8 ways to boost your skin’s natural collagen

Published: 16/04/2024 | Author: Valeria Solonari

Ready to learn the secrets of youthful, radiant skin? Collagen, the protein behind your skin's elasticity and firmness, is a skin superhero. But as we age, its production slows down, leading to wrinkles and sagging. Don't fret! We've got eight effective ways to help you boost your skin's natural collagen production. Follow along!

Protect your skin from sun damage

Excessive sun exposure is one of the primary contributors to collagen breakdown. UV radiation penetrates the skin, generating harmful free radicals that degrade collagen fibres. Shield your skin by making sunscreen a non-negotiable part of your daily routine. Opt for a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher and reapply it every two hours, especially when spending extended periods outdoors.

Choose topical skincare wisely

Choose topical skincare wisely

Enhance your routine with potent formulations designed to nourish, hydrate, and support collagen boost. Powerhouses like Diamond Cellular Anti-Ageing Cream features a Cellular Booster Complex that stimulates collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid production. Meanwhile, the Royal Velvet Repairing Night Cream reduces collagen and elastin breakdown for firmer skin while you’re at rest.

Indulge in regular facial massages

Who doesn't love a good massage? Not only are they incredibly relaxing, but they also stimulate collagen production and improve skin tone. They’re great for enhancing circulation and promoting lymphatic drainage, facilitating the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to your skin cells. Pair your massage with NovAge Time Restore Revitalising Serum for added benefits, leaving your skin feeling rejuvenated, plump, and visibly radiant.

Integrate retinoids into your routine

Retinoids, derived from vitamin A, are renowned for their ability to stimulate collagen production and promote skin renewal. Incorporate ProCeuticals Retinol Power Drops into your nightly routine to reduce wrinkles and fine lines, but also improve your skin texture and overall radiance. Start slow and steady to minimise irritation, gradually increasing potency as your skin adjusts.

Nourish from within with collagen-rich foods

Although a youthful appearance is highly valued, beauty isn’t just skin deep – healthy skin is a reflection of inner health. So, fill your plate with collagen-boosting foods like bone broth, salmon, berries, and leafy greens, to significantly enhance your skin's elasticity and firmness. These nutrient-packed foods provide essential vitamins, minerals, and amino acids necessary for collagen synthesis.

Harness the power of antioxidants

Don't underestimate the power of antioxidants in supporting collagen production and protecting your skin from oxidative stress. Our Wellosophy Astaxanthin and Bilberry Extract supplements combine natural Astaxanthin, Bilberry extract, and Vitamins C and E to defend your body's cells against harmful free radicals, preserving your collagen and keeping your skin healthier and happier.

Red light therapy once a week

Red light therapy has gained massive popularity for its ability to stimulate collagen production and prevent its degradation. By exposing the skin to low levels of red or near-infrared light, this therapy reduces inflammation and activates fibroblasts, encouraging cellular energy production. Treat your skin to weekly sessions and complement other collagen-boosting strategies for visibly improved skin.

Prioritise sleep and stress management

Ah, the power of beauty sleep! During deep sleep, the body undergoes repair and regeneration processes, including collagen synthesis. So, aim for seven to nine hours of uninterrupted sleep each night. What’s more, chronic stress can also accelerate collagen breakdown, leading to premature ageing. Keep stress at bay with calming practices such as meditation, yoga, or breathing exercises to preserve your youthful, resilient skin.
