Is Collagen All Your Skin Needs?
Everybody talks about how important collagen is these days. You hear about it in commercials, from your friends, and in magazines.
But how much do you really know about this collagen stuff?
What’s the best way to give your skin more collagen? And is collagen really all you need for your skin to look its best?
I wrote this article to help you understand the world of collagen a little better.
What Is Collagen?
For starters, what exactly is collagen? Collagen is defined as the main structural protein found in skin and other connective tissues.
So, collagen gives your skin structure, but is that really all your skin needs? Let’s think of this for a moment in terms of building a house.
If collagen is like the bricks you need to build the house, what else do you need?
You need the cement to hold the bricks together, and water to mix with the cement to use it. This is the same basic concept when it comes to your skin.
