7. Charred meat harms the skin.
Black char on your meat may contain pro-inflammatory hydrocarbons, which are very inflammatory to the body. This can break down essentials for your skin like collagen, which leads to an aged appearance. Though, there is no need to give up on BBQ with your friends, just make sure that you remove the black char from your meat.
8. Fried potatoes use up important minerals from your body.
Potatoes almost instantly break down into sugars once they get inside of our bodies. Foods fried in oil at high temperatures release free radicals and this causes cellular damage to the skin. If you want to enjoy your potato in the most harmless way — bake it!
9. Coffee and caffeinated drinks leave your skin dry.
Caffeine is a diuretic, which makes you excrete fluid and creates a lack of moisture in your body. This makes your skin dry and fragile. But luckily this problem can be solved: just drink an extra glass of water for each cup of coffee you consume. Also, don’t forget to hydrate your skin.
