A few years ago, I went to my hair stylist and said, “my hair is breaking off and brittle. What can I do to fix it?!” Her top response was this: COLLAGEN. You need to start taking collagen, daily.
I tried a few different powdered collagens and I do think they helped!
But a few months ago I FINALLY tried liquid collagen, after a friend told me that her elderly friend's joint pain completely went away once she started consistently taking liquid collagen. The very same week, my mom told me, “Corrine, you know what's finally getting my eyelashes to grow?” I guessed that she was going to tell me lash serum. Nope. Collagen!!
So today I'm sharing the one that I feel like works 10x better than any other I've tried. PLUS you can take $10 off your first purchase with my exclusive discount code!
Which collagen is best?
Like I said, I've been trying different powdered collagens on and off for the past few years. I think ANY collagen you take will make a difference in your skin, nails and hair.
What really motivated me to finally try this liquid collagen was the story my friend told me about the older woman she knew who got off all her pain medication from serious joint pain because she simply had a tablespoon of liquid collagen a couple times a day.
I like Modere's liquid PURE collagen the best because it's safe to take during pregnancy, has ZERO sugar, carbs and calories, and it improves joint mobility and lubrication, improves skin's hydration, firmness and tone. I've also seen my hair grow like a WEED and my skin is so much clearer and more supple when I'm consistently taking my collagen.
Modere also makes a liquid collagen SPORT that I haven't tried myself, because it's not recommended for pregnancy so I haven't ordered it! But it's designed for really active people who want a formula that's a bit stronger for joint support!
HOT DEAL on my favorite!
Right now, you can get my very favorite liquid collagen, Modere pure for $10 off if you're a brand new customer when you use this link! (You can save a little bit more, too, if you sign up for a subscription!)
This same offer applies to Modere sport if you want to try that instead.
ALSO, if you spend $139.99 total and your order includes liquid collagen pure (my personal fave) or liquid collagen sport, you'll get a box of 15 travel size modere trim ($50 value). I'll explain what that is later, but I do LOVE having the travel pouches to take on trips. They don't have to be refrigerated and are so easy to throw in your purse.
WHAT ELSE I LIKE FROM MODERE:
I LOVE Modere's TRIM (explained below) and randomly, I absolutely LOVE their deodorant too! It's honestly THE BEST clean deodorant I've ever tried. It has a super mild scent, goes on completely clear so I put it on right out of the shower and it doesn't transfer to my clothes, and it really works and lasts ALL DAY. Any other all-natural deodorant I've tried requires re-application throughout the day, but their deodorant is a one-and-done a day for me!
Why collagen is important
To make it super simple, collagen is a major component of healthy joints, youthful skin and connective tissue. Between your 20s and 30s your collagen production starts to decline, so taking collagen helps you get the benefits you once had when you were younger and your joints felt better, your hair grew thicker more easily, and your skin was more youthful.
Is it medically recommended?
Okay but how does it taste?
Personally this was one of the reasons I waited so long to try liquid collagen. I didn't want to take something that tasted bad. Here's my honest opinion: it doesn't taste terrible, but it doesn't taste amazing either. It's a kind of sour-ish taste but it's NOT awful, I promise! I really don't mind it. It's about 1,000x better than a LOT of the powder collagens that I tried that were chunky and I had to gag down a whole cup dissolved in water. This liquid collagen is a quick tablespoon twice a day.
What is modere TRIM?
Modere TRIM is a weight loss supplement. The manufacturers claim that this supplement helps with weight loss while also helping your muscle tone. So, in essence, it is a double-edged sword that reduces body fat and gives you muscles.
I've stopped taking the Trim since I got pregnant, but I actually LOVED the taste of the Modere trim in mango and in chocolate. That stuff tastes like a mango treat, or chocolate pudding! YUM. I miss it. It's not recommended for pregnancy and especially not for breastfeeding, when you need fat cells, because it essentially helps your body eliminate fat cells. But I'll for sure jump back in on that one eventually when I'm not pregnant or nursing.
Where to store your liquid collagen
It's recommended to keep your liquid collagen in the fridge. I have some in our fridge downstairs so I can take it right after breakfast or dinner (or sometimes when I'm getting my dessert after the kids are in bed!). I also keep some in my mini-fridge in my bathroom so I can easily take it in the morning when I'm getting ready or at night right before I start my skin and teeth routine.
Does collagen make a difference?
I've noticed a huge difference in everything from my skin to hair to nails, but MOST notably my hair!
Most people don't think of eyelashes first when they think of hair, but … they are!
I've noticed a HUGE difference growing my lashes out after damaging them for 10 YEARS doing traditional eyelash extensions, using both liquid collagen daily and this lash serum. Remember this was one of the reasons I was finally convinced to get serious about collagen – my mom said HER eyelashes finally started growing long again when she consistently used collagen!
Here's a before and after of right when I took my lash extensions off, and what they look like now!
Read more about growing your lashes out in this post I wrote on 3 easy steps to growing your lashes out!
Will collagen help your hair grow out?
The answer to this is YES. Longer, thicker, fuller. All yes.
Ask your hair stylist if they notice a difference between clients who DO use collagen, and clients who don't!
Here's a picture of my hair at its worst after postpartum hair loss, color damage and not taking any collagen. You can see how stringy the ends were and how much breakage I was experiencing!
And here's what my hair looks like NOW, after months of consistently taking collagen! Thick and full and healthy EVEN at the ends.
Where to buy collagen
Honestly you can get collagen at just about any grocery store, at Costco, online … it's all over the place. It's not all created equally though! Just like anything else.
I can only speak from personal experience, but I did notice a major difference between powder collagen and liquid collagen. Not only is it way easier for me to take a quick tablespoon twice a day, but it also has significantly made my hair, skin, nails and joint pain better!
