Have you purchased a liquid collagen supplement recently or in the past? Are you aware of the facts concerning collagen and how it can be produced in your body? By educating yourself, you will be able to make an informed purchase the next time you need an anti aging skin care product.

Advertisers claim that a liquid collagen supplement has many health benefits. Some of these benefits include reducing lines and wrinkles on your skin, improved cartilage and bone strength, better sleep and increased nail and hair growth. In essence, it sounds like snake oil. Technically, it is just misleading if it does not contain the right ingredients. Your body does need collagen because it is a very important protein.

This article will focus on the skin care benefits of collagen. However, first I will provide some background on this vital protein. Collagen gives your skin the texture and elasticity associated with youthful looking and feeling skin. When you are younger, your body is producing an abundance of the protein. This is why youthful skin is so pliable and healthy.

However, as you age, your body produces less and less of this very important protein. This is why your skin develops age spots, lines and wrinkles. Collagen must be produced naturally in the body. Therefore, you need to apply a cream that will help to stimulate the re-growth of this vital protein. A liquid collagen supplement may not contain enough of the necessary boosters to stimulate much re-growth.

Another thing that is very important to understand is that you cannot apply collagen to your skin and expect it to do anything. Thus, if you come across a product that claims to contain it, I would be very wary indeed. The molecules of this protein are too large to penetrate the layers of skin. Therefore, a cream claiming to contain collagen is virtually useless.
