Foods That Make You Break Out
As much as we wish to believe that acne and other skin problems are an external issue, that’s simply not the case. More often than not, alot of issues happen within the body. If you aren’t changing simple things entering your body, unfortunately your skin will pay the price. Here’s some foods you may want to avoid if you have skin issues.
Sugar, specifically Soda
Yes, we all love it, and it loves to hate our skin. Sugar is bad all around, but don’t let that stop you from living your life. However, an excess amount of sugars that can be found in sodas especially, deplete collagen within your skin over time. That leads to faster sagging and aging. Sorry!
Of course, I’m sure you’ve heard of why it’s bad for your skin. When you eat too much oily foods, that leads to poor blood circulation which in turn lessens the likelihood of your skin recovering from acne scarring. But don’t be alarmed- a pizza or a corn dog here and there won’t kill your skin.
Salt (Chips, yikes)
Salt is wonderful…in small quantities. When your body has too much sodium, your system tricks itself into retaining water everywhere (maybe it thinks it’s dehydrated?) Regardless, too much sodium can lead to diabetes and other terrible diseases.
I know you didn’t want to see us say this, but it’s unfortunately true. Coffee can dehydrate your skin, causing dryness and wrinkles to intensify. This shouldn’t be too much of a problem if you have oily skin, but if you don’t…just be aware!
Much like the effects of coffee on skin, alcohol is DRYING. Not only that, alcohol can also cause you to have dark circles under your eyes. So if you’re not stalked up on concealer and water, maybe save that extra cocktail for another date.
