Eating too much sweet or salty food can negatively affect your skin. Some of the most common skin changes include loss of natural shine, loose skin, dark circles around the eyes, wrinkles, loss of contours, and increased skin pores. Fast food can also cause acne, which is usually a consequence of oxidative stress and systemic inflammation.


Here's a list of foods that you should avoid if you want to preserve your youthful look as long as possible:


1. Caffeine

Coffee is the most widespread stimulant drink that can harm the appearance of your skin and teeth. Thus, it's recommendable to always drink a glass of water with your coffee, to help neutralize the pH value of your body.


2. Salt

If you're careful with the amount of salt you use while cooking, it doesn't necessarily mean that your salt intake is low. Pay attention to the foods that are saltier than you can taste. The so-called salt stores include salt bagels, pizza, noodles, lunch meats, sandwiches, cheese and cream cheese. Foods that abound in salt cause fluid retention in the body and inflammation.

3. Trans Fats.

Apart from increasing the risk of heart disease, trans fats can also damage your skin. They cause inflammation that can damage the collagen and make you more sensitive to ultraviolet rays, which are one of the main reasons for skin aging. Make sure to avoid foods like margarine and fast foods.


4. Refined Carbohydrates.

Foods rich in simple carbohydrates can damage collagen and skin fibers. White bread, refined cereals and white flour pasta have a high glycemic index (Gl). Such foods are associated with the occurrence of acne, wrinkles and dark circles around the eyes.


5. Processed Meats.

There are many reasons why you should exclude processed meats from your diet. Accelerated aging is one of them. Meats like salami, sausages, and bacon contain sulfates and other preservatives, which can cause skin inflammation and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.


6. Full-Fat Dairy.

Dairy fats accelerate the aging process of the brain and skin. In order to prevent this, you should include healthy fats in your diet, such as avocado, extra virgin olive oil and the like.

7. Sugar.

Large amounts of sugar(sweet foods) can trigger an unwanted chemical process in the body. When you eat more sugar than your cells can process, the surplus combines with the proteins, causing a reaction known as glycosylation. Glycosylation products can damage the collagen, a protein that gives the human skin a youthful look.


In addition, large quantities of sweets adversely affect the teeth, because the sugar attaches to them and attracts bacteria that cause tooth decay. When you eat something sweet, take a sip of water and swish it in your mouth, to remove the sugar remains.

8. Alcohol

You should limit your intake of alcohol because it can hurt your overall health. Excessive consumption is very harmful to the liver, and has a negative effect on the skin. Namely, alcohol dehydrates the skin and disrupts sleep, which is associated with accelerated aging, appearance of wrinkles, acne, and outburst of rosacea.
