Stimulate Collagen Production in Your Skin

Top 5 ways to boost collagen naturally

Collagen is the main structural protein in our skin, it’s also vital to the function of our eyes and ligaments. When it comes to a youthful appearance collagen provides volume to the skin and acts like scaffolding, keeping our skin looking smooth and wrinkle free. As we age our collagen production naturally decreases and this shows as what we commonly term “ageing”. Our collagen begins to decrease in our early twenties. As we grow wiser with each decade the contours of the face begin to appear less defined, we see our skin losing tone and firmness and what feels like overnight, fine lines and wrinkles appear! Environmental stressors like UV rays, smoke and pollution also play a role in breaking down collagen. The good news is there are ways to preserve and stimulate collagen production in your skin, naturally at home with a holistic skincare regimen.

1. Collagen Boosting Serums

With our natural collagen production slowing as we age, feeding the skin with natural ingredients that encourage the healthy production of collagen while supporting cellular renewal is certainly worth the investment and daily commitment. Do your research and invest wisely. Synthetic fillers in mainstream beauty bring costs down to subsidise branding costs, but they have zero benefit on the skin function. When it comes to natural anti-ageing skincare there are a few key natural ingredients that bring a strong game in delivering results. Natural ingredients like vitamin C, Hyaluronic acid, AHAs and vitamin A stimulate collagen production in your skin and have several benefits in common, boosting the efficacy of one and other when paired together. They’re what we call perfect partners!

Vitamin C & Hyaluronic Acid

Hydrated skin not only looks more youthful, but it functions at it optimum. Hydrated skin sheds dead skin cells boosting cellular renewal which stimulates collagen production in your skin, for plumper cheeks and firmer looking contours. Those fresh new cells also help to give you a radiance and glow.

Hyaluronic acid boosts water in the skin. It’s a miracle product that holds up to 1000x its weight in water. This water is drawn into the skin and benefits compound with daily use. Hyaluronic acid is often teamed with Vitamin C and other antioxidants for an anti-ageing powerhouse combo. Vitamin C is an antioxidant and brightening multitasker. Antioxidants defend the skin from damaging environmental aggressors and bring anti-inflammatory compounds that work to calm, brighten, and strengthen the skin by stimulating collagen production. You can use these serums daily morning and/ or night under your moisturiser.

The Votary Brightening Hyaluronic Serum is a multi-functional serum that combines the hydrating powers of Hyaluronic acid and AHAs to hydrate and plump the skin while promoting cell renewal and restoring radiance. We love the addition of Bilberry fruit extract, a powerful antioxidant for its calming and brightening abilites.

Looking for a collagen boosting night serum? When introducing a night serum you can’t go past a natural Vitamin A based serum. Vitamin A – aka Retinoid is dubbed the skin “anti-ageing” vitamin. There are endless retinol products on the market, we prefer natural pro-retinoids or retinol alternatives that deliver the same collagen boosting benefits without the inflammation and irritation.

Pro tip: Inflammation accelerates skin ageing, so it’s best minimised and avoided.

Votary Intense Night Oil with rosehip, retinoid and Australian sandalwood extract work together to restore the look of the skin while stimulating cell turnover and stimulating the production of healthy collagen.

Alpha Hydroxy Acid – AHAs

Gentle and well tolerated by most skin types AHAs are vital in a well-ageing regimen for boosting cell regeneration and stimulating collagen production in your skin. AHAs also help even the skin tone, fading skin spots and uneven texture. Amala Gel Aqua Peel is formulated with 15% AHA fruit acids to purify and boost collagen production for plumper and smoother skin.

Using a natural retinol alternative, such as Moth Bean Retinol-Alternative and French Pine Extract, in your daily moisturiser offers a myriad of benefits for your skin. The AMALA Powerhouse Face Cream brings natural and science to the forefront with this clinically proven formulation that rivals the most prestige mainstream brands. Moth Bean Retinol-Alternative is rich in Vitamin A, providing similar anti-ageing effects to traditional retinol without the potential irritation. It promotes collagen production, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while French Pine Extract is renowned for its antioxidant properties, protecting the skin from environmental damage and free radicals.

4. Facial Massage

Prevention is Better than Cure: Natural SPF

UV rays are the number one no-no when it comes to fending off the signs of premature ageing. Daily exposure and certainly over-exposure to the sun causes free radicals which breakdown healthy cells depleting collagen levels in the skin. That is why you often see skin that has been exposed to endless sun tanning look saggy and crepey. People often refer to its worn and “leathery” appearance. Introducing a natural sunscreen into your daily skincare routine is no extra effort for a big pay-off. Applied after serums and before moisturiser we love an all natural mineral barrier SPF to ensure our skin is well protected and cared for at the same time. If you’re unsure on where to start, read our blog on Why you should use Natural sunscreen and choose a natural SPF you will commit to daily.
