Collagen, and the latest trend of marine-based collagen, is crucial to the bounce and beauty of our skin. It is responsible for its strength and resilience, as well as its smooth, plump appearance. And if you bear in mind that by the age of 20 our own supply is already in decline, just imagine that by 50 we’ve lost over half our reserves!
We don’t know about you, but we would love to bump up our supplies, starting from the inside. So let’s talk about marine-based collagen…
Drink marine-based collagen
We’re talking fishy, marine-based collagen here! It gives your body the means to repair its own connective tissues and makes the perfect inner-outer addition to boost your skincare regime. We just love these super drink-supplements; and always notice plumper and smoother skin within about four days of making the effort.
First on our list is Collagen Lift Paris drinkable collagen, R995 for 28 x 10ml ampoules, which is formulated with Mediterranean seaweed, bioactive collagen and vitamin C.
Another must-try is Sfera Bio-Nutrition Marine Collagen, R430 for 180 capsules, with loads fishy collagen.
Just two tablespoons of Harvest Table Pure Collagen Powder, from R450 for 220g, brims with 100% sustainably-sourced, wild-caught cod marine collagen and can be mixed in daily with your coffee, tea or water to give you the collagen boost you’re looking for.
