Simple products to help you get more collagen and keep your bones, skin, and gut healthy

COLLAGEN is more than just a beauty product – it also keeps our bones, skin and gut healthy.

But as we age, it becomes harder for the body to produce it.

I’ve tried different ways to incorporate collagen into my daily routine, and our beauty editor put antioxidant-rich, anti-aging vitamin C formulas to the test.

Snack: Foodin Collagen Protein Bars are a 206kcal snack that makes a great alternative when you can’t handle supplements.

Since they contain hydrolyzed bovine collagen from cows, I was concerned they would taste strange, but they were delicious – mostly nuts and a thin layer of chocolate.

Plus, since they cost around five times as much as a regular candy bar, you’re far less likely to feast on them.

They’re available in Almond Sea Salt, Cinnamon Caramel, and Ginger & Lime flavors and contain 12g of protein, of which 6.5g is collagen. (£2.99 per bar, planetorganic.com)

DRINK: Revive Collagen Premium Liquid Marine Collagen Drink is derived from ethically farmed fish skin with hyaluronic acid and aloe vera juice.

I was pleasantly surprised by the citrus flavor and added a sachet to half a liter of water in the morning.

After 14 days I noticed clearer skin and shinier hair.

Each 22g sachet contains 8.5g of hydrolyzed collagen. (£33.99 for 14 pouches, hollandandbarrett.com)

DISSOLVE: A vegan-friendly collagen option is MyVitamins Beauty Plant Collagen Powder.

It dissolves easily in water or shakes and I’ve made a habit of adding it to my juicer.

MyVitamins Beauty Plant Collagen Powder is available in lemon and lime or orange, pineapple and grapefruit flavors

They are available in lemon and lime or orange, pineapple and grapefruit flavors.

They tasted natural and I found this one the easiest to digest and liked the fact that it had added vitamin C, zinc and copper. 10g collagen per serving. (£27.99 for a 255g can, myvitamins.com)

BUDGET – The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2% (£6 for 30ml, boots.com):

The Ordinary has several vitamin C products.

This is a suspension of very fine L-Ascorbic Acid powder to ensure the most direct exposure to high concentrations of Vitamin C topically.

I found this very strong so I mixed it with a moisturizer to dilute it.

It helped with pigment spots and sun damage on my face and my skin definitely looked clearer.

But it left a yellow residue on my hands.

MID CeraVe Vitamin C Serum with Hyaluronic Acid (£24.99 for 30ml, amazon.co.uk):

Described as a gentle yet effective lightweight vitamin C serum with three essential ceramides, hydrating hyaluronic acid, soothing vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) and moisturizing ingredient-release technology for all-day hydration.

CeraVe Vitamin C Serum with Hyaluronic Acid is ten percent pure vitamin C

This felt smooth on my skin and seemed to give me a healthier looking, glowing complexion.

It made my cheeks tingle a little, probably because it’s ten percent pure vitamin C, so I used it sparingly and mixed it with a moisturizer to ease a burning sensation.

LUXURY – SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic 30ml Active Antioxidant Serum (£114.99 for 30ml, less than £145, facethefuture.co.uk):

Contains a super antioxidant combination of 15% pure Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid), 1% Vitamin E (Alpha-Tocopherol) and 0.5% Ferulic Acid.

At first I could only use a very small amount as it burned and peeled my skin.

But it really worked in reducing age spots, blemishes, and sun damage.

I am concerned that the unique name I have chosen for my 9th baby will limit her options
My daughter, 2, was kidnapped but she was rescued in an amazing way

After a few weeks I was getting compliments on my skin.

Pricey but it made a real difference. My favourite.
