Beauty Tips Amino

Wish to look beautiful? Here are 8 tips to always keep in mind!

Most women want to look and feel beautiful. When you look beautiful, you feel good about yourself, as you start to feel more confident about your appearance. While attractive eyes, beguiling smile and shiny hair will all add to your stunning looks, true and tested natural beauty begins with great skin.

When it comes to healthy, flawless and youthful skin, what you put on your skin is as important as what you put in your body. The key to naturally beautiful skin is not a magic potion, but a combination of --- high quality skincare products, skin-friendly cosmetics, collagen boosting super-foods, and light cardio workouts that make you sweat, so your skin purges all toxins.

Here are 8 time tested tips to ensure that you have healthy, beautiful skin always.

  • Never go to bed without cleansing your face and removing all makeup. Follow the Cleanse-Tone-Moisturize routine before bedtime.
  • Don’t prick pimples or acne on your face. Doing so attracts dirt and other germs into the pores.
  • While a hot shower feels great when it’s cold outside or after an extensive workout, prolonged hot showers will rob your skin of all natural oils, leaving it dry and parched. It’s best to use lukewarm water for showers.
  • Take a thorough bath with a body-wash that balances the pH levels of your skin after a swim, as chlorine mixed into public swimming pools can rob all the moisture from the skin.
  • If you are trying out a new cosmetic product, test it out first on a small portion of skin, before you apply it all over the delicate skin of your face. The inside of your arm is the ideal testing spot.
  • Cut down on the consumption of caffeine-rich drinks as these are notorious for drying up the skin from within, contributing towards premature wrinkles. Instead, switch to green teas and herbal teas. Along with drinking 3-4 litres of water every day, these will keep you well hydrated from within.
  • Don’t skip meals, as this ages your skin. It’s not just your body that needs sustenance; the skin is made up of active cells and needs healthy nutrients to look and feel its best too.
  • Ensure your diet includes foods rich in Vitamin C (oranges), Vitamin B3 (peanuts), Vitamin E (avocados), and Vitamin A (sweet potatoes). It’s also good to eat lots of potatoes (vA), avocados (vE), peanuts (vB3), and fruits such as orange, papaya, strawberries, pineapple, kiwifruit, and cantaloupe, as they are all excellent sources of Vitamin C.

Last but not the least; add collagen to your diet. However, the simplest way to up your collagen intake is to add a spoonful of Amino Collagen to your dal, smoothie, yogurt or gravy dishes every day. This will make your skin glowing, plumper, healthier and firmer.

With these easy to follow tips, you can be rest assured that you have beautiful glowing skin that fetches you many compliments.

How to look beautiful?

Most women are on a quest to achieve timeless beauty. Whether you are a teenager, a young woman, or an older lady who takes pride in her looks, the secret to looking beautiful is like the Holy Grail for women from all walks of life.

Many women wrongly believe that the key to beautiful, flawless, sun-kissed skin lies in mastering the art of applying make-up. Make-up can succeed transiently, but putting on your makeup-face first thing in the morning can be cumbersome, time-consuming and rather elaborate. No doubt; applying make-up can freshen up your look and let you ‘fake’ a glow on bad mornings, but the secret to looking beautiful begins with healthy, naturally glowing skin; not relying on cosmetic solutions. ‘Healthy’ refers not only to external application of beautifying agents but also strengthening the skin from within

A study of women (aged between 18 and 25) by StumbleUpon shows that 67% of women use 0-3 beauty products in the mornings, 20% stated that they use 4-7 products, 10% use 8-12 products whereas, surprisingly, only 3% young women use more than ten beauty products.

The study reveals a remarkable trend --- not all the women resort to using make-up and beauty potions. Most of them have realized the fact that using skin-friendly cosmetic products and eating skin-friendly foods keeps your skin looking youthful and stress-free for longer.

If you are keen to get healthier, naturally glowing skin too, the following seven tips are a must try!

