What Is Collagen?
For starters, what exactly is collagen? Collagen is defined as the main structural protein found in skin and other connective tissues.
So, collagen gives your skin structure, but is that really all your skin needs? Let’s think of this for a moment in terms of building a house.
If collagen is like the bricks you need to build the house, what else do you need?
You need the cement to hold the bricks together, and water to mix with the cement to use it. This is the same basic concept when it comes to your skin.
