Collagen and skin

November 12, 2019

It’s that time of the year again - the weather is getting warmer and Christmas is just around the corner (eek). What better gift to give yourself this year than glowing and vibrant skin which, turns out, comes in a tub! 

Skin is our first defence, our front line and our biggest organ. Keeping it in tip top shape is so important to prevent bad guys like irritants, bacteria or harmful UV rays from damaging and drying it out. Supplementing with two Islands high-dose marine collagen every day is one of the best things you can do for your skin. Marine collagen keeps skin smooth, firm and full of moisture to amplify your natural, beaming beauty. Collagen is to skin what Beyoncé is to Destiny's child... Vital!

Collagen is a combination of amino acids made naturally in the body when we eat enough protein. It’s essential, it’s natural and it makes up a very large portion of skin cells. Unfortunately, as we get older we don’t produce as much collagen, which can dry out the skin and speed up the appearance of aging (sometimes faster than we would like). Collagen also can’t be stored in the body so daily replenishment is a must!

The real magic of collagen supplementation shows when it comes to healing wounds. When skin is damaged by the sun, acne breakouts, dermatitis (eczema), psoriasis, or just general moisture loss, collagen tells the immune system to form brand new skin in that area, repairing any damage...Magic! New cells mean a tighter barrier, which means less water loss and less itchy, dry skin. Daily collagen is the go-to to help heal dry, inflamed, itchy, irritated or scarred skin.

Try adding Two Islands collagen beauty powder to baking, smoothies, coffee or just plain water to give your skin a boost, improve its quality and help repair any damage. You can thank us later.
