Editor’s Pick II for October: Belo Nutraceuticals Collagen Powder Drink

Belo Nutra Collagen Powder

One really useful thought that I was able to pick up was from Dra. Vicky Belo, that youthful skin is like a brand new sofa. "When you sit on one that's brand new, you are pushed back up. In an old sofa, you sink down."

Skin's just like that. Young skin is really firm, bouncy and supple, and as our skin begins its wear and tear as we age, it loses its elasticity. The key word in this discussion is collagen, that is the "mattress" of our skin. Collagen is the support structure of our skin, making skin plump, youthful, elastic, and supple. Check out children's skin - that's what you call collagen-filled skin.

Collagen is something that we lose as we age. Our collagen production decreases as we age, as we undergo wear and tear. Other factors that causes the decline of collagen would be stress, sun exposure, and other negative factors. From age 0-40, collagen in our skin decreases by about 20-40%. From 40-60, we lose another 40-50%. Oh, I certainly agree with that happening on my skin. As I checked my Facebook photos from teenage years ( hey, Facebook timeline can be really useful in this case hahaha! ), my skin was more plump and supple. I saw the progression with my skin. I'm in my mid-thirties now, and my skin is not as plump as before. It's not gaunt and sorry yet, but I am now seeing some lines on my face, and though I think I still look okay, I would want something to prevent my skin from its deterioration from progressing. I know we can't keep on staying young forever, but we can try to retard and delay aging as much as we can - we're lucky because we have great technology right now in the beauty industry that would just help do that.

As there is the abundance of collagen drinks abroad, mainly in the Southeast Asian countries, it's about time that we have something of our own! Introducing, the new Belo Nutraceuticals Collagen Powder Drink.

Belo Nutraceuticals Collagen Powder Drink is infused with Hyaluronic Acid.This increases efficacy, as hyaluronic acid is a moisture magnet that improves skin hydration. As a matter of fact, hyaluronic acid has the unique ability to absorb 1,000 times its weight in water molecules. It has a neutral flavor and is fast dissolving. One sachet a day dissolved in your favorite hot and cold beverage, be it coffee or tea, milk or yogurt, is all you need to help keep your skin hydrated and moisturized, restoring its health and suppleness, while minimizing fine lines and sagging. At the age of 40 though, it is best to take two sachets a day. Its breakthrough patented formulation has undergone extensive study to ensure its quality, safety and efficacy. You can expect to see a visible difference in just two weeks.

I was quite curious and wanted to see the effect on myself, so I decided to try it out and include this in my daily routine. Belo Collagen Powder Drink is quite handy that they come in sachets, that we can dilute the powder form in hot or cold drinks anytime we want. For those who are 40 and above, two sachets are recommended everyday, while for those 40 and below, 1 sachet would be enough.

Good thing that my daily breakfast would be a tall glass of Milo drink. I don't usually put in milk anymore, so I put in a sachet's worth of powder in my drink. Lo and behold, my milo drink tasted that it had some milk. It tasted great ( and I'm pretty much particular on how a product tastes ), so I decided to pursue this routine for everyday!

As I am now abroad, I don't have my milo with me, so I drink Belo Nutraceuticals Powder Drink, diluting it with a glass of water. Now, without any flavored drink, it just tastes like diluted milk ( though not as rich as real powder milk ) in a glass, and that's perfectly fine, as it tastes good!

It's been a few days since I've tried this, and so far, I'm devoted to this routine. I'm quite excited to see long-term results, but I really need to be patient and continue taking this religiously. Stopping and then continuing again would only negate my efforts, needing to start again, so I better get this right! Nonetheless, I'm getting good nutrients in my body. After all, beauty must not only come from the outside, but also on the inside - may it be biologically, or figuratively.

I hope you're enjoying your Belo Nutraceuticals Collagen Powder Drink samples!
