Why collagen is key to glowing skin?

November 16th, 2017

Collagen glow

Collagen, is the most abundant protein in our bodies. You can find  it in your blood vessels, muscles, tendons, digestive system and skin. However, when we age, our collagen levels naturally slow down which causes the appearance of wrinkles, sagging skin and cellulite. External factors such as smoking and sun exposure can also contribute to a decrease in your collagen levels.

  • Collagen helps in maintaining elasticity of the skin. It also  retains moisture which prevents fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Collagen improves skin tone.
  • Collagen firms and tones your skin from the dermis, the layer that is responsible for maintaining your skin’s  tightness.
  • Collagen helps reduce the appearance of scars.
There are a number of ways to boost your collagen levels: skincare products, food or ingestible collagen supplements, all of  which can help create a better barrier protection for your skin.
  • Products containing retinol have been proven to help to boost collagen production as it targets receptors in the skin.
  • Add antioxidants to your skincare regime – these ingredients will trigger an enzyme in the skin that allows collagen to break down.
  • Massage your face  on a daily basis to boost collagen production and give your skin an even appearance by stimulating the lymph glands.
  • Look for food  which boosts your collagen levels such as bone broth, salmon, green leaves, citrus, eggs, berries, tomatoes, pumpkin seeds, avocados, garlic, chia seeds.

How do you boost your collagen levels?
