Staying Well with Frances: Collagen 101

Collagen 101

What is collagen?

Collagen has been a buzzword in the wellness community for the last several years, but you may not know exactly what it is or whether you need it. Let’s start with the basics: Collagen is a protein that makes up our skin, tendons, cartilage and connective tissue. It’s literally what holds us together. And it’s also the stuff that makes our skin appear plump and youthful.

Our bodies naturally make collagen, but as we age, we produce less. This starts around age 20 but doesn’t become noticeable until usually around 30. Aging doesn’t help, but sun exposure is the real culprit for making your skin look older because it damages collagen fibers.

How can I boost my collagen production?

The components of collagen, the amino acids proline, glycine and lysine, can be found in certain food sources. Top picks include bone broth, seafood, egg whites and chicken. And getting enough vitamin C-rich foods is also essential for the formation of collagen. Top vitamin C foods are citrus fruits (oranges, grapefruit, lemons), berries, bell peppers and broccoli. And the good news is that Avon has a supplemental collagen, re:tune Inner Beauty Collagen Booster, which can also help replace what your body isn’t making anymore.

How often should I take supplemental collagen?

Fortunately, collagen supplements are so easy to take! For maximum effectiveness they should be taken daily. Avon's Collagen Booster is a powder that can easily be stirred into your morning coffee or smoothie. It’s unflavored, so you can really add it to anything--even your yogurt or bowl of oatmeal.

There are hundreds of collagen products on the marketplace and it’s confusing to know which one is best for you. Avon’s re:tune Inner Beauty Collagen Booster is special because it’s clinically proven to reduce the appearance of crow’s feet and wrinkles and improve skin’s elasticity; after 12 weeks, skin appeared to be firmer and brighter. What are you waiting for? Avoid the lines (and wrinkles) and call your Avon Representative, today.
