Acne and premature aging is an ongoing struggle for so many people. We are told the acne will go away after we are teenagers, but that is often not the case, and anyone suffering from adult acne knows this all too well. When it comes to aging, we’re told it will happen later in life, but what if it’s happening right now? What can we do to slow down the signs of aging? And what can we do when our acne overstays its welcome?
One thing to do is to evaluate what we are eating because not all skin treatments are topical, and often you can create healing from the inside out. You may be unaware that you are filling your body with certain foods that are triggers for skin issues. Not all of them are unhealthy, so the key is to figure out what food is the trigger food for your skin, and then eliminate it. Here are 20 foods that are bad for your skin.
Soda is one of those drinks people can’t seem to give up. It can be an addiction, just like having an addiction to coffee. If you want to wean yourself off of it, start drinking one less soda per day. Each week, reduce it by one more and replace those drinks with carbonated water.
Soda has so much refined sugar it’s actually terrifying. Beyond the sugar content, what a lot of people forget about is the caffeine. If you are struggling with skin problems, caffeine dehydrates the skin and therefore emphasizes fine lines and wrinkles. Eliminating soda from your diet is definitely an investment in the youthfulness of your skin.
