Is Your Skin Looking Dull? Try These Beauty-Boosting Collagen Drinks
Chances are, you've seen collagen drinks popping up everywhere: in beauty publications, in your supplements, maybe even in your Kardashian-branded latte. And for good reason. Studies have found that collagen supplements can have a positive effect on skin health, specifically by improving skin's elasticity. No wonder celebrities like Jen Aniston and Busy Philipps — and social media influencers everywhere — are collagen-crazed. The stuff works.
Most supplements contain collagen from either mammalian-derived sources (beef, chicken, and pork) or marine-derived sources (from either farmed or wild fish), although there are also vegan supplements designed to boost your body's natural production of collagen. While collagen can be injected, applied topically, or taken as a supplement, we think the easiest way to get your daily fix is through ready-made collagen drinks.
Here are our current favorite collagen drinks to boost your skin, nail, hair, and joint health and keep that summer glow rockin' year-round.

1) Vital Proteins Collagen Water
One of the fastest-growing brands in the ingestible beauty space, Vital Proteins has been on the forefront of collagen drinks and supplements since the trend started. Their Collagen Water contains 10 grams of collagen and only 1 gram of sugar per serving.
These waters come in a bunch of delicious flavors, but we love the very refreshing lemon ginger variety.

cultempire, but we think this Collagen Protect vegan creamer for skin, hair, and nail health is one of the brand's more legit products.

If staying home and social distancing the last four months has taught me anything, it's that I'm not exactly a morning person. Sure, when I wake up early and go for a walk or get in a workout before logging on for the workday, I feel more energized and productive.
With countries around the world operating under shelter-at-home orders, a few not-so-surprising trends have emerged, particularly for those of us who are fortunate enough to spend extra time at home: collective Netflix binging, virtual hangouts, and the return of sock curls. But what we couldn't have anticipated was a surge in people learning to embrace not only their natural hair, but their bare skin, too. Over the past several weeks, women have taken to social media to share stories of how they're building a more positive relationship with their skin at home or as essential workers, blemishes and all. Some are finding the courage to go on video calls for work with zero concealer; others are realizing that, amid all the bigger problems in this world right now, acne is just, well, acne. In light of these conversations, we spoke to five women — from Texas to the United Kingdom — about how their attitude toward their skin has evolved since COVID-19 changed the way we all experience the world.Like what you see?

Niacinamide - also known as vitamin B3 or nicotinamide - certainly isn't a new or unheard-of skin-care ingredient, though it's recently started getting a ton of buzz in the beauty industry. Much like retinol, it's somewhat of a do-it-all ingredient, and it can help resolve or improve a number of skin issues. According to dermatologist Shari Sperling, DO, niacinamide can help with inflammation, decrease redness in skin, moisturize and hydrate the skin, minimize the appearance of pores, and decrease oil production. Additionally, it's suitable for every skin type and can even be combined with other ingredients, like hyaluronic acid. From moisturizers to serums, there's a good chance you've seen niacinamide lurking in some of your products as of late, but if you haven't yet added it to your routine, read ahead to check out a few trusty skin-care products you can find it in.
It's safe to say that life right now looks very different than it did five months ago. There's so much that's changed since social distancing, wearing facial mask coverings, and working from home have become everyday practices, and for those of us at POPSUGAR, a lot of those shifts lie in our beauty routines and the way we've been caring for ourselves. Considering many of us have spent more days and nights at home than we ever have before, the most obvious change is the fact that a majority of us have taken a break from wearing makeup daily. There are plenty of other tweaks to account for, too, whether it's switching up our skin-care routines or adding newer, healthier products to our beauty lineups. From ditching heast styling tools to figuring out how to deal with maskne, read ahead to see how the beauty routines of few of our editors have changed since the beginning of shelter in place.

The first time I ever tried a beauty subscription box, I was skeptical then pleasantly surprised. For one flat rate per month, I could get full-sized products of some of today’s leading beauty brands, some that I already knew and loved and others that had been on my radar but I hadn’t had time to try. A subscription box is wonderful for people like me who never can commit to just one product, preferring to try an assortment of items to find what really works for them.
There's something magical about a lakeside getaway: you can be as lazy as you want (lounge on the dock, take a leisurely dip, or simply sit in an inner tube and float around for hours) or you can get active (water skiing, hiking the perimeter of the lake, and paddling around in kayaks or canoes). In other words, lake days are ideal for all sorts of outdoor enjoyment — and with so many scattered across the country, that fun is never too far away. Ahead, more than a few of the most amazing lake houses we could find listed on Airbnb — from large open properties fit for your quarantine crew to smaller secluded cabins just right for solo escapes.

The actress shares all her beauty favorites.
Neon-bright eyeshadows in the summer. Moody black nail polishes in the winter. Floral fragrances for spring. We know, groundbreaking. But in 2020 — when we've all been stuck inside for so long that the seasons have all sort of blended together — fashion and beauty trends are following suit. The recent rise in loungewear clothing has led to a rise in loungewear makeup, including comforting lip-care products that you'd typically see in the colder months. But these tinted glosses, cushiony balms, and glossy oils are far more appealing than the half-used tub of Carmex buried in the pocket of your winter coat. From Summer Fridays to KNC Beauty, some of your favorite skin-care brands have taken on the lip-care category with gorgeous results. Whether you're looking to keep your mouth moisturized under your face mask or you want shiny, plump lips for your next FaceTime date, we've rounded up some of the best launches hitting the beauty aisle, ahead.
