Your skin is made up of 75% Collagen – How to Increase Collagen Production

Aging Skin

I never stop “researching the research” and today I want to talk more about increasing Collagen production.

Collagen is the most plentiful protein in the skin, that makes up 75% – 80% of our skin.

In another article “Can we Halt the Deterioration of Collagen?” I spoke about the effects of Collagen deterioration and how it impacts significantly on our ability to become a Super Ager.

3 ways to Increase Collagen Production in Your Skin

I am so very passionate about how we can increase Collagen in our skin and that is why I added the Collagen Elixir to the CELL Infuse range of products.

The Collagen Elixir, with a number of Plant Extracts, is 100% natural having gone through a unique extraction process to keep the Elixir very potent and active, and also to retain one of the highest sources of Vitamin C available.

It is also packed with powerful polyphenols and their derivatives.  These extracts are changing the direction of natural skincare enormously.

In addition to Vitamin C, Here are two other ways to help rebuild Collagen…

Tone Your Skin with this Heart Nutrient… 

CoQ10 benefits for collagen productionMany people think of CoQ10 as a supplement you take orally. But you can also use it topically.

You see, CoQ10 is a small molecule that easily penetrates the skin’s surface. It gets down to the living layers of the epidermis. It absorbs quickly into your skin cells. A Japanese study found that applying CoQ10 to skin cells boosts the production of a special type of collagen that connects your skin’s outermost epidermis layer to its deeper dermis.

It anchors your skin so it doesn’t sag and wiggle around. It visibly reduces crow’s feet and wrinkles.

organic rosehip oil skincare benefitsRose Hip Oil contains retinoic acid. It can help tighten skin and improve elasticity. It also helps reverse collagen damage.

In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study published in the New England Journal of Medicine, daily use of retinoic acid increased collagen production by 80%.

Vitamin C

As I have said on many occasions, one of the best ways to replenish lost collagen is Vitamin C.  Duke University researchers found that Vitamin C boosts Collagen production regardless of age.

And the best source of Vitamin C that I’ve found for your skin is Camu Camu. It helps rebuild collagen to firm your skin and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. I enjoy Camu Camu in a powder form.  Look for it online and in your health food store.

I like to add the dried powder to my Protein shake of a morning.  Start off slowly then increase over time. It is considered we can consume up to 3,000 mg a day from supplements and food and that will help to produce Collagen to repair and rebuild your skin.

Today I have put three powerful Collagen building products together for you to see the benefits of increased Collagen production personally.  The CELL Infuse Rejuvenol 3 pack is the ideal combination of products to strengthen and repair, returning firmness, elasticity and youthfulness.  Read More about this fantastic combination of products here.
