5 top tips for taking your collagen - and sticking to it!
We’ve all been there. Buy a new beauty product, kickstart your new routine, then a week later your motivation falls by the wayside and you’re left wondering why you’re not getting the results you want.
And whilst it might sound like a cliche, when it comes to getting results from your collagen supplement, consistency really is key.
Not forgetting, that once you start taking your collagen, it slowly builds up over time with the average person seeing optimum results after three months. So if you don’t take it consistently, you will start to see your results decline as your Collagen levels to deplete.
Well, not this year sistas.
If we’re really going to commit to being our best selves in 2021, we’re going to have to commit when it comes to getting our collagen kicks.
Here's our top 5 tips for taking your Dewty Daily Collagen Drink - and sticking to it.
Commit to 30 days
Like all good things in life, good things come to those who commit. Collagen really is like a gym routine, you can’t take it a couple of times and expect to see effective results.
Yes, you might see some initial results, much like if you go to the gym a couple of times you might experience a short term burst of energy and an endorphin rush but the real long term results come from what you do consistently over time.
Three to four weeks is the amount of time the human brain needs to do something before it forms an automatic habit. Science shows that if you can make it through this initial conditioning stage, it becomes much easier to commit to something long term.
In the case of collagen, you should start to see visible results after this time, giving you the kickstart you need to keep your motivation on a high.
Set a reminder
You can’t forget what you get reminded about, right? Set a daily reminder in your phone first thing so you remember to take your glorious collagen.

Tell people around you
