When we realize that we are actually growing older every day and aging every minute, we start to discover that our bodies and faces will not stay as young and youthful as they are today, which is not a bad thing. The only bad thing that’s happening is when we treat this whole situation recklessly.
Do you know that many of our choices could terribly ruin our skin?
Since fate is already doing its share of making us lose our shining skin, we should not help it get there fast. So we should, at the very least, take care of our faces by cleaning and moisturizing it daily. Also, cut off a few foods from our diet because they are surprisingly harming it.
According to many nutritionists, we consume many things daily that sucking the life out of our skin and we are not even aware of it. It is time to raise awareness about this issue and discover the foods that are ruining our skin. Maybe we will be able to cut them off, or at least try…
#1 – Doughnuts
Whether you made them at home or bought them from the bakery next to your house, doughnuts are extremely delicious but extremely harmful to your skin.
If you want to get one step closer to skin woes, eat a mixture of sugar and grease. It is bad news for the police officers, it seems!
#2 – Soda
Soda is something we are basically in love with due to its addicting taste and mixture, but unfortunately, this beverage can ruin the formation of collagen – the tissue that helps our skin to remain firm.
Also, let’s not forget that soda can cause obesity, which is why we have to stay away from it as far as possible and replace it with seltzer, unsweetened tea or just water.
#3 – Fried foods
There are many reasons why we have to stay away from fried foods because they really don’t do any good to our health, and let’s not forget the old wives’ tale about getting pimples and zits from touching our faces with greasy fingers. After all, consuming too many high-fat foods can promote skin puffiness that no one really likes!
#4 – Alcohol
Alcohol might be one of the main reasons why we survive our long work days, but the effect of it on our bodies and skin may not be worth it. The alcoholic beverages can suck the moisture out of our skin and give us a washed-out look.
However, you don’t have to cut off booze completely, just drink in moderation and take a few extra cups of water.
#5 – White rice
White rice is like white bread; it is very high on the glycemic index. First, it is not healthy unless you are eating with a higher-protein food like beans, chicken or peanut butter. Plus, it is almost impossible to digest.
#6 – Candy
There is a very obvious reason why we always stop ourselves from eating candy, but now you will have one more reason to stay away from it a lot further: The processed sugar doesn’t do well to our skin at all. Instead, it promotes inflammation and damages it horribly. Shall we say goodbye to candy forever?
#7 – Coffee
Yes, you will still not cut it off regardless of what we say, we understand. But drinking too much coffee every day will open the doors to many skin issues. The caffeine dehydrates our skin and promotes the appearance of the fine lines. Plus, it may affect your sleep and cause insomnia, which will also affect your skin dramatically.
#8 – Processed Meats
Consuming a lot of high-sodium and high-fat processed meats will not do any good to your skin, including hot dogs and salami. In case you have to eat them or you just can’t live without them, enjoy them in moderation and always drink extra water afterward.
#9 – Condiments
Even though it is hard to live without condiments, we still have to acknowledge the fact that they are the hidden source of sodium and sugar. Ketchup, soy sauce, barbecue sauce, and many more can add a lot of skin distress, which is why it is important to keep your portions in moderation.
