New-Shot-1024x768

I’ve tried my fair share of skin-boosting supplements. But I’m always on the hunt for the most innovative goodies that will keep me looking and feeling gorgeous. And just in time to solve my skincare woes, the booming drinkable collagen trend has come to save my skin. Sipping your collagen has been shown to replenish sagging and aging skin with power-boosting vitamin C, hyaluronic acid and of course, collagen.

Cup With Scoop Review, Ingredients: Boost Your Collagen Intake With Sparkle Collagen Peptide Supplement, Drink - Sponsored GIVEAWAY

You may have seen collagen as a key ingredient inside your favorite creams and serums, as it keeps your skin supple and smooth. But now it has become a hot ingredient for your smoothies and shakes, allowing the ingredient to work from the inside out to win the war against aging.

“It contains collagen peptides that have been clinically shown to increase skin’s collagen by up to 60%***. Based on these results, when used over time, Sparkle Collagen might reduce the look of wrinkles,” says Ron Robinson, Cosmetic Chemist/BeautyStat.com Founder

Although anti-aging tactics haven’t been a big skincare concern of mine as of late, it’s never too early to start adding some fine line and wrinkle-busting action to your beauty game! Want something beyond a cream to aid your anti-aging efforts? It’s time to sip some Sparkle Collagen, a one-of-a-kind supplement promising to kick fine lines and wrinkles to the curb.

Made with a unique combination of ingredients, the magic behind this skin must-have lies in the formula made up of VERISOL collagen, citric acid and riboflavin, which combine together to boost the skin’s natural collagen levels, leaving the outer skin layers looking plumper and much smoother.

Bottoms up!

Although some supplements have that chalky taste, this delicious mix has a tasteful orange-citrus-y flavor that can be consumed in a variety of ways. Whether you pour the powder mix into a glass of water, smoothie or cup of yogurt, you can easily consume this easy-to-use supplement for your daily dose of collagen. All you need is just one scoop, and you’re good to go!

I always loved the taste of Tang, so I was able to get this powder inside my daily morning water alongside breakfast. Plus, unlike the bland tasteless supplements of my past, this product is sweetened with natural Stevia, so it’s full of flavor without the added calories. And with an on-the-go appeal, you can pretty much drink this anywhere you want.

I’ve been taking this for almost a week now, and although I haven’t seen immediate results, it’s recommended that users take this for about 4-weeks to start seeing improved skin function and elasticity. Despite my short time trying it, I can say I’ve truly enjoyed adding it to my everyday beauty routine. The sweet taste and low cal appeal has me ditching sweet caffeinated drinks throughout the day. Cheers, to younger-looking skin! Sparkle Collagen Peptide Supplement — Orange Flavor — USD $38.50 for 30 day tub.

***In a clinical study of 114 women between the age of 45 and 65, it was shown that when VERISOL® is taken daily over a 4-week period, the collagen in the skin increased by up to 60%.

Why The New Trend Of The 24 Hour Boob Job "Lunchtime Lift" Is Harmful! Sponsored

You’ve heard the old mantra, try it before you buy it. And while this is probably a smart way to
approach the car buying experience, it may not be the wisest bit of advice when it comes to your body. Dubbed the “lunchtime lift,” the 24-hour boob job just arrived on the market and it’s got everyone talking.

Dr. Norman Rowe, a plastic surgeon based in Manhattan, New York, has developed a technique designed to give women an instant lift in cup sizes — and you can even do it on your lunch break. The procedure, which takes only 20-minutes and costs a whopping $2,500-$3,500, involves using a needle to insert a saline solution directly into the breast tissue. The saline solution is absorbed gradually through the bloodstream and creates a perky bosom for about 24-hours.

