Have you ever seen this billboard for IVI Premium Collagen Powder along C-5? Finally I was able to grab a shot of it last Saturday after I attended the Family Day at PAREF Woodrose School for Girls at Ayala Alabang.
Okay, here’s a closer look:
I’ve seen this billboard maybe thrice, but it always got me thinking. What about it piqued my curiousity? Aside from Gretchen looking younger than ever, those 2 cleaners are definitely attention-grabbing as well. The first time I saw it, I thought the cleaners were real but when I read the message “Erase Age Marks”, well… yeah that explains it.
As soon as we got home that day, I quickly checked out the info online about IVI Premium Collagen Powder. Below are some info I got from the IVI Website.
Collagen is the main structural protein found in our bodies. It makes up more than 80% of our skin. It provides the strength our tissues and organs require. It is produced in huge amounts by our bodies in our younger years. However, by the time we reach our mid 20s our collagen levels drop down due to external factors such as sun exposure, smoking, excessive alcohol and pollutants. The less collagen in the skin, the more degeneration occurs- a sign of collagen depletion.
What are the effect of Collagen Depletion?
- Fine lines
- Crow’s feet
- Sagging skin
- Skin discoloration
- Sun spots
- Poor skin tone and elasticity
What are the benefits of IVI Premium Collagen Powder Drink?
- Stimulates collagen production and elastin collagen thickening
- Encourages skin renewal and minimizes muscle contractions.
- Reduces the appearance of deep wrinkles and fine lines.
- Helps provide long-term improvements in deeper wrinkles.
- Helps prevent collagen and elastin breakdown to firm the skin.
- Replenishes damaged collagen tissues.
- Improves skin tone and elasticity.
Knowing this now, I’ve decided to try out this product. I’m in my mid-30s and have no skin regimen whatsoever. I don’t wear makeup, I don’t use toners and facial wash, neither do I moisturize. I played outdoor sports when I was 11 until I was in my 20s, that’s golf every summer and weekends, and I didn’t use an umbrella or sunblock either. So yes, I’m guilty of sun exposure and smoking (though it’s been 4.5 years since I’ve stopped).
It’s been 4 days since I’ve had the powder with my morning coffee and I can’t wait to finish the first box (or more). Hopefully, there is still hope for me to reverse or halt some of the damage that I’ve subjected my skin to (unconsciously of course). When mixed with black coffee, the color will change at the start, as if you’ve put 1/4tsp of cream. Stirring continuously then breaks down the powder and the coffee goes back to its original color. The taste? I don’t taste it much. I know there’s powder in it, so maybe it’s psychological that I think it tastes just a hint of mild milk or cream. Let’s see what happens in 14 days shall we? Check back soon!
