7 drinks that are bad for the skin
WITHsuffering from dryness, uneven complexion and rashes? Pay attention to what is in your mug. Espresso, milk and 5 other drinks that are bad for the skin.
Dedicated to all lovers of latte and cappuccino! First, it’s high in calories (a cup of latte is considered a side meal). And secondly, it is harmful to the skin. In fairness, coffee has many positive properties: it stimulates mental activity, improves mood, and increases physical activity. But you need to know when to stop. Doctors recommend one small cup a day. And if you follow your skin – every other day. Caffeine increases levels of cortisol, a stress hormone that can negatively affect skin health.
Black tea differs from green tea in the way it is processed – during its production, the tea leaves are oxidized. Thanks to this, the drink acquires a tart taste and aroma. Tea has many positive properties – it stimulates metabolism and relieves fatigue. Just like coffee, it must be drunk in dosage. Black tea contains caffeine – back to point one.
Red wine has a strong effect on blood vessels – it is contraindicated for people with rosacea and skin prone to redness. White is also not the best friend of the perfect face. The drink contains a lot of sugar, the excessive consumption of which leads to cell death and inflammation.
Cfreshly squeezed fruit juices
Freshly squeezed juices are double bottom drinks. On the one hand, they contain many vitamins, antioxidants, micro- and macroelements necessary for the body. On the other hand, they can cause exacerbation of diseases of the gastrointestinal tract. Another cons – high sugar content! You can talk about its harm ad infinitum.
Dermatologist Nigma Talib says that to improve skin condition, you need to remove wine, sugar, gluten and milk from the diet. By the way, trainers also recommend giving up the latter – it provokes edema. Milk sold in hypermarkets often contains analgesics, antibiotics, growth activators and hormones that negatively affect the condition of the skin and the body. Try to gradually keep the amount of milk in your diet to a minimum. Give it up gradually, replacing it with a vegetable alternative – rice, coconut, almond.
Alcohol itself is very high in calories. Add to them no less high-calorie juices and you get a “bomb” that threatens to burst on your face with a scattering of blackheads and inflammatory elements.
Energy drinks contain caffeine (see point one). And also guarana and arginine, which have a powerful stimulating effect. After a couple of sips, you feel energized. Only your skin will not be very happy with this stimulation. The body will direct all its forces to replenish energy reserves and it will not be up to it to take care of the skin.