The Most Popular Cosmetic Surgery 2014, 2015 Trends: Eyelid Surgery, Fat Transfers, Breast Augmentation

Originally developed so patients could get a feel for how they would look with implants, people
are now requesting this procedure for a quick pick-me-up. You can wake up with an A cup, visit your plastic surgeon, and walk out minutes later with a full C cup thanks to the new procedure. Perhaps you have an important event coming up, or you want to look your best on your wedding day — or maybe you’ve always wanted a boob job but have been too afraid to go ahead with it.  The 24-hour boob job provides you with an instant lift — temporarily, of course.

But with all the buzz surrounding the new procedure, has anyone stopped to evaluate the consequences?

Experts are concerned that this new fad could cause deleterious medical conditions. Patients are at risk of developing hematomas – blood pooling under the skin – which is always a danger when injecting something into your body. Your body is also at risk for infection and bruising as a result of the procedure.

Plastic Surgery Abroad: 4 Best Tips To Avoid A Botched Procedure – Smart Beauty Guide

Dr. Karlinsky, Chief Surgeon at New Look New Life Surgical Arts, states that the “24 hour breast augmentation is not a procedure that is worthwhile for patients to undergo. The potential risks and complications as well as the cost of the procedure, in my opinion, make it unacceptable.”

It seems many patients are using this procedure multiple times, whether they’re going on vacation, attending a dinner party or wanting to impress their significant other. Repeat offenders of the “lunchtime lift” are at increased risk of damaging their breast tissue permanently.  Inserting saline directly into breast tissue could prove to be harmful to the breasts, causing stretching. In some cases, this could lead to sagging breasts.

When it comes to your body, it’s better to be safe than sorry, so be sure to do your own research before you jump on the next trend.

Review, Ingredients: Japanese Equitance Brightening Skin Care Collection With Linoleic Acid Diminishes Dark Spots, Hyperpigmentation And Hydrates Skin - Sponsored GIVEAWAY

‘Tis the season for a brighter, more radiant complexion. Introducing the Japanese skincare brand Equitance, which has built its 18-year legacy discovering the key natural ingredients it takes to promote a healthy and brighter outer skin layer. The Equitance Brightening Skin Care Collection contains a 6-piece regimen modeled after the brand’s innovative scientific discovery of Linoleic acid, a natural ingredient extracted from safflower seed oil, that when purified is shown to have a measurable effect on overall skin brightening and minimizing the appearance of dark spots. Begin by building a brightening foundation with the Skin Radiance Dietary Supplement ($50) to exude the radiance within. An exclusive blend of herbs, antioxidants and vitamins C & B6 provide nutrition while supporting overall wellness — calibrated to work with the botanicals and proven technology found in the Equitance topical formulas.

The Equitance Brightening Skin Care Collection uses a patented microcapsule technology to deliver Linoleic acid to the skin for a maximized brightening effect. You’ll begin your skin brightening journey with the rich-lathering Facial Foaming Cleanser ($30), containing cherry blossom leaf extract (to soothe and soften rough skin) and shell ginger extract (to further moisturize) to impart a brightening effect. After purifying your skin, remove remaining dull-skin cells with the Brightening Toning Lotion ($50), as its main ingredient glycosyl trehalose (found in tapioca and potato starch) soothes, moisturizes and tones.

Now it’s time to properly introduce the brand’s “hero” product: The Brightening Serum and Spot Corrector ($125). With 83% of women reporting a diminished appearance of dark spots, patented technology continuously delivers the key brightening ingredient of Linoleic acid to the skin. Seal in all that brightening work with the ultra-light but luxuriously rich Hydrating Brightening Cream ($70) to protect the skin against drying environmental aggressors — all while continuing to brighten skin. And with this committed brightening endeavor, it would be a shame not to ward off future signs of hyperpigmentation. Use the Equitance Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 36 ($30) for UVA/UVB protection, prep skin for makeup application AND enhance your brightening efforts with more Linoleic acid and a vitamin C derivative with this fast-drying sunscreen formula.

Stash inside your purse for instant relief wherever you go.
