I personally want to stay looking young for as long as possible. If I could, I would look like I am in my 20's forever and never see a wrinkle in my life. I have seen people in their 50's that still look youthful and beautiful, while others don't look so good. Have you ever wondered "How do they do it?" Eating healthy, wearing sunscreen, staying hydrated, taking vitamins, and skin care products are all variables for youthful looking skin that you have probably heard of, but there is another very important way to combat the aging process that you may not know about. The answer is collagen supplements.
You may ask, "Why collagen?" Collagen is a protein that makes up 75% of our skin, and is found in bones, ligaments, and tendons. It's important, because it acts as a glue that holds tissues together. After the age of 25 years old, our body starts losing about 1.5% of collagen each year. By age 40, 25% of collagen is lost, and by age 60, over half of our collagen is gone. This is the main cause of aging, wrinkling, joint pain, and degeneration.
This is why taking collagen supplements can be very beneficial to not only the appearance of your skin, but also your hair, nails, and your overall health. You can put as many creams and serums as you wish on your skin, but it is certainly more effective to prevent the aging process from within rather than to try and fix the problem once it's effects are on the exterior.
Neocell is the number one collagen company in the world. They produce all kinds of collagen supplements. I received a bag of their Beauty Bursts Gourmet Collagen Soft Chews to try out. It contains 60 individually wrapped mint chocolate squares that are full of Collagen types 1 & 3, Hyaluronic Acid, and Vitamin C. There is enough for a whole month, if you take the recommended two a day.
The Beauty Bursts taste just like a chocolate mint candy. They are very chewy, and it takes some time for them to melt in your mouth. I enjoy taking these as opposed to a regular pill, because the yummy tastes makes me want to eat them, therefore I am able to remember to take them daily. This is quite the accomplishment for me, because I always seem to forget to take vitamins, or any pill that I am supposed to take.
I love adding these tasty treats to my beauty routine. It's a very easy and simple step to take to look beautiful. I would recommend these to anyone who is looking for stronger nails, thicker hair, and more radiant looking skin.
