Having the right skincare routine is obviously an important component of having a youthful, glowing complexion. That’s why it’s important to do your homework when it comes to the products you apply to your face and other parts of your body. But what about what you consume? Is there such a thing as worst foods for your skin?
According to the skincare and beauty researchers at Kristals Cosmetics, the products you use are just one part of the healthy skin equation. The other is the foods and beverages that you decide to put into your body on a daily basis. So with that in mind, here are five foods that can trip up your skin-health regimen. Avoid these if you can.
The 5 Worst Foods for Your Skin
#1 Milk & Dairy Products
Unfortunately, a lot of modern dairy-producing cows receive hormones to amp up their milk production, and those hormones get passed on to you in the products made from their milk. These are hormones you just don’t need, and the result can be excess oil production, acne and a host of other skin problems.
Not only is it loaded with acne-creating sugar, but many sodas carry a healthy dose of caffeine, as well. Caffeine dries you out, which as you can guess, is not exactly a nourishing recipe for healthy skin, not to mention a youthful, wrinkle-free complexion.
Remember that trouble-making sugar we were talking about earlier? You can bet that candy has it in droves. Not only is it an acne producer, but sugar openly attacks your skin’s elastin and collagen that keep you looking soft and young. Candy is one food to definitely cut back on.
While crab legs and lobster are certainly delicious, they are one of the foods that is highest in iodine. And this chemical is known to be a surefire pore-clogger and acne-producer. Choose heart-healthy salmon or tuna instead.
#5 Fast Food
Fast food more often than not comes out of a fryer, and fryers essentially create “anti” antioxidants. These oxidized fats effect your circulation and metabolism, and less healthy skin is the ultimate outcome.
