All About Collagen: Healthy Skin From Within

The beauty ingredient EVERYONE is talking about.

Have you been been wondering what all the hype is about? Or maybe you’ve looked into it but aren’t sure which collagen product is right for you? At Skintopia we believe ‘beauty’ is not just skin deep, and that glowing healthy skin comes from within. Today we give you the low down on the in’s and out’s of Collagen supplements, and what they can do for you. (Plus, you might find a sneaky discount waiting for you at the bottom). 

Firstly, what is Collagen?

Collagen is a protein produced in the body that provides structure to most of the body, particularly our skin. As we age, the quality and quantity of collagen produced decreases. What this means for our skin is loss of elasticity, fine lines and wrinkles, and overall less hydration and glow.

But the good news! There are things we can do to supplement our bodies collagen, as well as increase our natural collagen production for firmer, plumper, smoother, more hydrated skin. The added benefits of collagen supplements also include healthier hair and nails, along with improved gut health, with some studies showing it has helped improve conditions such as leaky gut syndrome.

So, how do you like your collagen? There are several options out there on the market so we have done the hard work for you, curating our top three Collagen supplements ➸
