Do you know how to feed your collagen production?

Here at Mikel Kristi we know a thing or two about what is needed to build, repair , and enhance collagen production on all levels. We believe in a multi faceted approach to looking and feeling our best.

Lucky for us, there is one property that enhances collagen production at an amazing rate. When applied topically and taken internally, this vitamin helps to restructure the protein matrix that keeps your skin healthy, boyant, and resilient. That property is none other than  Vitamin C.


We know… Vitamin C doesn’t have the same alluring title as some of the newest anti-aging headliners, but make no mistake, it's a repairative powerhouse when it comes to protecting your skin from more advanced signs of aging. Specifically, when it comes to helping correct and inhibit brown spots and splotches due to unprotected sun exposure, as well as increasing the skin and body’s ability to create collagen.

NOT ALL VITAMIN C IS CREATED EQUAL!

Here are a few of the finer highlights when using this potent anti-ager in your daily routine.

  • Your body cannot produce Vitamin C on its own, so it is vital that you both apply it topically and ingest it internally on a daily basis, enabling the collagen all over your body to reap the benefits of easier repair and regeneration.
  • Vitamin C is easily degraded when exposed to the environment. That means a product may contain Vitamin C, but it will be close to useless unless it is protected from the elements prior to application. We address and resolve this issue by using a cutting edge delivery system in our products containing Vitamin C, which encapsulates the molecules in a lipid base for protection and increased absorption by the skin.
  • The best time of day to apply Vitamin C is in the morning. This is due to its ability to protect the skin throughout the day from possible damage caused by sun exposure. Coupled with a high-grade zinc oxide based sunscreen (and mineral makeup if you choose), provides you with a hefty level of protection from the damaging rays of the sun.


Starting your day with a healthy dose of Vitamin C inside the body and out is one of the best ways to  protect your cells, regenerate your collagen production, and ensure vibrant healthy skin on every level. Our C Radiance Moisturizer, and our reformulated, soon-to-be-released Vital C Repair Serum have you covered with the most powerful and absorbable form of topical Vitamin C on the market. Apply daily and you can rest assured that your skin is getting the nutrition, revitalization, and protection it needs!

The Skin Type Myth
The Skin Type Myth

by Bold Commerce Collaborator January 20, 2020

Does Skin Type Matter? 
In reality, everyone’s skin has the same anatomy, and therefore the same basic needs to keep skin young and healthy.  So, knowing your skin type (oily, dry, or combination) really doesn’t matter when choosing skincare… as long as you meet these needs.  
Any skincare product regimen should address these 3 basic needs:

  1. Natural exfoliation
  2. Restoration of collagen 
  3. Protection from environmental damage.

Psychological Obstacles To Aesthetic Intervention

by Christy Hall January 13, 2020

I want to bring to light the many stigmas attached to the use of cosmetic intervention as a whole. The idea of beauty in our culture has been warped and misguided by big beauty and fashion marketing for many years, and I am happy that a more inclusive mindset is starting to take hold in our culture that honors everyone’s uniqueness. You can see this in the popularity of tattoos, vibrant hair colors and different body types being embraced and well represented. And cosmetic intervention is no different than the aforementioned choices.

Bioactive Ingredients? What are they and why are they important?

by Christy Hall January 06, 2020

We all want healthy, radiant, youthful skin. Many of us buy excessive amounts of skincare products looking for the magic, only to become disappointed when they don’t see the results we crave.  I’ve been there myself and really it was that dissatisfaction with my own skin that led me into the field of cosmetic dermatology and aesthetics. I was a product whore in my late 20’s and yet my skin was still dry, dull, and discolored. The final straw was when wrinkles started appearing at age 30.  What was I doing wrong? I had talked to a dermatologist, I had read every article in beauty magazines that I could, and I tried every over the counter product I could get my hands on, yet nothing seemed to give me the results I wanted. I did not understand the issue until I started my career in cosmetic dermatology.
