As we age our body’s ability to produce collagen slows down, resulting in fine lines, wrinkles, loss of firmness and dull skin. Until fairly recently the only option to combat this was topical anti-aging creams but now liquid collagen drinks are forming an effective, first line defence against aging from the inside out!
Developed by leading UK scientists Skinade* is a natural peach and mangosteen flavoured anti-ageing collagen drink containing a unique formulation of 6 active ingredients that boosts your body’s natural production of collagen and hyaluronic acid. Multi award winning, Skinade is said to improve the way your skin looks and feels in as little as 30 days. Unlike other liquid supplements with an absorption rate of 30 – 40% with Skinade there is an absorption rate of 90-95%! It is worth noting however that as the collagen peptides in Skinade are sourced from fresh-water fish this drink isn’t suitable for vegetarians.
Having tried liquid collagen drinks in the past and found the taste to be sharp and metallic, I did wonder how palatable Skinade would taste. Fortunately the taste was fruity and refreshing, so it was easy to drink in the morning. I also loved the handy travel sachets that you can carry with you when you’re on the go and simply mix with water.
I began my 30 day trial of Skinade after the Christmas and New Year period when my skin was definitely looking lacklustre. After a couple of weeks, I noticed that my complexion was clearer and brighter, and the skin was firmer. It was a great boost to my New Year! At almost 35 I have noticed those pesky fine lines creeping in but Skinade definitely plumped them out.
A 30-day course of Skinade is £105, which is pricy but if you consider a coffee at your favourite coffee shop may cost you £3-4 every day then a course of Skinade is comparable and much better for your skin! Visit the Skinade website to find out more or purchase Skinade for yourself.
