What’s something I can do to improve my hair, skin and nails?

If you’re anything like me, you’re continually looking for quick fixes to improve your skin, hair and nails. Something that won’t be such a massive effort and something that won’t cost as much as plastic surgery, indulgent hair treatments or constant salon trips. And you also don’t want to add too much to your already exhausting beauty routine, because you have a life and would rather leave time to watch The Bachelorette. SAME. So what else can you do to improve your hair, skin and nails? You can use a little thing called ProPlenish.

ProPlenish is an innovative Australian health and beauty supplement that naturally replenishes the body’s collagen levels from within, addressing your hair, skin, nails, hydration and muscles. Collagen is naturally occurring and the most abundant protein in the body – it keeps us plump, fresh and young. Then, as if ageing isn’t difficult enough, those naturally occurring collagen levels start decreasing, thus our hair becomes thinner, our skin loses elasticity, our nails become weaker and we can’t retain moisture like we used to. So you want collagen and you want it in spades. ProPlenish sources pure marine collagen, containing unique amino acids found in the ocean that is made up of complex nutrients that allow the body to maintain a natural glow and fight those decreasing collagen levels.

Proudly made in Australia – 100% natural and free of fat, carbs, sugar, dairy, lactose, soy, wheat and gluten, containing no artificial, colours, flavours, additives or preservatives, ProPlenish is odourless and blends clear into liquids for maximum effect and minimal fuss. I’ve been enjoying the citrus flavoured ProPlenish mixed in with hot water in replacement of a tea, as it basically tastes like lemon and hot water with the added benefits of collagen replacing the humble lemon lacks. The directions are as follows:

1-3 Sachets/scoops per day. Mix into water, smoothies, juices or yoghurt. ProPlenish Marine Collagen is heat stable so can also be added to hot drinks or food such as tea, coffee or soups.

Recommended dosage
Like any supplement ProPlenish Marine Collagen needs to be taken daily for best results.

1 sachet/scoop per day
For the maintenance of healthy skin, hair, nails and muscles.

2 sachets/scoops per day
To combat wrinkles, weak nails, fine hair and aid in lean muscle tone.

3 sachets/scoops per day
To address moderate to severe wrinkles and ageing, weak and brittle nails and very fine hair. Recommended for those wanting to use ProPlenish Marine Collagen as a workout supplement for lean muscle tone and definition.

The research is fascinating, which you can read here, with my takeaway point being that over two months of daily consumption, ProPlenish increased skin’s hydration and resilience by 91%. Another brilliant point, is it’s for EVERYONE – your collagen levels start decreasing in your early twenties and it’s a slippery slope from there (a slope I am desperately trying to make my way up from) so it’s difficult to find an excuse NOT to add this little winner into your daily routine.

You can buy a variety of sachets or loose powers from their site, or even opt for a monthly subscription if you’d fallen that far in love. I’ve certainly noticed my hair is feeling much thicker (as I’ve been told in the past – I have thin hair but plenty of it, which I feel is quite the backhanded compliment) and I’m pretty happy with the look and feel of my skin, which says a lot coming from someone who is obsessed with the look and feel of her skin. If you’re going to drink water everyday anyway, why not boost it up to improve your hair, skin and nails? Easiest decision I’ve made in a while.
