So we have been told for decades by doctors and skincare experts that drinking lots of water is key for keeping your skin in optimum shape. I drink TONS of water and yet I still deal with dryness issues. As a lot of you know it seems like as soon as I hit 40 I really struggled with major skin changes. It seemed like it happened over night! My skin used to be oily, especially during the summer months and all of a sudden I felt like I was a dried out husk of a person. Now I drink tons of water and use a myriad of fantastic skincare products but sometimes that does just not seem enough to combat the dryness concerns. So I thought back to what I have always been told, BEAUTY STARTS FROM THE INSIDE OUT. So knowing this I set out to find out what I could do to fix my problem.
I came across this brand NEOCELL and they seemed to have some very innovative products geared to skin and hair health. They can be found at Walgreen’s, CVS, Sam’s Club and Bed Bath and Beyond. The first product I tried was the NEOCELL Ceramides Skin Hydrator. The claim was you could see results in skin moisture and smoothness in as little as 15 days. I had never heard of Ceramides so here is what I was able to find out about them:
“Ceramides fortify the skin’s outer most layer and act as a water barrier to prevent the evaporation of moisture through the epidermis, keeping the skin hydrated and supple. Ceramides also prevent the breakdown of the skin’s collagen matrix by inhibiting collagenase, an enzyme that degrades collagen”
This statement made sense to me, I can’t afford to be leaking out more moisture!! The back of the bottle makes this claim:
“Ceramides Skin Hydrator is a nutricosmetic solution scientifically formulated for healthy skin hydration. This unique blend of beauty-enhancing promotes skin hydration, elasticity, and cellular turnover for glowing, supple skin”
I have used this product for a month and I did notice a difference in the hydration of my skin in the first 15 days. The big things I noticed was I had to use less lotion all over my body (It’s winter time so that is a big deal). My skin was less tight feeling as well. At the end of the 30 days I noticed that my skin did seem smoother (especially in my face) and more plump looking. My skin also did not look as tired and dull as before I started. These differences mark a major feat in my skincare battles and I have to say I am super impressed.
In addition to the NEOCELL Ceramides Skin Hydrator I also tried the NEOCELL Hair Skin & Nails Beauty Chews. This tasty chew promised Healthy Lustrous Hair, Radiant Skin and Stronger Nails. This supplement has 5000 MCG of Biotin, Collagen and Vitamin C.
I have to say taking these 2 products in conjunction had a major effect and change in hair, skin and nails. I can never grow my nails, when I try they are usually flimsy and break super easy (Then I just bight them off) this has always been a never ending battle. In regards to my hair, I have fine curly hair and due to coloring for years it is prone to breakage and as I got older it just did not grow back as quickly as it had when I was younger.
After a month of using both of these products my skin is not only doing fantastic and looking great but my hair is actually growing in thicker and a lot healthier. And let’s not forget my nails! They are growing much stronger and they are not breaking or splitting anymore. I can actually paint them and not feel ashamed of my hands for once in my life.
All in all this brand gets two thumbs up from me and I look forward to continuing to use them for a long time. If you experience any of these struggles you should run.. not walk to your nearest retailer and purchase these. I have used similar products like these in the past with limited results. NEOCELL beats these other brands out of the water (no pun intended).
Thanks for reading y’all and I hope to have some new fun discoveries to share with you soon.
