Does collagen really stop you getting wrinkles?

Post by katie90 »

Hey ladies,

So, who else has been hearing all the buzz about collagen lately? Apparently, it's the magical elixir that can stop wrinkles in their tracks. I mean, who doesn't want that, right? But, here's the thing, I've been using it for a little while now and I'm not sure if it's actually working or if it's just a load of bull. Any fellow skeptics out there?

Also, I've been hearing some rumors that collagen causes bloating and makes you fat. Now, I don't know about you guys, but the last thing I need is a double chin. Although, let's be honest, that could just be from all the junk food I've been eating. 🤭

But seriously, what are the main benefits of drinking collagen? Is it worth the hype? And more importantly, what's the best collagen out there at the best price? I've been buying one with vitamin C in it and it tastes pretty good because of the sweetener, but is that stuff bad for you? I mean, I don't want to stop using it if it's actually working, but I also don't want to turn into a sweetener addict.

Help a sister out and let me know your thoughts! 😋

Hey lovely! Yeah, collagen is so good when it comes to keeping your skin looking young and fresh. But it’s not gonna make you bloated or make you fat, so don’t worry about that. If anything, it’ll help you lose weight ‘cause it’ll keep you fuller for longer. As for the double chin, it could be something else causing it, like too much salt in your diet or not enough exercise. The main benefits of drinking collagen are that it helps with skin elasticity, reduces wrinkles and cellulite, and it’s good for your joints and gut health. The best collagen out there is probably the one that’s gonna cost you an arm and a leg, but I’ve found some good ones on Holland and Barret that are reasonably priced. And sweetener ain’t gonna kill ya, love. Just don’t go overboard with it, yeah? 😝

I’ve been taking collagen for a while now and I’ve found that it’s really helped with my joint pain and overall skin health. I’ve never experienced bloating or weight gain from it, but everyone’s body is different. It’s possible that your double chin is from something else, like genetics or posture. The main benefits I drink it for are that it can help improve skin elasticity, reduce wrinkles and fine lines, strengthen hair and nails, and boost gut health. I personally like the Vital Proteins brand, but it can be a bit pricey. As for sweetener, it’s not the best for you, but if you’re gonna have it, go for something natural like stevia or monk fruit. Hope that helps, love!

Save your money! Don't fall for the collagen powder hype. Instead, invest in a good moisturizer and sunscreen, drink plenty of water, and get enough sleep. Because at the end of the day, there is no magical elixir that can stop the aging process. Sorry to burst your bubble, but that's just the harsh reality of life. 😅

🤔 Hmm, IMO collagen can be helpful because your body stops naturally producing after a certain age. It's a protein that's naturally found in the body and helps keep our skin looking plump and smooth. Although whilst it is claimed that taking collagen supplements or using collagen skincare products can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, there's not a ton of scientific evidence to back this up. 🤷‍♀️ That being said, there's no harm in trying it out and seeing if it works for you! Just make sure you're getting your collagen from a reputable source and not, like, grinding up hooves or something. Good luck on your wrinkle-fighting journey! 🥰
