Healthy Skin Starts Within....Let's Discuss How!!
Sugar causes inflammation and signs of premature aging.
Skin is composed of collagen and elastin, which make our skin supple and soft. Sugar causes cross-linking of collagen, resulting in stiffening and loss of elasticity of our skin. The more sugar we have, the more our skin starts to suffer!
Alcohol causes dehydration and inflammation and is known to dilate the pores of the skin, leading to blackheads and whiteheads.
Whey Protein influences the spike production of testosterone which can cause blemishes. It is also know to cause the over production of sebum, an oily substance your glands secrete, that can clog your skin and cause acne.
Fried Foods trigger inflammation due to an excess of omega 6 fatty acids and shortage of omega 3 fatty acids.
Too much salt can cause puffiness on the face. As the skin around our eyes is too delicate and thin, excess consumption of salt can lead to swelling around this area. Overconsumption can also lead to dehydration.
Cow's milk and dairy products contain casein and whey protein, which are thought to raise levels of a certain hormone (insulin-like growth factor-1, or IGF-1) which is linked with increased production of sebum, the oily substance produced by our skin, which is, in turn, linked with acne development.
