A dermatologist on YouTube keeps reminding her subscribers that their age is not their skin type. Though that may be true, it is also a fact that women’s production of skin collagen decreases as they age. Women, like me in my 40s are prone to dull, dry, and aging skin. I have been seeing the effects of the long-time neglect of my skin in my 20s when I reached my late 30s. There had been times when my lady friends recommended taking collagen orally. However, it was only this year that I finally accepted that I needed supplements for my skin. My recent discovery is SKJN Collagen and its latest combo, Collacenta.
SKJN Collagen Microtablets are Collagen Peptides that are made up of 100% pure Japanese collagen. These are recommended for people who prefer oral collagen tablets but prefer small and easy-to-swallow.
This oral collagen aims to help with anti-aging and skin brightening. My favorite benefit it gives is improving skin firmness and elasticity. For my age, it helps in the reduction of stretchmarks, fine lines, and wrinkles.
According to their website, the other benefits of SKJN Collagen are:
- Diminishes skin discoloration
- good for hair, nails, joints, and ligaments
- improves wound healing including acne and pimple marks
- boosts the immune system
- Stabilize blood sugar
How to Take the Microtablets
For best results, it is recommended to take 6 microtablets daily, taking it all at once or in divided doses.
Since I do intermittent fasting, I take 2 collagen microtablets during lunchtime, before my first meal. And then 1 collagen microtablet before bedtime.
SKJN 5Point Placenta
The SKJN 5Point Placenta is in capsule form that helps in whitening, cell renewal, and moisturizing. This is a great option for those who are looking for a 5-in-1 wellness solution.
Here are the active ingredients in each capsule:
- Marine Placenta (skin whitening & brightening)
- Fish Collagen (skin renewal)
- Vitamin C (immunity booster)
- Hyaluronic Acid (moisturizing)
- Alpha-lipoic Acid (aids in weight loss)
How to Take the Capsules
Take 1-2 capsules per day anytime; can be taken before or after meals.
I take the placenta capsule before my first meal during lunchtime, and then another capsule before sleeping.
Using the Collacenta Combo, initial effects may show as early as 2 days to 2 weeks. As of writing, I have been taking this combo for a week and have seen some changes in my skin. Even with little sleep, it looks less dull than before taking these. I am hoping to see more visible results after another week.
I am grateful to have found a cost-effective collagen option.
