The Truth about Aging: Why Collagen Really Matters
Do you know that as you age, your body stops producing as much collagen as it did when you're younger? And did you know that this is one of the main reasons why we start to get wrinkles and fine lines?
Collagen is the protein that gives our skin its structure, suppleness, and elasticity. It's one of the most important things when it comes to looking younger and healthier. And here's the great news: There are simple things we can do to help boost collagen levels and regenerate old collagen so our skin looks years younger.
How to Increase Collagen Naturally?
- Choose Collagen-Boosting Foods and Eat Well
There are very specific foods that are known to boost and nurture the production of collagen, as well as regenerate cells that help increase elasticity, making your skin look smooth and youthful.
Here are a few collagen-rich foods to help you get started. Try to incorporate at least 2-3 of these foods into your weekly diet:
- Bone Broth
Bone broth contains calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, collagen, glucosamine, chondroitin, amino acids, and many other powerful nutrients - all of which lead to healthier, younger looking skin.
Most collagen supplements are derived from chicken because of how much connective tissue is found in it.
- Egg Whites
Egg whites contain large amounts of proline which is one of the most important amino-acids when it comes to collagen production.
- Citrus Fruits & Berries
If you're looking to boost collagen production levels so your skin looks younger, you'll want to load up on citrus fruits due to their high levels of Vitamin C. Vitamin C plays a major role in the creation of pro-collagen, the body's precursor to collagen.
Also, don't forget to include berries in your diet. This includes strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries and oranges as they are all excellent sources of Vitamin C.
Believe it or not, garlic is known to boost collagen levels due to its high sulphur content.
- Applying Natural Skin Care Products
Choose a targeted natural skin care ritual to restore your skin’s barrier and enhance moisture retention. Natural ingredients to include:
- Bakuchiol often known as the natural alternative to Retinol, encourage collagen production, which acts to increase cell renewal and turnover to help restructure, strengthen and protect the integrity of the skin.
- Spilanthes acmella extract often known as the alternative to Botox, soothe the skin and can help boost collagen production.
- Cylindrotheca Fusiformis extract, a powerful anti-wrinkle active that stimulates production of structural skin protein collagen and elastin.
Use the MIRACLE POUR multi-active serum that contains all the above three powerful active natural ingredients to achieve optimal results to boost collagen for a youthful, radiant skin.
- Pamper Yourself
Treat yourself to a facial massage to level up your skin care routine with a vibrating face roller. Regular face massage is highly beneficial for toning facial tissues, increasing blood circulation and boosting collagen production. This is a great way to unwind and reduce stress while maintaining youthful radiant skin and decrease the signs of aging.

- Protect Your Skin from the Sun
We all love the sun but it is important to protect your skin from harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun. The truth is sun exposure can speed up collagen breakdown and it causes your skin to age faster. Apply adequate sunscreen, preferably SPF 30 and above, even on a cloudy day. Don’t leave home without your sunscreen.
So there you have it! By following these simple tips, and being consistent with your routines, you can maintain your skin's natural beauty in the comfort of your own home. Thankfully, with a little commitment, you can easily start boosting your collagen naturally to having brighter, healthier, and more rejuvenated looking skin in no time at all!
