Feeding your skin the right nutrients is one thing, but feeding your body is the right thing. That’s if you want to combat inflammation and aging too fast.

Like all other tissues in your body, collagen is made from the raw materials you eat, it’s one of the most important proteins in your body, unfortunately collagen is sensitive to any imbalances you may have, so it’s imperative to watch what you eat – particularly if you suffer from dry skin, irritations, inflammation, cellulite, scarring and acne.


Skin health is so dependent on a healthy diet, and it has a lot to do with the individual, although you may have great skin from your parents, theses genes can change according to your environment and the toxins you’re exposed to on a daily basis.

The quality of your food depends on the strength of your collagen production, it’s comes in all different shapes and sizes and the longer the collagen molecules the better the quality your body is in, and not only will your skin resist aging, but you will have a better chance of avoiding joint problems later on.


How do we correct these sneaky skin imperfections and aging? Eat some collagen! Eating meat off the bone is great, and using the leftover bones in soups, stews and broth floods your bloodstream with collagen goodness (keep it free-range and organic).

We need to have the correct balance of protein in our diet too, and this mix can only be discovered through Metabolic Typing. It's not a diet or fad, in fact it's individualised program and you get your very own food map which you are totally and utterly accountable for. I have been on it for eight years and I am discovering new and amazing things about my body and what type of food it requires. If you would like to learn more about this, head to our brother company
