Along with a healthy, balanced diet, plenty of water and daily SPF, there are a few key skincare ingredients that can help make your complexion even more radiant. By no means new to the beauty world, collagen is one of those holy grail ingredients to incorporate into your routine, known for its plumping qualites that result in seriously supple skin. From supplements to moisturisers and teas and even DIY mixes, there are plenty of ways to add hard-working collagen products to your skincare arsenal. Here are a few of our favourite places to find those collagen goodies.
