Japanese "Make You Pretty" Pills Are Coming Soon to a Store Near You
These cutting edge capsules can plump your skin, banish pesky grays and more
Yes, pretty pills. As in, pills you pop that will magically (ok, there's science behind them) make you more attractive.
And, while these bottles of beauty supplements have been available in the island nation for a while now, they're soon going to be making waves, big waves, on our shores. Here's a preview of 3 brands and what they promote:
Zytaze: Works to extend and better your Botox experience. A combo of "special" enzymes and zinc, Zytaze makes the muscle- paralyzing effects of the botulism derivative more effective and helps them to last up to 2 months longer, effectively delivering much more Botox for your buck.
Go Away, Gray: The name of this product gets straight to the point. When ingested on a daily basis, these pills will break down the naturally occurring hydrogen peroxide in your body so that your hair won't be able to turn gray. It takes about 12 weeks to start to work but, if it means not having to do touch ups ever again, sign us up.

Sero-Vital-hGH: HGH, human growth hormone, has gotten a bad rap since February 2012 when "Vanity Fair" ran an article about aging Hollywood A-listers using a synthetic version of it to remain virile and ripped and otherwise "youthful."
Sero-Vital-hGH is not the same stuff -- it's not a faux hormone, it works to up the levels of your body's naturally-occurring HGH to promote younger-looking skin, increased muscle mass and, some say, a decrease in body fat. If you're interested in its effects and any possible risks, talk to your dermatologist, it's already available in select markets at a price point of about $100 a month.
