Is collagen a remedy for acne? Read Kayleigh’s experience of taking DermaShotz for hormonal acne

17 May, 2022

The benefits of taking a collagen supplement are pretty well documented nowadays.

We’ve heard about the benefits of taking collagen for smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, promoting hair growth, strengthening nails and promoting healthy joints.

But can collagen have a positive effect on dermatological conditions such as acne?

We received an amazing review from one of our customers, Kayleigh, on her experience of taking DermaShotz, daily, for hormonal acne (along with an amazing before and after snap shot):

“Having suffered with hormonal acne for the last 5 years I have tried every non-prescription remedy I have found with nothing ever working or improving my skin. After reading that collagen can improve acne I did some research on collagen products and DermaShotz seemed to offer the most. I have been taking DermaShotz daily for the past month and a half and I honestly cannot believe how much my skin has improved in such a short space of time. My skin isn’t completely clear but it has improved massively and for once I have hopes that I can get there. Cannot recommend this enough.”

So how can collagen possibly help with a condition such as acne?

Collagen is the most abundant protein found in our body. It is the protein which gives our skin it’s strength and elasticity. This is the key reason why collagen is frequently used by people as an anti-ageing remedy in a bid to battle fine lines and wrinkles. But collagen is also a necessary componant in the healing of wounds, including spots on the surface of the skin. It can also help to prevent and improve the scarring left behind by acne outbreaks. The other incredible way in which collagen helps with an acne outbreak is as an anti-inflammatory to help reduce inflammation. One of the key amino acids found in hydrolysed collagen, glycine, acts as an anti-iflammatory, reducing the redness and swelling of the skin.
