It is said that age is just a state of mind, but looking youthful certainly takes more than a positive outlook. 

Taking care of your skin and yourself, will keep you looking and feeling young.
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.

Bye-bye Botox. The new beauty secret on everyone’s lips right now is collagen. There’s always been pressure to be ageless in Hollywood, but today’s celebrities are nixing the usual topical remedies and invasive treatments in favor of collagen of the consumable variety. Collagen drinks have been popular in Japan for years, but they have started generating more buzz among women in the rest of the world, including the rich and famous.

What does it take to achieve glamorous looks and a youthful complexion worthy of the red carpet? Celebrities often have access to a team of hair and makeup pros who can glam them up at a moment’s notice, but they also cling to their fair share of anti-aging beauty secrets – collagen drinks being one of them.

The likes of Drew Barrymore, Lady Gaga, and the Kardashian sisters swear by these nutrient-rich beauty drinks. Below are some of the reasons why more and more celebrities are incorporating collagen drinks into their routine.

1.   Repair, strengthen, and rejuvenate skin with collagen

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body. It is a major structural protein, making up about 75% of our skin. Skin with healthy collagen levels looks smooth, plump, and youthful. After the age of 25, however, collagen production slows and you start to lose approximately 1.5% of your collagen each year. The breakdown of collagen causes the skin to get thinner and leads to the formation of wrinkles.

Collagen gives the skin its strength and smooth appearance, so it’s crucial to protect and promote collagen growth. The active collagen fragments in collagen drinks are absorbed into the bloodstream and distributed throughout the body and to the skin. Skin cells called fibroblasts produce collagen. 

Collagen drinks containing hydrolyzed collagen promote collagen synthesis by stimulating these fibroblasts to produce new collagen. Clinical studies shows ingesting 10,000mg a day for a period of 8 weeks help to increase skin thickness and collagen density, reduce wrinkles. See Clinical studies.


2.   Hydrolyzed collagen can be absorbed into the bloodstream, and stay in the dermis of our skin

In their natural state, collagen molecules are too big to penetrate the skin’s surface, so the effectiveness of many topical collagen products is limited. Collagen molecules are also too large for your body to absorb when ingested. The process of hydrolysis breaks collagen down into fragments that are small enough for your digestive enzymes to break down completely. Hydrolyzed collagen consists of small peptides with low molecular weight that are easily digested, absorbed, and distributed throughout the body.

 While traditional collagen serums only penetrate the top layer of the skin, hydrolyzed collagen is more easily absorbed by the body and can thus boost collagen in the deeper layers of the skin. A 1999 study published in the peer-reviewed medical journal Arthritis & Rheumatology showed that orally administered hydrolyzed collagen was digested and more than 90% of it was absorbed within 6 hours, with measurable accumulation in the skin and cartilage.


3.   Collagen drinks are better than powder or pills

Collagen supplements come in all forms, including tablets, capsules, chewables, softgels, powders, and even marshmallows. The problem with collagen pills and powders is that they could pass through your digestive system without being broken down. Pills are also hard for some people to swallow. Moreover, they typically contain fillers, binders, stabilizers, and chelating agents, making them less potent than liquid supplements.

The secret to success with collagen supplementation is taking collagen in liquid form. Collagen drinks are absorbed into your bloodstream faster than other supplements because the collagen is already dissolved in the liquid. Collagen drinks are also a lot more convenient than pills and powders. They come ready-made in small bottles that you can easily carry in your purse, so you can drink them on the go. No messes or mixing necessary.  Additionally, collagen drinks are a lot more potent than other collagen supplements, so you can get a higher dose of collagen.


4.   The higher the potency, the better

While there is no recommended daily allowance for collagen, high-end supplements typically contain more than 5,000mg of collagen. For maximum results, drinking a collagen supplement with at least 7,000mg of hydrolyzed collagen is recommended. Anything less than that simply isn’t potent enough. LAC Taut® Premium Collagen drink contains 13,000mg of hydrolyzed collagen per 1.7oz bottle,  which is two to six times the concentration of other collagen drink brands.


5.   There’s more to collagen drink benefits than meets the eye

In the first few weeks of taking a liquid collagen supplement, you might not notice any physical differences in your skin, but skin readings would suggest otherwise. Skin graphs showing the facial images of a 60 year old woman who drank one bottle of LAC Taut® Premium Collagen every night for the first 8 nights and then every other night after that showed a noticeable increase in skin thickness and hydration levels after just four weeks.

Drinking high-potency marine hydrolyzed collagen is also shown to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Several controlled clinical studies have been performed that prove the efficacy and benefits of collagen peptides in the reduction of wrinkles. A study conducted by Rousselot SAS France showed a 30% decrease in the formation of deep wrinkles after supplementation with 10g of hydrolyzed collagen. In another study published in the journal Clinical Interventions in Aging, daily supplementation with 1g of hydrolyzed collagen for 12 weeks led to a significant reduction in skin dryness and wrinkles. The authors of the study suggested that dietary supplementation with hydrolyzed collagen can physiologically counteract natural and photo-aging processes. Hydrolyzed collagen is an important weapon in the fight against wrinkles and aging skin.


So the question is "Can we drink our wrinkles away?"

Yes we can!

Collagen supplements and skincare products derive collagen from four main sources: bovine (cows), porcine (pigs), chicken collagen and fish (marine) collagen. Bovine, porcine and chicken collagen are cheaper and more common than fish (marine) collagen.

Collagen from cows, pigs and chickens are extracted from their skin, tendons and cartilage. They are mainly Type II collagen (for joints and tendons) and very little Type I.

Fish collagen, also known as ‘ marine collagen ’, is extracted from either the meat or scales of cold sea fish and is primarily Type I and Type III collagen. 

Fish collagen has been shown to have superior “ bioavailability ”: the rate at which it is absorbed into the blood stream through our intestinal wall.  This means that fish (marine) collagen enters the bloodstream more quickly than other types of collagen, so it is the best source of collagen for your skin. 

In fact, fish (marine) collagen is up to 1.5 times more absorbent than bovine, porcine or chicken collagen, because of its optimum (low) molecular weight. Fish (marine) collagen is also the right type of collagen (Type I&III) needed for the building blocks of our skin. 

Because Marine Collagen is extracted from fish, it is free from Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) (“ Mad Cow Disease ”), Hoof-and-Mouth disease and Bird Viruses.
