Skin Care Collagen - Help with Wrinkles

If your skin is starting to wrinkle, you may have been doing a little research and found that collagen plays a large part. Collagen is the main protein of connective tissue of your skin. It is responsible for skin strength and elasticity. Aging plus environmental factors reduce the body's ability to produce collagen.

Research done by Kingdom University in South West London found that white tea prevented the activities of the enzyme which breaks down collagen and leads to wrinkles. The researchers were blown away by exactly how well the white tea had performed.

Another plant that helped protect against the breakdown was pomegranate. Research continues to show us how plants and not chemicals can help our body be healthier!
