So it’s been two weeks since I started taking the DHC Collagen Beauty 7000 drink from Watsons.
It’s been a fortnight so drinking this has been part of my morning ritual now. DHC advises to drink this every night before bed because skin regeneration occurs mostly at night.
But because it contains muscat juice and thus acid, and I’m gastric-prone, the rep I spoke to said I can also take it in the morning after breakfast. ^^
I actually quite like drinking it! Hikky told me she tried drinking collagen too but she didn’t like the collagen smell but the DHC one is quite fruity and yummeh.
So here’s the changes I’ve noticed in my body. If the rep hadn’t forewarned me of some of the effects I might not have known it was from the drink.
1. Cannot fall asleep quickly for two nights wtf.
The Watsons team warned me this could happen and that it would pass. Usually I fall asleep within five minutes of getting into bed so it was quite a distinctive effect on me.
However, after those two nights, I had no problems sleeping.
2. Instead, before this I used to have a lot of trouble waking up even if I had 9 full hours of uninterrupted sleep. I’d wake up but then feel so sleepy that I’d fall asleep and wake up repeatedly for about an hour usually before I wake up. I’m aware this makes me sound like a sloth wtf. But I started noticing within the past week that when I wake up, I feel quite awake and ready to get up and about without dallying in bed.
I don’t know if this is definitely because of the collagen drink but it’s the only thing I’ve done different these two weeks so it’s a good chance.
3. Feel damn hungry for breakfast
(picture for demo purposes – although I don’t know what I need to demo eating breakfast for wtf)
I’m one of those unhealthy people who skip breakfast – why eat breakfast when you can move straight to lunch wtf. I usually have no appetite in the morning and it’s all I can do to drink a cup of milo. Now I wouldn’t say that I have a raging appetite in the morning but weirdly I do feel like eating, and I eat proper breakfasts now. Consequently, I’m not starving when it’s lunch time, so I eat lighter lunches and don’t feel so heavy and bloated in the afternoon.
3. Skin!! To be honest I don’t feel any big differences . It’s not like I wake up and WAH my skin is lighting up the room wtf. It’s probably because my skin is still relatively young and elastic. If I were say, 40 years old maybe there would be a more obvious difference?
That said, there are small changes I noticed, only in the last few days when we were in Penang for Christmas. Firstly I noticed that although I was using the same facial moisturizer, my skin felt VERY STICKY even ten minutes after application. Same for my eye cream. I wondered if I was putting on too much but no wor.
Last time a beautician told me that she could tell how thirsty my skin was by how fast the moisturizer absorbed. Does that mean my skin is less dry now so it absorbs moisture slower?
Also, before if I don’t apply body lotion after shower, my skin will get all itchy and flaky damn gross one. Now if I skip a few days also can. D:
I think that’s an understatement. I now drink enough to go to the bathroom every hour at least. And long car rides now terrify me because I’m worried I might need to go toilet in the middle. Lolol.
It’s possible that drinking all this water is also contributing to my skin’s condition. But I’m happy cos it’s finally done what Mummy Ooi and Fatty failed to do – get me to drink more water.
That’s my two week experience with DHC Collagen Beauty 7000! Imma try for another two weeks and see if there are any other changes.
