Because they have this type of composition, food products are more likely to cause inflammation of the skin and, therefore, can interfere greatly in the healing process, increasing the chances of getting scars sought or developing complications such as adhesions.

Thus, oily foods should be removed from the diet whenever it is necessary to promote good healing, as in the postoperative period of surgery, when you have a wound or when you get a tattoo or piercing.

List of oily foods

The oily foods that should be avoided during a healing process include:

Ready soft drinks and juices

Fried foods, such as French fries, pastries and other snacks

Fast food

Pork and processed meats, such as sausage, ham, sausage, bacon, bologna and salami

Sweets, stuffed cookies, cakes, ready-made pastries, chocolates, cereal bars

Instant noodles, diced beef broth, frozen ready food, ice cream

Alcoholic beverages.

Excessive consumption of these foods increases inflammation and hinders the healing process of the skin. The ideal is that these foods are not part of the dietary routine, and that they are not consumed for at least 1 week after surgery, placement of a piercing or tattoo, for example.

What to eat to speed healing

To speed up the skin’s healing process, foods rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds, such as omega-3, should be consumed. Among the most antioxidant foods are: tomatoes, berries, citrus fruits like orange and acerola, and herbs like garlic, onions and saffron.

Anti-inflammatory foods are those rich in good fats such as chestnuts, salmon, tuna, sardines, olive oil, peanuts, flaxseed, chia and sesame. In addition, taking 1 to 2 cups of anti-inflammatory teas can also help a lot in healing, and you can use herbs such as chamomile, ginger, cloves or rosemary.
