We all know how important collagen is for our skin. As we age, we lose collagen in our skin , which causes the elasticity to decrease. This can cause wrinkles, loose skin, and much more. One way we can increase our collagen is by taking a good supplement. Many of us can get busy, and it can be difficult to make sure to get your daily dose of collagen.

Wouldn’t you say it feels great to lay a chilled face mask on after a hot shower? They are so popular today, as well as convenient. They can help with calming the skin, help with bringing back a glow, and help with the reduction of pores. Even though your still drinking your green drinks, chugging your H20, and drinking your kombucha, a great face mask never hurts.
These are two my all time favorites, and I have tried them all . The reason I love these two so much is because I really do see a difference in my skin when I use them. I try to use a face mask once a week, on top of my weekly microdermabrasion. It’s important for glowing skin to microderm weekly.

Do you have sensitive skin due to too much sun? ( yes I hope your wearing your sun screen), or having breakouts for some reason? These oil free sheets helps draw out toxins and helps with calming your skin of any redness. Ginger helps to kill the bacteria , and the honey calms the skin.
This mask is one of my favorites. It’s one that you may want to wear when no one is home. It’s a bit expensive, but it’s worth it. It really radiates the skin’s clarity. It actually increases the texture, and gives it a great glow. This is due to the natural collagen production put into the skin. It gives the skin a tighter, firmer look. This can be done in less than 15 min. If you have never tried a great gel or sheet mask, it’s time to get one. They are wonderful at home masks that can do wonders for your skin.
What keeps out skin looking youthful? Collagen is a huge source for lack of wrinkles, crows feet, and everything in between. As we age , the collagen in our skin starts to degenerate and you can see the skin starts thinning, which in turn causes the sagging skin, and degeneration of skin. Aging is inevitable, but aging healthy is the key. The fibroblasts in the connective tissue , are the components that help with collagen production.
Collagen isn’t just good for the skin , but it also helps with more active joints. It is essential for the connective tissue and organs. I have been taking supplemental collagen for over a year, and I can’t tell you how it has made me feel. I have truly seen a huge difference in my joints, and as active as I am, it helps tremendously to be able to get up, and get to a workout, and not be sore afterwards.
It has given my skin a glow, and better clarity throughout. I’m not saying that this is some sort of miracle powder, but it does aid in the productivity of joints. It has really improved my skin health. This is now a daily supplementation I take, due to the huge difference it has made.
This powder provides amino acids for replenishing the skin, helps build lean muscle, and improves the skins elasticity. It is gluten free, non GMO, and is eco friendly! This has also provided a quicker wound healing. It has helped my nails grow stronger and longer. It is 6600 mg, and I do take a scoop daily. I add it to my water. It honestly is great!
