They say you are what you eat, but how is what you’re putting in your mouth affecting how your skin looks and feels?
Dermatologists all agree there is a direct correlation between what you eat and how your skin behaves. That’s why we wanted to share the foods you need to avoid for flawless, beautiful skin!
Refined carbs refer to processed sugar and flour which are in many of the items you purchase at the store. Not only do they offer little nutritional value, but they can also wreak havoc on your body and your skin. When you eat processed flour and sugar, it activates glycation in your body - a major factor in premature aging.
To avoid this, you need to make sure you’re balancing out the bad in your diet with the good in your routine. You can still eat refined carbs (although we recommend limiting them) and be able to supplement your skin with proven wrinkle-fighting peptides. It will help reverse the damage caused by refined sugars on your skin so you can take years off your look and enjoy a healthy complexion.
Dairy products like milk and cheese are a part of almost everyone's diet, but did you know that they could be the cause of redness, irritation, and inflammation? Dairy is one of the most triggering foods for skin and while it may be difficult to live without, there are a few easy ways to minimize your chances of damage.
If you consume dairy, make sure your skincare routine is packed with anti-inflammatory ingredients like coltsfoot and argan oil. These ingredients will give you the freedom to eat what you want while still keeping your skin protected from inflammation and damage. You’ll be able to enjoy dairy guilt-free and keep your skin glowing!
While you may find soy in almost every packaged item in the grocery store, this controversial ingredient is causing big problems for your skin. One of the reasons women get wrinkles so young is because of estrogen. When you consume too much soy, it can actually increase your estrogen levels leading to premature aging.
If you want to avoid wrinkles, do your best to avoid products containing large amounts of soy. You don’t have to cut it out of your diet completely, but we highly suggest treating skin with wrinkle-fighting peptides to offset the damage to your skin. This will help reduce your risk of wrinkles and allow you to take better care of your skin!
