Collagen itself is a protein that makes up the human body.

  13 April 2024 20:00 - To get healthy and youthful skin , there are many things you can do. Apart from having treatment at a beauty clinic and regularly using skincare, another way you can do this is by treating your skin using collagen.

Collagen itself is a protein that makes up the human body. Collagen is the structure for building bones, teeth, joints, muscles, especially skin. Not only that, collagen is also useful for tightening the skin. In fact, collagen itself is found in the human body naturally. However, natural collagen must still be maintained so that its production is not disrupted. But unfortunately its elasticity can decrease with age.

As we age, the body's natural production of collagen decreases, so the skin will experience various signs of aging. Therefore, relying on natural sources of collagen from the human body alone is not enough. In the midst of the slowing process of collagen production, you can increase your collagen needs by using skincare made from natural collagen.

The benefits of collagen which can maintain cell regeneration also have an impact on facial skin elasticity. By maintaining the collagen needs of the skin, premature aging can be slowed down. Apart from using skincare that contains collagen, you can also make collagen that can be consumed. This is done as a collagen booster which will make the skin look youthful. So you don't need to buy expensive collagen products on the market.

One way to make collagen that can be consumed, you can see from the video shared by a girl via her personal TikTok account @incesiana_kabrana on February 1 2024, which contains how to make collagen jelly using 1 piece of kitchen waste. The kitchen waste in question is dragon fruit peel. As a thickener, the girl also added jelly powder.
