Four Ways To Add Collagen To Your Skincare Routine

Collagen is one of those beauty buzzwords that seems to pop up everywhere. From skincare, to supplements—collagen-infused products offer a range of benefits. So, what exactly is collagen? Collagen refers to a family of proteins that are the primary structural component of connective tissues, like skin and cartilage. In fact, collagen makes up about 75% of all protein in the body.

We start losing around one percent of our collagen every year starting around the age of twenty. As collagen begins to decrease, skin loses its plumpness resulting in the appearance of sagging, fine lines, and wrinkles. Other factors like smoking, alcohol, high sugar foods, and sun damage can also speed the depletion of collagen.

Lots of people think of collagen as an injectable—and it is! Collagen is used in numerous skincare treatments administered by professionals. It’s also used as a supplement that is ingested daily to improve skin and hair. Collagen can also be applied topically to restore plumpness, hydration, and radiance. We’re sharing a few of our favorite skincare products that use collagen to give you younger-looking skin.



Algenist Genius Liquid Collagen

The most effective collagen skincare products include collagen as well as ingredients that stimulate your natural collagen production. This is that serum! The unique formula contains Active Vegan Collagen™ in high concentration to help restore bounce and suppleness and patented Alguronic Acid to visibly reduce lines and wrinkles. Over 13,000 beads of microalgae oil deliver superior hydration, while skin-smoothing omegas and vitamin E leave skin soft and supple.
