7 Foods That Are Bad For Your Skin


Many people take great pride in having smooth, soft skin that almost seems to radiate outwards, inviting others to touch it. Not only that, but some people are lucky enough to have skin that’s blemish-free.

Unfortunately, not everyone is blessed with this kind of skin. So, what can you do to improve the look and feel of your skin? You can start by avoiding some of the foods found on this list.

 

1. Cola

Preliminary (and ongoing) research shows that cola can have a devastating impact on our skin, particularly in the development of acne. The problem is that cola is simply loaded with weak acids and heavily processed sugar, both of which can have an impact on the skin.

It’s no surprise, then, that most health experts recommend people skip the sugar-heavy soda and reach for a water, which contains no calories, no sugar, and no fat. Water can also keep our bodies hydrated, improving the look and feel of skin.
