Skinade

I heard about skinade years ago and finally decided to try it last summer. While the cost may deter you ($150 for 30 days), what's in it and how it delivers goodness into your body may make the cost a mute point.


I have always been a fan of the right kind of vitamins and a delivery system that counts. As a liquid supplement, skinade's innovative formulation is highly bio-available, meaning the body can absorb and make use of a higher proportion of the active nutrients. That's important, as skinade's active ingredients are 100% in a solution that allows for a 95% absorption rate.


The class-leading, 2kDal patented hydrolysed marine collagen peptides used in skinade trigger fibroblast proliferation (firing up our natural collagen production) leading to increased skin thickness and therefore a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles. The hydrolysed marine collagen peptides also trigger the HAS2 receptors in the dermis responsible for the production of hyaluronic acid resulting in improved skin hydration.

Not only have I noticed a difference in my skin (tone, texture and lessening of wrinkles around my eyes), my nails have benefited greatly. Besides, the whole inside out concept is right up my alley — it's what I preach!


You'll also be happy to hear that skinade does not contain bovine or porcine products, hormones, genetically modified organisms (gmos), alcohol, added sugar, artificial flavours or artificial colors.

skinade is also free of lactose, gluten and dairy. And, it comes with an expiration date. It does not sit on the shelf forever.


Look for skinade in your town. You may discover that your dermatologist carries it.
