So while there are more temporary measures to fill the lips, one way to help maintain collagen levels naturally is through supplementation. Like Mindbodygreen's grass-fed Collagen +, collagen powders are made from hydrolyzed collagen peptides that are easily absorbed by the body. Studies show that these peptides help promote the fibroblasts on your skin, or the parts of cells that make collagen and elastin.
This powder also contains a variety of antioxidants like vitamin C and vitamin E to help fight off free radical damage. Free radicals go to town on our skin cells, further break down collagen and even damage our DNA. Consuming high quality, powerful antioxidants is therefore the key to healthy skin.
It all adds up to the recipe for long-term healthy, plump skin, which also includes those sensitive lips. And from there, you can apply your favorite red lipstick or lip filler – with a healthy base, why not?
