Slow beauty with collagen

Slow beauty med collagen - Vild Nord

What slow beauty?

You have probably come across skincare products that promise the moon and stars when it comes to how quickly you can see an effect after using the product. Some products almost promise a change after the very first use.

This has sometimes resulted in the belief that if a skincare product doesn't work immediately, it probably doesn't have any effect, and it is therefore put back on the shelf. We almost expect skincare to work as quickly as an Instagram filter, but that's not how skincare works.

It's actually not surprising that many of us want skincare to work here and now. The selection is vast, and the prices can be incredibly appealing, often resulting in us having more products at home than necessary. This doesn't only apply to skincare products – the fashion industry has developed in the same way. On social media and the internet in general, we are bombarded daily with ads, offers, and news.

But what is slow beauty then?

Slow beauty is about taking the time to care for yourself with care and consideration, and building a beauty routine that focuses on long-term care rather than quick, immediate solutions.

Slow beauty

Slow beauty can actually be described as a holistic approach to beauty, where all aspects of life are considered. Although it concerns your beauty, it is far from the only focus of slow beauty. With an emphasis on both skincare and your overall well-being, it encompasses everything from sleep to what you eat and drink.

In many ways, slow beauty is a lifestyle rather than 'just' skincare. It's something you choose to do for yourself and your body over a longer period, perhaps even throughout your entire life if you remain committed.

A key aspect of slow beauty is valuing and respecting the body's natural needs and cycles. Therefore, it is important to listen to your body, give it rest, eat healthily, and choose products that work with its natural processes. Reduce your consumption and waste, and instead choose a few, high-quality products that suit your needs and the life cycle you are in right now.

When selecting food, supplements, and other products, the slow beauty approach also emphasizes ethics and sustainability. This creates a more conscious and responsible consumer culture, where beauty is not just about appearance but also about the choices we make throughout our lives.

Ultimately, slow beauty is about creating a balance between inner and outer beauty, taking time to care for yourself, and choosing products and routines that are in harmony with your body's needs. It is a holistic and sustainable approach to beauty, aiming to improve well-being and health in the long term.

Benefits of embracing slow beauty

Choosing a slow beauty approach to your skincare will give your skin and body time to fully benefit from the care products you use. By selecting natural and pure ingredients, you can ensure that your skin is nourished in a healthy and gentle manner. Additionally, the increased focus over time allows you to delve into what you truly need and helps you understand which products and routines work best for you.

Taking the time to pamper yourself can reduce stress and enhance your sense of well-being. Slow beauty is not only about external beauty but also about inner balance and harmony. By living in the moment and performing your care routines slowly and mindfully, you can create a meditative experience that promotes mental relaxation and emotional calm.

Slow beauty is also a sustainable approach that values quality over quantity. By choosing fewer, but more effective products, you can minimize waste and support a more eco-friendly lifestyle. This approach allows you to build a deeper connection with the products you use and understand how they impact your skin and well-being.

Collagen og slow beauty

Collagen & slow beauty

Marine collagen is a perfect component of slow beauty due to its natural origin and health benefits, promoting long-term beauty and well-being throughout life.

Marine collagen is a protein extracted from fish skin, in our case from the large North Atlantic cod. This makes it a natural ingredient that supports the body's own processes. The process is called upcycling, where by-products are used to create a new, higher-value product. Read more in the blog post "Upcycling of Fish Skin".

One of the greatest benefits of marine collagen is its high bioavailability. This means the body can easily absorb and utilize it, resulting in optimal results. Marine collagen is known to improve skin elasticity, reduce wrinkles and fine lines. With regular use, it can help build and strengthen the skin's structure, leading to increased natural beauty over time.

This long-term care and strengthening of skin health is at the heart of slow beauty. Instead of chasing quick fixes that only provide temporary results, marine collagen helps to fortify the skin from within. It works in harmony with the body's natural processes, making it a gentle and effective way to improve the skin's appearance over time.

Marine collagen from Vild Nord fits well into slow beauty due to its sustainable profile. The Hydro series is made from MSC-certified collagen and a production process where by-products are fully utilized. By using by-products from the fishing industry, marine collagen contributes to a more sustainable use of natural resources.

Integrating marine collagen into a slow beauty routine is simple and practical. It can be taken as a dietary supplement in the form of powder or capsules, making it easy to incorporate into daily life.

Overall, marine collagen is an ideal ingredient in slow beauty as it combines naturalness, sustainability, and effective results. By choosing marine collagen from Vild Nord as part of your beauty routine, you can achieve healthier skin while supporting a more conscious lifestyle. 

Pro age og slow beauty

Slow beauty & pro-age

Have you read our blog post about pro-age? If not, now you have a really good reason to. Pro-age and slow beauty uniquely complement each other in their approaches to beauty and life.

Pro-ageing is a positive approach to ageing, where age and the changes it brings are embraced as much as possible. Ageing is a natural part of life, and with a healthy and active approach, it can be supported with a pro-age mindset.

Read our interview with Vild Nord co-founder, Loa Gitz, right here to learn more about what pro-age is and how Loa lives according to this approach to age and beauty.

Throughout life, our needs for vitamins and minerals change. Therefore, you can benefit from changing your choice of Vild Nord product over time. You might start with our Lemon Marine Collagen, but after several years, Collagen Gold or Collagen Beauty Remedy might better meet your needs. It’s a good idea to listen to your body and its needs and choose a new product accordingly.

Make slow beauty part of your day

Now you know what slow beauty is, the benefits of this approach, and how collagen can be a perfect part of your long-term beauty routine. But how do you make collagen and slow beauty a part of your daily life? We will try to help you with some good tips that everyone can follow:

Prioriter din tid

Prioritise your time

Consider when you have time to take your collagen supplement without it becoming a stress factor in your routine. Perhaps the morning suits you best, when many people take their other supplements. The most important thing is to choose a time when you are not rushed and can take it at your own pace.

Vælg naturlige produkter

Choose natural products

Opt for collagen of the highest quality, free from unnecessary additives, and preferably MSC-certified. This way, you get both an effective and sustainable product in one.

Reducer antallet af produkter

Reduce the number of products 

It's easy to end up using many products for the same purpose, whether they're skincare products or supplements. Instead, try to reduce the number of products and stick to a few, but effective ones. This way, you can also take the time to notice the difference in your body.

Kvalitet over kvantitet

Quality over quantity

When purchasing new skincare products, choose high-quality ones rather than a multitude of less effective options. They might be a bit more expensive, but there's usually a good reason for it, whether it's the quality of the ingredients or special certifications.

Husk at være tålmodig

Be patient

Rome wasn't built in a day, and similarly, your skin won't transform in hours or a few days. Slow beauty takes time and doesn't provide instant results. It's a slower process, but with patience, you can enjoy long-term benefits. For example, collagen from Vild Nord typically shows results after 8-12 weeks.
