The key to smooth, plump and ultimately ‘young’ looking skin is down (in part) to collagen. Loss of firming and (deep breath), wrinkles are a sure sign that your skin isn’t producing enough of the good stuff. This is where Dove Spa Strength Within, £35 for 84 capsules (dovespa.co.uk) comes in. Even before its launch last year it had received some serious interest and was sold out before it hit the shelves. This is because clinical tests shows that these little supplements with soy isoflavones (plant derived phytoestrogen), lycopene, vitamin E and C and Omega fatty acids smooth lines and firm skin in just 14 weeks.
Thalgo Collagen Booster, £39.50 for 10 x 10ml vials (thalgo.com) are another great way to boost the appearance of your skin from within. Simply down a shot in the morning with breakfast and feed your skin hyaluronic acid, selenium, Peptan (a marine collagen) and vitamins C, E and B8.
