Have you seen your favorite beauty blogger or Instagram wellness guru posting about collagen and wonder, “What is this and do I need to be using it?” Don’t worry, we’ll tell you everything you need to know right here. But first, here’s a little science lesson on Collagen (we’ll keep it brief).

Our body produces collagen throughout our lifetime, but the production slows down as we get older. And that process happens sooner than you think!
