Drink yourself young?
Now you can drink collagen to help give you healthy and younger looking skin. The Gold Collagen drink, which has just arrived in the UAE, includes hydrolysed collagen and hyaluronic acid, which proponents say maintains healthy skin, hair and nails by stimulating the natural production of collagen in your body. They also improve elasticity so are great for anti-ageing. While it sounds like something that will taste weird, it actually has a sweet fruity taste. It’s recommended to drink Gold Collagen every day for three to six weeks to see the results. Dh229 for a starter pack, available at Boots.
Why is Hollywood going bald?
The latest trend on the red carpet seems to be to cut your hair as short as you can and dye it bleach blonde. Katy Perry, Cara Delevinge and Kristen Stewart have all gone almost bald with their cropped cuts recently and we want to know: What is going on? Cara reportedly called shaving her head ‘liberating’ while Kristen revealed to Today that she found it ‘practical.’ These three have managed to pull it off – so we’ve gotta ask: in the face of the UAE’s summer heat, are you willing to do the crop?
