We all know that the key to keeping our fresh youthful and plump is to use products on the skin to help look after the skin, but what if there was a way to keep your skin youthful from the inside?
We also know that Water is the key element to retaining elasticity and moisture in skin, keeping it looking youthful, however as we age, our skin gradually loses key structural components such as elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid and while properties such as hyaluronic acid can be put on the surface of the skin, what of collagen, which is responsible for the plump and smooth appearance of our skin?
This is where the Pure Gold Collagen supplements come in. Developed by Minerva Research Labs, the supplements are designed to help boost the levels of collagen, elastin and hydration in your skin. The supplements contain short chains of amino acids that are absorbed and distributed by the bloodstream into our body. This is the difference between the supplements and applying collagen via creams/moisturisers, as the creams cannot penetrate through the skin’s epidermis.
So I was kindly given a month’s supply of the collagen supplements to use; at first I was a bit hesitant because..and I don’t mean this to sound braggy in any way, but I thought my skin looked quite young as it is , however curiosity as always got the better of me and I decided to give it a go.
The supplements come in a pack of ten 50ml amber bottles which are to be taken once a day. Now you can choose how long of a program you want, either the 10 day, 30 day or 90 day program. As I stated earlier, I have the 30 day program.
The liquid has a very sweet, peachy taste with quite a spicy aftertaste that took me by surprise, but not unpleasant.
Now because I “personally” have not seen any signs of aging on my face, It has been pretty difficult trying to gauge the differences as I feel like I look exactly the same! I will say however, that my nails seem to be growing at a bit of a faster pace, and that my skin seems a lot softer, so in that way it could be said that it looks younger. A part of me would love to try this when I do eventually start to develop lines, however they do say that prevention is better than cure so maybe it is one of those things that will show it’s worth further along the line! It is a hefty investment however if you want to be in it for the long run (£71.98), so I would probably want to see proof of how it works on someone who has lines and aging skin before trying it again!
