Hydrolyzed collagen is produced from collagen found in the bones, skin, and connective tissueContinue reading “Living The Vida Glow-ca”

HASK: The Must-Have For Your Hair

Humidity can really wreak havoc on your hair. Mine fights a constant battle against Singapore’s temperamental tropical climate. On top of that, like loads of ladies out there, I spend most of my day in a dry air-conditioned environment.
