The secret to glowing, gorgeous complexion? Collagen.
Collagen is a holistic-beauty protein that helps keep your skin youthful and resilient. After the age of 20, one percent less of collagen is produced in the dermis each year.
As we age, collagen starts to break down and in our forties, collagen is no longer produced.
Studies have shown that supplementing the protein orally boosts collagen peptides in your body, so we've whipped up a beauty drink du jour in our Beauty Kitchen for you glow-getters.
