Going to have some real talk with y’all today! Becoming a Mom has definitely changed my life for the better and in so many ways, but it hasn’t always been the best for my skin or hair. After having Bear, my hair fell out for over a year. When I was pregnant with Boone, the skin on my face was flaking off, it was was so dry. I knew months ago that I wanted to take better care of myself after having a baby but didn’t really know how to help these things, until I attended an event this summer that opened my eyes to something I hadn’t ever tried: NeoCell Collagen.
Since I’m breastfeeding, I’m always weary of what I put in my body. I was excited to learn that NeoCell Collagen is completely safe while breastfeeding, and the benefits for skin, hair, and nails are amazing. I’ve been using Neocell daily for 4 months now and can’t believe the results- my hair feels fuller than ever, my skin is hydrated and clear (despite a major lack of sleep!), and my nails are stronger than they’ve been in years. Talking more about how I take NeoCell and it’s benefits below!
You may be wondering what exactly this product is, so let me explain that first.
What is NeoCell Collagen?
NeoCell Super Collagen Powder is the most awarded line of collagen supplements, packed with essential nutrients to maintain strength and flexibility. Taking collagen has been clinically shown to help the body in the formation of healthy collagen leading to healthier, more flexible bones, hydrated skin, and minimized lines and wrinkles. NeoCell has a new flavor, Berry Lemon flavored Super Collagen Powder, that is a quick dissolving powder and can be mixed in teas, smoothies, cocktails and juices. NeoCell Super Collagen powder is non-GMO, gluten free, soy free, and paleo friendly, as well.
How do you take it?
Several ways! Prior to the new Berry Lemon flavor coming out, I would mix Super Collagen Powder into just about anything (and still do). My morning coffee or a batch of blueberry muffins are my favorite ways to get my collagen- probably because those are my two favorite things to put in my mouth :). Now I’ll put the Berry Lemon flavor into smoothies or my favorite this time of year, hot tea. I think it would also be a yummy addition to my blueberry muffins! For me, taking NeoCell is all about self-care and taking care of my body. It makes me feel good to be doing something that has so many positive effects on my body, especially because I don’t really have the time to work-out or get facials weekly. Taking NeoCell allows me to do something good for myself and it’s so easy- I can’t believe I didn’t start taking it sooner.
During the holidays, it’s easy to get caught up in taking care of others. That is, after all, what the season is all about: giving. But it’s also important to remember that taking care of yourself helps you take better care of others. If doing something as simple as adding NeoCell Collagen to my nightly tea helps my skin, hair, and nails immensely, I’m going to do it. I’m not one to take products unless I absolutely have to, but I feel good about making the choice to better myself and my hair especially is thanking me. Now if only NeoCell could actually tame this mane for me…we’d really be in business.
What are you doing to take care of yourself this holiday season? I encourage you to take a little time for yourself this week whether it’s getting a mani or having your morning coffee in peace- you deserve it!
