Eleven (11) Foods You Should Avoid if You Want to Look Young

June 07, 2017

You may have been taking medications and supplements for various purposes, like recovering from an illness as well as for muscle growth, beautiful skin and hair, weight loss and so on. But do you know that the food you take has medicinal properties that can make you healthy or unhealthy? Today Earth’s Wisdom wants to share with you the foods that speed up your aging process and so, you should avoid

1. Sugar

If you have a sweet tooth, I am sorry, you have to extract it. I mean you have to stop eating sugary foods if you don’t want to look aged before time. Excess sugar kickstarts a process named glycation because when there is excess sugar in your body than your cells can process, the excess sugar molecules attach themselves to proteins named collagen, which keeps your skin firm and youthful. This makes your skin look inflexible and stiff. Your skin loses it elasticity and thereby wrinkles are formed which make you look older than you actually are.

Also sugar sticks to your teeth, promoting bacterial growth, decay and discoloration of teeth.

2. Trans Fats

Just like sugar, trans fats too make your skin inflexible and stiff. Trans fats clog and harden arteries and capillaries which make the skin look old. Trans fats trigger inflammation which is also bad for collagen.They also make your skin prone to UV damage, which is a leading cause of aging.

3. Salt

Salt dehydrates your body. When your body is dehydrated, you are fatigued and look tired and worn out. Plus, excess salt is also responsible for high blood pressure and kidney disease, and it interferes with bone metabolism.

4. Coffee

Coffee and products containing caffeine too dehydrate your body because of which you look tired and worn out.

5. Artificial Sweeteners

Artificial sweeteners like aspartame are responsible for joint pain and headache. They also can make you crave for sweets.

6. Alcohol

Consuming excessive alcohol dehydrates your body and thereby causes loss of collagen, wrinkles, puffiness and redness. Alcohol also hampers your liver function due to which your liver becomes incapable of throwing toxins out of your body. This gives rise to skin issues like wrinkles and acne.

7. Energy Drinks

Energy drinks destroy the enamel of your teeth eight times more than soda does. The loss of enamel makes your teeth appear yellow and unhealthy.

8. Carbohydrates

Consuming excessive carbohydrates, especially with high glycemic index, can ruin collagen in your skin. Pretzels, bagels, cereals, pasta and oatmeal have been found to speed up skin’s aging process and causing acne and rosacea. Even the self-declared “healthy” cereals with whole grains that have lower glycemic index can be rich in wrinkle-promoting glucose.

9. Fried Foods

Fried food is responsible for collagen breakdown in your skin, thus making your skin look wrinkled and worn out. Typically restaurants use corn oil which is one of the unhealthiest oils. It releases a lot of free radicals in the body which bring about oxidative stress and hamper your overall health and also induce wrinkles along with heart disease.

10. Soda

Soda dehydrates your body. This makes you look tired and fatigued. As a rule of thumb, you should drink half of your body weight plain water in ounces, thus if you weigh 130 lbs, you should drink 65 ounces of water every day, which is just more than eight cups.

11. Potato Chips

Ingredients in potato chips will stimulate interleukin 6 in your body. Interleukin 6 is a marker of inflammation and is associated to aging. Not only potato chips but anything fried and deep fried can hamper cell respiration and immune functions.


So, if you want to look young and beautiful always, leave the above foods at once and turn to healthy food choices. They will not only make you beautiful, but healthy too.
