DIY Face Masks To Boost Collagen Level In Skin

By: Kumutha G

The one protein that your body relies on to keep its hair strands from shedding, maintain elasticity of the skin and to give connective tissues the ability to hold everything in place is collagen.

It makes up 30% of protein in your hair and 70% of protein in your skin. With that ratio in mind, you can determine just how important collagen is to maintain your youthful look. More than you can imagine.

Even though your body continues its collagen production throughout its lifetime, the quantity certainly decreases with time. And many lifestyle patterns like faulty diet, hormonal imbalance and stress further contribute to slowing down the production.

So, how can you restore the collagen balance in your body?

Step 1: Bring about necessary changes in your diet. Consume food rich in collagen. Refrain from consuming alcohol or chain smoking.

Step 2: Take time out of your hectic schedule to relax your mind, body and soul. Step 3: Exercise to boost blood circulation and metabolism, which in turn can kick up the collagen production.
