COLLAGEN— THE SECRET TO WRINKLE-FREE SKIN?!
I’ve always heard/been told that once you hit 25 you need to start incorporating collagen into your daily routine. Our bodies natural collagen production begins to decline and adding it or collage- boosting products can help to keep plump, wrinkle-free skin. I am under 25 but that doesn’t mean that I can't still benefit from collagen products. Collagen What is it: Collagen is a protein found in your body that provides it’s structure including the skin, hair and nails. Collagen decline: Many factors decline collagen production including: •age (typically after 25) •sugar/refined carbs •excess sun exposure •smoking How to boost collagen production: Fortunately there are many ways to boost collagen production. Including foods, supplements, and skin care. This can either be incorporated directly from the source (collagen) or by the collagen-boosting foods. Collagen foods: •bone broth •egg whites •fish •lean meat •spirulina Collagen-boosting foods: •vitamin C; such as citrus fruits, broccoli •zinc; such as certain cereals, breads •manganese; such as leafy green vegetables and teas •copper; such as nuts and shellfish Supplemnets: Supplements are an easy way to incorporate collagen into the body. They can be incorporated into foods or drinks making it practical for everyday use. Some forms of supplements include: •gelatin •collagen pills •collagen peptide/protein powders •marine collagen Skincare: If you are using a skincare product this claims to have pure collagen in it, it may not be as beneficial as you’d like it to be. That is because collagen in it’s pure form may be to hard to penetrate through the skin and will leave you with no benefits. When choosing skincare products for collagen, its best to chose products that claim to boost collagen production. These products will contain ingredients mentioned above such as vitamin-c and even retinols. A product that I use that boosts collagen production with the help of active marine plant extracts is: ELEMIS - Pro-Collagen Marine Cream
Vitamin C for anti aging
Retinol for anti aging
Sensitive skin face creams
Fine lines & wrinkles moisturizers
LaurenOMalleyCollagen is actually too big to be absorbed through your skin- it’s better to eat foods that help with collagen production, or maybe take collagen tablets! (I think those are a thing)

I have purchased several Elemis products before & absolutely love their line. A couple of my favorites are Elemis anti-aging Eye serum and their are marine collagen night cream. I got this day cream through a add on sale with Fab Fit And Fun’d subscription box for just $45.00 it retails for $89.00 at ulta. It also comes with a little white spoon to help you dip the cream out. 🔑 Key Ingredients~ ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼Padina Pavonica~ A brown algae found on the mediterranean coast. It’s known to support the the feeling of hydration. ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼Chlorella~ This green microalgae has been shown to help maintain good skin condition, leaving it feeling firmer and looking healthy. ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼Ginkgo Biloba~ is rich in antioxidants and helps protect the skin from every day stressors.

A small amount goes along way & it just glides across your skin. This luxurious cream quickly absorbs leaving your face feeling Instantly hydrated, glowing and feeling soft like rose petals. One of my biggest concerns at my age is dryness, fine lines and wrinkles. This cream definitely helps give me a youthful appearance, and smooths out my fine lines and wrinkles.

🌞🌞🌞The BEST skin care products for summer are...
I live in a hot and humid place, especially in the summer, my face is really sticky. When I was younger I rarely used face cream in the summer because it was very uncomfortable. But as I got older, I had to use creams to keep my skin stable, so I was looking for a fresher face cream. Recently, a friend recommended the moisturizers of Clarins to me, I was so excited because I finally found the right face cream. I bought CLARINS - Extra-Firming Wrinkle Control Firming Day Rich Cream For Dry Skinand CLARINS - Extra-Firming Wrinkle Control Regenerating Night Cream and use them every day. About the day cream, which impressed me most is the melting, non-greasy, oil-infused texture, this goes on so smoothly and feels so moist, and my skin absorbs it easily. After using it, the skin is not sticky, but feel slippery. I put on my makeup every morning after using the day cream, and it fits better. Moreover, this face cream is very suitable for mature skin. After using it for a while, I found that my wrinkles were less and spots were a little lighter. When it comes to the night one, it is a little more moist than the day cream and it can restore vitality to mature skin. When I'm busy with work or often stay up late, I applied more on my face, the cream was fully absorbed overnight and then my skin always glowed the next day. In addition, this two products are good for sensitive skin, which can effectively relieve facial redness and allergies. The two creams are best used together, after a month with the day and night creams, my skin looks and feels smoother and healthier. The creams will be my first choice for summer. For those of you who like being fresh and are afraid of being sticky, just try it. If you have any questions or suggestions hmu 😘

