Neocell’s Powerful Combination – Glow Matrix + Derma Matrix

I will start this post by saying that I am very happy with my health in general and my skin in particular. I have been putting a lot of time and effort into improving my lifestyle, my eating habits and even changing my outlook on life. Maybe it’s my 40s telling me to rethink about my old habits, to make better choices when presented with alternatives, and incorporate the new knowledge that I gather each day.

I have learned that it is very important to take care of ourselves no matter what age we are. Unfortunately not all of us have access to good quality information, and most of us are focusing our energy into areas such as studying and working which limits the decisions we can make in our personal lives.

I am so happy to be living in my 40s, and to be feeling well and proud of myself. I have not only managed to balance the daily pressures of my life, but in addition I have made many changes in my eating habits. I have also made better choices regarding the supplements I chose to be part of my daily beauty and health routine.

Since I started using NeoCell’s products I have felt a big change in my life, my skin changed for the better, as well as other improvements that I see in my body. For those of you who have been following me and reading my blog posts, you will know by now that I am addicted to beauty, not just to beauty products but also to dietary supplements that can help improve the way I look.

NeoCell was very kind to send me two products, which I decided to combine and test to let you know about the benefits of the products. I tested Glow Matrix Advanced Skin Hydrator and Derma Matrix Collagen Skin Complex together. I have already tested Derma Matrix alone, and I remembered that I loved it. I am always excited when I get the chance to test products like this because I believe that real beauty begin with inner beauty. 

 

Glow Matrix Advanced Skin Hydrator

 

The Glow Matrix by NeoCell is an interesting product because according to the company “Glow Matrix provides scientifically advanced ingredients designed to internally hydrate the skin. This premium formula supports the skin’s lipid barrier, which helps to lock in moisture and smooth the skin.” The blend of ingredients they use is one of the most potent I have seen, with essential vitamins, minerals and other components that are essential for our health.

This product is presented as a dietary supplement with 90 capsules in a plastic container. The suggested use is 3 capsules daily, which can be taken on an empty stomach or after any meal.

See below what is special in the formula:

Derma Matrix Collagen Skin Complex

The Derma Matrix comes in a plastic container with 6.46oz (183g). NeoCell claims that it promotes reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, increases hydration by 21%, and supports cell turnover as well as elasticity, according to the packaging information. I have already tried this product on its own and I wrote a review about it here in my blog. It really does what it says in the packaging!

This product by NeoCell is quite interesting because it is a good source of protein, containing 6g per scoop, and also they use an association of wonderful ingredients that together will do wonders for your health and skin:

  • Amla Fruit Extract (Vitamin C): Its main benefits are the prevention of cancer, it may protect against radiation, increases HDL, which is the good cholesterol, it has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, acts as an antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal in the body, it promotes balance as well as wellness. Helps to prevent wrinkles because it protects the skin against oxidative stress caused by free radicals and metals. It helps to increase growth of collagen, making the skin look beautiful and plumped.

  • Hyaluronic Acid: Maximizes collagen levels keeping the skin supple, it helps to retain skin moisture. Contributes to anti-aging, and it relieves joint pain as well as inflammation.

 

The Powerful Combination

I took both products in the morning before breakfast, as I believe they will have better absorption. I waited a few minutes before preparing my food. Both NeoCell’s products are tasteless and odorless, so are easy to take it in the morning. The Derma Matrix dilutes very easy in any drink and the Glow Matrix capsules are easy to swallow. I kept to this routine for 30 days, following the instructions rigorously.

For me, I think the highlight about taking these two wonderful products together was that I had no pain in my joints while working out daily at the gym, a problem that I have had in the past. Many people who work out tell me that they have joint pains and I believe that these products from NeoCell will help people a lot, just like the products have been helping me. I have taken NeoCell products for a few months now and I have noticed a great reduction of joint pain. I have also found that my skin is very smooth and most of my fine lines are smoothed out, but I guess if I stop taking the capsules they will eventually come back. My hair has grown faster also!

Take a look at these photos. I have no makeup, only a lip balm.

 

The properties found in these two products work in perfect synergy to keep the health and skin in good shape. I described the ingredients briefly, to illustrate the main benefits of each ingredient stated on the packaging. Of course, there are other benefits and I encourage readers to research about what these products can do to improve health.

It is very important that we should take care of our bodies, the same way that we care of our skin by choosing the right products wisely, and testing them, just like I do. I used to invest a lot of money in cosmetic and beauty products that could bring me some kind of skin benefit but as the years passed by I realized that we also have to worry about what we put inside our bodies. I recommend you give these products a try and see the benefits for yourself. Some people can take more than a month to see the outcome, as in my case, I have noticed that the more I use these products, the better my skin, my joints and my overall health gets!

Do you need more reasons after reading the benefits of these wonderful products? You can find NeoCell products in several stores across the country, beauty stores, pharmacies, supermarkets and others. If you have tried this combination already, please share your thoughts and experiences with me, I would be very happy to know what you think.

My next mission is to test another exciting combination: Beauty Infusion Collagen Powder Cranberry Cocktail and Pomegranate Capsules. Please stay tuned for the next post!
