Boost your health & beauty from the inside out

We’re loving Nutra Organics collagen supplement for an all-out glow.

While we haven’t researched all the collagen supplements on the market (there are too many to count), some of our b clinic staff have started trialling Nutra Organics Collagen Beauty, and we’re so excited about it we wanted to tell you more.

And though supplements are never a substitute for regularly eating whole foods with a healthy balance of macronutrients, plenty of antioxidants and natural anti-inflammatories, there are some benefits to collagen in a supplement form.

 

A few facts about collagen

For those not in the know, your skin is made up of over 75% collagen – and it’s a critical factor in ageing.

But fewer people realise collagen is also essential for gut and digestive health – your personal powerhouse for wellbeing. Studies now show your gut is where your immune system gets its oomph and where over 70% of the happy hormone, serotonin, is made – so it’s important it’s in A1 shape!

Collagen delivers the necessary building blocks to restore and repair your gut lining, keeping your immune system strong and increasing your overall well-being. And, a healthy gut also slows the ageing process!

Collagen starts to degenerate in your mid-20s. Lifestyle and environmental factors can accelerate its loss further, and there’s no easy way to get it back – unless you eat a lot of bones and connective tissue, it’s often not a regular part of your diet.

Collagen supplements can help.

Why we like Nutra Organics Collagen Beauty

Collagen Beauty helps to positively influence skin structures and counteract skin-ageing, improving and smoothing your skin’s appearance from within.

We particularly like it because it contains VERISOL® Bioactive Collagen Peptides (or Hydrolysed Collagen) that, unlike a topical cream treats deep where wrinkles are formed, rather than just the surface of your skin. Clinical studies have found VERISOL® peptides the most effective in stimulating cell regrowth.

Nutra Organic’s blend has been specially crafted with vitamin C, zinc and silica to increase collagen absorption and effectiveness. It’s flavourless and odourless, so it’s super easy to mix into your coffee, yoghurt, soup or smoothies. Plus, being 98% protein, low kilojoule, with no sugar or carbohydrates, it contains only the good stuff for your skin (and gut).

 

What we’ve found.

Those trialling Collagen Beauty at b clinic are reporting that they are starting to see signs of:

  • Noticeably firmer and smoother skin with fewer wrinkles
  • An increase in dermal pro-collagen
  • Reduced cellulite
  • Significant improvements in skin moisture
  • Better gut health.

 

So, if you feel your skin and gut need to get their glow on, it might be time to give collagen supplements a try.

Remember, everybody is unique. If you’re not currently following a balanced diet or don’t see the results you want from supplements, we recommend working with a qualified nutritionist or dietician. We can all do with a little extra love & support now and then xoxo

 

 

 

 

Our top 5 tips to get your look on track for this year’s racing season.

Time flies, doesn’t it? It doesn’t seem that long ago you were celebrating the 2015 Melbourne Cup racing season – and now here you are, turning your attention once again to matching those fiendishly feathery fascinators to your favourite frock.

The key to stunning the crowd at race celebrations is to keep everything looking elegantly simple. And that means you shouldn’t leave all your primping to the last moment – all that perfection takes time, ladies! So here’s our top 5 beauty tips to check off your list:

 

  1. Go Highbrow. Nothing beats a perfectly arched brow to set off your outfit. Book in for a brow sculpting session well in advance, so you can give your brow artist time to work her magic. But if your brows are less than stellar, there’s new hope on the horizon. Feather Touch Brow tattooing helps even those seriously challenged in the brow department can have natural looking, luxurious, and perfectly fleek brows that no one will be able to guess aren’t your own.
  2. Smooth and Erase. For flawless selfies, target those wrinkles now with one of our muscle relaxant treatments. Non-invasive and non-surgical, it’s the ideal way to look younger without going under the knife. Unwanted frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines disappear, leaving your skin silky smooth and the perfect base for an all-day foundation.
  3.  Details Count. Don’t overlook your manicure and pedicure – you don’t want to come to the party dressed to the nines and then realise your nails are chipped and forlorn.
  4. Book a manicure the day before or the morning of the big event. Race day etiquette suggests no super long talons – think a ladylike medium length with square/round tips. Choose a shade that compliments your outfit, or if in doubt, a pretty pastel pink works well with everything. If you’re feeling bold, fire red makes a serious statement.
  5. Get Your Glow On. Give your skin a flattering glow with an all over spray tan a few days before the big day. But don’t go overboard – this is not the venue for dark, heavy fake tans! Remember, the look is Melbourne springtime, so those ladies haven’t seen the sun for very long!
  6. Colour Pops. Complete your race day look with a brand new luxury lipstick in a bold colour – experts predict we’ll be seeing a lot of strong pinks and fuchsias this spring carnival. But it’s all to do with your dress – choose a shade to match or complement what you’re wearing. Don’t forget to prep your lip, because longevity matters when you’re sipping champagne under the marquee. Use a hydrating lip balm, outline your lip with a pencil and don’t forget to follow up your lipstick with a touch of mineral gloss shine. Try Australian-made Issada Cosmetics for a full range of treatment and mineral lipsticks to pamper your pout. And don’t forget to pop your lippy in your purse for touch-ups throughout the day.

 

Just remember the best accessory at the races is feeling confident in how your look – just choose the perfect balance of demure and bold statement and you’ll be on to a winner!
