It's no secret how important collagen is to the health of our skin. It's the single-most hardest working ingredient used to treat signs of aging, loss of skin hydration, and joint pain. But it can be expensive. Which is why we were visibly shocked to discover that Boots had its own brand of collagen skincare.

What is the benefit of using collagen?
As we get older, our body loses its ability to produce as much collagen. From the age of 20, we lose around 1% of this vital protein each year. Hence the older you get, the more your skin loses its elasticity.
Therefore, to help with the preservation of healthy skin, it's important to include key supplements and skincare ingredients in your lifestyle so that your collagen, elastin and proteins don't deplete.
While scientists are still studying the efficacy of collagen skincare and supplements, there are millions of collagen devotees who use it and swear by it.
Boots's range "offers high-performance ingredient-led skincare at an affordable price", here's why it should be on your radar.

Boots Collagen Day Cream
Up first and easily the simplest item to add to your routine, it's Boots's Collagen Day Cream SPF30 (£12) — a lightweight, non-greasy, anti-wrinkle formula that shoppers say makes skin "feel soft and smooth", is "as good as premium brands", and makes a "great base for foundation". Working to improve firmness and deliver instant hydration, it's proven to visibly reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Boots Collagen Night Cream
The Boots's Collagen Night Cream (£12); the same as the day cream, but designed for use in the evenings. Shoppers love the fact that it's non-greasy, soaks into the skin quickly and has a subtle fragrance.
Boots Collagen Eye Serum
Next is Boots's Collagen Eye Serum (£12) — a lightweight, fast-absorbing eye serum that nourishes and revitalises the under eye area. So good, that almost 80% of reviewers say they would recommend it, with some even saying they "cannot believe the difference".

Finally, it's Boots's Collagen Serum (£12), an everyday serum that applies seamlessly, helping firm and hydrate the skin. One shopper, a beautician in fact, even said: "I’ve been using this for a few days now, honestly I can already feel my skin feeling much better to touch and firmer. As a beautician, I highly recommend it. It’s just perfect for my skin, feels so nice when applied and it’s not greasy".
