Sensitive skin affects millions of us and while there are four general types of sensitivity (acne, rosacea, burning/stinging and contact dermatitis), they all have one thing in common: inflammation.

Anti-aging products and treatments are everywhere—and ever-growing. It seems like each week, another cream, treatment, miracle pill or you-name-it is coming out and promising to vanish our spots, smooth our wrinkles and make us all look beautiful and young.

The basics: Collagen is produced by the skin and gives it elasticity and firmness, which is lessened as we age (hence wrinkles, crows feet, lines around the lips, you get the idea).

Collagen facials are said to leave the skin looking plumper and revitalized. It also helps with anti-aging efforts because dead skin cells are sloughed away. I learned a very interesting fact about exfoliation…more on that in a minute. Collagen facials are especially popular (especially in Tinseltown) before a special event. Typically, this is a pricier spa beauty treatment than say a spa’s signature facial.
