THE BEST COLLAGEN SUPPLEMENTS & WHY YOUR SKIN NEEDS THEM 

Collagen. Its that “thing” we all know our skin needs most, yet not many understand it fully!

In this post we will cover everything collagen, how collagen benefits your skin, hair, nails, bones and even muscles.

And what are the best collagen supplements to take. We did all the research for you, your body can thank us later!

So lets not waste time and jump right into the collagen pool!

COLLAGEN – WHAT IS IT, ANYWAY?

Collagen is a crucial protein that basically forms elastic fibers in our body. In fact, 25% of the protein mass in our body is made out of, you guessed it, collagen.

But collagens benefits doesnt end at your skin. It has huge benefits in strengthening your bones, tendons, hair, nails, and even accelerates healing of wounds.

According to this brief explanation by the National Library of Medicine, there are about 20 different types of collagen.

HOW CAN COLLAGEN BENEFIT YOUR SKIN?

Now that we better understand this fantastic protein, lets talk about the skin benefits of collagen.

Collagen is one of the main factors when it comes to wether your skin looks great, youthful and vibrant, or sags and gets wrinkled.

As we age, we lose the amount of collagen the body naturally produces, thats why many take collagen supplements in the first place.

But what are the skin benefits of collagen, you ask? well, keep reading.

COLLAGEN Generally keeps Your Skin Elastic, Your Hair Thick, Your Nails Strong, and Your Teeth & Bones Healthy! 

When it comes to the skin, specifically, Collagen, in short, keeps your skin elastic and firm.

By doing so, it helps your skin apear young, tight vibrant and glowing.

When we age and lose more and more collagen, we also lose the elasticity of our skin, therefore the skin sags, gets more wrinkles, and loses its glow.

Furthermore, when we lack collagen or have low collagen levels in our skin, even facial expression can accelerate wrinkles.

When our skin doesn’t have the elasticity it once had, it will be harder for it to go back to its natural form.

COLLAGEN TYPES EXPLAINED: Types 1,2,3,4,5

There are 5 main types of collagens.

To make things easier, our awesome designer made a beautiful collagen types chart below, feel free to share it via social media to show him your appreciation! 🙂

As the image below shows, each collagen type has its essential role.

Collagen Types 1&3 are mainly found in our bones, teeth, skin hair and nails. They are responsible for the elasticity of our skin, the thickness of our hair, and the strength of our nails and bones.

Collagen Type 2 is mainly found in the cartilage. It helps our joints and can prevent joint pain / aches.

Collagen Types 4&5 are essential for fibrillation of the collagen type 1&3, look at them as vital assistants to the main players (which are types 1&3).

As you can see, collagen has a crucial role in our body. Each collagen type has its own unique and important benefit.

“Should I use collagen creams and facial products in order to boost my collagen levels?”

and the answer is, yes, you absolutely should!

If you want to super-boost your collagen levels, you want to use both supplements and collagen based-skincare for maximum effect. 

And of course we won’t leave you hanging, while this post is mainly focused on collage supplements, we also picked the best collagen creams to go with them!

 

BEST 3 COLLAGEN CREAMS – BOOST YOUR COLLAGEN LEVELS TO THE SKY!

We know, we know. We’ve literally drowned your skin with collagen in this post. So we’ll keep it short and sweet, we promise!


#1 Dr Dennis Gross Vitamin C + Collagen Cream

Powerful moisturizer by Dr. Dennis Gross combines Vitamin C and Collagen – to make sure you skin is both protected with powerful anti-oxidants and has enough collagen to keep it nice and firm !

Cost: $72

 

 

 

#2 Elemis Pro Collagen Cream

This one is absolutely fantastic. In fact, some of our writers use it themselves (right Kate?) its very luxurious, feels great on the skin and absorbs fast.

Oh, and of course it has all the collagen types your skin needs!

 

#3 Sallcol Collagen Cream

These 3 collagen creams are the best ones we’ve found after our research.

They are NOT cheap, and you shouldn’t buy cheap skin care products. In fact, when we see a cheap skincare product, we get suspicious, because we know how expensive the good ingredients are.

As a rule of thumb, when buying facial / body products, look beyond the price and pick ones with quality ingredients, rather than using something cheap that can do more harm than good.

 

Before we call it a night, lets summarize todays (important!) post.

 

THE BOTTOM LINE 

Collagen is one of the most vital proteins in our body.

Its responsible for more than healthy, youthful looking skin; Collagens also responsible for your bones and tendons strength.

If you’re over 40, you’re losing collagen quickly at a whooping %1 a year.

Collagen loss starts as early as 18, contrary to popular belief.

Thats why its super important that you supplement your collagen levels with quality supplements and creams.

In order to give your collagen levels a serious boost, make sure you take it both internally (supplements) and externally (collagen creams). You can find both in this post (are we awesome or what?! haha).

We hope that post helped you better understand the importance and benefits of collagen, as well as what are the best collagen supplements you should take, in order to feel and look younger.

A personal request to our readers: will you do us a huge favor and share this post via social media? It’ll help us help you 🙂 thanks!
