Jude is an expert facialist who would recommend collagen peptides over most skincare products - here's why.
Meet Jude 👋
Jude is a skincare specialist and facialist who has used collagen peptides as part of her own beauty regime for many years.
She also recommends collagen supplements to her clients, as she is a firm believer in the power of diet and nutrition to help us look and feel great.
"As a facialist the question I am asked most often is 'what products should I have in my routine for healthy skin?' And you might be surprised to know that I recommend a collagen supplement over most skincare products."
Unlike many topical skincare products which often don't penetrate beneath the surface of the skin, Jude champions collagen as it gives the body the essential nutrients it needs to promote better skin health from within.
Why Jude Trusts Hunter & Gather Collagen Peptides
Jude chooses Hunter & Gather collagen peptides for herself and her clients, trusting them as a quality, clean and natural source of highly bioavailable collagen.
"Hunter & Gather hydrolysed collagen peptides offer an evidence-based solution to skincare. I take their bovine collagen everyday as it supports my overall wellness and longevity goals."
"Hunter & Gather offer two different types of collagen peptides and your wellness goal will determine which is best for you. If skin, hair and nail health is your primary objective, try marine collagen. If, like me (I'm a woman in my forties) you want to think about overall health, your joints, ligaments and muscles as well as skin health - then bovine collagen is the way to go!"
Benefits of Collagen Peptides for Healthy Skin
Collagen is a key structural protein in the body — it helps build healthy, rigid bones and teeth, produces lubricating, well-functioning joints and is essential for skin health.
Science shows that consuming collagen peptides can help to reduce wrinkles, improve the hydration of your skin and strengthen skin elasticity.
"There's countless studies and papers to show that taking a collagen supplement has a positive impact on skin and skin ageing."
In fact, one study showed that taking collagen supplements for just four weeks showed significant improvements in skin hydration, elasticity, roughness and density.
Another study showed that taking collagen peptides daily for eight weeks could significantly decrease wrinkles and dark spots under the eyes.
Ageing is a key determinant of skin health and collagen production naturally declines as we age - so supplementing your diet with collagen is one of the best ways to help you look younger for longer.
