Why the Foods You Love Make you Look Older

Foods which speed up the process of aging

The food we consume has an effect on our skin, whether for better or for worse. That’s the reason why after a serial of holiday parties, and alcohol-filled days our skin feels a bit off. Even though you won’t become old after a few indulgences, a constant inappropriate diet can speed up the aging process of your skin and teeth. Below you can read which 8 foods you should eat in moderate quantities so as to look as young as you feel.

1. Sweets

Sugar surplus may raise a beginning of a process known as glycation. Along with the consumption of more sugar, the excess sugar molecules get together with proteins, thus creating “advanced glycation end products” suitably referred to as “AGES”. Finally, AGES may harm your skin’s collagen, the protein that maintains skin dense and young-looking.

What’s more, consuming too much sweet is also harmful for your smile, because sugar remains to your teeth, stimulating bacteria, degrade, and color changing.

2. White wine

The acid contained in white wine harms your enamel and makes your teeth more at risk of enduring discolor. So if you have a habit of ending your day with a glass of white wine, your teeth may be more defenseless to those coffee blemishes the next morning.

You should not brush your teeth promptly after drinking, and this is the same for any acidic drink. If you brush your teeth immediately after consuming acidic drink, than you can speed up the erosion of your enamel, so you should wait your teeth to rematerialize.


3. Charred meat

The black char on the meat may contain pro-inflammatory hydrocarbons, which could be a problem since inflammation decomposes the collagen in your skin. There is no necessity for you to exclude charred meat, but at least make sure clean the grill after using it, so you don’t spoil your next meal.

4. Piquant food

Piquant food irritates prone skin, and also makes harm during menopause, because the blood vessels in the skin are more reactive then. Due to the fact that spicy food enlarges your blood vessels, menopausal women may have spotty and less youthful skin during this period. You should avoid frequent consumption of piquant food because it could lead to spider veins, puffiness, or permanent redness.

5. Energy drinks

Energy drinks were also found to be more acidic and have a negative effect on the teeth’s enamel compared to sports drinks. As we’ve read before acidity makes teeth more susceptible to discoloration. In case you have a real need of your energy drink, then use a straw.

6. Lemonade

All citrus destroys your enamel, especially lemons. In comparison to orange and grapefruit juice, lemon juice creates the most dental harm. It is the same as with energy drinks, sip from a straw if you have to.

7. Caffeinated drinks or food

Caffeine can dehydrate your skin, making it look dull and aged, because it is like any other diuretic (it can make you excrete fluid, and deplete your body of moisture).

It’s very easy to prevent the consequences of consuming caffeine. The easiest way to look younger instantly is using moisturizer with hyaluronic acid.

8. Black tea

Because of the high content of tannin, tea creates stains on your teeth, too. However good news here is that there is a founding that the casein in milk diminishes those tea-induced tooth stains.
