As we age, collagen levels in our skin continually dip as its ability to synthesize new collagen begins to diminish. Environmental and lifestyle factors such as ultraviolet (UV) rays, stress, and smoking further accelerate the loss of collagen. In order to fend off the visual signs of aging, it is necessary to not only replenish lost collagen, but also prevent further collagen degradation in the skin from occurring.
Inspired by this insight, BRAND’S InnerShine developed RubySignature, a formulation designed specifically to challenge the existing paradigm in anti-aging skin care.
Specially formulated for Asian skin, the new RubyCollagen Essence range promises to reverse your skin age and enjoy more supple, vibrant skin in just 6 weeks with nature’s best-kept anti-aging secret. The latest addition to the BRAND’S InnerShine portfolio of oral supplements that promotes beauty from within, the RubyCollagen Essence lineup marks a significant milestone as the company’s first dedicated anti-aging supplement series and opens up a new dimension in the world of anti-aging skin care.
Most of us rely on application of creams and gels but these products are usually only beneficial to the epidermis layer of our skin.
Just like how we want to have good skin so that our cosmetics go on (and stay on!) easier, we have to take care of our dermis layer too. That’s the thick layer of living tissue that forms the true skin. It contains collagen and other important proteins that will shape how the visible part of your skin will look like.
The replenishment of collagen levels in the skin is necessary to support its structural foundation for improved firmness and elasticity. Astaxanthin, the hero ingredient in RubyCollagen, serves as the perfect complement by acting as a natural shield against the harsh and collagen-depleting rays of the sun.
This range comes with 2 products: RubyCollagen Essence, which is a drink, and RubyCollagen Essence strip, an edible snack-like strip.
The drink is quite refreshing chilled, and tastes like pomegranate. It’s not quite as handy as the strip which you can easily pop into your bag to munch on the go.
The recommended intake for both are 2 bottles/strips a day, but I have to admit that I’m mildly addicted to the essence strip. Texture wise, it’s kinda like konnyaku jelly and taste is very similar to the drink. It’s a damn tasty snack straight from the fridge!
They have different amounts of collagen and astaxanthin though, I’ll let the pictures do the talking:
I’ve been consuming RubyCollagen Essence strip for a month before I was invited by BRAND’S to their event though. I’m not too sure am I putting on weight, or the excess collagen is making me look plumper. I’ve actually always been eating collagen since about 5 years ago so it’s a little weird that this one would make a physical difference for me.
(If you wanna know…. it’s not the skin on my face that looks plumper. It’s everywhere else. And for some reason, the BF says my boobies are fuller. Does collagen even help with that!?)
One last thing – I really like the box design that essence strip comes in.
I’m an accident magnet and can get cuts from the most unimaginable places ever so this slide drawer box is perfect for me!
