For years we have been concerned with what ingredients to use in a bid to keep our skin looking its best. Lately though, it’s not so much about what we put on our skin, but in our body. And the ingredient everyone is talking about? Collagen. It’s very clear the collagen powder and supplement boom has well and truly taken off, with women of all ages seeking to replenish their depleted collagen levels and in turn, plump up their complexion.
But what exactly is collagen? Well, collagen is a protein we’re all born with which provides structure to your skin. The problem is, once we age the abundance of collagen that we produce, starts to decrease. In short – the older we get the less collagen in our body and environmental factors like sun exposure and pollution only add to your collagen depletion. This depletion of collagen can become visible in our skin – particularly on our face which can look less firm, and dare we say, lined, as we age. For years women have turned to creams filled with peptides and hyaluronic acids to plump up their skin but right now collagen powder and shots are having a bit of a moment.
Aiming to replenish your collagen levels collagen supplements offer a whole host of benefits but generally work to brighten, hydrate, improve skin tone and plump the skin. However, it’s important to note that some on the market are better than others. Enter Dr. LeWinn’s recently released Marine Collagen Peptide+ Inner Beauty Liquid Shots and Powder. Like their names suggest, both offerings are created with sustainably hydrolysed sourced marine collagen, as well as collagen peptides, antioxidants and Vitamin C. Backed by clinical testing, the range has been proven to improve skin hydration, firmness, smoothness, and strengthen hair and nails. Studies reveal 61% of users of the Dr. LeWinn’s Marine Collagen Peptide+ Inner Beauty Liquid Shots noticed more plump skin, and 86% of users noticed visibly healthier skin when trialling the Dr LeWinn’s Marine Collagen Peptide+ Inner Beauty Powder. And with both offerings being dairy and gluten free, with no artificial flavours or colours they suit most dietary requirements.
One of the best things about taking a collagen supplement is how effortless it is to add to your daily beauty routine. The peach flavoured liquid shots can be taken once a day and simply added to your still or sparkling water, or a smoothie. While, the powder on the other hand can be taken up to three times a day, and similarly, added to your favourite beverage.
One thing to note is that when it comes to boosting the collagen in your skin, the results are not visible overnight. In fact, a little patience is required before you really start seeing results. But trust us, if hydrated and plumper skin is on the cards, the wait will be worth it.
