If you do not suffer from hormonal disorders, the main reason for bad skin is almost certainly a wrong diet. According to the famous American nutritionist Cynthia Sass, skin constantly renews itself using the substances that it receives from the diet – when there is an excess of harmful ingredients, skin develops wrinkles, acne and spots, loses shine and obtains an ugly color.
Among those particularly harmful ingredients experts identify simple carbohydrates, which are found in white bread, pasta, biscuits, and chocolates. Studies have shown that if you give up these products and switch to whole grains, in ten weeks your skin will become much cleaner and healthier. The number of blackheads and whiteheads is reduced by 28%, acne – by 71%.
According to cosmetologists, excessive consumption of milk also causes skin problems. In fact, cow’s milk contains many hormones rather intended for calves – they promote the growth of facial acne in humans. It is estimated that the risk of acne among milk lovers is 44% higher than in those who are indifferent to it.
Another provocateur of skin troubles is meat. As experts explain, omega-6 fatty acids contained in this product can cause skin inflammation. You can hinder this process if you replace meat with products rich in omega-3, which consolidate skin cells and give the skin a healthy glow. The best sources are fatty fish and vegetable fats.
