A lot of our beauty woes are because after the age of 35, our body starts producing less and less collagen. That means our skin loses firmness and gradually starts to wrinkle and sag. Many of us try expensive cosmetics, supplements and even surgical procedures when the best solution might be much simpler.

➡️ Some of the most basic foods can do wonders for our skin.

The first magic food is actually bone broth, and don’t be like yuck, yes, it sadly tastes worse then it sounds but lucky for you there are ways nowadays to make almost anything taste amazing and besides the effects it has on the skin in as little as a week is wonderful – when you eat bone broth, you’re really eating cooked collagen. This is a powerful way to restore collagen in your skin and make those wrinkles disappear. Sure, you could find a lot of products with “collagen” on the label, but dietary collagen is more potent — it mainlines collagen to your cells.

Additionally, the gelatin derived from the collagen you get in bone broth heals your digestive tract which is a surefire way to prevent inflammation and aging skin.

Believe it or not, the next one is very, very easy, 
Dark leafy greens like spinach and kale offer antioxidants that protect against the free radicals that breakdown collagen. Red veggies like beets, tomatoes and red peppers are full of lycopene, which boosts collagen and protects against sun damage. Orange produce like carrots and sweet potatoes are loaded with vitamin A, which restores collagen that’s been damaged.

SIDE NOTE ➡️Different types of fish and grass fed meats will help also but i don’t want to get to much into animals and such as I can’t find any non-harmful ways to get the ingredients needed so if interested please google it, or read a chefs food dietary.

➡️ Berries of all types they’re all loaded with antioxidants that fight those skin-ravaging free radicals while boosting collagen.

Next will help with three things, your skin, keep vampires away (sorry twilight fans) and also maybe make someone not want to kiss you, yes I’m taking about garlic boys and girls, Garlic offers lipoic acid and taurine, both of which help rebuild damaged collagen. It’s also an excellent source of sulfur, an essential part of collagen production.

So the next time you’re tempted by an ad for Botox, grab a big bowl of bone broth and a handful of berries instead. There are lots of foods out there that can help keep your skin beautiful and youthful from the inside out, but just getting plenty of these basics will be a big improvement for most of us.
