Have you made your New Year’s Resolutions? Will you show up at the gym only to drop out in a month? Will you join a weight loss program along with hundreds of others and then get tired of it within a short time? (I know this one all too well.) Or will you make resolutions for things you can really do and will change your life in a positive manner yet not take over your life?samples
You’ll find that I’ll be talking about skincare a lot this month because my New Year’s resolution is to take the best possible care of my skin as possible. It’s not that I don’t take care of it because I’ve become a faithful user of products that are good for my skin. But I want to do even better and add things that will make my skin look as youthful as possible. With a birthday in a week I’m very aware of the passage of time.
Neocell Ceramides Skin Hydrator was created because they found that ceramides were the hottest ingredient of 2017. “Ceramides are specific lipids naturally present in the skin, essential to the lipid barrier or moisture barrier of the skin. NeoCell Ceramides formulas use plant based lipids clinically tested to increase smoothness, moisture, and elasticity. Ceramides fortify the skin’s outer most layer and act as a water barrier to prevent the evaporation of moisture through the epidermis, keeping the skin hydrated and supple. Ceramides also prevent the breakdown of the skin’s collagen matrix by inhibiting collagenase, an enzyme that degrades collagen.”
Or in plain speak, ceramides help retain the moisture that is vital to our skin. In Neocell’s testing they found that these capsules increased moisture up to 36% and skin smoothness up to 34%. I’ll take it! The enemy of my skin is the dry condition that has come with age. The interesting thing is that you can have oily skin (t-zone especially) yet have dehydrated dry skin.
I loved finding out about the goodness of Neocell Ceramides Skin Hydrator. You take two tablets daily to help with hydration, elasticity and cellular turnover. My skin looks brighter now that my first month is over. It’s bitter cold out yet my skin really feels hydrated. The areas where I normally notice the dryness aren’t feeling as tight or as patchy. I am a supplement taker so these fit in great with my morning health process.
Neocell® 60-Count Ceramides + Hydrablend™ Ceramides Skin Hydrator Dietary Supplement can be found at Bed, Bath and Beyond (don’t forget your coupon), CVS.com, and Walgreens. $16.99 to $17.99. They are gluten free and non-GMO.

Another product I want to tell you about are the Collagen Cookie Bars. These are coming soon but I received some to try out.
The Collagen Cookie Bars come in 2 flavors: Coconut Chocolate Chunk (11 G Protein and 3 G Sugar) and Peanut Butter Crunch (12 G Protein and 4 G Sugar). They aren’t a diet snack (220 calories) but if you make it last throughout the day it’s not too bad. I actually make a bar last for 2 days and nibble on it to make them last longer. I’ll be finished soon but I’ll look for them when available. Since these aren’t available just yet I don’t know the price but they are a good way to include collagen in your diet. I think both flavors taste great but I’m a chocolate girl so that’s my favorite.
Both the taste of a cookie and the nutrition of a bar? Yes please! NeoCell Collagen Cookie Bar is a mouth-watering, one of a kind bar packed with high quality fats, fiber and 6 grams of Grass Fed NeoCell Collagen. Collagen is a nutrtional powerhouse protein that provides the building blocks for connective tissue throughout the body.
