Skin Care Soul Mates: This Duo is all about Skin Love
Meet collagen and hyaluronic acid, the dream team behind supple, youthful skin.
Collagen and hyaluronic acid are the key components of healthy, glowing skin. Both are crucial to any evolved skin and health care program. Read on for everything you need to know about these powerhouse BFF’s and what they’ll do for your skin.
Hyaluronic acid gives collagen a big, juicy hug.
This powerful duo works together, but individually each has very different benefits. Think of it this way: collagen makes up the building blocks while hyaluronic acid is the magic substance that keeps the mortar between the blocks flexible and supple. Collagen firms the skin, while hyaluronic acid nourishes and hydrates the collagen, keeping it moist and elastic, while promoting the formation of more collagen—increasing firmness and decreasing lines and wrinkles.
Bring on the dream team.
Here’s the takeaway: Hyaluronic acid is great to apply directly the skin and to take internally while collagen—and this is important—should only be ingested, since it won’t penetrate topically.
I’ve experienced incredible results from the following protocol: Add TruMarine Collagen to your morning coffee or tea; it disappears into hot or cold drinks so making it a part of your regular routine is a snap. The Hyaluronic Molecule by Fountain Beauty has a gently sweet ginger flavour that is delicious in green juice or water. Topically, apply hyaluronic-acid rich Awakened Hydrating Serum morning and night and you’ll be well on your way to building more precious, hydrated collagen for your beautiful self!
