Healthy skin care has been a priority of mine for as long as I can remember. Having the most sensitive skin imaginable, I've always been extra cautious when introducing new products to my daily regime. I've tried and tested numerous products, which often have failed and left me frustrated and disappointed. I always do a ton of research prior to even thinking of trying a new product, because the last thing I want to do is cause more harm then good. When given the opportunity to try Vital Proteins Collagen Peptide Supplement, I wanted to read more about what collagen is and how a daily supplement could benefit me.
SO what is collagen and how can it impact you, especially your skin?
Collagen is the basic building blocks of skin, hair, teeth, bones and joints. Not only does it work to increase your skin's moisture, elasticity, tone and vibrance, but it also can increase bone density! This is extremely important to me because I'm quite the active person and participate in many high-impact activities. Early-onset osteoporosis also runs in my family, so I need all the help I can get with building healthy bones!
When I found out about the anti-aging effects of collagen, I was sold on giving the Vital Proteins Collagen Peptide Supplements a try.
I started using the supplement mid December, and have already started to notice a difference in my skin. It looks brighter, tighter and more moisturized, compared to when I started using it over a month ago. I've had a few people come up to me and actually comment on my skin and how it looks recently! I know the body takes some time to process things before you can really see the effects, but I've definitely already noticed a difference. I'm beyond excited to see the progress over the next month as this is only the beginning!
I've been adding this powder supplement to my morning coffees, pre-workout shakes and milk and juices! There's no flavour so can't even tell you've added something to your drink. I've also recently found out that you can actually cook and bake with this supplement, so I plan to try a few recipes over the next month. The Vital Proteins blog is a great place for recipe ideas (check it out here!)
I plan to use this product long term as I'm quite enjoying the results. I thought it would be difficult to remember to take it daily, but seeing the outcome of my skin is motivation enough for me to remember!
