Create a Spa-Worthy Drink
Add a scoop of collagen to a glass of water. This is best absorbed in the morning, before breakfast. Look for a “hydrolyzed collagen” that is broken down into smaller peptides for better absorption, such as COUNTRY LIFE MAXI-SKIN (in Vitality or Zen). Maxi-Skin Zen also includes vitamins A and C, and is available in unflavored, Mandarin Orange, and Berry flavors, which makes it easy to use alone or add to any smoothie.
