Top 5 Foods to Avoid That Age Your Skin

14th June 2013

As a child you probably used to add months and days on to your age, you weren't 6 you were 6 and a half, you wanted to be 18 when you were 14, and when you were finally 18 you often to wanted to be 21. Then you hit 21, and you suddenly start fearing getting old. It happens to all of us and although many of us worry about this before there are any visible signs, it is understandable that we all care about the future. There are of course many things you can do to your skin externally, but what about things you can do internally?

1. Trans Fats:

They make your skin look stiff and rigid as they clog the arteries and blood vessels.

2. Coffee:

Your daily cup (or cups!) will dehydrate you, and make you look worn out.

3. Carbohydrates:

Excessive carbohydrate intake damages the collagen and fibres in your skin.

4. Salt:

Dehydrates the body, leaving your skin looking puffy and bloated.

5. Sugar:

A diet high in sugar is bad for the ageing process of your skin. The sugar attaches itself to collagen and damages it resulting in a loss of elasticity in the skin and the appearance of wrinkles.

Adopting a diet that incorporates plenty of greens, nuts, fish, herbs, spices and tomatoes can help you to fight the signs of ageing.
