Here are some things to help collagen production:
Essential oils that promote collagen production:
Wheat germ oil. This has a distinctive scent but stimulates collagen production as it is rich in vitamin E. It is also good for hair.
Wolfberry oil – excellent for collagen production Frankincense and Sandalwood. The essential oils increase collagen production and are even being credited with helping to repair damaged DNA.
Vitamin C can be applied direct to the skin through natural skin care masks and recipes. You can use fresh fruits or oils in oil blends and masks
Foods that support and stimulate the production of collagen include:
Soy products – A lot of soy products are genetically modified in some way or processed using chemicals that can be harmful for your body. Organic and minimally processed soy products such as soymilk and soy cheese contain an genistein which has been shown to increase collagen.
Dark green raw vegetables includes: Kale, spinach, brussel sprouts, pak choy, and asparagus
Red fruits and vegetables (raw) rich in lycopenes are: Berries, tomatoes, red peppers, and beets.Berries like raspberries, blueberries and blackberries are rich in antioxidants. Fewer free radicals means more collagen production.
Omega fatty acids for increasing the elasticity in skin and balancing serum production can be found in: Salmon, tuna, cashews, pecans, almonds, avocado oil, avocados, flax seed, olive oil, brazil nuts, and coconut.
Rich in sulfur foods, great for acne, eczema and psoriasis include:
Black olives, cucumbers, celery, carrots, dried apricots, cantaloupe, and sweet potatoes. Sweet potatoes are sweet and delicious in salads, roasted or even in baking.
My favorite recipe involves pineapple, chicken soup packet, cream and cheese with a little onion and garlic baked in the oven with grated cheese on top. This is a delicious recipe that is great for pleasing your tastebuds and your skin.
