Beauty Tip: Eat Collagen
Collagen is not just something you inject in your face
Great hair, skin and nails seem like something that should come natural to everyone, but if you are like me, it does not.
I’ve put my hair through a lot within the past years and I have decided to give back.
For the past two months, I have been taking collagen in the powdered form and recently switched to the pill form.
What is Collagen?
I have previously heard about collagen in the form of injectables (fillers) and upon doing research about fillers (I am so tired of covering my dark under eye circles), I stumbled across articles about collagen in a digestible form. I did my research and decided to go ahead and try it.
Collagen consists of Amino Acids (the building blocks of protein) and improves circulation, strengthens the structure of bones, and helps with maintaining healthy skin, hair and muscles click here for more information .
I was interested in trying collagen for superficial reasons: hair growth and maintaining healthy skin.
I haven’t noticed much improvement in my under eye circles and frown lines, but I have noticed a difference in my hair. The funny thing is that the hair on my body is growing super fast while the hair on my head is growing faster, but not as fast as I would like it to.
I haven’t noticed much difference in my nails, but I’ve always had strong nails that grow very fast.
I have noticed less skin bruising. I am accident-prone and I have noticed a lack of bruises from recent run-ins in my nightstand and dining room table.
I have also noticed less soreness after workouts (it is protien).
So far, I like the product. The brand above is very inexpensive, easy to purchase and rated highly.
The biggest challenge for me is remembering to take the power form on an empty stomach with a source of vitamin C (orange juice was my choice). I purchased the pill form, but the price is more expensive and the quantity is lower.
