Will collagen help with acne?

When it comes to helping our skin looks its best with collagen supplements, the focus tends to be on anti-ageing. It's true that fine lines and wrinkles could be improved or prevented with daily marine collagen supplementation, but what about other skin issues? In this post we take a look at the question, will collagen help with acne?

Will collagen help with acne?

Although it may not be a direct fix for acne, those with acne-prone skin could benefit from reduced breakouts and scarring when they use collagen supplements.

How does collagen impact acne?

Collagen plays a very important role in the healing process of wounds. It is thought that if there is a problem with the key building blocks of the skin, of which collagen is a vital one, it might be more difficult for the skin to heal without scarring. Whenever we develop a pimple, we develop a wound, no matter if we squeeze the spot to extract pus or not, and let's be honest, we're always tempted to squeeze. Pimples are caused by bacteria that grow inside of clogged pores to create an infection that leads to swelling and inflammation of the skin.

When the skin is injured in this way, it needs time to heal, and that healing process could lead to scars. Since collagen is important for healthy skin healing, it makes sense that when collagen levels are optimised, the skin might be able to recover from pimples more quickly. Furthermore, the pimple might be less likely to leave an unsightly scar behind.

Benefits of marine collagen for acne

When it comes to tackling acne, it's important to adopt a skincare routine tailored to acne-prone skin. Collagen alone is not going to cure acne, since it doesn't impact factors such as sebum production or bacteria on the surface of the skin. However, marine collagen could help individual pimples to heal a little faster, and it might help to prevent or reduce subsequent acne scarring. Kollo premium liquid collagen not only contains 10,000mg of high-grade marine collagen that could help with acne wound healing, but it is also fortified with vitamin C. Vitamin C has anti-inflammatory properties, which means it could further help to alleviate the redness and inflammation that occurs with acne-prone skin, and contribute to a smoother, more even complexion.
