No proof for this: Collagen, a natural protein, has not been shown to increase by take it orally vs. a healthy diet with protein rich food. Gastric enzymes digest collagen to amino acids. Take care of your skin: avoid sun & 2nd hand smoke & pollutants, don't smoke, and get plenty of sleep on a regular cycle. Skin care should exfolliate, hydrate, & nourish with Vit C. HA fillers stimulate collagen to help scars.
