  • Collagen is an important protein that provides structure to the skin, hair, nails, connective tissue, cartilage, bones and joints. It gives skin strength and elasticity, and is what makes younger skin look plump, and less lined. It is one of the most abundant proteins in the body but as we age, collagen production declines and the skin matrix tends to weaken, leading to wrinkles, fine lines and dry skin. Exposure to factors like UV light, a high-sugar diet or smoking can decrease our collagen levels too. • There are claims that applying collagen in the form of creams can boost collagen within the skin, helping to reduce signs of ageing; however collagen molecules are too big to be absorbed through the skin’s matrix. These creams probably work as simple moisturizers only. • Collagen pills have also recently been hailed as a wrinkle-fighting elixir for the skin but there’s very little data or rigorous scientific studies to prove it. Collagen is a protein, which is broken down in the gut during digestive processes to smaller molecules such as peptides and subsequently amino-acids. It is very unlikely that ingesting whole collagen will survive digestion and then travel in the bloodstream to the skin in high enough quantities to make any meaningful change to the skin's structure or function. • Collagen is made in your skin cells and it requires Vitamin C to do it. Vitamin C is a normal skin constituent that is found at high levels in the skin. So you do not need to waste money on collagen supplements, instead load yourself up with foods rich in vitamin c or vitamin c supplements…..it is cheaper and more effective. . . . . . #Collagen #VitaminC #HilarySays #SkincareAddict #TheScienceOfBeauty #CosmeticsBlog #Trichologist #CosmeticDoctor #CosmeticScientist #BeautyExpert #CosmeticScience #Skincare #SkincareBlog #BeautyScience #SkincareInLagos #BeautyInLagos #Beauty #Blogger #BeautyBlogger #SkincareTips #BBlogger #Lagos #Nigeria #SkincareCommunity #SkincareJunkie #SkincareRegime

  • Well said!!! Repost @naturalnigerian ・・・ As consumers, the difference between ORGANIC (a standardized, certifiable term) and NATURAL (not standardized) may not be clear. But it is important to make that distinction. . . . On a raw material level, Organic means that the ingredients have been grown and processed a certain way. It means that there has been a certification process and a certificate issued to allow that ingredient be called organic. There are many rules before one can claim that they have an organic PRODUCT. One of such is the amount of organic ingredients that have been used. Nigeria has no body that verifies organic cosmetics. Remember that even the organic agriculture space is relatively new. . . . NATURAL products and ingredients have a different set of standards which a lot less stringent than the organic standards. Some are laid out in ISO 16128-1:2016. A relatively new standard to meet the demands of our newish industry. This standard is in contention though since it allows the use of ingredients made from GMOs and those that originate from petrochemicals. Associations like NATRUE also lay out guidelines for the natural industry. . . . Not to get too technical, next time someone is selling you something that is supposed to be organic, you should ask questions to ensure that they are not just tying to appeal to you on an emotional level. . . . Last thing, there is no drama here. We are not shaking any tables. Just educating the public and we spoke to many of our industry colleagues (especially those that have the word organic in their business name) about our intention to post this. . . . #naturalnigerian #organic #TheScienceOfBeauty #CosmeticsBlog #Trichologist #CosmeticDoctor #CosmeticScientist #BeautyExpert #CosmeticScience #Skincare #SkincareBlog #BeautyScience #SkincareInLagos #BeautyInLagos #Beauty #Blogger #BeautyBlogger #SkincareTips #BBlogger #Lagos #Nigeria #SkincareCommunity #SkincareJunkie #SkincareRegime #SkincareAddict #ILoveSkincare

  • U.F.O Ultra-Clarifying Acne Treatment is one of Sunday Riley’s staple products. Retailing at $88 dollars for a 35ml bottle, it claims to treat and prevent acne/blackheads and clear congested pores. It states that its key ingredient is 1.5% Salicylic Acid. It also claims to smooth the appearance of lines and wrinkles. • This treatment oil has some very good antioxidant oils, which can help soothe and product the skin from free radical damage (one of the main causes of premature aging). For example, Milk Thistle, which has the highest concentration in this product, is made up of Silymarin, which has shown to have anti-carcinogenic effects against UV radiation. Although topical application of antioxidants helps reduce free-radical damage to the skin, the results aren’t going to make you look years younger so I’m not very sure about its claim to smooth the appearance of lines and wrinkles. • It also contains anti-microbial oils like Black Cumin Seed oil and Tea Tree Oil, which have been proven to reduce acne lesions. • Although it contains some very good oils, there a few problematic oils in there like Neroli Oil which is a great antioxidant but can also be a skin sensitizer/irritant as it is has fragrance components. This isn’t great news if you have sensitive skin. • The other problem is that for Salicylic acid to work optimally, it has to be at the right pH (below 4). Unfortunately, you can’t determine the pH of this product because it is a mixture of oils (there has to be water in the product to determine its pH). This means that it is uncertain if salicylic acid can actually function in this product (I strongly feel it wont be effective). • All in all, this is a decent product. If you’re buying it for the beneficial oils in it, it’s not a bad option but I definitely won’t be buying it because of the Salicylic Acid it claims to have. . . . . . #SundayRiley #ProductReview #HilarySays #TheScienceOfBeauty #CosmeticsBlog #Trichologist #CosmeticDoctor #CosmeticScientist #BeautyExpert #CosmeticScience #Skincare #SkincareBlog #BeautyScience #SkincareInLagos #BeautyInLagos #Beauty #Blogger #BeautyBlogger #SkincareTips #SkincareCommunity #SkincareJunkie #SkincareAddict

  • I’m a little emotional this morning....please forgive me. Hilary Says is about honesty and transparency so I feel I can be open about how I feel personally (it won’t happen often 😂). This month has been nothing short of amazing! Actually, the entire year has been nothing short of amazing. • I moved back to Nigeria 6 years ago without a clear plan, leaving a stable job/life in the UK....at the time, it was an insane thing to do. When I moved back, the cosmetic industry as I know it, in terms of lab work, research & development, innovation barely existed (still doesn’t), so I felt I was screwed. For years, I struggled to find my feet; some days I was tempted to move back to the UK, but I stuck through the down times because I’m a fighter (thankful for that). • I live, eat, breath, sleep cosmetics...it’s my life....it’s what gives me joy....it’s my passion! I’m not quite where I planned/want to be but I have definitely made progress. I’m glad that in my own little way, I am making impact. I still have a lot of work to do but I’m taking it one step out at a time and stepping out of my comfort zone. • Thank you all for always pushing and encouraging me, thank you for the support. I get so many messages from people saying how much they love what I do and how proud they are of me....I truly appreciate all those messages! Soon enough, I’m going to pick someone/few people I can pour into because I’m now so overwhelmed, I can’t do this all by myself 😩 • This is just to encourage someone out there - keep pushing, don’t give up and it will all be worth it in the end. ❤️❤️❤️ • Back to regular programming next week! More reviews and educative posts, I just need to rest a little 😁 . . . . . . #HilarySays #TheScienceOfBeauty #CosmeticsBlog #Trichologist #CosmeticDoctor #CosmeticScientist #BeautyExpert #CosmeticScience #Skincare #SkincareBlog #BeautyScience #SkincareInLagos #BeautyInLagos #Beauty #Blogger #BeautyBlogger #SkincareTips #BBlogger #Lagos #Nigeria #SkincareCommunity #SkincareJunkie #SkincareRegime #SkincareAddict #ILoveSkincare
