If you eat fatty and unhealthy foods, your skin will suffer.”Samantha Heller
Always keep in mind when reading this article that one of the key functions of the skin is that of emunctory: that is to say, it evacuates toxins from the body, like the liver does. When your liver saturates because of the excesses, your skin also drinks so take into account the alarm signals it sends you (acne most often)
- Fatty and fried foods
Foods high in saturated fats and processed fatty acids, such as french fries, donuts, and fried foods, can cause inflammation in the body, including the skin, which can lead to acne breakouts, eczema and other skin problems.
- Dairy products
Dairy products often contain hormones that can disrupt the body's natural hormonal balance, which can lead to skin problems such as acne. Additionally, some dairy products, such as full-fat cheeses, may contain saturated fatty acids which can also cause skin inflammation.
- Sweet and refined foods
Foods high in sugar, such as sodas, pastries, and candies, can cause skin inflammation and increased oil production, which can lead to acne problems.
- Foods that are too salty
Excessive salt intake can cause water retention in the body, which can cause swelling and inflammation of the skin, especially around the eyes.
- spicy foods
Spicy foods can raise body temperature, which can cause inflammation and skin irritation, especially for people who have sensitive skin
- processed foods
Processed foods often contain additives, preservatives and artificial colors, which can cause allergic reactions and skin irritations.
- The alcohol
Alcohol can dry out the skin, making it more susceptible to fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, alcohol can dilate blood vessels in the skin, which can cause skin redness and inflammation.
