COLLAGEN BOOSTERS TO GET YOU GLOWING
We’d all love to look and feel like we’re 21, even if we’re closer to 41 (give or take). Collagen can, apparently, help: whether you’re taking it in capsule or powder form, or lathering it on skin, hair and even eyelashes.
Collagen is a protein found in each of our bodies: it’s present in muscles, bones, the digestive system, joints, ligaments, and it’s responsible for maintaining skin firmness and elasticity. As we age, we stop producing quite so much collagen – which contributes to joint pain, wrinkles, injuries and more. Depressing, isn’t it?
Don't despair just yet, though; there are plenty of sources of collagen out there. Eating bone broth is one easy way to get your collagen fix, but that may not appeal to everyone (especially our vegan and vegetarian friends). With this in mind, we’ve compiled our picks: products that are designed to keep skin radiant and youthful, to give hair that gorgeous gloss, to lengthen lashes and to harden nails – not to mention improve joint mobility. The works, basically.
