No, don’t worry. I haven’t turned into an alcoholic. I am downing shots, but the shots I’m referring to is the Laneige Collagen Drink. If I want my #nomakeupselfie hashtag to appear more often, then I’ll need all the help I can get.
Hydrated, healthy skin doesn’t come easy, especially not with ageing working against me. Did you know that collagen starts to degrade after the age of 25? Thanks a lot – I’m 27 this year and am way behind on the collagen game.
And it’s not just for pure vanity’s sake that I’m doing this. Collagen isn’t just holding your skin together, or giving it its bounce. It is also essential for healthy bones, hair and nails, and also ensures that your joints stay protected and lubricated. That’s why I’m making it a point to up my collagen levels – no one wants squeaky joints! And I’ll gladly accept extra help from Laneige Collagen Drink. The 30ml bottle contains 5000mg of fish collagen peptides from Tilapia fish, and that amount will replenish whatever is lost from the body daily. It also contains vitamin C – one of the more crucial vitamins that help the body produce more collagen.
The 30ml bottle makes it easy to down a serving just before breakfast, but if you feel fancy, you could also mix it into your fruit juices or sparkling water. But the best part is the fact that it’s free from any artificial colouring, preservatives and sugar. That’s right – we’ll say that again. Free from sugar. So you don’t have to feel guilty for downing something as delicious as this early in the morning.
Laneige Collagen Drink retails at $52 for 10 bottles and will be available from March 31, 2015 at all Laneige boutiques.
