BuluBox Blog Draft - Unboxing Sparkle Skin Boost

Sparkle Skin Boost

It’s no secret that glowing, gorgeous skin doesn’t just come from expensive creams — it all starts from within.

Consuming the right nutrients every day can unlock the key to achieving great skin with just a little bit of effort.

We stress on the words every day because the collagen in our skin is depleted as we age and if we help boost collagen production by ingesting collagen peptides daily — we are reversing the damage and maintaining youthful, hydrated skin for the long haul.


Why should you drink collagen?

There’s a lot of buzz about collagen peptides and it’s no wonder because its benefits are certainly more than skin deep — not only do collagen peptides help skin and nails become strong and healthy, they improve joints and aid digestion.

As a fibrous protein that keeps the dermis plump and healthy, collagen is a major structural component in our skin — that's why we need to protect it from environmental stresses, like UV damage, pollution, hormones, free radicals, which all contribute to aging.

Through proper daily skin nutrition, rest and exercise, we can slow down the aging process by stimulating our own body's natural collagen production.

How can we do this? By taking Sparkle Skin Boost, a powder supplement packed with 2,500mg of VERISOL collagen peptides and vitamin C, every day.

To keep skin even more nourished and hydrated, Sparkle Skin Boost Plus has hyaluronic acid and an even higher dose of vitamin C, on top of the 5,000mg of VERISOL collagen peptides (twice the amount of collagen peptides compared to Sparkle Skin Boost).

How do we make collagen a habit?

By making it delicious and fun, you’ll want to drink Sparkle every day. Sparkle Skin Boost comes in three luscious flavors — Orange, Mixed Berry, and Apple Ginger. We also have a No Flavor version for those who don’t want the taste of their chosen beverage to change or who prefer not to consume stevia (our preferred natural sweetener for our flavored products).

You can pop a scoop of Sparkle Skin Boost into water, or tea, a smoothie or even yogurt, cereal and salad dressings. We say, change it up to keep it interesting — switch flavors, put it in different beverages and food. 

 

Have a super busy schedule or traveling? We’ve got you covered with our convenient Sparkle Skin Boost Capsules that are easy to tote around.

 If you’re not sure which is your flavor, our Skin Boost Starter Kit is the perfect intro to our range. Try a single serve of each of the four Sparkle flavors and then pick the one you love for a full-sized tub.

How do you choose the right collagen supplement? 

Sippable beauty beverages are all the rage now, but how do you spot the ones that truly work? We say, give the ingredients list a closer look.

Choose collagen peptide formulas that are clinically backed. The primary active ingredient in Sparkle, called VERISOL Collagen Peptides, has been the focus of a number of clinical studies.

The studies found that VERISOL had the following benefits.

1. Reduces Fine Lines & Wrinkles

In a trial involving 114 women between age 45 and 65 who consumed 2,500mg of VERISOL daily had a significant reduction in wrinkles after 4 weeks as a result of the collagen in their skin having increased by up to 60%

2. Improves Skin Elasticity

In another trial, VERISOL was found to have improved skin elasticity by 7% on average, and in women over the aged of 50 years the increase in skin elasticity was 15%

3. Beneficial Effect on Cellulite

In a third clinical study with 105 women demonstrated that regular ingestion of VERISOL over a period of 6 months led to a clear improvement of the skin in women displaying moderate cellulite

4. Better Nail Health

A study over 6 months showed an average increase in rate of nail growth of 10%, a 42% reduction in chipped or cracked nails, and a decrease in brittle nail syndrome in 88% of participants, of whom 80% were completely satisfied with their VERISOL treatment

When choosing a collagen peptide supplement, make sure of the dosage of collagen peptides in the supplement — there should be at least 2,500mg for it to be effective. Anything less and you’ll likely not see any positive results.

Also - check that the ingredients other than the collagen peptides are all-natural. Sparkle Skin Boost only uses natural flavoring and coloring and we chose stevia not only for its tastiness but also because it is naturally derived. Sparkle products are also free from GMOs, sugar, gluten, dairy and soy.
