Collagen is a common protein found in your body that tightens your facial skin. However, as you age, your body naturally produces less collagen. Thankfully, there are several ways you can boost your body’s collagen production. Let’s discuss five ways to boost collagen topically and through your diet to prevent premature aging.
Increase Your Vitamin C Intake
Foods with high amounts of Vitamin C are beneficial for boosting collagen production. Vitamin C is used to process hyaluronic acid. The acid helps decrease recovery time from injuries and provides relief to irritated joints. Food rich in amino acids and Vitamin C increases hyaluronic acid and collagen production in your body. Some foods with high amounts of Vitamin C include:
- Red peppers and more
When you have a low amount of Vitamin C, hyaluronic acid cannot be processed. Like collagen, hyaluronic acid is in your body, and the amount of acid decreases as you age.
Use Aloe Vera Gel
Aloe vera gel is used to soothe injuries to your skin like sunburns, but it also increases collagen production. You can purchase a topical aloe vera gel or take aloe vera supplements. This plant increase cell growth which boosts the amount of collagen in your skin. Many skincare products include aloe vera in their creams and lotions. Products with aloe vera keep the skin hydrated and increase hyaluronic acid production.
Try Facial Toning Devices
Facial toning devices, or microcurrent devices, stimulate the muscles within your face to create a younger appearance and boost collagen. Stimulating your facial skin increases the muscles in your face and tightens the skin. Massaging your facial features reduces fine lines and other aging signs. Facial toning devices massage unused sub-dermal muscles to make them stronger and tighten the facial skin above.
Use Ginseng Products
Ginseng is a common alternative to harsh medications that can cause severe allergic reactions. It protects the skin against UVB damage from sun exposure. Consuming ginseng products keep your skin cells healthy and increase collagen growth in your body. Collagen helps your skin stay hydrated and increases elasticity. The antioxidants found within ginseng prevent premature aging and enhance your natural beauty.
Skin Tightening with Radio Frequency
Radiofrequency treatment is a non-invasive option for removing fine lines and other signs of aging. Most radiofrequency treatments are performed in the office by licensed doctors. During the procedure, a wand emitting radio waves go over your body. The waves emit heat and stimulate your skin to increase elastin and collagen production. This treatment increases cell production to keep the skin thicker and firmer over time. This procedure is used for the face, neck area, belly, and upper arms.
