If you’re like most brides, you want to “glow” on your wedding day. Your appearance on the big day is crucial, not only because your wedding is one of the most important days of your life, but also because it will be captured eternally in wedding photography and videography. Your wedding photos are going to be everywhere – on your walls, in photo albums, and shared in social media, so naturally, you’ll want to look your very best.
In an effort to look as stunning as possible, many brides engage in last-minute beauty routines, but this can be a problem. Cramming multiple beauty routines into the two or three days before your wedding will make you feel more stressed out, in addition to making you look less than perfect. Treatments like facials can leave your skin reddened and irritated. They could even cause allergic reactions.
Experts say that you should start your wedding beauty regimen six months before the big day. To help that beautiful facial glow along before your wedding, take liquid collagen supplements, which contain a youth-boosting combination of ingredients that nourish the skin from the inside out.
Collagen drinks target the signs of aging related to collagen loss, such as wrinkles and fine lines. They also make your skin look smoother and more youthful, giving you the look of perfect skin on your wedding day. Unlike Botox, dermabrasion, injectable wrinkle fillers, and other invasive procedures, drinking a liquid collagen supplement won’t have negative side effects that could ruin your wedding day appearance.
Collagen is a major structural protein of the skin that provides firmness and elasticity. Collagen constitutes about 70% of your skin’s mass. Starting when you are 18 years old, collagen production decreases by about 1% a year. The degradation of collagen is what leads to wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging. You can slow down the aging process by increasing the collagen levels in your body with a collagen supplement. Liquid collagen supplements are easily digested and absorbed in the body, improving the way your skin looks and feels.
A collagen drink is more effective than collagen cream or tablets because it contains hydrolyzed collagen, which has a smaller molecule size. The hydrolysis process reduces collagen molecules from their natural state to a smaller size to achieve maximum bioavailability. This ensures that your body is able to efficiently absorb the collagen.
Regular consumption of hydrolyzed collagen has been shown to increase skin elasticity and hydration as well as make your skin smoother. A liquid collagen supplement is an ideal addition to any bride-to-be’s beauty regimen because of its youth-promoting effects.
Host Collagen Parties Before Your Wedding
In addition to the bride, the bride’s mother, bridesmaids, and other guests will want to look their very best on the big day. After all, everyone is going to be in front of the camera for much of the event. Hosting collagen parties is a fun way to get your wedding party on board with collagen treatment. By starting a three- to six-month course of collagen treatment before the wedding, you can all look more youthful and have a pretty glow on the big day. Your hair and nails will also look and feel healthier, to boot.

It was difficult to spot the difference because you look at your face every morning. You stumble upon an old picture from college or even just five years ago. “My skin used to be so smooth and firm!” “Where did that saggy, extra skin come from underneath my chin?”
Skin issues can be emotionally difficult to deal with. We feel self-conscious when there is a giant, red pimple on our nose or when there are more dark spots and less firmness in our skin. It is the first thing people see and generally, we cannot hide it.
As a teenager, I struggled with acne and later in my twenties, I remember waking up one morning with dry, scaly patches on the bridge of my nose and on my neck. Seemingly overnight, I found myself dealing with moderately severe eczema.
People would ask, “What’s wrong with your neck? Did you get a really bad sunburn.” As much as I tried to convince myself that I was not self-conscious about my skin, these innocent comments from friends and family started to wear down on me.
I would hesitate to wear t-shirts because they exposed my neck, and I did not want to deal with the “innocent” comments or have to explain that I was not contagious. I tried different eczema creams and lotions but this was more than just dry skin.
As much as I disliked going to the doctor, my mom, who is a pharmacist, convinced me to make an appointment with my family physician. My doctor examined my skin and came back after 5 minutes with two tubes of medication—two different forms of topical steroid creams. He said, “Just apply these until the patches go away.”
“How long will I have to use these?”
“Probably off and on for the rest of your life.”
That just did not make any sense to me. This was one of those turning points in my life that started me down the path of looking for answers about what these symptoms mean and how to get to the root cause of the issue rather than just covering up the issue with medications.
Little did I realize, or did my family physician, that my form of eczema (also commonly called atopic dermatitis) was not primarily a skin disease, but rather a sign that my body’s internal environment was out of balance.
My mom was always the one encouraging myself and her customers at the pharmacy to use as few medications as possible. She promoted healthy lifestyle and nutrition because she understood that medications were not the answer to all health problems. You might see why I was inspired to look to a different approach to medicine. My holistic medical education at Bastyr University, an accredited naturopathic medical school, taught me to look at symptoms in the context of whole-body health.
Even if you do not have a skin condition, taking care of your internal environment will keep your skin healthy, radiant, and smooth.
Let me explain.
Produced by fibroblasts, elastin is an important protein that enables our skin to return to its original shape after it stretches or contracts. Elastin fibers are like little rubber bands in the connective tissue throughout our bodies. Eventually, the fibers lose their ability to snap back.
Through the years, there are many things that can take a toll on your skin, including the sun, bad habits, and pollution. Exposure to these elements can damage the elastin fibers in your skin, which causes the skin to sag and stretch.
Loose skin and tissue under the upper arm area due to damaged elastin is a common issue. Flabby upper arm skin may make you feel reluctant to wear sleeveless shirts and swimsuits. Factors that contribute to sagging underarm skin include aging, smoking, genetics, and weight loss.
When your weight fluctuates, it can break or weaken the elastin fibers in the dermis, which results in the loss of tensile strength. Therefore, the skin is unable to bounce back and regain its original shape, similarly to when a rubber brand is stretched beyond its limit. If you lose weight and simultaneously lose muscle mass, this leads to a loss of tone that causes the skin in the underarm area to appear flaccid.
Here are some tips for avoiding
and treating sagging underarm skin.
Nearly everyone has heard of collagen and its importance for skin health, but few people know how to tell the difference between the many truths and falsehoods that abound regarding collagen supplements.

Let’s expose the top 5 myths about collagen supplements, so you can ensure that you’re using proven treatments in a correct way while saving yourself time, money, and effort.
