Collagen Beauty Drink

Collagen is a crucial protein for maintaining skin health and elasticity. It is the most abundant protein in the skin, providing structure, firmness, and resilience. As we age, collagen production naturally decreases, leading to wrinkles, sagging skin, and loss of suppleness.
