    Did you know that in addition to incorporating collagen into your daily diet for both health & beauty benefits, you can also use collagen powder to make effective anti-aging beauty masks?! Including collagen into your wellness routine by taking it internally and externally will help supercharge the benefits and leave your skin feeling rejuvenated & refreshed. Let's look at this DIY recipe for smooth & radiant skin.

    Why Is Collagen Important?

    Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body. It is the building material to renew cells in all body areas, including hair, skin, nails, eyes, teeth, cartilage, bones, tendons, internal organs, arteries, blood vessels, and the immune system. Collagen accounts for 80% of all connective tissue and 75% of the skin.

    In terms of benefits directly related to your skin, collagen encourages your skin to become soft, supple, and more elastic, which decreases the prevalence of wrinkles, blemishes, and scarring. It also supports the skin's moisture, improving the elasticity, tone, and vibrance, and helps to increase the skin’s clarity and smoothness.
