4 Collagen Boosting Tips

facial exercisesOne of the great benefits of facial exercises is that they boost collagen production. Collagen is an insoluble, fibrous protein found in our skin, muscles, bones and tendons. It’s the most abundant protein in our bodies and provides elasticity, structural support and cellular regeneration. Collagen literally holds the body together like a glue.

As we age, collagen production slows down. This results in sagging skin, wrinkles and the breakdown of cartilage in your joints. The good news is, there are ways to boost collagen production that result in firmer, smoother skin, healthier joints, stronger teeth and nails, and a reduction in cellulite and stretch marks.

Here are four excellent ways to boost collagen production and improve your overall health.

1. Increase Vitamin C Consumption

Vitamin C is renowned for boosting immunity, but it is also essential to the formation of skin cells. Studies conducted by Tulane University found that it increases collagen production and many other studies show that individuals who consume high quantities of vitamin C develop fewer wrinkles than those who don’t. Apply it topically with High Density C Serum and eat vitamin C-rich produce such as oranges, lemons, tomatoes, red peppers, berries, kiwi and green leafy vegetables. You can also take a daily supplement, such as Ester-C, which is a gentler version.

2. Boost Consumption of Amino Acids and Lean Protein

Eggs, poultry and fish are excellent sources of both amino acids and lean protein that boost collagen production. Other good sources include bone broth and collagen powders.

3. Protect Skin From the Sun

The sun’s damaging rays show up as photodamage while depleting collagen under the surface. The result is unsightly, long-term damage that is difficult to repair. Wear sunscreen religiously every time you step outside—even if you’re just running to the store for five minutes. Apply it to your face, neck, hands, décolletage and anywhere else you want to have nice skin. In addition, eat foods that are rich in lycopene, which acts as a natural sunblock. Good lycopene sources include watermelon, tomatoes, papaya, grapefruit, beets and bell peppers.

4. Do Your Daily Facial Exercises

Facercising on a daily basis improves circulation and collagen production. It also prevents muscle atrophy, which results in sagging skin, fine lines and wrinkles.

4 Skin Care Mistakes to Avoid

facerciseWhile many people spend so much time and money trying to prevent aging, often times they don’t protect that investment. So often we hear from clients who do their daily facial exercises, get facials, exercise, eat right and spend hundreds of dollars on skin care products–and then undo all that good work with bad habits.

Below is a list of some of the most common beauty blunders made by men and women across the globe that can actually result in skin damage and premature aging. Make sure to avoid them all!

1. Smoking

This is one of the biggest blunders made—and its affects are some of the worst. Smoking is incredibly toxic to your skin and entire body, causing it to age and weakening its ability to heal wounds. Plus, it creates those nasty wrinkles around the lips, stains the teeth, creates bags under the eyes and can lead to thinning hair. Quit smoking right now and you will see a big difference in a matter of weeks.

2. Inadequate Sleep

Sleep deprivation wreaks obvious havoc on your skin—both short-term and long-term. Sleep is when your skin and entire body rejuvenates itself, so when you skip out on your zzz’s, your skin doesn’t have time to repair and take advantage of all the good skin care products you’ve invested in.

3. Skipping Sunscreen

Research shows that almost 90 percent of wrinkles are cause by UV damage, so clearly, skipping sunscreen is not a smart move. Apply it on your face, neck and hands every time you walk out the door and reapply it throughout the day—and wear it all year long.

4. Avoiding Exercise

Working out is essential for both your overall health and the youthful appearance eof your skin and body. Exercise stimulates blood flow and circulation, which flushes your skin with oxygen-rich blood and strengthens its ability to repair itself. In addition, you get that healthy, youthful glow that we’re all striving to achieve.

Do Facercise every day and avoid these mistakes at all costs and you’ll have great looking skin.
