It’s happening - the sun is coming out, the sky is (tentatively) turning from grey to blue, and the trees are blossoming. And of course, the pub gardens are reopening! Summer is on the way!

It feels like a particularly poignant springtime after what has been a strange and stressful year. With lockdown gradually easing and life slowly getting back on track, everyone is taking the next steps at their own pace. Readjusting takes time, and that’s totally fine.

We at Absolute Collagen are here for you whatever your next steps look like. So we’ve put together some advice on how you can create your own personal roadmap for coming out the other side of lockdown - think of it as taking all the things you unlocked in the last year, whether that’s a passion for yoga or an appreciation of time spent with loved ones, and bringing it with you into a post-covid world, helping you be your best and most confident self.

Post-Lockdown Skin Tips with Team AC

Over lockdown, sales of skincare products soared - it seems we all decided to invest in helping our skin look good while stuck at home, ready for the return to our social lives! We think it’s a great idea - the skin is the largest organ, so it makes perfect sense to take special care of it.

One way we at AC HQ can offer practical advice is when it comes to stressed skin. Our expert Dermatologist, Dr Ne Win, recently covered this in a wonderfully detailed guest blog for us, explaining how to treat stressed skin. Stress can impact us in a number of ways, so if you spot any of the following it may be time to de-stress your skin.

Some good general skin care tips to follow include always applying your skincare products from thinnest consistency to thickest. You should cleanse your skin before applying any product, and if you use Maxerum, our clinically proven collagen-boosting serum, you should apply this directly onto cleansed skin and allow it to soak in for a couple of minutes before applying all other products. Maxerum contains hyaluronic acid for the ultimate in hydration, and bakuchiol which is a plant-derived alternative to retinol with none of its side effects, meaning you can apply it day and night.

Plus, be sure to take your daily dose of Absolute Collagen, too! Now in three delicious flavours, we’ve made it even easier to get that AC goodness! Each sachet contains 8000mg of premium marine collagen enriched with Vitamin C, working on your body from the inside out and helping you achieve that gorgeous dewy glow. 

It’s the maximum amount of collagen in the smallest liquid dose and it’s perfect for on-the-go now things are beginning to reopen!

Post-Lockdown Hair Tips with Team AC

But we’re not just about getting your skincare glow on - we also know how important great hair can be to your overall confidence. We all love a glossy, glowing mane in the spring sunshine, after all. That’s why we’re proud to work with resident hair expert, Eva Proudman, Chairman of the Institute of Trichologists.

There are lots of ways you can help keep your hair in tip-top condition and help promote great hair growth, as Eva explored in a recent blog for us. One of her expert tips is to make sure you’re nourishing your hair with a healthy diet - hair cells are thirsty for nutrients, with hair follicles needing a massive 25% of your daily protein intake! Protein and iron rich foods are the way to go - for instance, did you know that eggs are a protein-rich superfood, packed with B vitamins including Biotin, which is known to support healthy hair, skin and nails. Read more about hair foods here.

Plus, a daily dose of Absolute Collagen can also support great looking hair, too. All you have to do is choose your favourite flavour!

And remember, there’s no rush to return to “normal”, and “normal” looks very different for lots of different people. We’re here for all our Absoluters as we navigate our way out of lockdown - if you’re an Absoluter and haven’t yet joined our exclusive Facebook group (using the password found in your first email from us when you subscribed!) head on over to join today for lots of chat and support.

We hope you’re all enjoying the warmer weather and feeling your absolute best - here’s to an amazing summer!
