- Poor skin texture
The key to the success of these treatments is your body’s ability to heal itself. As old cells are removed by the treatment, new cells take their place. In order for these cells to have the best possible appearance in terms of even color, smooth texture, and high elasticity, you need to support cell growth with superior nutrition. Here are the most important vitamins for skin rejuvenation and the best foods to find them in.
Vitamin A is found in abundance in foods like leafy greens, sweet potatoes, pumpkins, milk, and eggs. This vitamin is essential for rebuilding skin tissues to correct issues of roughness or dryness.
There are actually eight forms of vitamin B, all of which are important for healthy skin. The most important B vitamins include B1, which helps improve circulation, B3, which helps prevent acne, and B6, which helps maintain good skin tone. B1 is found in nuts and raisins, B3 is found in veggies like carrots, tomatoes, and broccoli, and B6 is found in poultry, fish, spinach, and whole grains.
Vitamin C is very important for skin repair in general, but its most important function is to aid in the production of collagen. Collagen is what makes skin firm, resilient, and less likely to wrinkle. Some excellent sources of vitamin C include papayas, oranges, broccoli, kale, and strawberries.
Vitamin E is considered essential for skin repair and may actually speed up the natural healing process. Healthy levels of vitamin E can also help protect skin against future damage. Add vitamin E to your diet with foods like almonds, avocados, mangos, sweet potatoes, and olive oil.
What to Avoid During Recovery
After a cosmetic treatment designed to rejuvenate your skin, avoiding skin-damaging influences is just as important as embracing skin-repairing influences. Stay out of the sun and try to avoid exposure to cigarette smoke and other pollutants. Also, do your best to reduce stress levels and stay relaxed throughout the healing period.
