26 vitamin C rich foods for building collagen

Samantha Dickey

Looking for a good collagen builder?  

Vitamin C in your diet is the answer.

Consuming raw uncooked foods rich in vitamin C is like visiting a high end luxury skincare counter.  Vitamin C is the primary essential skin needs to build collagen.

Adding dressing made with vitamin E rich oils like sunflower seed oil and safflower oil yields even more beauty benefits.  

Vitamin C and vitamin E together quench both water soluble and lipid soluble free radicals which can help keep skin from sagging, wrinkling prematurely, and looking older than it actually is.

We made a fast and easy breakfast with USDA certified organic lemon cucumbers, green cucumbers, and tomatoes from Adderson's Fresh Produce in Burke County, Georgia

1 cucumber has 30% vitamin C and 10% vitamin A.

1 tomato has 40% vitamin C an 20% vitamin A.

Here is a partial list of 26 vitamin C rich foods:
