Sleep, stress, exercise and hydration all affect the appearance of our skin and the biggest culprits are the sun, pollution and smoking. All these factors disrupt the natural functioning of the skin through complex processes that, over time, cause the breakdown of key structural components of the skin. Taking a more comprehensive approach to skin by working from the ‘inside out’ will minimize damage, creating the foundations for a radiant complexion long-term. Understanding the complexities of how our skin works and more importantly, how external and internal factors affect the ageing process, is at the heart of the skinade brand.
Skinade is a multi-award winning, natural peach and mangosteen flavored anti-ageing collagen drink that aims to improve the way your skin looks and feels in as little as 30 days. It has been developed by leading UK scientists as a drink that promotes better looking skin from the inside out.
So how does it work? Skinade is carefully formulated with the optimum ratio of liquid to active ingredients and contains key nutrients that are essential in the healthy production of collagen and the optimisation of skin function. Skinade increases collagen in the bloodstream by adding 7000mg of hydrolysed marine collagen (smallest molecular weight on the market of 2kDal) from each bottle (daily dose), a process that will trigger a ‘wound healing’ response that will activate our collagen production by firing up the fibroblasts, our own collagen factories. As a side benefit, increasing collagen in the bloodstream also increases the body’s production of hyaluronic acid, responsible for optimizing skin hydration and elastin, for a firmer more dewy and fresh complexion.
Why it is a drink? It is scientifically proven that liquids are much more readily absorbed than solids. With a liquid, the body does not need hours to break down the solid consistency of a tablet or powder suspended in water, meaning that the body can make the most of the precious ingredients. Skinade is the only skincare drink on the market completely in solution (it takes 12 hours to create each bottle of skinade), it works isotonically – by-passing the digestive system to enter the bloodstream intact – a process that is key to the results we have seen.
Does it actually work? Average results against placebo showed: +25.5% in collagen density +34% in skin hydration +28% in skin elasticity.
Skinade is sold in courses of 150ml ‘ready-to-drink’ bottles or 15ml travel sachets that you simply dilute in water.
