What is collagen and what is it used for?

Collagen is a so-called structural protein that is to say that it allows tissues such as the skin to be resistant. It is the most present protein in our body.

It helps to fix calcium on the bones and therefore takes care of your joints. But its best known action is the regeneration of the epidermis. It acts directly on the elasticity of the skin and the preservation of its elasticity.

How to stimulate collagen production?

With age (around 30 years old), the body makes less collagen. This is why you see signs of aging of the skin (wrinkles, fine lines, …).

To overcome this collagen protein failure, you can adapt your diet to promote its production.

Choose foods rich in vitamins and minerals such as almonds, walnuts and sesame for example. But also green vegetables such as broccoli, spinach, green cabbage, eggplant, etc.

Moisturizing your skin also boosts collagen production. Apply daily a moisturizing serum and a day and night cream.

 

As you can see, collagen is naturally present in our body in large quantities up to 30 years. To promote its production and thus avoid the signs of aging of the skin, adopt a healthy diet rich in vitamins and minerals. Drink plenty of water and moisturize your skin!
