Local heartthrob Li Nan Xing might be 50 this year, but that didn’t stop him from being scouted for a Korean drama. While he did turn down the role because it required an intimate flashback scene and he preferred masculine characters, the offer was true testimony to his age-defying youth.

The actor now splits his time between projects from Singapore, Taiwan, and China. For a brief period, all the jet-setting, irregular sleeping hours and weather changes took a toll on his body. Perhaps for the first time in his life, his skin started to betray his age.

Ah Ge’s solution? Jumping on the collagen drink bandwagon.

Speaking in Mandarin at the MU MIEUX Collagen drink’s launch, he joked about being the typical ‘kiasu’ Singaporean; instead of the suggested one bottle a day, he keeps two in his pocket at all times for that extra boost.

Collagen drinks are not new to the beauty market. But the MIEUX Collagen drink, produced by MU, a subsidiary brand of Mary Chia Group, is perhaps the first of its kind to be produced by a local brand.


is a dietary supplement that helps to nourish the skin from within, retain moisture, prevent DNA damage and the deepening of wrinkles.

While Li Nan Xing swears by his collagen drinks, colleague Constance Song prefers MU’s V.TIVATE Mist Spray.

Carrying a bottle wherever she goes, 40-year old Song likes spraying her face intermittently as it gives her an extra lift and hydration, even with makeup on!

The mist spray also helps in giving her that extra glow onscreen. Once, a director had instructed an assistant to touch-up Song’s make-up. However, once it was done, he was unsatisfied as there was still “shine” on her face, which he assumed was oil. It took a personal inspection of Song’s face to realise it was her skin’s natural glow.


is a revolutionary spray produced by Mary Chia made of plants' stem cells that boosts of four functions: lift, hydrate, regenerate and give your skin UV defence. Its lifting and hydrating properties are said to be almost instant; most people see the difference in 10 minutes!

The MU’s V.TIVATE Mist Spray  and MU MIEUX Collagen Beauty Drink are exclusively available at all Mary Chia Lifestyle & Wellness Centre, Huang Ah Ma The Oriental Spa Chamber, and Urban Homme Lifestyle & Wellness Centres.
