When Is The Right Time To Start Drinking Collagen? | Clozette


There’s a popular saying that goes, “Asian don’t raisin.” It pertains to how most Asians don’t seem to age fast. But, surprise! Contrary to popular belief, ageing starts even before you hit the big 3-O. Once you turn 20, your skin’s collagen will deplete at least 1% yearly. This causes the skin to sag and wrinkles to form. However, there are ways to counter it — the most obvious one that must be addressed? Getting your skin to produce more collagen. But how and when do we do that?

The answer is easy: N-O-W. Before you see the common signs of ageing such as fine lines, deep forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet around the eyes, dark spots, uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation and sagging, start doing measures to keep your skin’s radiance and youth — and one of them is to drink up — with a reliable collagen drink, that is. Adding a product packed with collagen to your routine is the simplest way to do this. If you haven’t yet, make sure to include the Swisse Ultiboost Golden Collagen Blood Orange Liquid in your daily regimen.



Swisse Ultiboost Golden Collagen Blood Orange Liquid

The Swisse Ultiboost Golden Collagen Blood Orange Liquid is loaded with a remarkable 5,100mg of clinically proven, low molecular weight hydrolysed collagen that’s easily absorbed and distributed in the body, which has been shown to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and improve skin elasticity in as fast as four weeks*. Plus, it’s made with blood oranges harvested all the way from Mount Etna in Sicily, Italy. Unlike oranges, these blood oranges are redder in colour because they not only contain vitamin C but also anthocyanin, an antioxidant that’s been proven to protect your skin from free radicals that damage cells. The antioxidants also help keep your skin glowing!


The Swisse Ultiboost Golden Collagen Blood Orange Liquid fits your lifestyle

The Swisse Ultiboost Golden Collagen Blood Orange Liquid is super easy to include in your daily groove, too. It’s packaged in a one-day formula that’s convenient to take with you and consume as you wish. And in case you’re wondering about its sugar and fat content… you can take it guilt-free too because it’s made with natural ingredients that are proven safe for you and it does not contain any fat. Plus, you also have the liberty to drink it as it is or mix it with water depending on your liking. Think of it as oh-so-delicious youth in a bottle!

*The testing was based on the raw material used in the drink. The claim is based on two test results on 46 and 57 healthy females. First is the “Oral Supplementation of Specific Collagen Peptides Has Beneficial Effects on Human Skin Physiology: A Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study” by Proksh E., Segger D., Degwert J., Schunck M., Zague V., Oesser S. Skin Pharmacol Physiology, August 2013. Second is the “Oral Intake of Specific Bioactive Collagen Peptides Reduces Skin Wrinkles and Increases Dermal Matrix Synthesis” by Proksch E., Schunck M., Zague V., Segger D., Degwert J., Oesser S. Skin Pharmacol Physiology, December 2013. For reference only. Individual results may vary.
