Does stress impact skin aging?

Chronic stress can accelerate skin aging by increasing cortisol levels, which interfere with collagen production and promote its breakdown.

Collagen is essential for skin elasticity, and its degradation can lead to wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin.

What is collagen?

Collagen serves as the fundamental building material for various structures within your body, including skin, muscles, bones, tendons, and ligaments, as well as other connective tissues.
Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins, and collagen, in particular, is synthesized from a specific set of amino acids. The primary amino acids involved in collagen formation include proline, glycine, and hydroxyproline.
