collagen is Skincare's Dynamic Duo

A Quick Recap on Skin and Aging
Our skin is constantly exposed to environmental and lifestyle stressors. These unavoidable stressors put our skin cells (fibroblasts) at risk of oxidation from the attacks of free radicals. The free radicals are a byproduct of the stressors and unfortunately, also a byproduct of life. Without enough antioxidants to control free radical damage (to stop it from messing with your skin cells and even your body), our skin will become oxidized on a cellular level, which can speed up aging (we definitely don’t want that) and bring about degenerative diseases - definitely a no for this one!

Is our topical skincare ritual enough?
Even with habitual use of topical skin care, it will never be enough. Stressors lead to free radical damage and constantly break down our skin’s protein network deep in the dermis layer of the skin - where collagen and hyaluronic acid are produced (the key ingredients to glowing skin!). Topical cosmetics and skincare can only attempt to treat the very top layer of the epidermis (stratum corneum).
Here’s a quick and informative YouTube video that can further help you breakdown the intricacies of our skin layers and skin health!
What if you already take oral supplementation of collagen and vitamins you ask? You are definitely on the right track. But in order to balance out the cyclical free radical damage caused by unavoidable stressors such as UV rays, pollution, and oxygen, we have to implement powerful lipid-soluble* antioxidants like Astaxanthin to fight against the free radical damage and put our skin health in an advantageous position. That way, it can start adding collagen and hyaluronic acid instead of just replacing what’s been destroyed. It is a scary cycle that we can’t control - environmental stressors can’t be avoided. I know, very discouraging, but we have hope! This is where Astaxanthin comes to the rescue.
*Lipids (“fat”) make up the membranes of all our cells, making astaxanthin the King of Caretoids, but at Rozes HQ, we refer to it as the Queen. It is able to penetrate our skin cells effectively, fix and protect our cells from free radical damage.
