If you love skincare as much as us then you’ll know Collagen is the latest buzzword in the beauty industry. From beauty supplements to moisturisers, everyone is using collagen in their products. But is collagen really good for your skin? We love skincare so much that this was a question we were happy to find an answer too.
First we need to know what collagen is. Collagen is a natural protein that is found in the human body, it is one the main building blocks which benefits our muscles, tendons and ligaments. It also gives our skin strength and elasticity. However, as we age our skin wrinkles and sags, this is due to collagen production decreasing.
To fight signs of ageing and the environmental strains we put our skin under daily, it seems natural to turn to what already has been proven to work in the body. There are many benefits of collagen in skincare. From reducing fine lines and wrinkles to the amino acids improving uneven complexions. It is no wonder so many people are raving about it.
Skin Republic uses collagen in a range of face masks as it provides an intense boost to a skincare routine. Some key benefits of collagen masks include but are not limited to:
Collagen masks are known to revitalise the skin for a youthful, radiant glow. As the skin has a 4 week regeneration period, to achieve the best results we recommend using a collagen mask 1-2 times a week for the first month then as required. It doesn’t matter whether you use it morning or night, apply at your most preferred time and give yourself a little pamper session.
As there are so many benefits to collagen skincare, it’s natural for there to be large amounts of collagen masks on the market. This means it can be hard to know which one is best for you. We’ve rounded up some of our favourites below to help you choose.
