Did you know that collagen is one of the most abundant proteins within the body? It is the main component of many connective tissues that make up important body parts, including the skin, ligaments, muscles and tendons.
Collagen serves an incredibly important purpose. It provides the skin with its structure, and producing enough collagen is vital to ensuring skin looks and feels its best.
Collagen actually helps to rejuvenate the skin every thirty days or so – but as we age, the amount of collagen we produce is lowered.
Low collagen levels result in sagging skin, wrinkles, crows feet, sun spots and other blemishes.
However, it’s also possible to boost collagen levels with the following methods:
While you may have read that consuming bones or “bone broth” is a great way to increase collagen, the good news is that there are tastier ways to naturally boost the appearance of your skin. Leafy greens like spinach and broccoli are full of vitamin C, which plays a huge role in the synthesis of collagen.
Citrus fruits are jam-packed with vitamin C too, but be certain to consume the whole fruit (as opposed to just drinking juice) as the sugars in juice take on a different form and could counteract the benefits of naturally-occurring vitamin C.
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a non-invasive procedure which uses small needles to prick the skin. The brain perceives these pricks as “damage” to the body and generates more collagen than usual at the site where microneedling has taken place. The purpose of this treatment is to facilitate firmer, smoother, more toned skin.
Microneedling is typically used on the face and is effective in treating wrinkles, scars and large pores. It’s completely safe and offers complete convenience. The overall procedure takes less than two hours and results in brighter skin that reduces the appearance of wounds and signs of ageing.
