Loving The Skin You’re In…
For most women approaching midlife and dealing with the menopause, loss of skin tone, texture and luminosity are side effects that are often difficult to come to terms with
For those of us who are unwilling to embrace wrinkle smoothing injections and fillers, it can be hard to know how best to help our skin to restore and improve that all elusive radiance as we age.
There are many brilliant skin care regimes which have the added benefit of being organic and vegan (Dr. Hauschka and Nourish) and which do a fabulous job for the surface of your skin. A healthy diet is also a must – but what about the complex world of supplements? How do you navigate it and, do they really work?
Thankfully, specialists have been researching exactly this area for many years, and believe they have the answer.
INTRODUCING COLLAGEN Collagen supplements are being hailed as the new skin saviours. To better explain, let’s answer a few questions:
WHAT IS COLLAGEN? Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body. It gives structure to our skin (skin is made up of 75 per cent collagen and gives skin its strength and elasticity), bones, muscles and other connective tissue.
Collagen production starts to slow down at around 25, and by the age of 45, levels have fallen by as much as 30 per cent – which is when you really start to notice. Add to the mix the onset of menopause and lowering oestrogen levels, and you have the perfect storm. As a result, skin looks thinner, with a loss of tone and firmness – and more visible lines and wrinkles. But the visible effects aren’t the only area of concern as collagen is the glue that holds your ligaments, joints and bones together.
WHAT ARE COLLAGEN SHOTS? Rejuvenated Collagen Shots are clinically formulated powders which you mix with water to create a drink.
Intensive research has clinically proven that taking collagen orally bolsters collagen levels, which in turn restores skin’s tone, pliability and thickness, counteracting sagging, dehydration, crêpiness (lovely!) and wrinkling. A study in the Natural Medicine Journal showed that women who took collagen saw significant improvement in skin texture after six months. The gold standard is bioavailable hydrolysed marine collagen.
HOW TO USE For maximum benefits take a Collagen Shot daily, ideally half an hour before bedtime which is when cells are renewing. Alternatively have on an empty stomach either first thing in the morning or before a meal. To taste, it is rather pleasant and has a delicate berry flavour.
INGREDIENTS Each shot contains 10,000mgs of hydrolysed marine collagen, hyaluronic acid, acai berry super antioxidant, vitamins B3, B5, B6, C (the process of collagen formation is heavily dependent on vitamin C), zinc and copper to boost your levels of peptide-rich amino acids. (Not advisable for those with fish or shellfish allergies.)
An anti-ageing cocktail that gradually, but dramatically, improves the appearance of skin tone and texture by helping to:
• Reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles and ‘crow’s feet’
• Make skin appear younger with added radiance
• Increase skin firmness and hydration
• Improve elasticity of the skin
• Reduce skin dryness
• Increase skin smoothness
Collagen Shots are suitable for diabetics, 100 per cent natural ingredients, gluten-free, lactose-free and contain hyaluronic-acid.
