If you’re getting a facelift, you have many allies on your side. Everyone at Front Range Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery is in your corner, but they aren’t the only ones! There are many times of food that can speed your recovery and ensure your skin truly looks better than ever before. In our last blog, we talked about vitamin-C rich foods that stimulate collagen and honey that heals wounds faster. Today, we have two more food items that your healing skin will love!
Seeds and Nuts
Your skin needs healthy fats in order to keep its oil glands going strong. Your skin’s oil glands keep your skin from drying out and act as its first defense. The polyunsaturated omega-6 oils you get from nuts and seeds are essential for your skin, and the average American’s diet doesn’t include them. Even better, seeds and nuts provide vitamin E, which also benefits your skin. Stock up on these powerful allies today!
Foods High in Lycopene
Lycopene can actually help protect you from sunburn – its benefits to your skin are that powerful. Chow down on watermelon, guava, and papaya to get fresh helpings of this great ingredient for your skin!
