Activist and podcaster Charli Howard, 30, is already a big name in beauty. Not only has she modelled for brands like Pat McGrath and Agent Provocateur, but she also has own beauty brand, called Squish, whose aim it is to make spot care pretty - if you haven't seen the Cheery Eye & Cheek Masks, Jelly Lip Glosses and Flower Power Acne Patches yet then get acquainted. Needless to say, that when Charli offers beauty advice, people listen.

And this week she took to her Instagram Stories to extol the virtues of Vida Glow's Natural Marine Collagen Original, £43 for 30 sachets. Her post read: 'Not an ad but MAN I'm obsessed with these edible collagen powders!! I've noticed such a difference in my skin after just two weeks of putting them in my tea.' High praise indeed. Speaking exclusively to Grazia Charli said, 'I've been putting one non-flavoured sachet into my morning tea. You can't even taste that it's in there, it just dissolves straight away. After just two weeks of using it I had people saying how glowy and bouncy my skin looked!'.

Beauty Pie have put a lot of research into their collagen supplement. In a randomized, double-blind placebo, controlled and ex vivo study, a 10g daily dose (one scoop) increased skin moisture by 28% after 8 weeks and decreased collagen fragmentation by 31% after 12 weeks. That's a lot to take in but think plumper, dewier skin in the long run. It's pricey for non-members but if you're a Beauty Pie member already it's a no-brainer. Oh and the flavour? A hint of strawberry.

'Our collagen powder is made with Marine Collagen from deep sea cod skin, it's 1.5x more effective than other collagen sources,' says Jessica Sepel, nutritionist and founder of JSHealth. Loved by Millie Mackintosh, the formula also contains vitamins, minerals and amino acids to support collagen formation. Oh and an added bonus – it tastes like blueberry so makes a great addition to any smoothie.

'I take collagen but I think of it more as an all-round body helper as opposed to a skin-specific supplement. I like powder forms of collagen best. If you're a bone broth person, which is a great source of collagen, then great but when it comes to taking collagen every day I prefer to use a powder supplement. I like Puori Pure Collagen Peptides, £29.99. I do believe with things like collagen, be careful where you get it from get a really good quality one. There are vegan forms of collagen out there too.' - Rose Ferguson, nutritionist.
