Those who eat unhealthy can not only favour a wide variety of diseases but also damage the skin of the face. You should therefore avoid certain foods that can cause acne, inflammation, or other skin conditions.
For example, high blood sugar levels can lead to acne, chronic inflammation or oxidative stress.
Of course, there are many other factors that affect facial skin health. But today’s article is about harmful eating habits.
1. Too much sugar damages your facial skin
Too much sugar can damage the skin of your face. It loses its naturally fresh colour and becomes thinner. It is also more prone to pimples and spots on the skin.
In the eye area in particular, the skin becomes slack and wrinkles appear prematurely. Sugar reduces the skin’s elasticity.
Therefore, you should avoid sugar as much as possible or avoid it completely. Not only your skin but also your general health will thank you for it.
You can get the sugar your body needs from healthy fruit.
2. Foods rich in gluten
If you have spots on your chin with dark pigmentation, or if your cheeks are red and slightly puffy, this could be an indication of an excess of gluten in your diet.
If you have dark pigment spots or spots in the genital area, you should consult a doctor, as it could be gluten intolerance.
You will notice an improvement after changing your diet. Gluten is replaced with fibre and plenty of water so your skin can restore its balance.
3. Lactose intolerance
Many suffer from lactose intolerance, which affects the skin, among other things. Because many people lose the ability to properly digest dairy products in the course of their lives.
When this happens, there is often swelling of the chin, small white spots, dark circles under the eyes, and swollen eyelids.
Lactose intolerance manifests itself particularly in the form of pimples on the chin. Don’t drink milk or dairy products for about 20 days to see if the reaction subsides.
The condition of the skin and digestion should improve.
4. Fatty foods
High-fat foods also cause skin problems and can also affect blood sugar levels.
The fat in the blood prevents the correct transport of nutrients and oxygen, which leads to dull, lifeless skin. In addition, fat leads to clogged skin pores.
5. Coffee in moderation
You shouldn’t drink more than 2 cups of coffee a day, because caffeine increases the production of adrenaline. This can cause symptoms of stress, which can affect your skin’s health.
Caffeine also affects sleep. This disrupts the nocturnal detoxification of the organism, which can also be seen on the skin.
All of these recommendations do not mean that you should cut out all of the foods mentioned. Consume these in moderation and whenever possible replace them with healthier alternatives such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, fresh juices, etc.
The skin reveals a lot about our health and wellbeing. So don’t forget to look after them appropriately, both inside and out!
