Tried and tested Skinade
When I heard about Skinade, a collagen-based skincare drink, I just had to give it a go. A product that cares for your skin from the inside, it’s full of micronutrients and hydrolysed collagen, omega 3 and 6 and L-lysine (a key amino acid for skin repair) to keep your skin looking younger, healthier and generally looking better.
So how does it work? Collagen accounts for 75 per cent of youthful skin. However, the older we get, the less new collagen we produce. Consuming collagen orally means that it can be absorbed into your bloodstream and tiny fragments will remain in the dermis for 14 days. This process then tricks your body into thinking that the fragments indicate collagen breakdown thus repair is needed. As such... it's youthful qualities. Clever right? But it doesn’t stop there, the process can actually trick your body into thinking that the fragments indicate collagen breakdown and thus repair is needed. As such it can stimulate our bodies to produce more collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid – the compounds that give our skin its youthful qualities.
They say it takes 90 days of taking a 150ml bottle a day to see the full benefits but I’ve only been taking it for 30 days and I’ve already seen a noticeable difference in the lines around my eyes and the general plumpness of my skin. When I was younger I suffered from bad skin and have always had wee marks as a result. However, taking Skinade has also helped to reduce these as well.
It costs £99 for a 30 day supply and I genuinely do think it’s worth the price – think of it like replacing your daily coffee fix from Starbucks. The peachy flavour is pretty refreshing too.
