HelloGiggles: “What’s the deal with collagen supplements? Experts tell us whether or not they’re safe”

The search for products that will give us the healthiest and most radiant skin is never-ending. From retinol-filled serums to hyaluronic acid-based moisturizers, we’ve tried everything topically to ensure our skin retains its elasticity and smoothness.
