collagen. Ok girls. I’ve been sharing it like crazy on SnapChat, but I can’t tell you enough how obsessed I am with Collagen!
It’s honestly one of the healthiest ways to get plenty of protein and healthy skin + hair without buying a bunch of crazy products.
I’ve been adding Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides to my coffee, and anything else I can think of like water, yogurt, smoothies, etc., andI freaking love it! It doesn’t taste like anything and totally dissolves so you don’t end up with nasty goop at the bottom of your cup.
I’ve tried tons of other brands, but my sister turned me onto Vital and it’s just the best.
♥Why It’s Your New Best Friend
Collagen makes up 70% of the protein in your skin and will actually help keep your face looking fresh and reduce wrinkles. Find me one person who doesn’t want that!
Changes to your skin are for sure the most noticeable sign of aging. You can keep your body fit, dye your hair and find awesome make-up products, but under all that, your skin shows your age. Don’t get me wrong, I love make-up, but nothing is more beautiful than feeling confident in your own bare skin.
Lots of women buy lotions that have collagen or even go as far as to get collagen injections to look younger. Yikes! Besides being super expensive, those are just temporary fixes and only really help on the surface. I’m all about avoiding the needle and taking a healthier route from the inside out.
♥Here’s What It Does & Why You Should Get on the Collagen Train
- Promotes younger looking skin
- Improves skin moisture level
- Improves skin smoothness by reducing the number of micro-relief furrows;
- Improves the signs of deep wrinkles
- Improves skin suppleness
Bottom line, if you get the right amount of collagen each day (10-20g) your skin can actually start looking younger. You can find it in foods like fish, leafy greens and eggs, but it’s hard to get enough without adding on tons of excess calories which makes Vital great.
I’ve also started using their Pasure-Raised, Grass-Fed Collagen Whey and the Collagen Beauty Greens and I’ve noticed a HUGE change in my skin and hair. My hair guru literally called me “Repunzal” when I walked in this week because it’s grown so much in the last 4 weeks!
You guys know I’ve tried about a bizzillion (yep, that’s a number) different proteins, but they usually have too many ingredients, fake sugars or other annoying things happening. This stuff’s legit. I just made some Coconut Blueberry Pancakes with the plain whey protein this weekend and they were awesome. Not too fluffy, not too flat. Juuuuust right! Get the recipe HERE.
