Taking care of your skin and yourself, will keep you looking and feeling young.
Aging skin is a part of life, to be sure, but there are many skin care tips that can help you to care for your self, and your skin, slowing this process and preserving the youthful firmness and glow that characterize beautiful, young skin.
1) Take Care of Your Skin
It may seem like the obvious answer, but having a good skincare routine can really help to fight the signs of aging. Cleansing and moisturizing the skin, as well as protecting it from the sun with sunscreen, can make a significant difference in the amount of wrinkles, fine lines and dark spots that appear as you age. All skin ages, so care for all of your skin, paying close attention to your hands, neck, eyes and lips, as these are the areas that begin to show signs of aging first.
2) Moisturize Me!
Nourishing the skin with moisture has a major effect on its condition, especially when it comes to aging. Dry skin is damaged skin, and damaged skin looks older. Choosing the right moisturizer may seem difficult, but going natural is always a safe solution. Oil moisturizers, such as virgin coconut oil, nourish the skin and add a layer of protection. In fact, virgin coconut oil has antibacterial properties as well, providing a layer of protection for the skin against bacteria that may cause breakouts or inflammation.
3) Take Your Vitamins ... And Wear Them, Too!
Antioxidants are one of the most important weapons in the arsenal doing battle with the signs of aging, fighting the negative effects of free radicals including environmental damage and UV rays. Free radicals are primarily responsible for wrinkles, age spots, lose of firmness and elasticity, even bags under the eyes.

Vitamin C is considered the most potent and powerful antioxidant, whether you eat it, drink it, or put it directly on to the skin. Boosting the immune system and stimulating collagen production, Vitamin C helps to improve exfoliation, decrease inflammation, and brighten the skin naturally.
4) Tea: The Fountain of Youth?
Another popular antioxidant is tea, specifically green or white tea. Drinking green tea, or preferably the less-processed white tea, gives your entire body a major antioxidant boost. Green and white teas contain EGCG, a powerful antioxidant that increases the rate of cell turnover, renewing the skin and improving its texture and overall health. You can also mix green tea powder into brewed white tea and make a topical mask, which is a great way to give your skin a delicious dose of wrinkle-fighting antioxidants.
5) Off With the Old, In With the Youthful
Exfoliation is one of the most important elements of a good skincare routine, refreshing the skin by removing dead and dull surface cells, allowing the fresh, more youthful layers to emerge. Exfoliated skin also absorbs moisturizers much better. A good exfoliating scrub need not be rough or too abrasive, as you don't wish to damage your skin. Natural exfoliants, including oatmeal, sugar, and finely-ground walnut shells can gently remove dead skin without being too abrasive. A homemade scrub of sugar and lemon juice adds the benefit of alpha-hydroxy acid, as well as Vitamin C, so you get a does of antioxidants as well.
6) Caring For Your Collagen Levels
Collagen is the protein in our skin that keeps it looking plump, firm and youthful. As aging progresses, however, the levels of collagen in the body decrease drastically, leading to tell-tale signs of age such as wrinkles and fine lines, as well as sagging skin. Preserving your collagen levels, as well as stimulating the production of collagen in the skin, can help to keep your skin looking luminous and firm for much longer.

Some natural supplements can help to boost collagen levels. Grape seed extract supplements, for example, protect the existing collagen in the skin by boosting antioxidant levels in the blood. Collagen is very vulnerable to the effects of free radicals, so it is easy to see why antioxidants can be so effective.

Collagen supplements, specifically liquid collagen supplements, are an increasingly popular way of boosting collagen levels in the skin. Used as part of a daily healthy skin routine, collagen drink supplements, such as LAC Taut Premium Collagen , deliver a high concentration of ingestible hydrolyzed collagen to boost your levels, improve collagen production, and firm and strengthen not only the skin, but the hair and nails as well.

Collagen is a large molecule in its natural form, making it too difficult to digest easily and be absorbed through the intestine into the body. Hydrolyzed collagen, on the other hand, has been broken down into smaller molecules, so it is much more digestible and easily absorbed. Taut Premium Collagen delivers a potent shot of this hydrolyzed collagen in drinkable form, allowing you to easily take your supplement and allowing the valuable collagen to quickly make its way to the waiting cells.

Keeping your skin young-looking and healthy does not have to be a major chore. With proper care, and the right nourishment both inside and out, you can even reverse the signs of aging, preserving your skin's beautiful, luminous look for years to come.

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.
