So we’re in April now… just in case you missed it (we’re sure you haven’t) but yep, that’s a thing. Time is flying and the busier we get, the more those daily rituals we usually rely upon to keep us feeling our best fall by the wayside as we prioritise work, family commitments and just survival really, over our self care. We’ve put together our top 5 ways to get the most out of your Collagen Beauty™ so you can enjoy all of those hair, skin, and nail benefits.
1. Take it everyday
If you’re like a lot of our faithful Collagen Beauty™ converts, Collagen Beauty™ is usually a non-negotiable part of the self-care routine that fits seamlessly into the everyday by the simple addition of adding it to a brekkie smoothie or homemade morning coffee. However if these are the first things to be swapped out for a coffee on the run or the-no-breakfast breakfast, well then it is more likely that the results you know and love from Collagen Beauty™ won’t be quite as pronounced as you may be used too.
Collagen Beauty™ has some key differences from other collagen products in the market and this is why it provides such amazing benefits, but in order to achieve and maintain those benefits it is ideal to consume everyday.
That’s not to say you won’t see any benefit if you’ve skipped a few days here or there but if we’re in the business of not only helping to smooth wrinkles but supporting healthy and strong skin structure for the long term (which we absolutely are by the way), it’s definitely best to keep at it as our skin cells replace themselves every 30 days. That way you’re making sure that each and every one of them are getting a helpful boost of collagen as a part of that cycle.
2. Don’t take a collagen that doesn’t contain Vitamin C (Collagen Beauty™ has got you covered here)
Did you know that collagen formation can’t happen without Vitamin C? Lucky for you we’ve got you covered.
Our Collagen Beauty™ is made up of a combination of regular hydrolysed collagen peptides to provide enough amino acids to build new collagen, camu camu as a natural source of Vitamin C, guava extract as a natural source of Zinc and most famously, our collagen stimulating Verisol® Collagen Peptides that specifically trigger your body to produce more collagen in your skin, hair & nails (over other areas of the body like muscles and bones). So you’re getting all of the micronutrients necessary to support your body's collagen production.
3. Have your Collagen Beauty™ in both hot and cold liquids
The Verisol® Collagen Peptides are backed by multiple clinical studies that substantiate not only their effectiveness at supporting collagen synthesis in skin, increased hydration and in-turn, decreasing wrinkles, but also the way to best consume this very special ingredient to maximise your results!
Our unflavoured Collagen Beauty™ can be consumed in both hot and cold liquids (like coffee, tea, smoothies, soup) so you’ve got plenty of options when it comes to how you want to take your collagen on the daily.
4. Don’t overdo it - stick to one serve a day
According to the studies and systematic reviews that have investigated the effectiveness of Verisol®, for best results, it needs to be taken daily and for up to 8 weeks consistently to provide the most noticeable and beneficial results. Each 12g serve of our Collagen Beauty™ contains the clinically researched recommended dosage of Verisol® peptides, so there’s no need to have more than one dose a day.
5. Take alongside our Glow Mist
While our Collagen Beauty™ has you covered for all things hair, skin and nails from the inside, we also have our Glow Mist which utilises clinically proven micro collagen peptides that increase hydration, reduce wrinkles and protect barrier function, together with hyaluronic acid to plump skin and Vitamin C for antioxidant protection and collagen regeneration, and several organic botanical extracts to soothe skin. Use Glow Mist daily alongside Collagen Beauty™ to regenerate & protect skin from the inside out, whilst providing deep hydration to help you glow brighter.
