Skin is the last to benefit from collagen when levels fall low, that is why tell-tale signs of ageing show first on our face. Collagen is indeed the key to youthful skin. Now, there is a breakthrough way to stop ageing in its tracks. Using the latest USA formulation, COLLA-e® Collagen Drink is enriched with superior anti-oxidants and vitamins.

Top 3 Winners

First and foremost, DO NOT SMOKE. Similarly, consume alcohol in moderation, as alcohol has the same effect on the skin as smoking. For natural solutions, consume foods that increase collagen production and benefit skin. Dark green vegetables like spinach, kale and asparagus have lutein, which increases hydration and elasticity in skin. Red fruits and vegetables such as red peppers, beets and tomatoes have lycopenes, an antioxidant that increases collagen production. Vitamin C is also essential for efficient synthesis of collagen. Prevent additional collagen loss by always wearing sunscreen when outdoors, even on cloudy days. – Yeo Khar Joo

One of the ways to increase the production of collagen in the body is by eating more food that provides protein and vitamin C. Besides that, we can apply cream that contains rich amount of collagen and vitamins on the skin. I make sure that I apply my homemade mask for production of collagen. I mix two teaspoons of avocado oil with 1/4 cup of honey. I apply it on my face and wash away after 20 minutes. I also make sure that I maintain a healthy lifestyle by exercising well and refraining from getting stressed out. I also try to apply sunblock lotion before getting out of the house, as direct contact with the sun will damage the collagen in our skin. – Ang Qiao Tian

Every morning, I will mix one tablespoon of amino collagen fish powder with one glass of warm water 250ml. I only drink one tablespoon of amino collagen fish powder per day because one tablespoon already contains the 5000mg of collagen that my body needs. I consume foods that are high in proteins. This is because part of the proteins that we consume is converted into collagen. I also eat fruits (kiwi, pomegranate, strawberry, oranges) and vegetables (broccoli, xiao bei chye, chye sim) that contain vitamins C. Last but not least, I try to keep myself free from stress by listening to music and doing stretching exercises. When going out, I apply SPF lotion to protect myself from ultraviolet rays. – Lee Yew Hoon
