Collagen-Rich Foods for Younger Looking Skin

Collagen is the key to younger, healthier-looking skin. This incredible product made naturally in the body is what gives structure to our cells, giving them that ‘plump’ frame that makes our skin glow and feel soft and full. But as we age, our bodies begin to produce less collagen. Other factors like sun and smoking make skin cells even thinner. And before long, we are left with unhealthy skin and an increasing amount of wrinkles. We offer a number of treatments here at the Laser Lounge Spa to help you replenish your skin and give it that naturally healthy feel and look again. But there are some foods you can eat in between treatmets to stave off wrinkles and keep skin cells strong. Here are some great tips from New Beauty Magazine on what foods to eat to look young. Bon Appetit!

Seven Collagen-Boosting Foods

Posted Monday, September 24, 2012 by NewBeauty Editors

Collagen is essential for young-looking skin because it gives structure to our skin cells. But, as we age, the body produces less of it, since naturally occurring enzymes break collagen down, in turn, causing the skin to thin, lose fullness and form wrinkles. The sun, pollution, free radicals and smoke are also responsible for disintegrating collagen.
While the body is constantly creating new collagen to repair what’s been damaged, around age 35, collagen production naturally begins to taper off, and the quality of collagen is not as good as in years past. The good news? In addition to topical products, and treatments, food is a great way to naturally boost collagen in the skin. “Stimulating collagen with at-home topical products, in-office treatments and proper lifestyle choices helps the skin maintain its strength, resiliency and volume,” says Madison, WI, facial plastic surgeon Richard C. Parfitt, MD.