  • Drink Lots of Water: Not just drink for quenching your thirst; drink it as much as possible. One of the main causes of skin looking dark and dull is dehydration, which occurs due to fluid loss through skin evaporation, breathing, passage of urine and stool. Drinking at least 3-5 litters of water a day maintains the optimum fluid level.
  • Keep your Skin Moisturized Use a good moisturizer that keeps your skin nourished, warding off premature wrinkles and parched saggy skin. Ensure that the moisturizer you buy has deep moisturizing ingredients like as lanolin, glycerine, or petrolatum. A beauty consultant can help you find the best match for your specific skin type.
  • Cleanse your Skin: It makes sense to rinse your face with a good face wash daily. It helps cleanse pollutants and remove all traces of your make-up. Wash your face in the mornings before you apply your moisturizer and makeup, and at night before bedtime.
  • Don’t Forget the Sunscreen: One of the greatest enemies of your healthy skin is harsh sunlight. Make sure you apply a good sunscreen daily to protect your skin from harmful UVA and UVB sunrays.
  • Say No to caffeine: Instead of drinking coffee in the morning, switch to a cup of lemon and hot water potion that detoxifies the skin. Caffeine dehydrates the skin.
  • Dietary enhancements: Along with skincare products applied externally to your skin, it’s a good idea to add a few dietary enhancements (supplements) that make your skin glow from within. The best dietary supplement is Amino Collagen powder. The daily dosage of Amino Collagen replenishes the required collagen in the skin. It contains fish collagen, glucosamine, arginine and vitamin C .This unique combination makes the skin healthy and beautiful from within.
  • Eat a Healthy diet: Make sure you never skip your meals and eat a healthy diet that includes foods rich in Vitamins C B3, E and A.

The Simplest Way to Get Beautiful Skin

Every woman dreams of attaining flawless skin --- so unblemished and fine that even without makeup you feel like million bucks. But unfortunately on a daily basis it’s difficult to follow a strict beauty regime (who has the time, right?) But the fact remains that even though you might be preparing to look stunning on an important day with the perfect outfit, accessories and makeup, the one thing you just cannot afford to ignore is your skin.

Yes, makeup can do the trick for a limited period of time but trust us when we say this – no amount of makeup can make you look impeccable if your skin is in bad shape. Healthy glowing skin is the very foundation to looking and feeling great and today we are going to talk about the simplest way you can get beautiful skin.

Do You Need A Specialised Skin-Care Regime?

First and foremost, you need to take extra special care of your skin. Make sure that you follow good skin care habits – cleanse, tone and moisturize every day. You’ll also need to schedule regular facial treatments to get rid of dead skin cell accumulation, tighten and tone your facial skin to get clear and flawlessly glowing skin. However, all these treatments work on the ‘Outside’.

Your skin is your body’s largest organ; hence whatever happens on the INSIDE will reflect on the OUTSIDE, irrespective of how many expensive spa and facial treatments you book yourself into.

If you want your skin to be firm, healthy and glowing, you need to tweak your diet as well as lifestyle habits. The simplest way to attain that is by consuming Amino Collagen – Japan’s leading beauty supplement, which is now available in India and guarantees to give you glowing, radiating skin naturally.

Collagen...What?

Collagen is the most important structural protein in the skin and plays a key role in providing structural scaffolding for cells & tissues. Collagen is also responsible for giving skin a plump, supple, smooth and youthful appearance, being the very key to flawless, healthier and glowing skin. Daily intake of Collagen is required to maintain optimal skin health.

Amino Collagen is a beauty food made from high quality, low molecular collagen peptide. It contains fish collagen – an essential skin protein for flawless skin, along with three added ingredients that offer immense skin benefits and makes it even more effective at achieving beautiful skin. These are:

  • Arginine – An amino acid that is essential for healthier skin.
  • Vitamin C – An essential vitamin that supports collagen and act as anti-oxidant.
  • Glucosamine – A component of Hyaluronic acid that helps the skin maintain natural moisture to stay supple and younger looking naturally.

