If you're worried about premature aging, or you want to get your skin in better shape so that you look and feel younger, there are 2 important things to avoid.
Can you guess what they are?
One is pretty obvious; the other not always the case.
A diet high in sugar accelerates the process of glycation, which ages skin. You see, glycation is when excess glucose attaches to your skin's proteins (the collagen and elastin that makes you look younger) and turns them dry and brittle.
So do your best to minimize your sugar intake. Not only will it make your skin look younger but you'll ultimately lose weight!
Smoking can speed up the aging process of your skin.
Smoking also causes yellowing of the teeth, reduces vitamin absorption, restricts blood flow, and causes discoloration of the skin.
Those are 2 main things you'll want to avoid but there are a few other culprits to look out for.
* Processed Foods
Eating too many processed foods can lead to serious damage in your skin's collagen which will result in wrinkles and dry, aged skin.
Worse, they are tied to heart disease and diabetes!
* Deep Fried Foods
Any food that is deep fried in oil will add inflammation to your skin, especially trans fats.
It an also raise your LDL cholesterol and lower good cholesterol.
* Fatty Meats
Avoid meats that are high in saturated fats. They'll reduce collagen production which will leave your skin dry and wrinkled. Instead, focus on buying lean meats whenever possible.
Heavy drinks speeds up the aging process. It's also not good for your heart, kidneys or liver. Drink in moderation. A glass of wine a day can actually be good for your heart but watch your intake levels!
