If you’re like me, you probably slather all sorts of products on your face and hair in an effort to look your best. While topical products can do a lot for us, using supplements to enhance your beauty might be the next logical step.
If your hair isn’t as va va voom as you’d like it to be, this supplement will give you all the nutrients you need for fuller, thicker, and even shinier hair. It’s packed with Cynatine HNS, a patented form of solubilized keratin, as well as Hydrolyzed Super Collagen, Amla Extract and Vitamin C, to really get to the root of the problem (sorry, couldn’t resist).

Created specifically for women over 40 by anti-aging expert, Dr. Daniel Sister, this supplement uses a powerful blend of amino acids and marine plant extract Superoxide Dismutase, to address the reduction of growth hormones as we age. In addition to the physical issues that are par for the course for those of us over 40, like brittle bones, lack of energy and decreased sex drive (!), the depletion of growth hormone causes a whole host of beauty issues, including fine lines, wrinkles and dull skin.

Radiant Skin Beauty Dose is based on the supplements that are given to astronauts to increase their natural levels of Gluthathione, which is the body’s most powerful antioxidant. It also contains NAC, an amino acid that encourages collagen production to repair skin and improve elasticity. Space is way rougher on the body than earth is, so this is worth a try!

Instead of using a regular drinking glass for powdered supplements, I like to use this leak-free bottle, which has a tornado-shaped cone that allows for the powder to dissolve thoroughly. I also find large water bottles to be a good motivator for me to drink more water, which as we know, will do wonders for our skin! Available in a variety of colors.
