My amazing Mom
I would like to introduce you to this beautiful woman in the picture - my mom. She is seventy-six years old, healthy and radiant.

Look at her skin! Mom has beautiful skin. And I promise you, she has never had anything done to it - no lift, no surgery, no filler, no needles. In fact, although mom started drinking Taut  Premium Collagen since I started the business, she has received even more compliments. The truth is, she has taken really good care of herself her whole life.

 What are her secrets? Some of them, you probably have heard from your own mom, but stick with me:
TIP #1: Stay Out of the Sun
Bu Yao Shai Tai Yang. "Minimize sun exposure." It is common in Asia for women to carry an umbrella to shield themselves from the sun. They don't necessarily wear sunblock, but they wear long sleeves and pants to protect their skin. This is especially true of women of my mother's generation. I used to be a little embarrassed and sometimes irritated with her "fear" of sun. But I get it now: first do no harm!

TIP #2: Use good products
Mom uses good products. She has dry skin and is very diligent with applying cream. Now, this is her special trick: she doesn't just slather on the products in a quick one-two like most women do, she takes her time to pat them in. Right around her jaw line and cheek area, she gives herself gentle slaps in an upward motion. "This is very important to keep your skin elastic!"
TIP #3: Don't forget your neck!
I should add that mom places great emphasis on her neck area. Mom says that is the one part of the skin that younger women neglect and that is the place that will give a woman's age away. What does she do? She often gives it a pat and lift - to exercise the neck muscle to keep them toned.
TIP #4: Drink less coffee! Drink water !
This is self explanatory, perhaps your mom nags you on this point too. But she has a Chinese spin on this water secret: drink warm or room temperature water, never iced water. The Chinese believe iced water would chill the body and introduce ill humor into our body. There is no scientific evidence for it, but for a long time there was no scientific evidence that acupuncture works. They have evidence for it now.

TIP #5: Eat till you are just 80% full
This has been passed down from my grandmother to my mom. My grandmother believes in a fixed routine. 6 - 12 - 6 . Everyday without change, she would have her breakfast at 6am, her lunch at 12pm and dinner at 6pm. No matter how good the food is or how good they taste, she would always eat just enough but never too full. Somehow this has been passed down to my mom too.  She swears by it. They both have their figure to show for it.

Last Note

My Mom is beautiful even though she has gone through great adversities.
Beauty is not just skin deep. I think that part of her beauty comes from the depth of kindness within her....

Do you admire your mom’s ageless beauty?

Are you concern with thinning hair or hair loss? You are not alone. 

Besides wrinkles and sagging skin, hair loss and thinning hair are  the biggest concern for women and men. 

What you should know is, everyone sheds hair to some degree, but if you feel like your hair is shedding at an abnormal rate, you might be suffering from hair loss.

Contrary to popular belief, hair loss is not a disease that only affects the guys. Women actually make up 40% of hair loss sufferers, according to the American Hair Loss Association . Hair loss can be absolutely devastating for women. Losing your crowning glory may make you feel unattractive and hurt your self-esteem.

Collagen drinks are a boon for hair loss sufferers who are looking for ways to combat shedding and grow thicker, fuller hair. 

Collagen production in your body starts to decline as you age, and this makes your hair more vulnerable to breakage and loss. Taking a collagen supplement can help to replace lost collagen and increase your body’s hair-building proteins.


The Difference Between Hair Shedding and Hair Loss

 It’s normal to shed between 50 and 100 hairs per day. If you’ve been noticing more hairs on your hairbrush or pillow than usual, you might be suffering from telogen effluvium, which is characterized by excessive hair shedding. There are various factors that can cause telogen effluvium , including the following:

  • High stress levels
  • Giving birth
  • Losing 20 or more pounds
  • Undergoing surgery
  • Recovering from an illness, particularly one accompanied by a high fever

In most cases, your hair starts to grow back a few months after the stressful event has passed. Within six to nine months, the hair regains its usual thickness. This type of hair shedding is different from hair loss, which occurs when your hair stops growing altogether. The most common causes of hair loss include the following:

Some medications and treatments

  • Genetic predisposition
  • Harsh hair care products
  • Hairstyles that pull on the hair
  • Poor nutrition

If you’re suffering from hair loss, your hair will not grow back until you address the underlying cause. 

The good news is, you can  help prevent and treat hair loss by making a collagen supplement a part of your daily regimen.


The Connection Between Collagen and Hair Loss

 In February of 2016, a team of researchers in Japan discovered that decreasing collagen levels near hair follicle stem cells is linked to hair loss. The lack of this particular type of collagen, type XVII collagen, leads to the damage of hair follicle DNA. Scientists observed this phenomenon in mice that were 18 months old, which is the age at which mice start to lose their hair. Older mice have fewer, thinner hair follicles than younger mice. The study showed that hair loss was less common in aging mice that continued to produce collagen.

In mice that lack type XVII collagen, the damaged stem cells turn into skin cells and are sloughed off like dandruff. This leads to hair follicle shrinkage and hair loss. Scientists believe that the same mechanism applies to humans.

In a separate study of the human scalp, the Japanese researchers found that the hair follicles of women in their 50s and older were smaller than the hair follicles of women in their 30s and 40s. Scientists are excited about these findings because it could help them find the cure for baldness.


Collagen: The Secret Ingredient Offering Hope for Hair Loss

Collagen is well known for helping to restore a youthful complexion , but its benefits are more than skin deep. Collagen is a naturally occurring protein in the body that is essential to healthy skin, hair, and nails. Collagen is the building block of the hair and surrounds each strand, so it is key to your hair’s quality and structurally reinforces it. 

Hair is primarily made up of keratin protein , which your body produces most effectively when the blood supplies amino acids. To increase the supply of amino acids in your blood, you can take collagen supplements, which are absorbed into your small intestine. Hair follicle cells use these amino acids to produce keratin protein.

Collagen also increases blood circulation in your body. An increase in blood flow to your scalp is a great way to promote scalp and hair health. It ensures that your hair follicles get the nutrients they need and helps your hair grow faster.

As you age, your hair may become dry and coarse. Collagen can be used to treat dry, brittle hair by increasing the hair’s moisture levels and repairing split ends. Collagen can also reduce the appearance of gray hairs.

Anyone who’s interested in maintaining a youthful complexion and reducing wrinkles has likely heard of collagen supplements. Collagen is a protein that serves as a key building block in connective animal tissue. It is the most abundant protein in the human body.

The dermis, or inner layer of the skin, is made up of mostly collagen, which gives the skin its resilience, strength, and texture. Aging leads to the breakdown of collagen, causing wrinkles, sagging skin, and rough texture. By the time we reach 30 years of age, we stop producing collagen and our body loses collagen at a rate of 1-2% each year.

There are two types of supplements that stimulate collagen growth for skin: collagen builders consisting of key essential amino acids and ingestible hydrolyzed collagen.
