How to Boost Your Collagen?
Collagen is the most existing protein in your body. It is the major component of connective tissues that make up several body parts, including tendons, ligaments, skin, and muscles. Collagen has many important functions, including providing your skin with structure and strengthening your bones
Beauty Guru’s Top Talking point! Here are some Collagen boosting solutions:
- Daily Sun Cream.
UV exposure plays a major part in the degradation of our collagen levels. So wear your sunblock religiously!
2. Snack Smart.
Eat foods that support nutrients for collagen production such a: vitamin C (strawberries, broccoli, oranges, peppers); copper (shellfish, nuts & red meat); Vitamin A (liver, egg yolks, carrots & sweet potatoes).
3. Exercise Regularly.
Exercise can have a positive impact. Increasing oxygen & blood supply makes for healthier skin.
4. So Long, Sugar!
Excessive sugar consumption may lead to glycation, a process that can weaken collagen & therefore, reduce its effect on skin elasticity. So maybe you should ditch that ‘one last bite of chocolate fudge cake’
