Worst Foods that Will Make You Look Older
You have surely heard the old expression, “you are what you eat”, but did you know that not only are foods responsible for your general state of health but also your appearance? If your diet does not contain enough of the essential vitamins and minerals you need for a fully functioning body, you will inevitably pay the price with a haggard and tired appearance as well as dull skin. Even the best wrinkle creams on the market can’t fight back against a poor diet.
Wrinkles are caused by your skin tone losing the layers of collage underneath. This can be caused by many factors, including your diet, your habits such as smoking, your age and your genetics. Many women will gladly fight back against the signs of aging by using wrinkle creams, but without the proper diet, these ingredients in the wrinkle creams cannot do their job and so you are essentially wasting both your time and money.
The worst foods that cause wrinkles are those that provide a full belly but no nutrition. For example, white sugar can actually diminish the collagen production in the skin and so can contribute to the speed with which your face will age. Instead of eating white sugar, switch to fruit sugars or a good sugar substitute instead. This will help fulfill your sweet cravings while still giving your body the nutrients and natural sugars it needs instead. This is also helpful to keep your weight in check.
Alcoholic beverages can also contribute to the wrinkles on your face, since it acts as a diuretic and so will deplete your body of many of the natural fluids you need to stay looking young and feeling healthy. While there is no need to completely restrict alcohol from your diet, it does need to be kept to a bare minimum in order to ensure a fresh complexion.
Try replacing the junk foods with whole grains, lean meats, lots of greens and an adequate amount of dairy. Salmon, berries, spinach and grains are very helpful for your health and your appearance. It simply is not enough to expect wrinkle creams to rejuvenate your appearance – you have to take a whole body approach so that you will be healthy as well as younger looking. This will also help your skin heal itself more quickly and can also help prevent the appearance of more fine lines or wrinkles and so can contribute to your looks greatly.
