You Can Keep Your Baby Looking Skin
What you eat can make a huge impact on your skin. Luxury skincare and a great routine help but you also have to work from within too.
Sometimes, the last thing you need to do to get perfect skin is tweak your eating habits. If your eating habits are far from healthy, your skin will bear the consequences too. Here are the five foods you should avoid for healthier skin:
1. Too much salt
If you find yourself asking your dining companion to “pass the salt” too many times, then you’ll need to stop. Too much salt can cause water retention in your body, which causes swelling, puffy eyes and sometimes, dark circles. Read those food labels... an ideal limit is 1,500 mg. per day for most adults. More than 75 percent of the sodium Americans eat comes from some processed, prepackaged and restaurant foods- not from the salt shaker. 1/2 teaspoon of salt =1,150 mg. Remember the hidden sodium in salad dressing, ketchup, sodas and sweets. Just as how excess salt can affect your health, the same applies to your skin too!
