Does topical collagen REALLY work?

There is some debate as to whether using college and type using college and topically on the skin really works or not or not. Some think that it has to be ingested for it to make a difference in the condition of our skin. What do you think? Do you use skin care products with collagen in them? Do you think they really make a difference? Or is this just a marketing ploy By manufacturers to sell us more products?

Collagen applied topically does not affect dhe collagen in your skin structure. It can only moisturize the skin and act as an occlusive ingredient to keep the water jn the skin. Therefore the skin may appear plumper. The ingested collagen may affect the skin structure, but since it’s a big protein, it will break down in small amino acids and they will go to different places in your body where a specif protein is needed. So, it won’t necessarily go to the skin and improve it. Unless your skin is the organ that needs the protein the most. But, this can work for any type of protein, not necessarily collagen, so my advice would be to get the right amount of proteins daily by food. If you can’t achieve that, then protein or collagen supplements can be an option

Collagen is great for moisturization but the particles are too big to penetrate the skin. You're better off consuming it (and of course consuming the natural source is better).
