If you enjoy eating eggs, you already know they are tasty and nutritious; yet, only a cosmetic surgeon would know and tell you that they can also greatly benefit your skin! Whether you’re planning to help the Easter Bunny prepare baskets for kids, or not, decide to add eggs to your daily diet; or as a part of your daily skin care regimen. Whether you live in the greater Houston area, or anywhere in the U.S., you can enjoy all the benefits of eggs long after the season is over. A cosmetic surgeon will tell you that there are at least 5 healthy facial skin benefits found in delicious eggs!

#1 Vitamin A Has “EGGSellent” Benefits…

Your cosmetic surgeon will agree that Vitamin A is a common ingredient in skin care products. You may have seen it listed on anti-aging creams. You can use an egg as a facial mask in conjunction with facial creams; but it is better if you eat the egg.

One large boiled egg has 5% of your daily value of Vitamin A. If you are dyeing eggs for children, make some for yourself. Take brightly-colored eggs to work in your bagged lunch. An egg salad sandwich is good, but if you take hard boiled eggs you can give a treat to a coworker.

Vitamin A promotes skin health. It helps remove dead skin cells and grow fresh cells. If your skin is dull or dry, you will notice the difference. If you have skin conditions such as- psoriasis, eczema, or acne, eggs alone may not cure the issues. However, a cosmetic surgeon can recommend treatments that will work for you, and you’ll start to see your skin improve.

Exfoliating is not the only benefit. The vitamin also affects the dermis. It makes the dermis healthier, and reduces wrinkles. Along with using an anti-aging cream, have the benefits of Vitamin A for lunch.

#2 Protect Your Skin With Antioxidants…

There are many health benefits to antioxidants, and skin health is one example. The antioxidant-packed eggs you have for a meal or a snack can prevent skin damage.

If you are showing signs of natural aging, free radicals may be partially to blame. The antioxidants in eggs can start to repair the damage. Your skin can look younger and healthier, regardless of your age. Egg whites help to lift the skin and smooth out wrinkles.

#3 Protein In Eggs For Beautiful Skin…

Cosmetic surgeons have learned that the collagen in your skin is actually protein. Cosmetic surgeons know that you may not be a senior citizen before you start to see signs of premature aging. Collagen production can start to decrease around 30 years of age. The protein in eggs can help your skin produce new, healthy collagen.

Skin will be thicker, firmer, and more elastic. When you have protein daily, your facial skin will look younger. Those fine lines will be replaced by smooth skin. While fully-cooked eggs lose some of their antioxidant properties, two egg yolks contain the same amount of antioxidants as a serving of cranberries.

#4 Reduce Premature Wrinkling With Vitamin K…

The older you are, the more your body needs Vitamin K. When you look in the mirror and see premature wrinkling, Vitamin K deficiency may be one reason. A cosmetic surgeon will tell you that Vitamin K is essential for skin elasticity. The wrinkles and lines can be smoothed away when the vitamin helps your skin develop its natural elastin. In the case of Vitamin-K, the egg white also has the same properties to lift and firm the skin.

#5 Moisturized & Youthful Skin From Potassium…

One large hard-boiled egg contains 63 milligrams of potassium. This mineral can do wonders for your skin. Even if you have finished hopping down the bunny trail for this year, make sure you get enough potassium every day.

Potassium deficiency makes skin dry. At its worst, skin can actually become hard. As potassium is an electrolyte that is easily depleted, you can replenish it with eggs. Potassium will keep your skin hydrated and more elastic. Youthful, healthy skin can be yours by adding eggs to your daily diet.

How Your Cosmetic Surgeon Can Help…

Perhaps you have skin that has suffered in some way, and all the benefits of eggs may not be enough to correct the problems. While you should continue eating a balanced diet, consider the treatment procedures performed by a professional cosmetic surgeon that can help you look better; and add that awesome boost of confidence that you need.

Fine lines and wrinkles cannot disappear overnight. A cosmetic surgeon can correct these issues with a non-invasive procedure. The simplest treatment uses injectable fillers.

Fat grafting is a second option. Cosmetic surgeons can use fat from another part of your body to create volume in your face.

Large pores can ruin your appearance, and increase your risk of blemishes. There are a number of procedures a cosmetic surgeon can use to correct this problem. Common procedures include intense pulsed light, microdermabrasion, skin needling, laser skin resurfacing, and a carbon spectra peel. All of these procedures are safe, effective, and produce little to no discomfort.

Unsightly blemishes can be removed with cosmetic radio-surgery. It is non-invasive, and does not penetrate the skin. It can remove warts, moles, and broken capillaries in addition to blemishes.

If your skin is extremely oily, laser therapy may help. The sebaceous glands will produce and excrete less oil.

Your cosmetic surgeon has procedures for both active acne and acne scars. There are laser therapies that can make your skin clear, smooth, and free from scars and acne. A cosmetic surgeon will evaluate your condition, and recommend the therapy that is best for you.

Healthy Skin For Life

The days are over when cosmetic surgery was considered vanity. While normal aging does not have to ruin your appearance, neither do other factors such as, a poor diet, health issues, or too much sun exposure. It is never too soon to take care of your skin, nor is it too late.

Start by developing a sensible diet that you can stick to. Include eggs with a meal or for a snack. You can add eggs to recipes, or have them fried, hard boiled, soft boiled, poached, or baked. Eggs are a super delicious way to have healthy, beautiful skin.

If you have a special skin problem that cannot be corrected with a healthy diet, visit a cosmetic surgeon. He or she can choose specific procedures and skincare products that will help restore your natural beauty, and give you the healthy fresh face you desire.
