As the main component of connective tissue, collagen is the most abundant protein we have, making up from 25% to 35% of the whole-body protein content. And as we age, our bodies naturally slow our production of collagen. It’s never too early to start caring about fine lines and wrinkles. Here are 5 must-try beauty products designed to boost collagen levels and help maintain a natural glow.
Scia Essentials Delta-5 Oil
If you’re looking for a face oil that does it all, look no further than Delta-5 Oil from Scia Essentials. This treatment reduces wrinkles and redness with anti-inflammatory mechanisms that promote an increase of collagen. CEO Alvin Berger has tested, formulated and patented the product after 30 years of research in skin, nutritional and pharmaceutical sciences.
Vital Proteins is probably the most commonly known collagen-boosting brand, especially since it can be found at the front of every Whole Foods store. From peptides and capsules to powder and snack bars, there are a wide array of options from which to choose. I prefer adding a couple scoops of powder into my lemon water in the morning.
The Ordinary Buffet
The Ordinary aims to increase integrity in the skincare industry with its ever-evolving collection of effective products. Buffet is a hyaluronic acid–infused serum that increases collagen production and supports cell turnover. With an unbeatable price and fast-acting results, this product is a must-have.
