Beauty from the inside out: The benefits of Inner Beauty Collagen

Beauty from the inside out: The benefits of Inner Beauty Collagen










Beauty from the inside out: The benefits of Inner Beauty Collagen



They say it’s the beauty on the inside that counts, but what if you could bring out your inner glow with a simple glass of water? Young Living’s new Inner Beauty Collagen maximizes the appearance of youthful-looking skin by delivering high-quality collagen to the body. A simple powder you can mix into your glass of water, this new skin care staple goes down easy! Show off that youthful glow everywhere you go with Inner Beauty Collagen.


What makes Inner Beauty Collagen different?

Like all Young Living products, we source only the highest-quality ingredients to ensure a clean and natural experience for both you and Mother Earth.

Young Living’s Inner Beauty Collagen contains five grams of premium marine collagen per serving. By utilizing collagen, ceramides, biotin, hyaluronic acid, and antioxidants, this natural formula enhances beauty without compromising your standards.

Inner Beauty Collagen is made up of type 1 marine collagen, a highly soluble form of bioavailable type 1 collagen sourced from sustainable fish scales and skin. There are no harsh chemicals or solvents used in the sourcing of our collagen, and we make sure to use traceable fish products that would have otherwise been discarded. The end result is an odorless, tasteless collagen that easily dissolves in water.

In addition to type 1 marine collagen, we also use peach ceramide to provide hydration to the skin and decrease dryness. Our peach ceramide is naturally derived from Japanese peaches to help promote smooth and radiant skin.

What else can you find in Inner Beauty Collagen? We’ve squeezed in some tapioca fiber to support healthy skin by balancing the gut microbiome, a little superoxide dismutase (SOD) for antioxidant enzymes, and hyaluronic acid to support skin hydration and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. To top it all off, there’s also a dash of Vanilla planifolia oil included. In the end, you have a gluten-free, non-GMO, keto-friendly formula that contains no sugars, artificial colors, flavors, or sweeteners.

Marine collagen benefits 

So what is marine collagen, and why did we choose fish rather than other sources? Marine collagen is a type 1 collagen that is sourced sustainably and without a negative impact on the environment.
Type 1 collagen is the most common type of collagen found in the human body and plays an important role in bone, skin, and connective tissue. Collagen is naturally produced by the human body, except this ability starts to decrease around the age of 30, which is why collagen supplementation has become such a fan favorite for skin care enthusiasts!

Marine collagen also:
  • Has a better amino acid profile than other types of collagen
  • Is absorbed better by the body
  • Is easier to digest
  • Has a high concentration of glycine, proline, and hydroxyproline, which are the primary agents responsible for stimulating cell regeneration in the skin, hair, and nails

Benefits of Inner Beauty Collagen 

With the highest-quality skin-loving ingredients out there, Inner Beauty Collagen will have you glowing from the inside out in no time—as little as three weeks, actually! You’ll discover additional benefits, such as:
  • Maintaining optimal hydration levels in the cells to reduce the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles
  • Providing hydration to the skin to reduce dryness
  • Improved smoothness and elasticity
  • Support for healthy skin by balancing the gut microbiome
  • Vitamin C and zinc, which support collagen synthesis for glowing skin

How to use Inner Beauty Collagen 

Inner Beauty Collagen is odorless and flavorless, so you can simply mix it into any beverage of your choice. Add one scoop of Inner Beauty Collagen to 4–8 ounces of liquid and repeat daily. Pair it with your morning tea, your afternoon NingXia Red®, or as part of your post-workout smoothie. Either way, your inner glow will be ready to shine!
