The condition of our skin depends on many factors. Nutrition is one of the most important factors that can make our skin beautiful and radiant, or, on the contrary, cause rashes or premature ageing.
Alcoholic beverages are particularly damaging to the beauty of the facial skin. Drinking too much dehydrates the skin, drying it out, causing it to wrinkle prematurely and become sensitive. Alcohol also removes vitamin A, which is responsible for the formation of new cells. A deficiency of vitamin A can lead to acne, eczema or psoriasis.
High levels of sugar in the diet accelerate the ageing process, inhibit cell regeneration and the production of collagen and elastin. If you want to keep your skin firm and elastic, reduce your intake of sugar and foods high in sugar.
Excessive consumption of white bread can cause various skin rashes. The fast carbohydrates in white bread increase blood sugar levels, which leads to more sebum production and clogged pores.
Inadequate consumption of milk makes the skin oily, which leads to clogged pores and acne.
Too much salt causes puffy skin and dark circles under the eyes. Facial tissues swell and your skin looks tired.
Coffee and black tea
Be aware that 2-3 caffeinated cups a day increase the level of cortisol in the body. This is a stress hormone that negatively affects skin tissue, accelerates the ageing process, dehydrates and exhausts the skin.
Fats come in ‘good’ and ‘bad’ forms. The former (omega-3 fatty acids), found in fish, nuts and vegetable oil, regulate the skin’s moisture balance and prevent wrinkles and acne. The second (trans fats) do the opposite. For beautiful skin, include walnuts, soya beans, fish and avocados in your diet.
As mentioned above, nuts are very useful and necessary for our body. However, too much of them can cause skin rashes. Eat nuts to your health, but in moderation.
Spicy spices, especially if you are not used to them, can also “decorate” your face with acne.
