We all know fresh fruits and vegetables are the ticket to improving overall health, clear skin and bright, youthful complexions. What you might not know is that some foods can actually prematurely age your skin.
- Sugar: Sweets and refined carbs raise your blood glucose levels, which interferes with the normal repair of collagen and elastin.
- Saturated fats: Diets high in saturated fats increase inflammation, which ages your skin.
- Alcohol: Alcohol dehydrates your body, leaving skin tight and dry. Your liver also releases skin-aging free radicals as it metabolizes alcohol.
