It's a fact of life that our skin's Collagen production will start to slow down as we get older, but recently you may have noticed a huge influx of natural collagen skin care products and inner beauty supplements. In this next blog, I take you through a few of my favourites.
Collagen is a protein naturally found in our bodies, and it actually plays a huge role in maintaining the structure of our skin. When we are young, our skin looks plump and supple, but as we age our Collagen levels naturally start to decline. Without Collagen, skin loses elasticity and firmness, leading to signs of ageing such as fine lines, deeper wrinkles and sagging skin. Collagen really is the key to youthful, plump looking skin! I always say it's never too early to start supplementing it back into your body with the help of some natural Collagen supplements and skin care. You can use just one, a combination or absolutely everything together - if you're anything like me, there's no such thing as too much Collagen!
Natural Collagen supplements
Shoalhaven Health Co. Natural Marine Collagen Pomegranate
One of my favourite tasting natural Collagen supplementation is the Shoalhaven Health Co. Natural Marine Collagen in Pomegranate. This delicious berry-flavoured powder contains natural Marine Collagen sustainably sourced from deep sea fish which is designed to help rejuvenate your collagen stores for healthier skin, hair and nails. Each serve contains around 2.67g of Collagen! It's also packed with billions of probiotics, Vitamin C, antioxidants, potassium and folate to support the digestive system. Add one teaspoon to your water, coffee, juice, or anything you want!
The Beauty Chef COLLAGEN Inner Beauty Boost
Another favourite Collagen inner beauty supplement is The Beauty Chef COLLAGEN Inner Beauty Boost, a berry flavoured elixir packed with concentrated, nutrient-rich goodies including Blueberry, Acai, Papaya, Zinc and Vitamin C which may help to naturally encourage the skin's production of collagen. It also contains probiotics to support gut health and encourage plump, radiant skin from the inside out. This Australian made formula is gluten free and vegan, and is taken diluted in water for a refreshing boost of hydration and nutrients.
Natural Collagen skin care
Vanessa Megan Marine Collagen Anti-Ageing Night Cream
To help target ageing skin, you can try the Vanessa Megan Marine Collagen Anti-Ageing Night Cream. This super-charged night cream contains powerful plant-based ingredients including Spirulina and Kelp Extracts to deliver plumping moisture which can help smooth fine lines and target age spots and elasticity. It also contains potent ingredients such as Ginseng and Gotu Kola, known as nature's alternatives to fillers, to promote a firm complexion and target the skin's Collagen levels. This vegan and Australian made night cream is best applied to the face, neck and décolletage before bed.
Mukti Microneedle Dermal Roller
To physically stimulate your skin's collagen production, you can actually use the Mukti Microneedle Dermal Roller. Based on ancient acupuncture and skin needling techniques, as you roll it over your face the tiny 0.25mm needles create micro channels on the skin's surface and send a signal to your body that your skin needs repairing, targeting Collagen and Elastin production. It's also designed to help improve the absorption of your skin care, allowing active ingredients to penetrate the outer layer and target affected areas.
100% Pure Ginseng Collagen Boost Mask
For a speedy anti-ageing treatment when you need help fast, I highly recommend the 100% Pure Ginseng Collagen Boost Mask. This stimulating and plumping sheet mask contains Korean Red Ginseng, Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid all working together to target Collagen production. The mask itself is made with Hydrogel, an Aloe Vera/Plant Cellulose material which is actually absorbed into the skin as you wear it for extra hydration. This can be applied to clean skin for 15-20 minutes after use, with no need to rinse afterwards. Perfect used before a special event or occasion!
