CREATED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH SWISSE ME
Collagen is one of the wellness world’s most buzzed-about ingredients, prized for its ability to smooth skin, make hair shinier, and ease sore muscles. But did you know once you reach your mid-20s, your body produces fewer hormones, and in turn less collagen – with studies suggesting collagen levels diminish by around 1% every year? This collagen slump causes weakening of the skin, which manifests as fine lines and wrinkles. Plus, if you’re a sun worshipper, smoker, or are partial to the odd glass of wine on the weekend, chances are your collagen is depleting at a quicker pace.
Science shows supplementing with collagen will boost your skin as well as your muscles, making it a top choice if you’re into fitness. In fact, boosting your collagen levels has been shown to build muscle, repair tissue and fight inflammation, strengthening joints and accelerating injury recovery time.
When it comes to tasty, easy ways to supercharge your collagen levels, SL favourite Swisse Me has you covered. Here are the products we rate…
