Collagen is responsible for the smooth, plump appearance of young skin, but unfortunately this protein has a hard time standing up to the damaging effects of environmental assaults and, of course, time. The good news is, you can supplement your skin with collagen and keep its natural production going strong with a variety of supercharged products.
When your skin needs an anti-aging boost fast, look no further than this potent serum. Infused with antioxidant-, ceramide- and fatty acid-rich winged kelp plus collagen amino acids that smooth wrinkles and restore lost volume, this hydrating serum can take years off your visage in as little as two hours. And apparently Jennifer Garner, Kate Mara, Leighton Meester, Emma Stone and Shay Mitchell are fans of this dermatologist-developed brand.
You know a product is potent when it’s sold primarily in doctor’s offices, and this night cream targets fine lines, wrinkles, loss of firmness and other side effects of collagen loss while you sleep. Featuring a patented complex of skin-rejuvenating proteins and peptides, word has it that this is Alessanda Ambrosio’s fountain of youth.
Ever wondered how Kate Hudson, Lily James and Yasmin Le Bon get that fresh-from-a-facial glow? As fans of this British spa-based brand, their secret may be this mighty moisturizer. Formulated with padina pavonica (a brown algae), ginkgo biloba, chlorella and floral absolutes, it leaves skin feeling firmer and looking more radiant—and it’s been clinically proven to improve the appearance of wrinkles in 14 days.
Offering a high concentration of vegan-friendly, plant-based active collagen, this serum strives to restore the skin’s youthful resilience and bounce in as little as 10 days thanks to 13,000 microbeads of omega-rich microalgae oil in every bottle. With ageless celebrity fans of the brand that include Nicky Hilton, Rihanna and Demi Lovato, how could you go wrong?
Collagen is actually found throughout our bodies, including our hair—and eyebrows.

With additional ingredients like nano-peptides, you get both instant and long-term lash improvement with every swipe. Just ask Marisa Tomei…
