It might be surprising to hear that collagen and copper work hand-in-hand to make our skin stronger. Our body is made up of various proteins, and one of them is collagen, which makes our skin thick and supple. When everything works as it should, our skin repairs and makes new collagen. However, when you add in things like pollution, stress, UV rays and IR, the collagen starts to break down and cause skin to thin.
Copper is a natural element in the human body that helps to repair and improve the skin. One of the elements that creates collagen protein is copper peptides: they promote the production of collagen, elastin, and act as an antioxidant. Copper also helps heal, hydrate, and nourish the skin, and can aid with skin conditions and irritations ranging from acne to psoriasis.
Antioxidants are useful in reducing and removing harmful free-radicals from the skin, caused by environmental factors like pollution and stress. When they build up, it makes it harder for new skin cells to form and that’s when you may experience dry and dull skin. Antioxidants help break down this buildup for healthier skin and pores.
Our Bio-Copper Complex is found in most of the products in the Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare line, and is an important part of the Bio-Clock Activation System.
