Today we’re gonna talk about the top 9 drinks you want to AVOID to keep your skin looking younger, and your body healthy.
Of course none of these are the fountain of youth, we all age, but there are some things
we should avoid if we wanna keep our baby faces. So, where do the drinks we mentioned at the beginning of the article fall on our list?
Well, keep reading to find out.
Drinks you should AVOID
Ok, we’re gonna start with the worst one.
COLA. Yes, it’s true soda of any kind is really bad for you.
Two words, added sugar.
One of the worst things you can consume is a simple form of sugar called fructose. Your body doesn’t really process this liquid sugar and so you don’t feel full or satisfied when you drink it. That means that you’re dumping a ton of empty calories into your body and upping your risk of gaining unwanted weight, insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes.
When it comes to your skin, sugar causes inflammation and can worsen already existing skin conditions like acne, eczema, rosacea and psoriasis.
When the weekend hits, sometimes all you want is to let loose and have a fancy cocktail. But as we age, our bodies can’t deal with booze as easily as when we were younger. Liquor has some pretty bad side effects if you’re a heavy drinker, but even if you’re just partaking occasionally the junk food cravings and terrible sleeping patterns will catch up with you. Not to mention what it does to your skin! Alcohol is a diuretic, which means it dehydrates you.
More importantly it sucks the moisture out of your skin and makes fine lines and wrinkles stand out. The more you keep drinking the faster your skin will look older and wrinkled. Next time skip the cocktail hour and have a small glass of red wine instead. In moderation red wine is a better choice as it contains resveratrol, an antioxidant that has been shown to be extremely beneficial when fighting the aging process.
