Top foods for healthy, glowing skin
At Lük Beautifood, we’re all about educating people on the link between food and beauty. We want to show you how you can get glowing, healthy skin
simply from eating the right foods (or as we call them, beautyfoods!). It's all about highlighting, not hiding, your own natural beauty.
When we talk about foods that "feed your beauty", we're talking about foods that contain the Triple A's: antioxidants, anti-inflammatories and essential fatty acids. These key nutrients feed your skin, keeping it healthy, clear, hydrated, and wrinkle-free. The health of skin cells is directly influenced by what nutrients are available to them. When your body lacks the right amount, or the right kinds of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, enzymes and essential fatty acids, it shows - usually through dull, irritated, uneven and prematurely aged skin. Although lifestyle and genetics play a large part in your skin's health, you still need to look after what you're putting in your body to get the best out of it. Read on to find out how you can eat yourself to glowing, beautiful and healthy skin through alkalising your body, eating anti-inflammatory foods and giving yourself a daily antioxidant boost.
