5 Ways to Naturally Boost Collagen for beautiful hair, skin and nails.
What is Collagen and Why is it Important?
Collagen is a protein in our bodies that makes up a large part of our hair, skin and nails. This wrinkle-preventing protein helps to keep skin plump and youthful. It’s responsible for smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, and gives our skin a firm, thick, and smooth appearance.
As we grow older, and lifestyle factors such a stress and poor diet cause us to produce less collagen. Collagen starts to deplete at the age of 20! However there are lots of natural ways we can boost collagen, for beautiful hair, skin, nails and health.
Collagen supplements can help strengthen collagen from the inside out. I love the HUM nutrition Collagen Love as they contain type I, type II and type III collagen that are are the most beneficial for skin. They are also 100% Natural, GMO free, gluten free and contain no preservatives. You can read my HUM Nutrition Collagen Love review here.
Vitamin C is vital in the process making collagen and it also reduces oxidative damage. You can get vitamin C from citrus fruits and dark green vegetables like broccoli, asparagus, spinach, and kale. Other foods that are great to boost collagen are garlic, white & green tea, soy, berries, and orange vegetables.
Facial massages have so many benefits. They are not only really relaxing, reduce stress and make your skin care routine more effective, they also stimulate blood flow and encourage collagen production.
I love to use the Nurse Jaime Facial Firming tool a few times a week, it’s super easy to use and you real notice a diffference.
We all know that drinking water is amazing for keeping skin clear and glowing. The more hydrated the skin is the better the environment for collagen to thrive. Up your water intake and use a hydrating moisturiser.
Collagen creams are amazing for the skin and can help to make the skin more plump, smooth and hydrated. Using a collagen cream can reduce the appearance of scars, and help reduce wrinkles and fine lines.
