The One Collagen Supplement You Should Have Every Morning For Younger-Looking Skin

Younger-looking skin is something that we all strive for, but it can be hard to obtain if you’re not using the right stuff. Most people that the secret to a more youthful complexion lies in a moisturizer or serum, but skincare experts say that the best way to improve collagen production and firm skin is through what you eat instead—particularly supplements.

“Collagen can be taken at any time as long as you get the daily dose of collagen peptides,” says Louise Marchesin, global head of marketing at Skinade, a liquid hydrolyzed collagen drink. “It’s been proven that the fibroblasts—collagen factories in our skin—will fire up when you consume between 5,500 and 6,500 milligrams of collagen peptides.”

Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides ($15)

 

Need help picking a supplement? Vital Proteins’ Collagen Peptides Supplements are the way to go. These pasture-raised, grass-fed, non-GMO, kosher collagen peptide supplements promote youthful skin, healthier hair, and stronger nails.

 

Just mix it into any liquid as it contributes to a balanced diet and helps maintain weight. Check out what people are saying about it:

 

“I absolutely love this product! I am on my third tub and even though I started seeing benefits from taking this within two weeks, I wanted to really give it a chance to do its thing. I started taking this for skin health and a hopeful reduction in fine lines. I have taken collagen before, both a popular powdered marine collagen formula (that is pretty popular on Instagram) and one that sources it's collagen from chicken and comes in a pill form. I took the marine collagen for at least 3-4 months and made it a couple months with the other one. This has given me far superior results to the others.” – NotThatGirl

 

“I love this product! My friend asked me if I've been getting Botox! My joints feel better and my skin looks amazing.” – AmazonCustomer

 

“I rely heavily on amazon reviews for just about anything I want to purchase and I've been using this for about 25 days it arrived very quickly I use two scoops a day in hot tea or a cup of coffee I've noticed that pouring this solution in cold beverages it clumps up and gets sticky so I'd suggest pairing this with a hot drink now for the actual effectiveness of this product I've used it almost a month and I have definitely noticed my skin looks a bit more hydrated and also my cellulite appears to have diminished no it isn't a cure but this product alone I feel does work.” - Phineas

So, when’s the best time to take this collagen supplement? Hadley King, MD, a dermatologist at Skinney Med Spa in New York City, says that it’s best to have some food in your stomach beforehand to prevent the acids in your stomach from breaking down the supplement because it does its thing.

 

“Your stomach acid actually decreases with food. So if you needed to protect the supplement from acid, then you would take it with food,” she tells Well+Good. “Collagen supplements are in fact usually broken down by your stomach acid—with or without food—into amino acids that are then used to build collagen.”
