Does Collagen support healthy, younger looking skin?Updated 2 months ago

Collagen is leading the functional beauty trend around the world. It's no wonder that this natural supplement can support the health of your skin, hair, and nails and help avoid the appearance of ageing. 

Collagen makes up 70% of our dry-mass skin content and as a major part of our skins structure, collagen fibers help support the elasticity of the skin by providing the infrastructure for elastin. As we age, our collagen levels naturally decline. 

The collagen matrix that provides skin firmness and structure starts to break down and our skin can become dehydrated and thinner, with fine lines and wrinkles beginning to appear. 

Not only does collagen support the structure of the skin to avoid ageing, but it also has been proven to increase moisture levels to help improve dry skin too! 

Environmental pollution and an excess of ultraviolet rays can also prematurely damage collagen fibers, limit hyaluronic acid production and decrease water content in our skin.
