Why is Collagen, Keratin and Elastin so important for a 40Plus ?
One of the first things I’ve noticed when I moved to Dubai 6 years ago, was the poor quality of water when it came to washing my hair. Immediately I felt the lost the shine and volume and my hair became much more dry.
Surely there were other factors that influenced, such as the adjustment of a change of climate, internal stress until you see your family settling down into a new environment, adjusting to a new life and culture, a new diet, hormonal changes, and many other unexpected surprises of our life’s journey. I must admit, it was always one of my weaknesses during the 3 pregnancies of my children and going through these hormonales changes, the quality of my hair, quantity and texture always suffered.
However, it is known that the water quality in Dubai doesn’t help, especially for a non-Arab like myself. I envy my gorgeous Arabic, Indian and Pakistani friends for their dense and gorgeous hair – I am sure there are other nationalities that can feel my pain.
That said, I became more conscious about my hair and I started to look after its quality from the inside, trying to find vitamins or supplements that nurture my hair and investigating what really works effectively.
The market is flooded with hair care products, masks, serums, shampoos, and each of us has his or her regular trusted brands that we are loyal to – adding some supplements to those will be always a winner combination.
There are also many products to strengthen your nails, skin and hair, plenty of vitamins, supplements but none of them will show us an overnight change and many of them not even an improvement.
On my constant search for new healthy and natural products I discovered “Tres Beauty 3” from Reserveage Nutrition. I am happy to say that since a year I am a regular user and it works for me. Reserveage Nutrition is a Florida based company dedicated to herbal natural supplements. Tres Beauty 3 contains Collagen, Keratin, Elastin, Biotin and Hyaluronic Acid and the results were satisfying already after treatment with the first bottle of 90 capsules. It stopped hair loss and the quality of my hair improved significantly.

Why is Collagen, Keratin, Elastin, Biotin and Hyaluronic Acid so important for a 40plus ?
Collagen is a protein found in the skin that gives the skin the appearance of fullness and smoothness. In addition, it sustains internal organs, muscles, tendons, cartilage, and is present in teeth. Collagen makes up 25 percent of the whole amount of proteins in the body. As you age, collagen production decreases, causing the appearance of wrinkles, scarring and sagging skin.
There are about 20 different types of collagen in your body. Each group of collagen has vital roles in many of the body’s functions, such as formation and maintaining of internal organs. Collagen is essential for healthy, smooth skin. The layer of skin responsible for wrinkles is called the dermis. The dermis is made up of blood vessels, sebaceous glands and hair follicles. Collagen is necessary for the support and elasticity of this layer of skin.
Collagen production naturally decreases as you age. In addition, collagen degeneration affecting the skin may be caused by environmental factors such as sun exposure. Connective tissue diseases, such as rheumatic fever, rheumatoid arthritis and lupus, can also lead to collagen degeneration, says HealthScout.

Keratin is a protein and the major component in skin, hair and nails; in fact, the hair is mainly comprised of keratin-associated proteins. Keratin acts both as an external protective protein in the cuticle (the outer layers of a hair strand) and as an internal structural protein in the cortex (the inner core of the hair that helps determine its strength).
Keratin is depleted when hair is damaged physically, chemically and/or from environmental factors, such as the sun. This keratin loss exposes the hair’s cortex, making it susceptible to additional damage, and causes porous spots to develop—much like potholes in a road. Replenishing lost keratin helps to correct porosity and smooth the hair’s surface. It restores strength and elasticity, giving the hair a more youthful, healthy appearance.
Elastin: A protein that coil and recoils like a spring within the elastic fibers of connective tissue and accounts for the elasticity of structures such the skin, blood vessels, heart, lungs, intestines, tendons, and ligaments. Elastin functions in connective tissue together with collagen. Whereas elastin provides elasticity, collagen provides rigidity to connective tissue. Elastin is normally no longer made after puberty and aging begins. Also called elasticin.
Collagen and HA are the main components that keep our skin healthy and glowing.
Collagen keeps skin firm, while HA keeps it nourished and hydrated. This incredible duo is what aids in slowing down the aging process. Regardless of your skin type, HA is gentle enough for sensitive skin, and amazingly lightweight for acne-prone skin. Hyaluronic acid included in a skincare routine creates a natural barrier that time and radical damage has caused, and will prevent further loss of moisture thus allow you to age gracefully.
It can help you hair, too.
Besides firmer skin, HA will prevent a dry scalp and hair from thinning and eventually falling out. It is recommended for children who suffer from progeria, which causes premature aging, and hair loss, therefore dermatologists believe that it can assist in cosmetic purposes as well.
