Collagen is one of the essential building blocks to smooth, healthy skin, but as we age, collagen diminishes, eventually leading to fine lines and loss of volume. It sucks, we know, but we also have some great tips on how to boost collagen levels in your skin and retain what you’ve got.

#1 – Practice Safe Sunning

Sun protection acts as a barrier to prevent damaging and harmful UV Rays penetrating to areas such as the dermis where your collagen is  and destroying the cells. 90% of the symptoms of premature skin aging is due to UVA Rays, which are there all year round.

#2 – Eat Well

What you eat can play a significant role in your skin health and your skin’s ability to retain and create new collagen.

A diet high in antioxidants, fruits and vegetables, is a fundamental way to preserve our collagen and other tissues, and improve our ability to make new collagen.

#3 – Butt Out

If you haven’t resolved to stop smoking yet, we suggest you do — for your health and your skin. Avoid smoking, which contributes to collagen degradation as well as reducing the ability to make new collagen.

#4 – Apply a good topical antioxidant

We know eating foods rich in antioxidants can be good for the skin but you can also apply them topically (think products containing vitamins C and E). There is strong evidence that a good topical antioxidant reduces the injury effects of ultraviolet rays that get through a sunscreen, and some UV rays always gets through a sunscreen.

#5 – Use retinoids

One of the best ways to reduce the signs of aging and restore collagen is with retinoids.  Retinoids boost collagen production, and diminish fine lines and age spots. There is probably more evidence that these are effective at reducing signs of aging than any other ‘anti-aging’ cream.
