I haven’t met anyone yet who’s woken up with a crater on their face thinking, “oh yes, I like you. I hope you stay around as long as possible.” Without adequate nutrition, healing of the skin can be impaired and prolonged
The GG top nutrients for wound healing
1️⃣ Zinc affects all phases of wound healing. It’s essential for the structure and integrity of the skin as well as the multiplication of skin cells. Research shows that sufferers of acne lesions typically already have low serum zinc levels. Increasing in the diet can reduce the frequency and severity of acne lesions. Zinc also supports the release of other nutrients such as vitamin A for increased healing. 🍴 Sources include: lean meats, shrimp, cashews, lentils and seeds.
2️⃣ Vitamin C - a building block for collagen that builds those beautiful proteins in your skin. Collagen improves your skin’s elasticity and keeps that youthful complexion around as long as possible. 🍴 Sources include citrus fruits, capsicums, broccoli, kale, pineapple, brussel sprouts and strawberries.
3️⃣ H2O - Logical I know, but supporting hydration supports circulation increasing the availability of these nutrients to the site of healing. Water also supports all elimination pathways to ensure waste is cleared away from the skin and returns hydrated, plump and beautiful. Aim for 2L of water per day.
