During my pregnancy I really got the famous “glow”, skin and hair were fabulous, but once my adorable baby was born, due to hormonal changes, lack of sleep etc… my skin became the dullest ever and hair started falling out, I also developed a constant pain in my joints and bones. This is very common postpartum as so many nutrients are pulled from a mother while creating, developing and nourishing a baby.
Collagen is the main structural protein found in all our connective tissues and plays an important role in the replacement of dead skin, hair and nails. As we age collagen production declines.
Most women know about the importance of supplementing vitamins and minerals during pregnancy but not as many carry on after giving birth.
I have decided to trial 30 days of Skinade, a fruit flavoured anti-ageing collagen drink containing hydrolysed marine collagen, Vitamin C, MSM, Vitamin B complex, Omega 3 & 6, L-lysine.
It doesn’t contain bovine or porcine products, hormones, GMOS, alcohol, added sugar, artificial flavours or colours.
The first great thing about this product is the flavour, is a mix of peach and mangosteen, I find it delicious and very refreshing.
It comes in bottled version or in a travel sachet which is cool, especially as a new mum having to carry everything but the kitchen sink with you every time you leave the house.
All great … but what results did I get? You may ask!
The elasticity and luminosity of my skin have improved, my nails are very strong, and my hair looks and feels healthier, although it is still falling out but in less quantity.
The greatest result has been the dramatic reduction of joints and bones pain, I am actually amazed by it, also I have noticed a boost in my energy levels and metabolism.
I have not been taking any other supplement during the 30 days and I must say I am pleasantly surprised by how quickly I have been able to see changes in my overall wellbeing.
I definitely intend to carry on drinking Skinade and I am looking forward to see how much better it can get!
