Beauty routines can involve a lengthy list of skincare products and regimes. Women have countless different skin types, and face different challenges in improving the healthy appearance of their skin. From over and under hydrated skin, to reducing pores and tackling acne, no two women’s skin is the same.
No matter what your skin type, a collagen boost is one simple addition to your daily routine which can offer support for a multitude of skincare issues.
HYDRATION - for women suffering from dry skin
As collagen production starts to decrease, so does our skin’s ability to retain moisture. When you add environmental aggressors such as UV rays and pollution, which cause dull, rough, dry skin, an extra dose of collagen is vital to help maintain a healthy collagen matrix and improve hydration in your skin. Boosting your natural production of collagen will also have the side benefit of triggering your production of hyaluronic acid, responsible for improving skin hydration and ability to retain moisture.
SMOOTHING & PLUMPING - for women seeking to banish fine lines and wrinkles
As we age and collagen production reduces, the matrix which supports the skin is damaged and begins to wrinkle and sag. Collagen provides the structure your skin needs for a smooth, plumped appearance.
SOOTHING - for women trying non-surgical treatments
Ingestible collagen supplements are also a great support for women who are interested in Botox or dermal filler treatments. Collagen contains glycine, an amino acid which has been proven to offer anti-inflammatory support for skin. It can therefore help to reduce swelling which often occurs following non-surgical treatments. A good collagen supplement should also contain a high quality dose of Omega 3 and 6 (in a ratio of 1:4) and MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane), both incredible anti-inflammatory ingredients with soothing powers.
SUPPORTING - for women seeking support for acne
For those who suffer from angry breakouts, collagen is a vital addition to your regime, as the bacteria which causes acne can also damage the structural matrix of your skin. Collagen can aid the process of healing wounds caused by acne. In addition to its structural role, collagen also regulates the activity of fibroblasts in the skin. Fibroblasts are the cells that are responsible for rebuilding the collagen matrix in your skin, and they are triggered when collagen fragments enter the bloodstream.
SHRINKING - for women looking to reduce the size of pores
Whilst pore size is based on your genetic make-up, there are factors which affect the appearance of pores and which can be overcome. One such example is the breakdown of collagen, and wounds caused by squeezing spots and blackheads. Increasing collagen in your skin can support healing of spots, as well as helping to tighten pores. A Vitamin B complex will also have a detox effect, helping the skin push any impurities and minimise breakouts.
DE-STRESSING - for women whose skin is showing the effects of stress
We all suffer from stress from time to time. What you might not know is that stress can cause flare-ups of acne, aggravate fine lines and wrinkles and trigger dehydration in your skin. Alongside giving yourself some regular TLC, ingestible collagen can help to alleviate some of the effects of stress showing on your skin.
And finally...why an ingestible collagen drink does the trick:
Unlike topical treatments and even powders and pills, a liquid collagen supplement is highly bio-available and is quickly and efficiently absorbed by the body. Skinade is carefully formulated with the optimum ratio of liquid to active ingredients and contains key nutrients that are essential in the healthy production of collagen and the optimisation of skin health. Skinade increases collagen in the bloodstream by adding 7000mg of hydrolysed marine collagen from each bottle (daily dose). These collagen fragments will trigger the body’s own collagen production by firing up the fibroblasts, our own collagen factories. This process will also increase the body’s production of hyaluronic acid, responsible for optimising skin hydration and elastin, essential to youthful-looking skin. With no artificial colouring and naturally flavoured with refreshing peach and mangosteen, Skinade is the perfect partner to your daily skincare routine.
