Collagen and Chocolate


Back from the holidays with  a bump.  Ouch! Too much going out? Too much staying in and eating choc’s?  Too much Happy Christmas?

January is the time for taking stock, resetting the balance with New Years resolutions to detox and eat healthily.  It’s also a time when our skin suffers.  Deep into Winter now we have cold weather outdoors, central heating indoors not to mention the damage Christmas has done.

Fear not, help is at hand in the form of a couple of unsuspecting friends, namely collagen and chocolate.

 When Esthechoc contacted me to say I should eat chocolate every day for great skin, I was amazed.  Yup, it’s true. Cambridge Chocolate Technology has spent ten years developing Esthechoc, chocolate, clinically proven to improve your skin, er hello? whats not to like here? Please check out their website, deliciously surprising.

Next up, Works With Water have launched a Beautify Skin Supplement.  It’s a natural skin food supplement jelly treats to improve your skin.  help: beautify skin is formulated with natural ingredients proven to deliver tangible anti-ageing and skin regenerating benefits.  Contains PravenAGE, a proprietary formula incorporating Hydrolysed Marine Collagen, Resveratrol, Aloe Vera and CoEnzyme Q10 to help nourish your skin from the inside.

Along a similar theme Proto-Col provide aCollagen capsule, if you didn’t know, Collagen is a natural protein that is made up of amino acids – the natural building blocks of our skin. Collagen is found throughout the body – in skin, hair, teeth, muscle, tendon and bone and it helps hold us together.  As we get older we don’t produce nearly as much Collagen, so taking a supplement really helps.

Proto-Col also make a Collagen Facemask, A supremely rich and luxurious moisturising facial treatment containing plant-derived collagen to quench thirsty skin. Ideal for hydrating, and plumping skin.  Ingeniously this product can be used as a facemask or moisturiser.

Finally Organic White Chocolate Revitalising Cream from Zuzka.  This velvety soft light textured cream provides daily moisture & nourishment, increasing the skins elasticity & tone. White chocolate is packed full of antioxidants, vitamins & minerals,  organic orange & frankincense essential oils make this an ultimate revitalising product.

I started with my new Chocolate and Collagen routine over Christmas and already I’ve noticed a difference with visibly less wrinkles.  I think Collagen will remain in my diary for some time to come and I know the Chocolate will stay.  Well if its helping with my wellbeing its a must!

Love DSB X
