Vitamin C –

Rich in oranges, broccoli, kiwi, strawberry, and bell peppers; vitamin C plays a crucial role in the creation of collagen. Additionally, vitamin C is an antioxidant that lowers inflammation in the body. The body struggles to produce collagen efficiently when too inflamed. 

Zinc –

An essential mineral, zinc helps activate enzymes in the skin that remodel collagen that is damaged. The skin is constantly turning over, detoxifying old cells and protein structures like collagen to make way for new, healthy skin tissue. 

Vitamin A –

Popular skincare ingredients called retinoids are derived from Vitamin A. The turnover of cells in the skin slows as we age, and vitamin A helps pick up the pace! Vitamin A reduces fine lines and wrinkles and reveals glowing, fresh skin. Sweet potatoes, spinach, and squash are high in vitamin A. 

Copper –

Collagen fibers are woven together to make them strong, which is why skin lacking in collagen is crepey and thin. Copper helps weave collagen fibers together to help with skin firmness. Great news- chocolate is rich in copper!
