If you're anything like me... You are influenced daily by advertising whether you like it or not! Skin care corporations are very clever at advertising their products in the different types of media. Synthetic collagen is one substance heavily promoted as being able to give outstanding results at improving skin and reducing wrinkles.

As with all advertising and promotion -- What they tell you (benefit)... Is not necessarily what you get (reality).

Do collagen pills help your skin, and can they boost your skins collagen protein levels at all? -- "Definitely Not."

Now... We don't want to bore you with scientific and technical stuff -- you'll just have to take my word for it. However, I will share with you the most obvious reasons why these methods don't work.

Collagen taken orally in pill form is different to collagen produced naturally by your body and is unlikely to be used at all. There are 28 different types and your skin only uses levels one through four.

Applying a skin cream containing collagen also doesn't work! -- The molecules are approximately 4 times too big in diameter to fit through your outer skin layer... Therefore, it can't get to where it needs to go (the dermis) to make any difference.

But -- there are ways to increase collagen levels in skin. However... "There are pros and cons."

Collagen injections are a great way to increase it's level and reduce wrinkles quickly if you're prepaid to pay the price!... It's often unpleasant to go through, is only temporary -- and needs repeating every 6 to 9 months; the procedure is costly and it's also a time-consuming exercise.

On the other hand -- you can get a good result using a skin cream that is proven to stimulate the re-growth of collagen as well as elastin proteins in your body naturally.

Using these all-natural creams over time will increase your skins underlying structure, strength, elasticity and texture. This can result in a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles improving your overall complexion.

So... Don't let those advertising gurus and big cosmetic companies -- confuse and sucker you into buying either a pill or skin cream product containing collagen that won't work for you.

Hopefully, we have answered the question "Do Collagen Pills Help Your Skin" satisfactorily -- so you can avoid wasting your money on something that doesn't work.
