4 Drinks you should avoid for clearer skin



 


Its common knowledge that what you eat and what you drink can for the sure impact the health of your skin. Today I want to explore how some common everyday drinks affect the skin and alternatives you can have instead.


FIZZY DRINKS




Foods can hurt your skin. Let's talk about Fizzy drinks. These drinks are loaded with sugar, a can coke has around 39g of sugar. That's more than the daily recommended amount. These fizzy drinks also slow regeneration, because these drinks affect your chromosomes. This is a precursor to premature aging, which eventually affects your skin. So just understand that fizzy drinks cause fine lines and wrinkles.



ALCOHOL

The no-brainer on this list is alcohol. I don't have a high opinion of alcohol when on the topic of skincare. There are way too many reasons to list as to why it's not good for your skin. Here are the basics. Alcohol is an inflammatory So if you suffer from acne this isn't good news. Alcohol is also a vasodilator meaning it causes your blood vessels to expand. If you suffer from rosacea this is a huge trigger. Alcohol is also full of sugar and takes a toll on your complexion.


MILK

A warm glass of milk before bed will no doubt make you sleep. The problem here is it can cause acne. Unlike alcohol, most of us enjoy milk daily. If you have to have dairy the word is moderation. Also, there are alternatives, I'm not a milk drinker, but I love almond milk in my smoothies





CAFFEINATED DRINK

Yes, caffeinated drinks made the list.  These drinks often contain acrylamide.  This chemical causes upset in the skin by affecting other areas of the body.  This diuretic affects your sleep pattern and it can take up to 10 hours to leave your system.  One other con to these drinks is that they are usually served with lots of sugar and milk.
