10 Foods That Could Be Ruining Your Skin
There's more to getting flawless, luminous skin than just inheriting great genes. In fact, some research has shown that what foods you eat can determine how blemish-free you are.
“There have been a lot of recent studies showing that certain foods will in fact affect the quality of skin,” explains Dr. Paul Jarrod Frank, New York City-based cosmetic dermatologist. “Avoiding them is the only way to ensure healthier skin. However, significantly reducing them will have some benefits.”
“Foods that cause inflammation, such as dairy, sugar, and carbohydrates are the most damaging to the skin,” he adds.
Frank suggests eating more proteins and vegetables rich in color, as well as fish for a natural glow. Also, if you believe you’re sensitive to certain ingredients, such as gluten, he recommends visiting a dermatologist for a checkup to better determine if you need to alter your eating habits.
