Foods-You-Should-Avoid-to-Keep-Your-Skin-clear-This-Summer

Summer is a great time to head outside for some adventures. However, with the sun shining constantly, it can wreak havoc on your skin. In addition to wearing sunscreen any time you go outside, you should also maintain a healthy diet that will aid in your skin’s health. A good diet means avoiding the following foods as much as possible.

Ice Cream 

Ice cream may be refreshing on a hot summer day, but all that sugar is not good for your skin. Sugary desserts in general should be avoided. These desserts can get in the way of collagen and elastin properly developing. 

Bagels and White Bread

Refined carbohydrates are not beneficial for skin tissue. Bagels and other foods rich in carbs will cause a spike in your blood sugar levels, leading to glycation. The process of glycation weakens your skin’s collagen. In lieu of a bagel every morning, you should switch to a bowl of low-sugar oatmeal. 

Milk

Regular milk and acne go together hand in hand. It can clog pores and exacerbate already-existing acne problems. Instead of pouring regular dairy milk over your cereal, you can switch to almond or coconut milk. It is just as tasty but comes with a much lower glycemic index.

Highly Processed Foods

Frozen meals and food in cans are usually filled with excess sodium. Salt causes your body to retain more water than it needs. This results in a puffy appearance in the face. It can also speed up the process of developing puffy bags under the eyes. 

Fortunately, there are plenty of delicious foods you can still eat. Wild salmon is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids. Oranges, strawberries and spinach are excellent sources of Vitamin C, which helps repair skin tissue. In addition to a healthy diet, you should also maintain a good skin care regimen, which Timeless Skin Care can help you with. Call us at 800-213-3705 to learn more about our line of products.
