Did you know… elastin is roughly 1000x more flexible than collagen?
Elastin is an elastic protein in connective tissue which helps the skin to snap back to its original position. Elastin shouldn’t be confused for collagen as it is a different type of protein. One way to help maintain your elastin levels in the summer is to wear sunscreen. Sunscreen acts as an anti-ageing toolkit which prevents sun damage and by default it also prevents elastin degradation.
