Did You Know These 3 Common Myths About Collagen

Did You Know These 3 Common Myths About Collagen?

Collagen is praised in the beauty world for its anti-aging effects, but does it work? Today, we're unpacking the 3 most common collagen myths.

With its increasing popularity, collagen myths continue to spread — find out the facts!

Collagen is one of the most abundant proteins in the body. It supports the structure of healthy skin and is found in our bones, joints, hair, skin and nails. As we get older, our natural production of collagen decreases, hence why we start to take supplements and apply more collagen creams. But there are a lot of collagen myths out there.

Here are the three common myths about collagen that you should know!

Myth: Taking a collagen supplement is enough to give you anti-aging benefits

Although taking collagen supplements can help, it’s not enough on its own. Often the supplement is benefiting the collagen in our joints and throughout the body. While collagen supplements do help with anti-aging, it’s not as drastic as some people claim.

Myth: Applying or consuming collagen can help boost your skin’s elasticity

While collagen can be great to improve your overall health, there’s been no scientific evidence that applying or ingesting collagen boosts your natural collagen production. However, there are other ways to increase natural collagen production and keep your skin elasticity intact. Retinol oil, vitamin C, particular peptides, protein, and leafy greens — these all stimulate the body’s own collagen production.

Myth: You don’t need to worry about collagen until you are in your 40s


The body’s natural production of collagen starts to slow down as early as our 20s, losing between 1-2% a year. This slow decline is what causes the aging of our skin and joints. Collagen production is also reduced by factors such as smoking, sun exposure, diet, and genetics.

You can start by using a daily moisturizer with collagen or consuming more leafy veggies into your diet to help your production naturally.
