    The number one beauty must-have this season is a clear, healthy, glow. Vogue, commenting on the fall runway trend for dewy skin, suggested getting more sleep and a better moisturizer. But it may take a little more than that to get that polished natural glow.


    Expect to see a surge of products designed to give you a “radiant look”. But beauty mavens and ladies who lunch (on organic salad and Detox juices) have a new answer to keeping almost angelic glow; Beauty supplements that boost your collagen and give you a glow. A clear, radiant complexion is the new status symbol.


    According to Town & Country, the SoulCycle Set in tony Connecticut can’t get enough of such elixirs as Reverseage Collagen Booster. We reviewed Reverseage’s Immunity Booster a year or so ago http://www.dolcedolce.com/?tag=natural-immune-support. Skin supplement and collagen boosters in particular have been popular in the last few years. One of my favourites is LAC Taut Gold Standard Collagen MaReverseageCollagenBoostersks and LAC Taut Collagen Drink from Japan. The drink and the mask are designed to improve “skin’s elasticity and strength reduce sagging as well as fine lines,” according to the company.


    The paper masks which are sold separately are impregnated with hydrolyzed marine collagen that has been broken down into tiny Nano-sized molecules so that they can be easily absorbed. The formula also contains squalene and hyaluronic acid. Squalene is an excellent natural moisturizer that protects skin from damage. Hyaluronic acid attracts and seals moisture into the skin. The mask also contains alpha hydroxyl acid (AHA) in the form of citric acid. I regularly use these types of paper masks from Korea and Japan.


    I really like the LAC Taut Gold Standard Collagen Infusion Mask. It left my face moist and refreshed. It is an effective pick-me-up before aOmegaBoostMangon evening out. After using it your face will look very smooth and poreless. It will have that dewy glow that is the “new must-have”.


    The masks come in a box of five for $50, which makes them $10 each. The effects are temporary but it is astonishing how these masks can make fine lines seem to disappear as skin is instantly plumped. I always traveled with collagen masks. They are my secret weapon.


    According to the company, “LAC Taut Collagen Drink is a proprietary collagen formula that contains 13,000 mg dose of Rapid Delivery System Premium low molecular weight collagen derived from fish”. It also contains Shark Cartilage, DNA, Hyaluronic Acid, Coenzyme Q10, as well as Vitamins C & E. According to my research there is some scientific basis behind the ingredients in the LAC Taut drink. There are several new studies that show high concentrations of Collagen peptides, such as in the taut formula, can improve skin’s firmness, luminosity, and reduce the appearance of fine lines. The ingredients in LAC Taut Collagen drink have been shown to also make hair and nails stronger.


    The benefits of collagen supplements for facial firming are controversial, but support for supplements is growing with research. Be sure to use sunblock daily. Excessive exposure to the sun destroys collagen and causes skin sagging.

    And don’t forget fish oil for young, glowing skin. Salmon, caviar, and many other fatty fish have been proven to help skin recover from environmental damage. Fish oil also gives you a glow! I love Nordic Naturals. It is pure and very high quality. I trust it. As a long-time beauty editor, I consider it a very important beauty food. I take Nordic Naturals Omega Boost in Tropical Mango. I take a just a teaspoon a day and it tastes so good. Even though I eat some type of fish almost every day I still like to take this.
