Key takeaways:

  • If you are only going to take one Bend Beauty product, we recommend Renew + Protect as it provides the greatest overall benefit in one product
  • Marine Collagen + Co-Factors and Renew + Protect are designed to work synergistically for best possible results
  • Think of Renew + Protect as preventing damage in the skin and Marine Collagen + Co-Factors as promoting repair.

We often get questions from our followers about which Bend products we recommend they start with, or which one is right for them based on their specific skin concerns. So let’s dive in.

Without question, we recommend that everyone start by taking Renew + Protect. If you’re only going to take one Bend product, this is the one for you. This is a foundational product for a fantastic skincare routine, as it provides the greatest overall benefit in one product. Not only does this product improve skin hydration, elasticity and firmness, roughness and redness (from skin inflammation) and provide antioxidants for skin health – but it also is clinically-proven to reduce skin sensitivity to UV-induced sunburn. The active ingredients in Renew + Protect work synergistically to produce optimal results in your skin. From omega-3 and omega 6 fatty acids, to powerful antioxidants like lutein and zeaxanthin, think of Renew + Protect as your superpower skin health elixir. Again, we always recommend starting with this product, to give yourself the best possible foundation for all other products to work even better.

This brings us to Marine Collagen + Co-Factors! Collagen production in our bodies begins to decline in our 20s, but new research shows that collagen peptides can stimulate cells to increase collagen production. Collagen is essential in providing structure to the skin. The decline in collagen production leads to skin laxity, fine lines, and wrinkles. Ingesting Marine Collagen gives your body the boost it needs to formulate collagen, helping you to maintain healthy skin, hair, and nails. Bend Marine Collagen + Co-Factors is specially formulated with collagen co-factors (vitamin C and silicon) which ensure that the collagen you’re building is healthy and resilient.

These two products are in fact, designed to work together synergistically; think of Renew + Protect as preventing damage in the skin and Marine Collagen + Co-Factors as promoting repair. We like to think of Renew + Protect as the foundation, and Marine Collagen + Co-Factors as the beauty boost. So while you may or may not take both, you certainly will see your best results when you combine these powerful products.
