Easy but effective steps to Boost Collagen in Skin.
If in your 20s the mirror was your best friend, around 50 many of us don’t want to really look at it anymore.
Our skin changes rapidly, and so does our self esteem, mood and whole body.
We go from no-more-attractive to I-am-ugly and I-am-old or sometimes even worse.
Is this something we can’t change? Is it really inevitable???
Remember: only 5 to 10% of our aging is down to genes! So we can do a lot!
All we need is to make a decision. Begin with this mantra:
I love myself, my body and it’s time to pay back!
I will start to care about myself in the same way I am caring for my family, friends and children.
Where should you start?
Begin with your skin: your largest organ and with its regenerating force: collagen.
Yes, collagen production starts to decline after you turn 30, but it’s not the end of the story.
Sagging, thin skin can be pushed far away in the future by following these 3 easy steps:
Help your blood move around the body to deliver collagen and elastin to your skin, joints, tissues and ligaments.
This is an easy and fun way to improve collagen delivery and even better: you can choose the way you enjoy the most!
Dance, stretch in yoga or pilates, swim, walk or work in the garden: every little activity will help!
You can even choose to try something you were dreaming to do but never did. I decided to try adult ballet for example. When I was kid I loved ballerinas and ballet. I was dreaming to be one of them,but everyone told me: look at yourself, you can’t be a ballerina!
Now I can, as adult ballet classes are easily accessible and I can do it even at home. I can make my dream become a reality!
Thank your body for the hard work and book a good massage session (or a few)!
Massage is all about treating yourself and helping your stiff or strained ligaments and joints to relax. It helps improve your blood supply straight away.
Massage is actually one of the treatments that gives benefits to the whole body and helps to balance out everything, including your hormones!
It’s also no surprise that after a massage we all look and feel invigorated and younger. Do you think it’s an accident?
A new way to plan your shopping list so you nourish and boost your collagen production.
Food is our fuel and the building material for cells. Collagen is the same as the oil for a car: its viscous liquid helps to move your joints, keep your skin supple and all the tissues in good working order.
To build collagen you need 9 vitamins and minerals and 2 essential amino acids. It all comes through your food. A truly important reason to eat healthily!
Add a rainbow of fruits and vegetables to your menu:
- Greens from all kinds of salads, spinach, broccoli and avocados
- Reds from amazing, tasty berries, tomatoes, watermelon and red peppers
- Yellows from oranges, carrots, mangoes, apricots and peaches
- Purples from red onions, red cabbage, blueberries and plums.
Top these with nuts, seeds and raw cacao powder (full of happiness hormones!).
You will see the benefits within 30 days.
This is the time needed to change your cells, so all the benefits of the live, vibrant food will show up on your face. 🙂
These amazing plants will also give you many more benefits and slow down aging significantly!
