I Struggled With Dark Spots For Years & This Finally Cleared My Skin

I like to say my skin care routine doesn’t stop at the bathroom sink. After applying the usual suspects (cleanser, a sweep of toner, then my vitamin C and E serum, moisturizer, and sunscreen), I head to the kitchen for my all-time favorite morning sip: In a blender, I combine two spoonfuls of mbg’s collagen powder in chocolate with half a frozen banana, a spoonful of almond butter, a teaspoon of maca powder, some Greek yogurt, ice cubes, and almond milk. 

The result? A frothy, chocolate-nut butter confection that tastes like a treat. Imagine a frosty milkshake, only it’s good for your skin.* And in my case, it’s good for fading dark spots, too.

Now, I truly understand what it means when people say their skin glows. (Trust: The radiance is very much real). Of course, I still get the occasional spot—I’m human!—but with my new morning repertoire, I no longer feel a sense of dread when a mark makes its way to my jawline. I’m now well equipped to tackle those spots head-on—all it took was nourishing my skin from the inside out.*
