What is elastin?
Elastin, like collagen, is part of the connective tissue of the human body. It is part of the skin structure and its function is to provide elasticity to the skin, tendons, ligaments and arteries.
In other words, elastin ensures that the skin returns to its place after any effort, thus preventing breakage or elongation.
Up to a certain age, elastin regenerates itself, with physical exercise and healthy diet helping.
However, as the years go by, the production of this protein decreases, so it is advisable to help the organism externally to slow down the aging process.
Elastin to strengthen the skin
Providing elastin to the body helps to keep the skin firm. Aesthetic treatments, such as Revicell Pro radiofrequency, can be used for this purpose, and cosmetics in the form of serums or lotions, which help to restore skin elasticity, reduce wrinkles and prevent expression lines.
Natural elastin production
It is also possible to promote the production of elastin through some foods containing vitamin C, such as strawberries, oranges, kiwi, green leafy vegetables and whole grains.
