Collagen banking, the new trend putting skin ageing on pause


What is collagen banking? 

Hailed as one of the top skincare trends for 2024, collagen banking centres around the preservation of collagen in the body whilst we're still in our collagen-producing prime, to help preserve the skin's youthful appearance for an extended period of time.

It emphasises the importance of prevention over cure, advocating for the maintenance and growth of collagen supplies before the visible effects of collagen loss become prominent in the skin, hair, nails and joints which present as skin ageing, wrinkles, fine lines, loss of elasticity and hair thinning to name a few. By building up a reserve of collagen while the body's production is still efficient, it can help acts as a buffer against the decline of natural collagen levels. This proactive approach may help you to maintain a firm, plump, and youthful complexion!

While it's common knowledge that a healthy lifestyle and early skin care can slow down skin ageing, we are always seeking new innovative methods that really work. 

Is taking a collagen supplement the solution? 

Collagen is the crucial scaffolding of the skin, making up about 80% of it. However, our collagen production naturally decreases with age, declining at a rate of 1.5% a year from around our mid twenties and a further 30% in the skin during the first five years of the menopause.

Therefore taking ingestible collagen supplements, such as Revive Collagen, which works to trigger collagen production in the body, can be an effective way to help restore and boost your collagen levels before they start to decline with age.

Collagen loss can also be accelerated in the skin with increased sun exposure and damage - meaning you should always wear a high SPF all year round. 

How can I start Collagen banking and why does it work? 

There are many products and ways to start upping your collagen levels, but which is the most effective? Revive Collagens supplements are formulated in ready-to-drink sachets which should be taken daily to trigger the fibroblasts in the body to stimulate collagen production and provide optimum results. 

We use only the highest quality and doses of collagen with added ingredients such as Vitamin C to further enhance its efficacy. Upon entering the stomach, collagen is broken down into peptides, which can then be absorbed through the gastrointestinal tract and distributed to where it's most needed in the body. Each daily sachet of Revive Collagen is up to 20 times the strength of a traditional collagen tablet. With its collagen already broken down into a liquid hydrolysed peptide, it's already set up for optimal absorption. Did you know that liquid supplements have up to 90% to 95% compared to tablets which have only around 30%? Its active ingredients work swiftly from the inside out, aiding in the achievement of healthier, younger looking skin and hair from within.

What ingredients are used in  Revives Collagen supplements and what are the benefits?

Revive Collagen uses Type 1 hydrolysed marine collagen, which is the most bioavailable type of collagen and most similar to human type 1 collagen in our bodies - it's a vital component in maintaining skin elasticity and firmness.

Sourced from ethically farmed fish skin, the collagen undergoes hydrolysis, breaking down into smaller collagen chains known as collagen peptides. This process results in hydrolysed collagen, recognised for its superior efficacy.

Unlike other collagen products primarily consisting of glycine, proline, and hydroxyproline, hydrolysed collagen offers superior effectiveness. This distinction lies in the fact that these three amino acids alone do not form complete collagen molecules. Without complete molecules, the body struggles to absorb and transport sufficient collagen to the extracellular matrix.

Type 1 marine collagen holds paramount significance in bone, skin, and connective tissue health, forming collagen fibrils essential for tissue integrity.

With added beauty ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, aloe vera, retinol and keratin, Revive Collagen can help to provides game-changing overall benefits to skin, hair, nails, and joints, offering a holistic support for overall beauty and wellbeing.


When can I start Collagen banking?

Starting Collagen supplements in your 20s is a smart idea to help get ahead of collagen loss. As you hit your mid-late 20s, your body starts producing less collagen and levels begin to decline from around 1.5% per year - so why not build up your skin's resilience and keep collagen production topped up before it begins to decline. By starting early, you can help keep your collagen balanced and your skin looking and feeling its best!

However, it's never too late to embark on preserving and enhancing collagen levels. Whether you're in your 30s, 40s, 50s, or beyond, taking steps to support collagen production can greatly benefit your skin, hair and overall health. The key lies in being proactive and consistent with your skincare regimen - it all starts from within!
