Love the skin you’re in! I love that expression, but I definitely don’t feel that way a lot of the time. In fact, I would say I spend far too much time worrying about the state of my skin; why am I still getting breakouts at aged 37, what more can I do to protect against the signs of ageing and sun damage, whilst maintaining a youthful glow. There’s a lot of pressure on women to stay young and beautiful, and Bare Biology’s latest product to launch on the market, could soon become your new beauty best friend! Read on for Healthy Living London’s review of Bare Biology’s complexion boosting pure Marine Collagen powder, Skinful.
What is it?
Collagen offers support to everything from our skin, muscles, bones, fingernails and hair. It’s hard to get enough from diet alone, unless you regularly eat organ meats or bone broths, which is why adding a supplement into your diet is a perfect solution.
Skinful is a pure grade, type 1 collagen made from wild, sustainable cod from the North Atlantic. Marine collagen powder is one of the best nutrient supplements available to boost your complexion, because it has nearly identical chemical make-up to skin. Human collagen is made almost entirely of glycine, proline and hydroxyproline, in roughly the same ratio you may find in marine collagen. And here’s a little extra piece of science; the peptide molecules in marine collagen are also much smaller in size than bovine collagen, making it more bioavailable and also more easy to digest, which is a bonus in my book. There are no added ingredients. It is beef, pork and chicken free, Gluten free, GMO free and a Halal product.
How does it taste?
The great thing about this powder supplement, is that it has a very neutral taste, and despite it’s source, it really has no “fishy” taste whatsoever. It’s really versatile, and can be mixed into coffee, for a creamy latte, added to smoothies, soups, or simply a glass of water. My preference is to add it to my daily smoothie, where I like to try and get as many of my daily nutrients and superfoods as I can in one hit! There are some really delicious recipes you can try out on the website. My favourite is the Blueberry smoothie . which is perfect for a quick pre-morning workout boost, or afternoon pick-me-up.
How much should I take?
Each pot of Skinful contains between 30-60 5g servings, which is tablespoonful. Bare Biology recommends using 10g daily for the first month, and then 5g daily thereafter.
Does it work?
Collagen has been used in face creams for a long time, but the trend for taking it as a supplement, which is proven to be more effective, has increased dramatically. We all know about the concept of “beauty from within” and the importance of maintaining a clean and balanced diet for good health and good skin, but by adding a spoonful of Skinful into your daily menu, you will certainly notice a difference. I have been using the product for a month, and my skin feels clearer, healthier, and my complexion much more even. I would say my face just feels a lot fresher and less weathered and I feel a better version of myself. I really like the fact that Bare Biology’s marine collagen powder mixes really quickly, easily and smoothly into any liquid and the fact it is basically tasteless and very easy to digest.
