12 Sep 10 Day Beauty Greens Challenge // Days 5-10
Good Morning! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I finished my 10 Day Beauty Greens Challenge over the weekend and wanted to take a moment to share with you some of my results!
If you’ve been following along, you know that I have recently been introduced to the benefits of ingesting protein in the form of collagen and and my new favorite way to do that through Vital Proteins. [Read about my obsession with collagen here]. They have a wonderful product called the Beauty Greens drink. It’s a dry blend of Marine Collagen Peptides and healthy, organic greens filled with Vitamin A, hyaluronic acid, and probiotics that specifically enhance those “beauty elements” and give you a fabulous glow!
You simply mix Vital Proteins Beauty Greens with water and drink it! The elements in this green drink are supposed to nourish your beauty-boosters from the inside out and help enhance your natural beauty by helping your hair, skin and nails. I decided to try it out for myself, so for the past 10 days, I have started my morning with Beauty Greens!
Here I am on Day ONE of this challenge:
Here are my thoughts from Day 1:
My skin is healthy, but a little dull. My hair lays a bit flat on my head and my nails are short and stubby… they peel, too. ugh. I have a few wrinkles above my eyebrows because I’m just an animated person and my dry skin likes to keep them there… Hopefully we can fix some of these, or just make them a little bit better!”
Here I am on Day TEN of this challenge:
-My skin just feels so much more moisturized and less itchy. This is not just my face, but all over. I have extremely dry skin and it itches all over, typically, so this has been something I noticed right off the bat and LOVE!
-My psoriasis is ALMOST COMPLETELY GONE, Y’ALL! I have psoriasis [and have had it forever] in my eyebrows and hairline and I have no flair-up’s on my face and the small amount that’s left in my hair is so minimal it’s unbelievable! Y’all… I can’t tell you what this means for me! If this was the only result I saw, it would be more than worth it already. This little drink is going to become something I do daily from now one because of my psoriasis.
-I feel like I’m pregnant. Not morning sick, not getting bigger… just glowing. My skin just glows differently and my hair is healthy and strong! I just feel like I have this glow and I’ve had several people compliment my skin recently!
-My hair has always been strong and healthy, but it seems smoother, recently! That’s been a plus, for sure!
-I have lost 3 pounds. Now, I know that 3 pounds isn’t much and that it’s almost annoying that I noticed it, but I said this last time… I feel like when I start my day with the Beauty Greens, I’m far more likely to make healthy decisions throughout the day! So… 3 lbs in 10 days? I’ll take it!
I am obviously a huge fan of the Beauty Greens Drink, but I also love the Chocolate Collagen Whey Protein Mix from Vital Proteins. I like to make a milkshake at the end of the day with it when I’m craving dessert! Here’s my little protein milkshake recipe!
2 Scoops of Vital Proteins Chocolate Collagen Whey Protein
1 Scoop of Coconut Bliss Ice Cream* [I like chocolate hazelnut fudge]
1/4cup of Vanilla Almond Milk
5-8 ice cubes
Blend together and you have a creamy, dreamy, all-natural and healthy milkshake!
*Coconut Bliss is my pick for an all-natural, dairy free and tasty dessert! It’s my favorite!
It’s no question that collagen has a million benefits, especially to your hair, skin and nails! I am so thankful that I’ve found Vital Proteins and, like I said earlier, I’m going to continue drinking Beauty Greens because I am definitely loving the results! And if these results are only after 10 days, I can’t wait to see how I feel after a month!
