I’ve been looking for a product like this for a while. Ultimately no matter what creams you put on your skin, if you are failing to nourish your skin from the inside, you won’t be able to achieve beautiful clear skin. I’m a firm believer in getting good sleep, as this contributes massively to your skin quality and appearance. Have a think about your nutrition too if your skin is looking lackluster and dull despite topical treatments.

Natural Meds have attended to the nutrition aspect of beauty in these tailored skin supplements. They include collagen at high dose, which your body will be able to use as a building block for repair and conditioning of the skin (and many other internal structures too!). Biotin is included, which is a key nutrient for long healthy hair and nails and vitamin C, hyaluronic acid and alpha lipoic acid work in concert to provide anti-oxidant and hydrating effects to the skin.

Cleverly, they have two different formats for getting those lovely ingredients into you – if you like cranberry flavour, there is a powdered drink mix, which you make up with water. If you are someone who prefers tablets, they have those too. The cranberry drink, called ‘Beauty Infusion’ gives 30 daily infusions of one scoop. The tablets are recommended to be taken 3 tablets twice daily, to achieve a total of 3000mg of Neocell collagen daily, and there are 150 tablets per bottle.

Neocell Collagen Beauty Builder tablets are available for $51.10 and the Neocell Beauty Infusion collagen drink mix for $84.90. Visit www.naturalmeds.co.nz to find your nearest stockist.
