Collagen is a vital component to maintaining healthy and glowing skin. However, as we begin to age, our natural collagen supply begins to decline and we experience issues with the skin such as sagging, wrinkles and fine lines. In this blog post, we’ll take a look at what collagen is and ways you can boost the collagen levels within your body to craft radiant looking skin.

1. Collagen boosting foods

Your diet is a great way to naturally boost collagen levels as well as maintaining your general health. One food that you might not know contains collagen is chicken. It is rich in amino acids that stimulate the body to produce collagen. Citrus fruits such as; oranges, lemons, grapefruits and limes not only provide vitamin C, but collagen too. Incorporate leafy greens through salads or juices including; kale, collard greens and lettuce.

Retinoids (retinol is a type of retinoid) stimulates fibroblasts to synthesise collagen fibres. A fibroblast is a type of cell that contributes to the formation of connective tissues, these play an important role in wound healing and maintaining skin firmness. Retinols work by increases cell production and turnover by exfoliating the surface of the skin. These processes increase collagen which in turn, minimises signs of ageing and plumps the skin.

3. Massages

By massaging the face on a regular basis, you stimulate the production of collagen. This works as you are helping the layers deep under the surface of the skin to stretch out fibroblasts. This stimulates them to begin working and in result, produces collagen. Not only does massaging the skin increase collagen, it tightens the skin and improves blood circulation too.

4. Use SPF

SPF doesn’t necessarily boost collagen, but it is a vital tool in protecting the collagen that is already in the body. By applying it at least once daily, you are not only protecting your body’s naturally produced collagen, but your skin from UV damage and even skin cancer. You should still be applying SPF when the weather isn’t sunny or warm as the sun’s UV rays can still be harmful on the skin.

5. Skin boosters

Skin boosters have been specially formulated to boost and stimulate collagen production. By doing so, the skin is also hydrated, texture is minimised and issues like hyperpigmentation are significantly minimised. They are a hyaluronic acid based product, that are minimally invasive and provide long term rejuvenation of the skin that can last around 3 months.
