Taking Care of Your Skin from the Inside Out: Benefits of Biotin and Collagen Supplements

Let’s start off by answering the hanging question: what are biotin and collagen? Collagen is the main structural protein in skin. Biotin is a vitamin (also known as B7) used to metabolize fatty acids. These products are in many of the names of products you use regularly. Biotin and collagen are usually sold with products to grow or strengthen hair, skin, and nails.


When it comes to using collagen, it’s known for giving you glowing and healthy looking skin. As you get older your body will naturally produce less collagen, so supplements can be beneficial in slowing down the appearance of wrinkles and dry skin. Collagen can also help increase nail and hair strengthen, helping them to grow longer.


Biotin helps to improve the structure of keratin which is found in skin and hair. Using supplements can help you grow your hair faster. Biotin has also been known to help alleviate some forms of acne.


Besides helping you grow hair and rejuvenating your skin, biotin and collagen supplements can have other benefits as well. If you have dry, flaky skin, or brittle hair you could have a biotin or collagen deficiency. Taking supplements can help return your skin and hair to a normal state!
