Skinade Collagen Drink Review

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.

Introducing F.O.Y. Skincare

The F.O.Y. skincare range was originally developed to provide post-operative treatments for patients undergoing surgical and non-invasive cosmetic procedures. Standing for Fountain Of Youth the idea was that F.O.Y. products would help to prolong results long after patients had been discharged from the clinic.

Formulated by a team aestheticians, skincare scientists and dermatologists in 2015, there are now ten skincare products in the range, which is targeted towards mature skin types. I was very kindly sent eight products range to test out and I have to say both myself and my mum, who also became a willing guinea pig, were impressed.

Whilst we’ll never be able to stop the hands of time and there isn’t a miracle treatment to reverse skin aging we can up our skincare regime to help limit damage and retain our youthful skin for a while longer.

Clarins Double Serum and the Pycnogenol Challenge

French Maritime Pine Bark extract is an ingredient that features in Double Serum, one of Clarins most popular anti-aging skincare products, but did you know that as well as its use topically this natural botanical extract also has skincare benefits when taken as a supplement?

Pycnogenol, as it is known as, is a natural food supplement that is 50 times more potent than Vitamin E and 20 times more powerful than Vitamin C. In clinical studies has been found to reduce the signs of aging, so when I was asked if to trial both the serum and the Pycnogenol supplement I was hugely excited.

You can spend hundreds of pounds on the latest creams but if you neglect to eat a balanced diet or drink enough water that bright, youthful complexion isn’t  going to happen.
