Collagen literally forms the bulk of the skin, and is kept well hydrated and in form by hyaluronic acid. Old, dried out collagen does not support the skin and shows up as fine lines, wrinkles and sagging. Pycnogenol® stimulates the natural production of hyaluronic acid in the skin, which then goes on to revive the collagen, which in turn lifts and tightens sagging skin. The study found that women with dehydrated skin saw an increase in skin moisture within just a few weeks of starting the supplement.
