The collagen gel can be used to help reduce the appearance of acne and break out redness and pain, according to a new study.
The collagen gel is used in a wide variety of cosmetic products, including lotions, face masks and creams, and the gel contains hyaluronan, which helps the skin heal faster.
But a study published in the journal Clinical Dermatology found that collagen hyalis can also have an adverse effect on the skin’s ability to absorb water.
When the skin is dry and the collagen gel absorbs water, it becomes clogged, says Dr. Andrew Pugh, professor of dermatology at the University of Sheffield in the United Kingdom.
“It causes more irritation, which can cause more irritation,” he told the BBC.
“There is a good clinical evidence base for the collagen hyalaic acid to be a skin-softening ingredient, and so there is evidence that it is an effective treatment for acne and the underlying conditions of acne.”
According to Pugh’s research, the collagen in the gel is not just a cosmetic ingredient but is actually a skin cell that helps keep skin healthy and elastic.
The skin cell is made up of collagen, hyaluranin, and hyalotransferrin, which is a molecule made by the human body.
“The collagen hyaliic acid can act as a natural barrier to keep moisture from seeping into the skin,” said Dr. John Dyson, professor in dermatology and skin care at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.
“That allows the collagen to absorb moisture better, so it’s not just about how much collagen is in the skin.
It’s about how well the skin absorbs it.”
He added that while the gel can make the skin look better, it also can have a negative effect on skin’s overall hydration.
“Because the collagen is not absorbed by the skin, it will retain water in the creases, it’ll retain water on the face, it’s just getting stuck in places where it’s probably going to cause irritation,” Dyson said.
“So it’s a very problematic ingredient for a lot of people.”
The gel’s use in cosmetic products has increased dramatically over the past two decades, as more people sought out collagen hyals in a bid to look younger.
According to the Mayo study, over 90% of those who had collagen hyalos in their creams reported a positive reaction to the gel.
But in this case, it appears to have an effect on more serious skin conditions, like acne.
“You need to have a little bit of luck in terms of how often you have collagen hyaloic acid in your products,” Pugh told the Daily Mail.
“We know that you need a bit of a period of time between application to see the effect, so for most people, it may take five to 10 minutes.”
So if you want to stop the appearance and breakouts of acne, there are a number of ways to do it.
