1. Red-Colored Fruits and Veggies

Fresh fruits and vegetables that are red or orange in color (like apple, strawberry, cherry, orange, carrot, beet, sweet potato, red bell pepper, etc.) are well-known for their high antioxidant content. The lycopenes present in these items contribute significantly to the increased collagen production, which eventually gives a young-looking skin by preventing DNA damages in the cells.

2. Citrus Fruit

Citrus fruits like lime, lemon and orange have very high vitamin C content. This is an antioxidant vitamin, which prevents our skin from getting damaged by free radicals and gives the production of collagen a boost as well. Result? Perfect flawless skin.

3. Cabbage

There is a huge variety of cabbages (such as bok choy, choy sum, napa, cannonball, savoy, red drumhead, and so on) and all of them are known to contain loads of antioxidants as well as phytonutrients including lutenin, zeaxanthin, thiocyanates, isothiocynates, etc. These play a key role in stimulating the collagen production in our skin and increasing its elasticity.

4. Olive

Both green and black olives are widely known for being collagen-rich foods. Basically, olives are high in minerals like sulphur, which perks up the activities of various enzymes in our body and eventually stimulates the production of collagen in our skin. Consequently, our skin becomes firm, smooth and bright.

5. Avocado Oil

The oil extracted from the magical fruit avocado is packed with antioxidant vitamin E and omega-3 essential fatty acids. Both of them can prevent our skin from damages, keep it moisturized and rejuvenate it by encouraging the production of collagen
