Collagen Shots by Rejuvenated
There’s only one way to find out if something works (and works for you – not other people!) and that’s by trying it, so we did. If you Google “what is collagen?” you get an unappealing biology class type description: “col-la-gen: the main structural protein found in animal connective tissue, yielding gelatin when boiled”. But its potential in the beauty industry is huge – Japan, the USA and France have already cottoned on to collagen, the UK is further behind.
Our skin is made of collagen, so…when collagen production tapers off with age, its shows – one effect is sagging skin. In a 2008 study in Tokyo, for example, 33 women aged 40-60 took 10 g of Hydrolyzed Collagen daily for 2 months showed 91% saw an increase in skin hydration and resilience.
Collagen helps plump, hydrate and soften skin (and as you’re taking it internally that means from your cheeks to the soles of your feet!) and there are various reports that it helps minimise pores although we didn’t notice a difference there. Collagen Shots is £30 and comes in a 30-day foil pack (you take one scoop mixed in water or juice in the evening) and is pleasant tasting – many of the other powders are not.
Verdict? We saw a difference – softer, plumper and, cliched though it may sound, yes, younger-looking skin. If you’re in the mood for a beauty experiment for £1 a day (and collagen’s good for you anyway) you can buy/read about the science here: COLLAGEN-SHOTS.COM
