COLLAGEN EYE PATCHES FOR THOSE TIRED LITTLE EYES, -A VIDEO TUTORIAL STARRING…ME!
Hi darlings. If you like me, sometimes wake up with tired, swollen eyes from too little sleep, too much traveling, too hot temperatures in the bedroom etc, then these bad boy collagen eye patches from cult brand Magic Stripes (I L.O.V.E. their Hyalaronic treatment mask) could be something for you. The patches have a cooling effect which obviously help reduce eye bags and swelling, while they moisturize and smooth fine lines around the eye area. Because I love this brand I agreed to do a marieandthemakeupXbeautyheroXMagicstripes video tutorial and as a matter of fact I was so unprofessional that I’d been out all night dancing before the shoot, which kind of was a genuine good thing to do when filming this as they are perfect for a ‘pick me up the day after’ treat. Or something like that.
The topical collagen patch is great for beauty and body treatment, there are great supplements as well with the BioOptimal Collagen Powder, Collagen Peptides Grass Fed, Non-GMO Premium Quality Hydrolyzed Collagen Protein, Pasture Raised, Dissolves Easily, 300 Grams.
The benefits of collagen are significant given that it is your body’s most abundant and major structural protein accounting for about one-third of the total protein and three-quarters of the dry weight of skin in humans.
The word comes from the Greek, “kólla,” meaning, glue. Collagen literally acts like glue to provide form and support for your body.
“It’s a beautiful molecule — wavy, with a fibrous nature,” says Kevin Eliceiri, Director of the Laboratory for Optical and Computational Instrumentation (LOCI), at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, about collagen, “Without it we would be a sack of nothing.”
The Molecular Cell Biology book informs that collagen consists of amino acids tightly wound together to create a strong, ropelike molecule that forms stretch-resistant fibers. In fact, some types of collagen fibers are, gram-for-gram, stronger than steel.
Collagen’s Role in the Body
Simply put, you want healthy amounts of collagen to do all the amazing things this molecule performs. Among its roles, collagen:
- Gives strength, rigidity, and stretch resistance to connective tissue including tendons, ligaments, cartilage, and bones.
- Plays a role in muscle, constituting one to two percent of muscle tissue and six percent of the weight of strong, tendinous muscles.
- It provides structure to many other body parts, including blood vessels, corneas, and teeth.
- It provides your skin elasticity and suppleness.
- Attracts new skin cells to help heal wounds and create new tissue growth
