Many times we think that creams and masks used to take care of our skin, but created, we forget that our skin must be fed and cared for on the inside, not just outside.
Within the natural cosmetics we can use many recipes and tricks ex: a good mask for wrinkles, preparations and creams with Rosehip, vegetable oils and essential oils for mature or aged skin, etc. All these treatments will serve little if we don’t take care of our skin on the inside with a good diet or nutritional supplements. We must get our beauty from the inside. Here are some natural health supplements for your skin.

Hydrolyzed marine collagen; it is the protein that forms connective tissue fibers in tissues such as the skin, ligaments, cartilage, bones and teeth. It gives support, consistency and form blood vessels, bones, and organs. Ingested orally hydrolyzed collagen increases the density of the collagen fibrils and the density of the fibroblasts (Chief cells of the dermis which also secrete collagen). It is recommended to take 4 grams a day out of meals, if it can be taken along with a source of vitamin c.
