This past summer, I was super into hacking my cocktails to provide the most nutrition as possible - basically feeding two birds with one seed. That's when I came up with my collagen margarita. To test it out, I made a punch bowl of it for friends at a party in Portland, and they absolutely loved it. Then, LiveWell Collective published my single-serving version of this skin-supporting cocktail in October 2017 for everybody to enjoy.
So, what's in this skincare cocktail other than collagen? Tripel sec (for taste) and of course, citrus fruits - for taste and for the vitamin C. Why care about Vitamin C? Collagen intermingles with the Vitamin C from the citrus to make the collagen work better! I'm more than sure you'll love this skincare cocktail. So, try it out and check out this excerpt from the article that I wrote for LiveWell Collective:
Have you heard of collagen to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles? I’m sure you have. How about collagen cocktails? A collagen cocktail is a fun way to up your skincare game while having fun with friends! In a study from the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology , researchers concluded that 10g of fish collagen or 10g of porcine collagen taken daily for 12 weeks improved skin hydration and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Collagen powder dissolves easily in liquids and they usually are flavorless. Scroll down for ingredients and instructions for my collagen margarita!
