Collagen is an essential substance for the skin, for a young and beautiful look!

See what foods you can consume to stimulate its production!

Our body produces less collagen as we get older.

It is located beneath the epidermis. It is the basis of tissues that support the structure of the skin and organs.

Sun, free radicals, cigarette smoke or pollution also contribute to lowering its levels.

In order to “repair” the damaged cells, the body always produces collagen. But around the age of 35, the level of this substance and its quality begin to decrease.

There are many collagen creams and products on the market, but they cannot do wonders.

We can also stimulate the collagen production of our body with a healthy lifestyle including certain foods in the diet.

Here are some:

White tea

Researchers have found that white tea protects skin proteins.

In addition, it reduces the activity of enzymes that lead to wrinkles.

Citrus

They are rich in vitamin C and can turn certain amino acids into collagen.

Green vegetables

Spring greens, broccoli, spinach or kale are rich in vitamin C which has antioxidant properties.

Orange vegetables

Carrots and sweet potatoes regenerate the skin because they contain vitamin A.

Red vegetables

Tomatoes, red peppers and red beets contain a natural antioxidant that protects the skin from ultraviolet.

Protein

Egg proteins are rich in collagen. They support the natural production of this substance. Consumption of nuts has the same role.

Soy

Soy contains genistein, a substance that acts as an antioxidant.

Pure fish oil

The skin cells are surrounded by a fatty membrane that protects them. When they are healthy, they are able to support the structure of the skin. The fish is rich in Omega 3, and the benefits of oil consumption are countless for health, especially for internal organs tissues.

According to Chinese medicine, there are 600 nerve points on the face, which we can be stimulated with the help of massage.

All of this is related to certain organs, so, we could say that while massaging the face, we are massaging, in fact, the entire body.

Facial massages can stimulate those energetic channels, called meridians, restoring the balance between body and soul.

Here’s what you can do during the morning shower:

  1. Wash your hair and apply shampoo. In shampoo, you can add one, two drops of your favourite essential oil.

Inspire deep and place your hands lightly on your head.

Let your fingers rotate slowly but vigorously throughout the scalp so that you can massage the muscles that are underneath and relieve the strain.

Rinse hair and then apply a natural conditioner.

  1. Put a little peeling into your hands and apply on your face.

Massage your forehead with the tips of your fingers with small and slow circular movements without pressing.

Do the same with your jaws and chin.

Then go to your nose and massage with your fingers.

Rinse your face with plenty of water.

  1. Massage with the tips of your fingers your neck and chest.

Movements should still be circular and slow because in these areas the skin is thinner.

Rinse again your face and hair with plenty of water.

 

Suggestions:
  • The water should not be too hot.
  • Finish the shower with cold, progressive water to stimulate blood circulation and muscle tone.

Have a wonderful day!
