Somebody asked me if they need to take a collagen supplement, for their skin, or can they eat foods rich in collagen. Fish, red vegetables, orange vegetables, berries all increase/boost collagen. Soy, white tea, egg whites, garlic and oysters, boost collagen – within the dermis (below the outermost layer of skin), the foundation of connective tissue that supports the skin’s structure. Too bad egg whites, soy and tomatoes are not recommended for my blood-type.
