Beauty is an Expression of Health - with NeoCell
Beauty is an expression of health... What does this statement mean to you? If you were required to give your personal view point on beauty, what would it be?
When most people think of "beauty" their mind automatically thinks of a persons physical appearance. As such, what most of us tend to do is apply night creams, facial serums, all types of facial masks, and any other variety of topical products we can get our hands on. This does help, I am not here to tell you that it doesn't, because trust me when I say, I have a good share of topical creams in my beauty cabinet that I use on a daily basis (mornings and at night).
But thinking about this a little more in depth, wouldn't it be easier if we could find a way to take care of our inner layers of skin first? I mean, think about it. Applying creams and serums only takes care of the outer layers of our skin. The ingredients in the creams can only do so much, so what about the inner layers of our skin? How could we take care of our skin from the inside out?
The easiest answer would come to my mind : vitamins or some type of supplement that could provide our bodies with an added dose of healthy nutrients that our skin needs.
That's where NeoCell comes into the picture.
A little while ago, I was approached by a representative from NeoCell inquiring if I would like to try and review two of their dietary supplement products that are part of a beauty regimen system that helps in achieving a healthier, youthful and stronger skin from the inside out.
Here are the two products I received from NeoCell:
Starting with the Super Collagen (Type 1&3) - collagen is known to help minimize the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines in the skin. Some people rather get collagen injected into their skin directly, however I would rather drink it. The Super Collagen is in a powder. The powder odorless, and has no added flavors to it. The powder is easy to take - all I do is measure my daily dosage with the little spoon that comes inside the jar, placing the powder into a small bowl. Then all I do is add a few tablespoons of juice to the powder and mix it. Once powder has dissolved in the juice, I then add it to about 6oz of juice and drink it. According to the directions on the jar, to obtain the best results it's better to drink this on an empty stomach, 30 min before eating any food. So, what I do is take this first thing in morning.
Next, is the Hyaluronic Acid blueberry liquid - Don't be afraid of the word acid - its not what you're thinking! We all have heard about the many benefits of consuming fruits and green tea and that is exactly what this liquid is: "a natural dietary supplement enhanced with antioxidant powder from pomegranate, green tea and blueberry..." The suggested daily dosage is one tablespoon. I usually take this right after drinking my collagen juice. This blueberry liquid is very tasty. If it were left to me, I would drink an entire bottle everyday instead of just a tablespoon!
I have been taking both of these products for a few weeks and can see the small differences. My skin feels more supple and doesn't seem dry or ashy. I can also see a difference in my hair. My hair has thinned out over the years due to excessive coloring, but now it looks healthier. The first thing I also noticed was that when combing my hair there were less strands on the comb. I was very pleased when I noticed that! I have to admit that I am both excited and anxious to see the entire results of taking these two products will have on my skin and hair.
However, both NeoCell and I would like to give our readers a chance to experience the benefits of their Super Collagen Type 1 & 2 and the Hyaluronic Acid blueberry liquid by offering a giveaway where one of our readers will receive a package containing the same two products that were sent to me for this review.
