At my clinic I get a lot of questions about collagen, especially what it exactly does and how to “get more”.
Before starting to talk about collagen, I want to talk about aging of the skin in general. Wrinkles, loss of volume and loss of density, and each of them affects the appearance of the face in a different way. All indicates that the fine lines are the first to appear in the outside corners of the eyes, while the expression lines usually appear in the forehead area, and the thick lines appear between the nose and the mouth.
“On the other hand, the diminution of the volume and the facial contour can give the face an aspect of tired, sad or fatigued; While loss of density manifests as thinner and fainter skin ”
Collagen allows an efficient resolution of skin lesions such as facial redness and signs of photoaging. It causes a visible improvement in the quality of the skin.
But where to obtain more collagen?

A Bright Skin diet include Soy Products like Soy Milk and Cheese to get rid of wrinkles and fine lines. The soybean plant Improves the production of collagen that gives the skin its strength and elasticity. One important benefits of soy products in skin care is firming skin.
- Vegetables and red fruits
Red fruits such as apples, oranges, cherries, strawberries and vegetables such as red beets, peppers, act as anti-aging foods that increase collagen. The presence of antioxidants like lycopene in red fruits and vegetables increase the production of collagen.
If you want healthy skin, be sure to include beans in your diet. Beans will help to retain water that fills your skin so that lines and wrinkles become less visible.
Carrots are high in vitamin A which increases the production of collagen and decreases the degradation of collagen and elastin which causes the aging of the skin. Vitamin A stimulates the dermis where collagen, elastin, and blood vessels are present and also helps to improve blood flow to the skin surface.
- Flax seeds and walnuts
Linseed is an Incredible source of Omega 3 Fatty Acids. A quarter cup of nuts contains about 2.7 grams and a quarter of a cup of Flaxseed Seeds contains approximately 6.3 grams of Omega 3 Fatty Acids. Omega 3 is immensely necessary for health, but our food is the only source we can obtain it since our body does not produce it.
