If you are concerned about the health of our skin, and skin aging, you might already know how important collagen is. But do you actually know what it actually is? Let's find out!
Collagen is a protein produced by our body and is present in our hair, bones, skin, and other parts of our body. One of its main functions is to maintain the structure of the skin. Not only does it promote elasticity, hydration, and reduce wrinkles, but it also helps strengthen hair and nails.
As you may know, there are several collagen-infused products available on the market –serums, face masks, lotions, gels, and even tablets! However, they are not the only source of collagen we can benefit from.
Did you know you could actually create your own collagen mask at home? Here we share with you a very easy way to create your own collagen mask with only two homemade ingredients.
How to do it? Learn here how you can have your own homemade collagen and avoid spending a fortune on creams.

If you still don't have an aloe vera plant at home, I would recommend getting it as soon as you can. Aloe vera has strong antioxidants and antibacterial properties, it accelerates wound healing and presents many other amazing benefits.
