This week on Friday Favourites I wanted to talk about a product I have been using for a year now and I remember within the first 3 weeks of using the product I started to notice the condition of my skin improving from minimizing pores and fine lines.
What Is Collagen?
Collagen is one of the most important structural components in our body and is the substance that holds the body together. It represents 1/15th of our body weight and 75%of our skin is composed of collagen. Many molecules are packed together to form long thin fibrils which act as supporting structures and anchor cells to each other and gives skin strength and elasticity. With Age, our bodies produce less collagen so its good to look into taking a Collagen, my choice is WithinUs’s True Marine Collagen
What Does Collagen Do?
Improves the condition of the skin with wrinkles, pores, age spots and texture. Increases the water-absorbing capacity of the stratum corneum and reduces the UVB induced skin damage.
In just 8 weeks if used every day you can give yourself a 4-year-younger appearance.
It helps give the skin more elasticity and restores./replaces dead skin cells.
Its really easy to use, You can put 1-2 scoops in your coffee, tea, smoothies, dressings or simply with some water.
I enjoy mine with water and cucumber or lemon. If you decide to go this route its best to shake the collagen with your water first to refrain from getting clumps.
Why WhithinUs True Marine?
I simply chose this one because it was a Vancouver based company that gives back to the community and many fundraisers wherever they can. I do my best to support local companies whenever I can and it makes it a lot easier when the product is really good. They source their collagen from sustainable wild fish in the sough pacific oceans.
