Many people have trouble with their skin. Over time, skin can dull and age. Lotions and moisturizers can only get you so far. After a certain point, lotions and moisturizers can’t restore damage to skin cells. 

That is why collagen supplements exist. Collagen supplements are designed to replenish your body’s collagen stores, the stuff that gives your skin its elasticity and strength. Skinade is a unique collagen supplement that is designed to be taken in liquid form. Skinade is unique because it is a collagen drink. Most other collagen supplements are in capsule or pill form. 

So today we are going to talk about Skinade and take stock of its features and ingredients. We will cover its pros, cons, price, where to find it, and whether it’s worth buying or not. Without any further ado, let’s get to it.

Skinade: Overview 

Skinade is an award-winning natural flavored skin supplement designed to replenish collagen contents. Skinade claims that its award-winning formula can improve the way your skin looks and feels in just 30 days. 

That is pretty amazing as far as skin supplements go. Most skin supplements take as little as 10-15 weeks to start showing effects, so if Skinade can really get effects in less than a month then that is amazing. 

Skinade also claims to be developed by leading UK scientists to create a liquid blend that can provide the maximum amount of bioavailable collagen. It has a pretty catchy slogan too: a “drink that works from the inside out.”

Skinade is free from all animal products and does not contain any lactose, gluten, or dairy. Skinade 30 day supply bottles

We couldn’t find a BBB page for Skinade but we found a Trustpilot page. Most reviews are very positive or good and most people claim that dealing with the company is fast and efficient. In general, it is good to see positive reviews on sites like Trustpilot as it indicates a company has a good public reputation. Moreover, the company can’t remove reviews on the site so it’s an accurate snapshot of public opinion.

How Does Skinade Work?

In general, Skinade has very positive reviews. Most customers claim that the product had a real effect and many people say that it actually has a good taste. Moreover, Skinade seems to be backed by sound science. 

Here is how it works: Your skin has two main layers: the outer layer and the inner layer. Both of these layers are made out of collagen, an important fibrous protein that is strong and elastic. Collagen is what gives your skin its flexibility and is also what makes it waterproof. 

Over time from aging and weathering, collagen in your skin can become damaged. Skin then loses its luster and becomes less elastic and soft. Normally, your body produces collagen but these systems can slow from age and environmental stresses. 

The formula of Skinade uses a patent-pending formula made out of collagen and micronutrients. The collagen in Skinade is hydrolyzed, meaning it has an open branch. Hydrolyzed collagen is absorbed by the body easier. Skinade also contains ingredients that promote the body’s production of natural collagen. Skinade also contains comparable levels of Vitamin C which increase bioavailability. 

Skinade also plays a role in fixing fibroblasts in the skin. Fibroblasts are cells that rebuild connective tissues. These cells lose potency as you age which makes it harder for your body to repair damaged connective tissues. Skinade contains ingredients that stimulate fibroblast activity, ensuring that your body can continue rebuilding connective tissues.

Skinade Ingredients

Here are some of the key ingredients of Skinade:

  • Hydrolyzed collagen
  • Flaxseed oil
  • L-lysine
  • Vitamin B
  • Vitamin C
  • Natural flavoringSkinade Ingredients

We have already covered the collagen. The importance is that it is hydrolyzed collagen, which makes it much easier for the body to absorb. The flaxseed oil is mostly used to make the formula a liquid you can drink, but flaxseed oil has some beneficial fats. 

L-lysine is an amino acid that is used in several medicines. It is commonly used for preventing and treating cold sores but we couldn’t find evidence that it is beneficial for the skin. 

Vitamin B and C are both good for the skin. Both vitamins B3 and C are potent antioxidants that neutralize free radicals. Vitamin C is also important for good immune health. 

Safety and Side Effects

We could not find any side effects listed for Skinade on the official website. However, we found a handful of customer reviews. The most common ones we found were

  • Upset stomach
  • Oily skin
  • Nausea
  • Bad aftertaste

Overall though, very few people noted any serious side effects. Collagen supplements are also known to cause indigestion but we could not find any customers complaining specifically about that side effect.  

Where to Buy Skinade and Cost

You can buy Skinade directly from the manufacturer’s website. A single 30 day supply of Skinade costs $165. That is pretty expensive so it’s a good thing that promises results in just a month. You can also buy a 60 day and 90-day course for $330 and $495 respectively. Skinade Website

Skinade: Is It Worth It?

We say yes, Skinade is most definitely worth it. The product is backed by a sound team of scientists and has some good customer testimonials. Skinade has a pretty good reputation too and has been featured in several notable outlets. So overall, we would say that Skinade is a smart choice. The one drawback is the relatively steep price.