How to Use

Simply add the powder to anything you fancy – hot or cold beverages, smoothies, or even juices. You can also add Amino Collagen to dals, sabzis, rice and gravy dishes after they have been cooked to make it a part of your regular diet. The best part? It’s very easy to use as well, since it is odourless, colourless and tasteless by itself.

So for that perfect skin tweak your diet by making Amino Collagen a part of your regime and see the visible results in just 28 days.

Along with daily consumption of Amino Collagen, make sure that you

  • Consume lots of natural antioxidants in the form of fruits and vegetables,
  • Get sufficient sleep every night,
  • Combat stress through meditation and yoga,
  • Stay hydrated by drinking 8-10 glasses of water every day, and
  • Avoid exposure to atmospheric pollutants

If you really want to get your skin in top form no matter the day, get started right away!

5 beautiful winter skin care tips for a happy new year

Winter Image

The beautifully cold and silent winter draws people closer to one another for warmth. Isn’t it such a beautiful season full of love, festivals &merry holidays? Even eating is such a great feeling during winters, isn’t it, digging in hot spicy curries and slurping on steamy beverages!
Most of us look forward to winter all year long, yet when winter arrives somehow none of us are prepared enough.

Chilly winds, cold temperatures & hot showers wreak havoc on our skin leading to dehydration of skin cells. These dehydrated skin cells take time to recycle leaving behind a clogged layer of dead skin which hides the natural glow of your skin from the world.

Additionally, the lack of Collagen, the skin protein a scarcity of the skin protein, Collagen, in the skin is the cause behind most common skin-problems.

Here are 5 basic winter rules, you must swear by if you want that Cleopatra like glow:

  1. Drink lots of water: It’s easy to forget about drinking water in winters, when nothing makes you especially thirsty. Make sure you keep yourself hydrated.
  2. Lukewarm baths: Bathing is one of the most difficult things to think about during winters. If not for hot water geysers, I would never bathe in winter (wonder how the earlymen survived!) Make sure you are not depleting your skin off its natural moisture by taking really hot showers. Lukewarm is the way to go.
  3. Use a good moisturiser, regularly. Also, keep in mind that winter sun harms your skin as much as the summer sun. Keep your sunscreen handy when going out.
  4. Be Happy: Being happy always shows on your skin, so does being stressed. Think happy thoughts, organise your time well, spend time with family and enjoy some alone time. Recipe for a glowing skin!
  5. The key to having a naturally glowing skin is the optimum amount of Collagen in your skin. Unfortunately, the Collagen content in our skin decreases with age and what’s worse is that Collagen isn’t easily replaceable when relying solely on food intake. E.g. Evenif you abide by all the rules mentioned above but the collagen content in your skin is low, nothing quite works.

When no food materials will provide the required Collagen, it is only natural to turn to a food supplement which does the needful. Meiji’s Amino Collagen has been tried and tested all over the world for the past 10 years and the results have been fantastical. You can order for Amino Collagen at www.aminocollagenindia.com or call at 022-65886508 to know more.

Cuddle up and have a glorious winter!

The best part of beauty is that which no picture can express - Francis Bacon

The real essence of beauty is within us and no amount of cosmetics, creams, lotions, toners can replenish it. Nothing spells “beauty” like a healthy and youthfully flawless skin. By the age of 25, the skin starts to lose its supple glow and moisture content resulting in skin darkening, fine lines, dark circles and then the dreaded wrinkles. The health of our skin directly relies on the amount of Collagen protein present in it. As the years go by, the amount of Collagen in our skin starts to deteriorate resulting in lose skin and this is when we turn to the enormous range of cosmetics that are available in the market.

But how can we make up for a skin protein in our body by external application of cosmetics?

That's right, we cannot.
Following are the symptoms of a decreased Collagen in your skin:

  • Skin darkening
