If you’re keeping up with the latest beauty trends you will of for sure heard of Marine Collagen.
And if you’re in your early 30’s like me, now (if not before) is the time to be adding as much collagen back into our skin as you possibly can.
As we age, collagen in our skin weakens which leads to those visible signs of ageing such as saggy or wrinkled skin. Our skin can feel less plump and look less bright as it will have done in our 20s.
I am a big believer in looking after your body as best as you can for as long as you can and have been taking supplements for the last 10 years, which often surprises my friends as they don’t! My mum has always installed into me the best way to prevent ageing is a healthy lifestyle combined with the right supplements. Both of these for me, are key to good skin overall.
Lets be honest no one wants their skin to lose that plump and wrinkle free look so we should be doing all we can to hold onto our youthful looks without automatically turning to the alternatives.
So what exactly does Collagen do?
Studies over the last couple of years have shown that taking a collagen supplement can help to support and improve skin hydration, and not only that but it has been known to improve both joint and bone health too.
As part of my mission for continuing to look after my skin I have been using the Marine collagen capsules and the powder from Correxiko for the last 5 weeks and have seen a vast improvement in my skin.
Correxiko promises the best ingredients. Their collagen is sourced from wild-caught deep-sea fish from Canada and their capsules include hyaluronic acid and Vitamin C two key ingredients for anti ageing.
For the capsules it says to take 4 a day. I found this a lot at first so have split it into two. I take two capsules with my morning coffee and a further two capsules with my lunch. They are as you can imagine super strong smelling but are easy enough to swallow and I am so used to taking them now that the smell doesn’t bother me too much.
I have also tried the powder but did struggle with this at first as I do have a weak stomach and I found the taste a little difficult to swallow. However, I persisted and now add two table spoons into my protein shake which has helped a lot.
So what have I noticed?
My nails where the first thing I noticed had changed, they have never been stronger and longer than they have over the last few months. And for someone who has tried many hair and nail capsules over the years, I have never seen results like this.
My hair has also grown so much so that someone commented on a zoom call at how healthy and long my hair was looking!
But for me, the biggest change has been in my skin, my skin has never looked so good. Completely clear and feeling plump and soft, I will for sure be continuing my journey with Correxiko and look forward to comparing results in a couple of months.
I highly recommend including Collagen into your regime sooner rather than later.
