Hydration from Within and Without From #Neocell

Press Samples.  All opinions are my own.
Hello, Fireflies!

I used to think that because I had oily skin, hydration was not a concern for me.  But, the more I learn, and as my skin ages, I realize that you can have dehydrated skin, no matter how much oil it produces!  For the last month, I've been treating my body and my skin with hydration from within, taking NeoCell's Glow Matrix, and also on top of the skin, using Neocell's Collagen Moisturizing Treatment Masque.

I have to admit, I'm not big on taking pills anymore.  My mom used to make me take handfuls of vitamins when I was growing up, so I rebelled in my "I'm a grownup, I can do what I want" stage by not taking anything.  Now, I take a multi-vitamin, and a few things from time to time.  Adding three pills to my regimen was not a small thing.

NeoCell's Glow Matrix,
The pills themselves are capsules, flavorless, and easy to swallow.  They contain NeoCell's Ceramosides (tm) Ceramides essential to keeping moisture in the skin, and their Glow Matrix Blend (tm) of Hyaluronic Acid and other nutrients that promote hydration and combat free radicals in the skin.
Collagen is the foundation of the NeoCell product line, and the Glow Matrix helps give your body what it needs to rebuild its own collagen.  It's what gives strength and elasticity to the skin.  Strength + Hydration = a youthful glow!

While I was working on rebuilding collagen and hydration from within, I couldn't turn down the opportunity to try one of NeoCell's new topical products - a moisturizing treatment masque!  It's so thick and rich and luxurious.  And, unlike most masques, this one doesn't harden on the skin.  It's very moisturizing.
The "Before" picture is from before I even started taking the Glow Matrix, or applied the mask.  Though I'm generally happy with my skin, I do get breakouts and dullness from too much oil and not enough water.  I have one wonky eye bag that is deeper than the other.  And, I'm starting to get fine lines around the eyes and mouth.
I had to include a 'during' picture of when I applied the mask because not only is it a unique mask, it also kinda spooked my husband!  He's used to the green masks, but this stark white one startled him a little.  I do so love a multi-tasker - pamper your skin, and freak out your family, all at the same time!
I saw one blogger's review of the Glow Matrix, and she had an impressive change in the appearance of her hands, so I thought I would take before and after pictures of my hand, too.  I didn't have as dramatic of a change - probably because I'm always moisturizing and oiling my hands - but check out my nails.  I've never had them grow this strong and long before.  I file them to keep them at this length.  Keeping my nail matrix hydrated inside and out has certainly made a difference in my nails.

I have posted a lot of "naked" face pictures here on the blog, but I think this is the first one that I really love.  I feel great about how my 44-year-old skin looks! 

Some black and white geometric nailart, inspired by the NeoCell Collagen Masque packaging.  I used a white base, then striping tape and Milani Black Swift for the design.

For more information, you can find Neocell on their website, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and also on Facebook, where they also have printable coupons available!   Currently, the NeoCell topicals are being carried on iHerb, where this masque retails for $10.05.  Their supplements are carried in many places, including GNC and the Vitamin Shoppe.  Their website can help you find a location closest to you.
