Food to take care of our skin from the inside out

Alimentos para cuidar nuestra piel de adentro hacia afuera

As you know, at Labeau we are a community that believes that the products we use on our skin matter just as much as the food we eat. We care about living a healthy lifestyle and understand wellness from a holistic point of view where body and mind are totally connected. We believe that skin care is not only about using conscious, organic and eco-friendly cosmetics, but also about eating a balanced diet that provides the nutrients necessary for optimal health. Because skin care also happens from the inside out, we always encourage various habits that contribute to good health and better skin.
In this article we share with you some foods that promote the regeneration and optimal condition of our skin so we know what foods to eat to take care of our skin from the inside out.

Let's start with the "fundamental food".

Let's start with the base, water.

Although water is not a food in itself, properly hydrated skin tends to have greater elasticity and firmness, which helps prevent the early development of wrinkles and fine lines. In addition, consuming an adequate amount of water contributes to the elimination of toxins from the body through perspiration and kidney function, promoting healthier, impurity-free skin. It also prevents dryness, flaking and tightness of the skin.

Did you know that Labeau uses organic aloe vera water?
In order to provide maximum value with our products and following our sustainable principles, we have replaced most of the water in our formulas with organic Aloe Vera water. Aloe Vera water is the base of our products and among its benefits it provides a feeling of freshness, luminous skin, shiny and strong hair, helps the skin to regain its softness and protects it from environmental factors.



Food for optimal skin
Fruits and vegetables:
Including a diversity of different coloured fruits and vegetables in your diet can offer a wide variety of skin-friendly nutrients, promoting skin wellness and vitality. Fruits and vegetables are highly beneficial for the skin thanks to their abundant supply of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. These essential elements play a crucial role in preserving the health and vitality of the skin, providing defences against the adverse effects of the environment and the skin's ageing process.

Some ideal fruits and vegetables for the skin are:

Oranges: Rich in vitamin C, which is a potent antioxidant that helps protect the skin from free radical damage and promotes collagen production to keep the skin firm and elastic.

Pomegranates: They are an excellent source of antioxidants, including punicalagins and anthocyanins, which can help protect the skin from oxidative stress and keep it looking young and radiant.

Cucumbers: Cucumbers are high in water and have anti-inflammatory properties, making them excellent for soothing and cooling the skin.

Cherries, berries and blueberries: They contain antioxidants such as anthocyanins and vitamin C, which can help reduce inflammation and protect the skin from free radical damage.

Avocados: Avocados are rich in monounsaturated fatty acids, such as oleic acid, which help keep skin hydrated and supple. These fatty acids can also strengthen the skin barrier, helping to protect the skin from environmental damage. It is also an excellent source of vitamin E, an antioxidant that helps protect the skin from free radical damage.

Walnuts, almonds and seeds provide vitamin E, zinc and selenium, essential nutrients that contribute to better maintenance of our skin.

Yoghurt and kefir:
Gut health plays a critically important role in the development of our skin and these dairy products which are rich in probiotics, promote bacterial balance in the gut, linked to clearer, more radiant skin.

Foods rich in Zinc:
Present in foods such as beef, chicken, turkey, lentils and chickpeas, zinc is essential for wound healing and skin health.

More vegetables:
The extensive variety of vegetables allows us to vary our meals and thus make them diverse and tasty. In our recipes we can also include: spinach, which is rich in antioxidants such as vitamin C, vitamin E and beta-carotene, which protect the skin from free radical damage and promote skin cell regeneration. Broccoli contains vitamins A, C and E, along with antioxidants and minerals such as zinc, which keep skin healthy and radiant. Carrots are an excellent source of beta-carotene, an antioxidant that converts to vitamin A in the body, essential for healthy skin and vision. Peppers, especially brightly coloured ones such as red, orange and yellow, are rich in vitamin C, essential for collagen production and skin elasticity, and pumpkins, rich in antioxidants such as vitamin C and beta-carotene, also protect the skin.



When we see our health as a large, holistic, whole system, we understand that integrating healthy habits into our lives, along with a proper skin care routine, can contribute significantly to maintaining healthy skin.
