At Tehrani Plastic Surgery, we can do a lot to help improve how you look on the outside. But you also can play a big part in improving your appearance if you are picky about the foods you put on the inside.
Your diet shows on your skin
A poor diet will never help give you glowing skin – or smooth nails of shiny hair, either! Your outsides in general say a lot about what you’re eating and what’s happening with your overall health. So if you want to give your appearance a boost, before or after a cosmetic procedure, add these beauty foods to your diet:
That might sound counter intuitive, but fatty fish such as salmon and halibut, give you protein, omega-3 fatty acids, iron and vitamin B12, all in one food. And these nutrients help support healthy skin.
Vegetables high in beta-carotene
For example, carrots, spinach, broccoli and romaine. These veggies provide vitamin A, a powerful antioxidant with anti-aging properties. Tomatoes are another powerhouse antioxidant, great for your skin because they’re loaded with vitamin C and carotenoids, which increase your skin’s sun protection abilities.
It’s full of copper, zinc and B vitamins. Zinc helps fight against acne, reducing inflammation and killing bacteria.
Eat your beans and get the fiber, protein, zinc and antioxidants that can increase collagen production. Collagen is what gives your skin its elasticity, with the added advantage of a healthy glow.
They’re packed with skin strengthening nutrients, including protein, vitamin A, vitamin E, iron, vitamin B7 and vitamin B12
Blueberries are known for having higher antioxidant properties than any other fruit or vegetable. They fight off free radicals and other aging influences on your skin and entire body. In addition to anti-aging capabilities, blueberries also combat acne.
The boost that only we can give
