Over the past few years I have become quite
obsessed with my wrinkles. Some of the
time, I feel I have earned them, and then at other times I resent them.
I have come to terms with my age, with my
weight loss and the resultant baggy skin and the wrinkles that have appeared
out of nowhere. However, when I had the opportunity
of trying Absolute Collagan by Maxine Laceby I jumped at the chance.
The collagen comes in sachets and they
promise the highest concentration of Type 1 marine collagen in a small daily
dose – which is then supposed to stimulate your natural collagen production.
Call me weird
Before I even looked at the reviews and did
my research I wondered if it would taste fishy or if I would get fishy
breath. I am happy to report that this
is not a side effect at all. It didn’t
taste fishy, but it is quite strong, so I mixed it with juice or smoothie.
Feedback from others and from me
A little google around the internet will
show some amazing reviews and testimonials. I initially only thought of collagen
in terms of skin, but of course when I thought about it I realised that it has
a really positive effect on hair and nails, both in terms of growth and
Now, my nails and hair have been a problem
for a while, primarily from medication.
My hair thinned a lot, and my nails were really brittle and split
vertically and flaked horizontally.
I tried Absolute Collagen for 14 days,
which means that I probably only got a taste of how good it is for you. If I am honest I can’t see a major difference
in my wrinkle situation but where I saw a dramatic difference was in my nails,
which are so long and strong I have to file them down, and my hair which has
grown and is lovely and shiny.
I have no doubt that should I continue, the
effect of taking collagen daily would have a long-term impact on my skin
Over the past while I have tried a number of
different approaches to keeping my skin plump, from lotions and potions to
vitamins and products such as Absolute Collagen. I have also upped my water intake, and tried,
despite the cold to get more exercise.
I think on balance, consistency is
key. Try things out, and when you find
something is working, stick with it.
Also, however I truly believe you need to love the skin you are in.
