1. Use an SPF
Ninety percent of fine lines are caused by sun exposure, which makes sunscreen the ultimate ingredient for younger-looking skin. Use an SPF 30 or higher daily. Don't forget sunscreen on your ears, hairline, neck, hands, and chest.
2. Be consistent
Set time aside in your schedule to set a beauty health routine that is simple to follow, realistic and able to be incorporated into your routine. The key is to have a daily routine that is able to meet your skin needs but is also easily able to be packed away in a small makeup bag to go on holiday to the beach or to the gym. Once or twice a week build in time to dedicate to your skin care a nourishing treat such as a treatment, mask and exfoliant.
3. Remember to exfoliate
As we age, the process of cell regeneration slows down. This means that the body is slower to shed skin cells and generate new ones. When old skin cells start to pile up on the surface of the skin, it can leave skin looking dull, rough, and dry. Furthermore, the build-up of dead skin cells can result in excess oil and clogged pores, leading to blemishes and acne.
Proper exfoliation removes the barrier of dead skin cells clogging the skin and uncovers fresh new cells below. This opens the way for moisturizing products to penetrate more deeply into the skin, which makes them more effective. In short, a regular exfoliating routine (2-3 times a week) will leave your skin looking fresh and healthy.
4. Take a collagen supplement
Your body produces less collagen as you get older, which results in fine lines and wrinkles. Taking collagen orally can improve skin elasticity, reduce wrinkles, and increase skin moisture. To boost your collagen stores, we recommend taking our 5g of our Nutraviva Marine Collagen daily. Check out some of our favourite skin-boosting collagen recipes:

The New Year period is a fantastic opportunity that we can all take to reflect upon the healthy living choices we make in our daily lives and how we can make informed, positive health choices in the future to improve overall quality of life. However, I feel we can all probably think of a time that health 'resolutions' and the well-intentioned goals that we set have been unsustainable for a range of reasons. Too often we find we are unintentionally setting ourselves up for failure…
Collagen is made up of 18 amino acids and is the most abundant protein in our body, making up around 30% of total human protein content. It is essential as it helps build strong fibres and connective tissue in our bodies. For this reason, collagen is commonly referred to as the ‘glue’ holding the body together as it ensures the integrity, elasticity and regeneration of our connective tissues.
