If you have always been curious about collagen powder drinks and how it can affect your complexion, read on. Belo Nutraceuticals recently came out with a new flavor of their Collagen Powder Drink—the Belo Collagen Melon Smoothie Powder Drink—which is a yummy beverage that claims to improve the appearance of one's skin.

Fun fact: 75% of our skin is made up of collagen, and it's the second most abundant substance in our body next to water. As we get older, the percentage of collagen in our body decreases, making us look haggard and older than we are. Good thing we can replace lost collagen through supplements!

What does the Belo Collagen Melon Smoothie Powder Drink taste like?

Experience:

The drink looked like milk and had nice melon taste. It was suprisingly good. I had zero expectations, so I’m glad it was pleasant. I also find that it was easier to mix in warm water than cold.

Some friends of mine had been taking collagen for a number of years and have all reported back to me that their skin was noticeably plumper. I never got around to trying collagen, so I was excited.

DAY 1

I followed my same daily regimen on Day 1. Prepared the drink for the morning. So far so good.

DAY 5

I continued with my daily regimen. I noticed that by Day 5 the dry patches under my lower lip improved.

DAY 7

Overall, with collagen as a supplement to my daily regimen, I noticed that my skin has been less prone to dryness. I have been taking the drink twice a day since Day 1 and I can see a marked difference in photographs.

Would you recommend it to others?

Yes! My skin became plumper after a week of taking the Belo Collagen Melon Smoothie Drink. The area on my lower lip has always been patchy, and it only became softer and smoother when I took the supplement drink. I can imagine how much more my skin will glow after months of drinking it. I will most likely buy more to continue my skin's improvement.
