Everyone is out on a mission to stop wrinkles and facial sagging in its tracks. Whether they are trying out new products or seeking additional treatment, wrinkles are everyone’s #1 beauty insecurity when getting older. The highly elastic protein, Elastin, is a connective tissueA pink and white card with the word elastin that allows many tissues in the body to resume their shape after stretching or contracting. This protein is made up of elastic yellow fibers found in a matrix of connective tissue and produced by fibroblasts and smooth muscle cells in arteries. These fibers can stretch up to 1.5 times their length, and snap back to their original length when relaxed.

There are many ways to boost this magical protein back into your body after it has slowly diminished over time from dietary habit or simply, aging. One popular method is applying products that contain elastin, such as serums and body creams targeted to increase elasticity in your skin.

You will find that serums and facial creams are more lightweight and can be easily applied to the face and neck. Whereas body creams target any problem area on your body, whether it be your hands, arms or legs. Women and men alike have been hooked on elastin/collagen creams and its “needle free” results when used properly and diligently.

You must be wondering, what is the difference between these two powerful proteins? Well, collagen is more widespread in the body than elastin. The main difference between collagen and elastin is that collagen gives strength and flexibility whereas elastin returns the stretched structures into the original shape. Collagen is a white color protein whereas elastin is a yellow color protein.
