Product Hype: Bend Beauty Marine Collagen + Co-Factors Powder

Being naturally handsome actually takes a little effort. Particularly when your overexposure to UV light is a given. After all who hasn’t spent time under the mercury vapor lighting found in sporting stadiums and school gyms or beneath the halogen, fluorescent and incandescent lights in your home or office? Sure, these light bulbs emit a small amount of UV radiation, but it’s there. Factor in the great outdoors where the sun’s UVA and UVB light is unavoidable and your overexposure is years-long with health risks that can include sunburns, premature aging, wrinkles and sun spots and, unfortunately, melanomas. So do your part.

Passionate about skin, Nova Scotia health and beauty brand Bend Beauty has been doing theirs for the past couple of years. The Canadian company has taken a pro-active approach to skin health by creating a line of ingestible products to benefit your outer layer from head to toe and from the inside outwards. With five skin renewing, protecting and anti-aging products in the line-up, inclusive of mint flavoured soft gel capsules and a grapefruit and tangerine tasting liquid formula to reduce skin sensitivities while adding a dewy glow, the Marine Collagen + Co-Factors coconut-flavoured powder is the obvious go-to item.

Specifically crafted to promote collagen production—the protein that creates a scaffolding-like protective barrier to your skin and sadly, diminishes with age—one spoonful of the powder swirled into a glass of water and drank each day is said to rejuvenate the bounce, texture, firm and supple quality of your skin within days. Made from fish-derived collagen peptides along with vitamin C and silicon to support and promote collagen production, regular ingestion of the organic beverage results in a more youthful looking and feeling complexion. Plus the natural coconut flavour (the powder is also available in strawberry and non-flavoured options) will satiate your sweet tooth with just one sip.

Bend Beauty Marine Collagen + Co-Factors Powder in Coconut Flavour, $52 for 146 grams, is available online at www.shop.bendbeauty.com.
