I’ve had so many comments & DM about my skin and smile on my insta story. And today I wanted to share with you guys a few of my secrets. First, you must know that I’m a sucker for a beautiful smile. Growing up brushing my teeth twice a day was a full time chore. My grand mother used to say “ A woman is most beautiful when she smile.” Really the secret behind my smile is a trip to my Dentist twice a year. I use all natural tooth paste and I add a small amount of coconut oil, baking soda leaving my teeth beautiful, shiny and white.


You might be wondering what all the hype is around collagen these days. Collagen protein powders, collagen body lotions, collagen creams – it’s everywhere – circulating like a miracle cure-all among health enthusiasts. But just what is collagen, and is it really that good for you?

The truth of the matter is collagen is incredibly beneficial for your health. As the building blocks of your skin cells, it’s helpful for a number of reasons.

In fact, it’s found in every single connective tissue in the body, which includes your hair’s heath, parts of your nails, teeth, bones, skin, muscles, ligaments, tendons, discs, cartilage, superficial, visceral and deep fascia, as well as the lining of your blood vessels.

Derived from the Greek and French root words, “kola,” which means “glue,” and “gene,” meaning “born from,” collagen is more than just a buzz word. In essence, it holds the body together!


As we age, our bodies naturally produce less and less collagen, which is why we tend to wrinkle, have saggy skin, see more stretch marks, more cellulite, and overall skin degeneration. Supplementing with collagen can help fight against these signs of aging. I choose @neocell for the last year and half and I am proud of the results. For those of you who wouldn’t mind happening upon the fountain of youth, collagen supplementation could be your answer.
