* Remember to feed your skin from the inside too – collagen which gives skin firmness and support is made from amino acids that are found in protein-rich food such as eggs, meat, fish, nuts and seeds. Vitamin C is also essential for the synthesis of collagen and is a powerful antioxidant while purple foods that contain anthcyanins – blueberries, blackcurrants and prunes, for example – support collagen production. Dark green vegetables such as spinach, kale and asparagus also help strengthen the body’s ability to manufacture collagen.
