Side Effects Of Collagen Use At The Age Of 13 Years?
I am 13 years old, but my face is already blotchy, blackheads, broken skin. Can I really use that age, collage, and what’s the effect?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically at the age of 13 years, a child has entered puberty. At this time of puberty, hormonal changes occur that in addition to causing the appearance of secondary sexual signs (for example in men causing the growth of mustache, beard, pubic hair, enlargement of the penis and testicles, voice changes, etc.), can also cause changes in the structure of the gland oil in the skin. This causes the emergence of various skin problems including the appearance of blackheads and zits in their teens.
Collagen is actually just a food supplement that you can take at your age. Even so, you should look back at what goals you want to achieve from the consumption of collagen. The benefits of collagen supplements to overcome skin problems such as acne, dry skin and chapped are still not known with certainty (there are studies that show benefits for the skin and some are not).
If indeed your acne is included in moderate to severe acne (your acne is very numerous, you have cystic or nodular type pimples), you should consult a dermatologist so that you can be given appropriate treatment for your skin. The following are articles that you can read about how to deal with acne.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
