Similar to wrinkles and fine lines, the earlier you start paying extra attention to these thinner areas, the better. That means prioritizing sun care, hydration, and topical actives that promote collagen production (such as vitamin C, glycolic acid, and retinol). But that’s not the whole picture. To truly combat crepey skin, you’ll need to look internally, as that’s where the natural skin aging process persists regardless of topical methods.
You see, when you’re younger, your collagen production is generally balanced with degradation, but this scale tips as you age because aged fibroblasts produce less collagen1. One way to support your natural balance, research demonstrates, is through collagen supplementation.* Studies show that hydrolyzed collagen peptides are able to enhance your collagen production by stimulating fibroblasts2, those same cells that make collagen and elastin to begin with.*
Of course, not all collagen supplements are created equal. Some collagen supplements work better than others, and we’re proud to say our beauty & gut collagen+ blend has been formulated to deliver high-quality and comprehensive results that go far beyond supporting natural collagen balance (read more about our standout ingredients here).*
We know that a lack of skin hydration contributes to skin aging as well, which is why we added hyaluronic acid to our formula. This way, your skin’s internal hydration stays supported from the inside out (side note: HA supplementation is great for encouraging joint comfort as well).*
