Did you know your diet has a huge impact on the health of your skin?

One of the best diets for healthy skin is a Ketogenic diet. It’s low-carb, high-fat and very little sugar. Keto’s purpose is to make your body highly efficient at burning fat for energy - so paired with working out - it helps boost brain power and lose excess weight.

The higher levels of healthy fats and leafy greens are full of antioxidants and collagen-building proteins - all of which protect your skin against aging and damage. The antioxidants (good) in these foods help rid the body of free radicals (bad) and protects the skin from sun damage that can accelerate aging.

Here are some of the best keto-friendly (and skin friendly) foods:

  1. Eggs

Eggs are full of zeaxanthin and lutein, types of antioxidants. Like we talked about above, antioxidants protect your skin from free radicals and damage - like brown spots, wrinkles and even skin cancer.

  1. Seafood

Seafood is full of Omega-3’s, which can reduce acne and help neutralize the ph of your skin. Salmon, lobster, and tuna are great options.

  1. Leafy Greens

Foods like kale, cabbage, brussel sprouts, and broccoli are rich in antioxidants and vitamin A - both of which, do a lot for your skin.

  1. Nuts and Seeds

Nuts like almonds, walnuts and sunflower seeds help to keep moisture into the skin, helping hydrate from the inside, out.  

  1. Olive Oil

Healthy oils are rich in antioxidants, but also have really good fats which help cells resist wrinkling and sun damage.
