The One Collagen Moisturizer You Should Be Using, According To A Dermatologists

March 20, 2018 by Emily Belfiore

Collagen production plays a huge role in preventing fine lines and wrinkles as it gives your skin the strength and elasticity it needs to maintain a youthful complexion. But as you age, your collagen levels decrease, resulting in loss of firmness and elasticity in the skin.

“Collagen gives our skin its plumpness,” New York City-based dermatologist Dr. Amy Wechsler tells Into The Gloss. “We start to lose collagen probably around age 18, actually—it starts to slowly diminish…There are things we do to our skin or that we are exposed to that break down collagen more quickly than in the normal aging process.”

Not only do you want a collagen-boosting product, but Wechsler says it should be in moisturizer form to help reveal a healthy, hydrated complexion. “If your skin is well-moisturized, it’s going to look great—it’s going to be healthier, look younger,” she says.

We did some digging and found the collagen moisturizers that dermatologists recommend to get hydrated, protected and youthful skin:

EltaMD Skincare AM Therapy ($32.50) 

 

For the morning, Dr. Elizabeth Rostan, a board-certified dermatologist, recommends EltaMD Skincare's AM Therapy Moisturizer, which helps your skin retain 90% of its moisture for up to 12 hours. "I often recommend EltaMD AM either alone or in combination with another moisturizer. EltaMD AM moisturizer stimulates aquaporins, which essentially are channels for hydration at the cellular level," she says.

To help protect your skin and promote collagen production while you sleep, Dr. Marnie Nussbaum, a board-certified dermatologist and clinical instructor of dermatology at Weill Cornell Medical College, suggests using CeraVe's Facial Moisturizing Lotion at night. "It’s my absolute favorite product in the world,” she says. “CeraVe’s facial moisturizer is non-comedogenic, non-irritating, and contain ceramides and HA which are helpful for anti-aging, yet also good for all ages.”

In addition to incorporating a collagen-boosting moisturizer into your skincare routine, skincare experts also advise that you drink more water to help keep your hydration levels up. "The more hydrated your skin is, the better environment it gives for collagen and elastin [essentially skin's pliability protein] to thrive," Dr. Murad tells Cosmopolitan. It's also suggested that you eat a diet that's low in sugar as sugar ages the skin by attaching to collagen, which then results in it being weighed down and causing the skin to appear dull and feel dry.
