Eating Unhealthy Foods

The state of your skin reflects what is inside your body. Studies prove that when we eat nutritious foods, our skin will appear clearer than when we eat unhealthy ones. Nutritious foods including fruits, veggies, nuts, fish and seeds can improve one’s complexion while also leaving skin well moisturized and nourished. To maintain healthy skin, doctors suggest limiting eating foods that dehydrate skin such as alcohol and high-sodium foods (especially canned and frozen meals), foods that contain trans-fats, fried foods and high-glycemic foods such as pasta, white bread and sugary items. “High-glycemic foods cause your blood sugar to rise, triggering a surge of insulin. The insulin stimulates oil-producing hormones called androgens, leaving you with pimples,” Leslie Baumann, a Miami dermatologist and author of The Skin Type Solution, said. When striving to achieve radiant skin, eating healthy foods can make all the difference.
