Collagen has been a serious buzz word in the beauty world lately. I totally understand why because even at age 23, I’m terrified of aging. When thinking about anti-aging, naturally the first thing that comes to mind is collagen. For those of you who aren’t familiar with collagen, it’s a hard protein that makes up about 1/3 of your body. It basically holds everything together, aka the only thing standing between you and wrinkles. It’s not just in your skin though, it’s holding together all of your bones and muscles, too, and giving them their strength.
It’s basically the secret to staying young.
Before you go sprinting to Sephora to buy collagen creams… sadly collagen molecules are too big to be absorbed by the skin. The creams that claim to boost collagen are lying to you, guys. The only way to sustain collagen and boost higher levels of it is to stimulate collagen production from the inside out. There are quick and easy ways to stimulate and boost your body’s collagen levels that require almost no work.
