Today we’re covering all there is to know about collagen supplements! It has been all the rage lately and we hear everyone from celebrities, influencers, and friends talk about the benefits of collagen. It is important to note that none of these benefits have been fully proven yet, but it’s worth a shot! So get cozy, grab a snack, and let’s chat…
What is collagen?
Collagen is a major protein that is found in the body, it’s responsible for the look and structure of your skin and strong bones! Rumor has it (not actually a rumor per say, but it makes us feel better) that collagen levels start to decrease starting at the age of 20. Yikes! Decreasing levels of collagen = appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of elasticity in the skin. Because of this, many skincare pioneers have started to include collagen supplements into their diets to help prevent early signs of aging!
What kinds of supplements are there?
It is important to do your research on the types of collagen out there to find out what will work best for your skin and the areas you are trying to target. Also, taking these supplements doesn’t have to feel like you’re adding more to your medicine cabinet! Powders can easily be added to your morning coffee, post-gym protein shake, or a favorite smoothie!
An added bonus to this powerful protein… not only will it help your skin, but it will also help strengthen your nails, hair, and bones!
Expert tip: For even more collagen in your skincare routine, you can look for facial products that include collagen in their ingredients. We recommend Babor’s new Collagen Concentrate, it’s one of our faves!
