Is collagen your new skincare saviour?

Collagen production is crucial in maintaining healthy, youthful skin. It helps to strengthen skin as well as boosting hydration and elasticity. As we age, our skin produces less, leading to dry skin and wrinkles. Let's take a closer look at the benefits on your skin.

Slowing down the ageing process

A number of studies have shown that taking collagen supplements can slow the ageing of the skin by reducing wrinkles and dryness. A study by Proksch et al. in 2013 (https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/23949208/) found that those taking an oral collagen supplement for 8 weeks experienced a significant increase in skin elasticity and less skin dryness compared to those who did not take the supplement.

The wrinkle-reducing effect has been linked to the ability of supplemented collagen to stimulate the body's own production, as well as encourage the production of other proteins which help structure your skin, such as fibrillin and elastin.

What about acne?

However, there is growing evidence that collagen could also be beneficial for those suffering from acne breakouts. It's common knowledge that most acne is caused by hormones or bacteria and is prevented by cleansers that help to remove the bacteria and balance the skin's ph. But it is now thought that in order to heal these breakouts, the body uses collagen to help heal wounds. Collagen plays a key role in scarrin. It’s used by the immune system to close wounds and form ‘new’ skin in the area. It could also aid in the calming of acne as one of the key amino acids found in hydrolysed collagen supplements, glycine, which also acts as an anti-inflammatory. There is also some evidence that this same effect could help in the process of healing eczema.

Combatting dry skin

In fact, even those struggling with simple dry skin could benefit from collagen supplements. A 2019 review of 11 previous studies into the benefits (Oral Collagen Supplementation: A Systematic Review of Dermatological Applications) found unanimous evidence that taking a daily supplement can increase skin hydration. It also helped to treated xerosis, a medical term for dry skin.
