Looking for a skin-nourishing summer treat? Look no further! This delicious collagen-boosting nicecream is packed with skin-firming flavanoids, prized for their anti-ageing properties.
Most supermarket icecreams are packed with sugars and artificial sweeteners, colours and additives. Excess sugars are a big no-no when it comes to helping your skin look plump and youthful.
When you have sugar molecules in your system, they bombard your body's cells causing a process known as glycation. This particularly affects collagen and elastin fibres, which normally keep your complexion looking plump and supple. When glycation occurs, these become discoloured, weak and less springy- and show up on the skin's surface as wrinkles, sagginess and a loss of radiance.
This process also makes your skin more vulnerable to other causes of skin-ageing - like UV light and cigarette smoke.
We recommend you skip the store-bought icecream and whip up this better-for-you version with ingredients that will not only avoid damaging your collagen but actually help you build collagen fibres for more youthful, supple skin.
