Vitamin cocktail for your skin

Summer sun and heat can wreak havoc on your skin. Here’s how to fight back and combat the signs
of ageing 

Long periods exposed to the sun’s rays and heat, whether sunbathing or going about your daily business, can cause dehydration, dullness, wrinkles and sunspots that add to signs of ageing. One way to minimise these harmful effects and give your skin a fighting chance is to feed it with vitamins and antioxidants through diet and cosmetic medicine.

Vitamin therapy provides a tailor-made cocktail of vitamins that work together to improve overall skin health. It replenishes moisture, restores elasticity and firmness, smooths texture, and acts as a natural filler. Plus, it boosts collagen production, improves blood flow to your skin and encourages cell renewal.

Mesotherapy with vitamins is a type of treatment that involves injecting a customized cocktail of vitamins and nutrients directly into your skin. This treatment can only be carried out by accredited professionals qualified to assess your needs and select a tailor-made blend of vitamins and other active ingredients that suit your skincare needs.

This is a unisex treatment suitable for all types of skin. It provides extra-deep hydration, enhancing the skin’s brightness, restoring radiance and leaving you looking younger, smoother and plumper. It is a minimally invasive and practically painless procedure with very low or no allergic or adverse side effects or reactions.

Different beauty clinics offer variations of this technique. For example, Ability Salud’s Vitamin Cocktail treatment uses facial microinjections to deliver a selection of specific vitamins that nourish your skin from within. Vitamins A, B, C, and E are the most common ingredients, along with coenzyme Q10 and ferulic acid.

Combine professional mesotherapy with a vitamin-rich diet to give your skin a revitalising boost. Focus on brightly coloured fruit and vegetables like carrots, apricots and peppers, and greens like spinach, broccoli, and asparagus. These are rich in folic acid, antioxidants, and beta-carotene, which help protect your skin from sun damage.

Healthy fats are equally as important. A good source is avocados, packed with omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins A, C, and E, which help keep your skin hydrated and supple.