This is my absolute favourite moisturiser to use when wearing make up. ♥️ lamer- The Moisturising Matte Lotion. MY RESULTS: ♥️ I’ve been using this moisturiser for 9 months now and I’m still on the same bottle, so although it’s expensive I’ve had almost a years use from it. 1 pump pressed between your hands and patted over your face, neck and chest is all that’s needed to provide the benefits. ♥️ I have normal/combo skin but when I wear make up I can lead more towards an oily T Zone for some reason but when using this it acts as the perfect base for make up, it keeps my skin oil free the whole day. ♥️ Normally matte moisturisers don’t provide enough hydration for me and the more I use a moisturiser the more dehydrated my skin becomes, but this doesn’t do that at all, it really works to hydrate your skin, while keeping it matte. ♥️ It’s quite a thin consistency which makes it great for patting into skin rather than rubbing in. I don’t like rubbing creams because it can make my cheeks really red. ♥️ When using this it makes my skin look so flawless it’s like a blurring primer has been added. It feels silky smooth and with each use I found that it reduced the look of fine lines around my eyes. .

BRIGHT BRIGHT BRIGHT
This beautiful jar holds niacinamide, vineferine(more brightening than vitamin c), and white peony. It’s supposed to brighten and perfect the complexion for a radiant glow!! ✨✨ What I noticed immediately was that the smell is so delicately beautiful. They truly made this one smell like a vineyard full of grapes! 🍇🍇 It makes me feel extra classy using it. The texture is thick, but not a stiff thick, it’s still very creamy and soft. You really don’t need much of this beauty to fully cover the face and neck. I have used this at night and I wake up with my skin still feeling amply moisturized and I have more of a glow. I’ll be sure to update closer to a month from now to let y’all know if it really does brighten up the skin!
CAUDALIE-Vinoperfect Brightening Moisturizer with Niacinamide
#mycaudaliegiftedme this beautiful brightening moisturizer. It’s an oil free gel moisturizer but it doesn’t actually feel gel like to me, it looks more like a cream and feels like one too. I absolutely love the texture it feels very rich without being too overpowering. It hydrates skin well and works to brighten and even out skin tone. I don’t really have dark spots I want to lighten so I can’t speak for that but I do think it brightens the skin.

Do you have hidden gems on your skincare stash? I have 3 overnight products that do their magic while I sleep.✨ Today I want to talk about the elemis Pro-Collagen Overnight Matrix 🤩 Due to my hormonal problems, sleeping is an issue for me, I rarely sleep very deeply. A bit annoying when you have an important event the next day and you want to look your best. Thanks to elemis this Overnight moisturiser/treatment comes in handy when I want to look my best, it really replenishes the skin as it claims. Lack of sleep can take away for natural firmness of skin (at least for me), but this ‘gives back’ my firmness, hydration and takes the stressed bits in exchange. Good deal, I’d say! 😄 What’s in it? Microalage (great anti-inflammatory properties), Padina Pavonica, a Mediterranean algae that claims to have anti-ageing benefits (new ingredient to me) and the Drone Peptide Technology ( drone technology is hugely popular in skincare now). You might wonder what a drone technology in skincare is? Well, is basically a delivery system that targets specific skin concerns. In this instance, the Drone Peptide Technology is designed to boost your skin’s natural radiance, target those nasty wrinkles and lines and provide hydration. For best results the cream has to be used for a longer period of time. Will be my go to in for the next week (has been many days prior) as I am off actives (getting ready for holiday). I don’t have wrinkles, but for this particular product, I think it was the first time I have seen 100% positive feedback (tested in vivo). The texture is beautiful, creamy, borderline- gel, light and absorbs completely into the skin. What else can I say other than I absolutely love it? 😄 However this is on the pricer side and definitely something I could not afford to buy on regular basis. But I am happy I was able to try it for myself. Disclaimer: I took the picture a while ago after a few uses, as I like to take pics with ‘fresh’ texture. Product was tested for much longer. Also a little goes long way.
