The Ultimate Natural Beauty Guide To Healthy Hair, Skin & Nails
Collagen is the most abundant protein present in the human body, found in our hair, skin and nails. It helps minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, keeps your skin looking and feeling plump, helps maintain strength in your nails and promotes thick and luscious hair!
As we age, our body’s ability to produce collagen starts to decrease, and as a result, the skin starts to lose its elasticity. With collagen making up approximately 75% of our skin, we want to continue to top these levels up as best we can for a natural glow from the inside out. Here are some of our fave collagen products along with other essentials for healthy hair, skin and nails!
From ingestible beauty powders to topical creams, you can find the below products and and more over on the GoodnessMe Shop.
