Collagen - Myths & Misconceptions by Dr. Marita Schauch - Book
Collagen is one of those buzzwords that is often heard but not fully understood. We scan through beauty magazines and see “anti-wrinkle” creams, and many cosmetic companies have us believe that just rubbing creams and serums on our skin will increase its collagen content.
According to The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), Americans are spending in excess of $11 billion dollars on face-lifts, Botox injections and other cosmetic procedures every year. Unfortunately, these options don’t actually help your body generate the collagen it needs to support genuine health and beauty, either.
