Perfect Pro-Collagen30th Jan 13 | Beauty
Beauty has moved on from being skin deep and the latest anti-ageing solutions suggest a collagen supplement alongside a skincare regime is the best way to turn back the clock.
Collagen is a vital protein the body uses to keep skin plump, hydrated and soft. As we get older, the amount of collagen our bodies produce decreases and as a result skin starts to sag. There are various products available under the skincare umbrella that contain these collagen boosting particles which promise to give your skin a more youthful appearance. You can also increase the amount of collagen in your body by ingesting it through drinks or shots. These can help give you plumper and softer skin on areas not targeted specifically by creams. Here is a roundup of the leading products in the collagen beauty area.Collagen Shots by RejuvenatedAs you're taking this internally, you'll see a plumper and more youthful skin appearance from your cheeks to the soles of your feet. Various reports have also claimed that these shots help minimise pores too. This product comes in a 30-day foil pack (you take one scoop mixed in water or juice in the evening) and is a pleasant tasting drink which many of the other powders are not.PureLogicol's Collagen Supplement and Collagen Peptide Skin Supplement.This is a double whammy that works from the inside out to target the visible signs of aging. The topical skincare range works hand in hand with the collagen supplements to offer a skincare regime like no other.
