Collagen Cream  

Thanks to our never ending quest to beat the aging process, the beauty industry turns over billions of dollars every year. We buy every new product that comes on the market which promises to eliminate lines and wrinkles and make us look "20 years younger," but which products actually work?

Collagen is a natural protein that is present in all mammals. It is collagen that gives our skin elasticity and gives us our youthful glow. Collagen naturally depletes over time, so our skin, particularly on our face, loosens and loses its bloom and freshness.

Lines and wrinkles appear and we run straight to the drug store to see what we can do about our signs of aging. One of the best things you can buy to beat the lines and wrinkles at their own game is collagen cream. This works to replace the collagen we have lost and give us back the skin we once had. Now as great as collagen cream is, it will work even better if you do a few other things as well.

To begin, cut out cigarettes and alcohol. These are terrible for aging skin quickly and no cream can counteract the damage they cause on a daily basis. Following a low fat diet and drinking plenty of water will hydrate your skin from the inside and work alongside the cream to give optimum results.

Getting older can be tough, and age reversal isn't an option, so the best we can do is give ourselves the opportunity to look younger than we really are. Adopting a healthy lifestyle will make us feel better within, while collagen supplements can give us that look of youth which is priceless. They say aging is a state of mind and if you feel young you will look young.

We all want to look 10 years younger than we really are, and by combining health, vitality and collagen cream we can knock years off our biological age and wind the clock back a decade or so. There is no reason for any healthy person to look older than they are.

Don't let laziness and a poor lifestyle be your excuse for looking older than you do and ultimately, the choice is yours. Look and feel 50 when we are 40, or look and feel 40 when we are 50? It really is a no-brainer. It's never too late to start winding back that clock. Deep set wrinkles and lines may not be completely eradicated but the effects of a healthy lifestyle combined with a decent cream can be staggering.

The lines will be a lot less obvious as your skin will be tighter, softer and have that special glow. You all know how to look younger now, so go do it!

Vitamin E & Aloe Vera  

Aloe Vera is a rich source of over two hundred naturally-occurring nutritional substances, well-known for being a great skin care remedy for minor burns and skin irritation, This desert plant is not only medicinally beneficial, but it is an optimal cosmetic ingredient when used in skin care products or on its own.

Vitamin E’s antioxidants as a weapon against the signs of aging. Use vitamin E to help your body fix scars and burns.

Pro Vitality with Vitamins  

Collagen is a protein in your body that makes up about 80 percent of your skin.

Our Collagen Liquid Pro Vitality is made with vitamin C and Proteins, which is unique multifunctional products helping tendons, ligaments, skin, hair, nails, bones, teeth, energy levels and fat loss.

Collagen is a primary connective tissue protein in the body and the name comes from the Greek word ‘Kolla’ for glue.

We need collagen to keep us young, vital, healthy and fit. Unfortunately we lose roughly 1% of our body’s natural collagen each year; collagen restores the skin’s youthful texture and resiliency. It repairs tissues and blood vessels, helping with flexibility and strength.

Can Our Collagen Liquid also help with weight loss?

The Collagen liquid can help burn fat while the body is in the first stage of sleep! If our collagen liquid is taken as directed (15 ml per day just before bed and at least 3 hours after eating) over 4 to 16 weeks there have been noticeable results, with people who have use it saying that their clothes fit better and they appear leaner and trimmer.

Collagen Liquid works by actively repairing tissues while you sleep, a process which uses energy and thus burns fat.
