Jakarta, TOPNews Indonesia –
When some people crave healthy skin and glowing, owner oily skin have to deal with ‘glowing’ due to excess sebum. This condition is not infrequently coupled with the appearance of dull and acne-prone skin.
The causes vary, including the food you consume every day. Certain foods can indeed affect the health of the body, including the skin, especially for oily skin.
While healing acne with skincare, you can also try to treat oily skin by avoiding the following types of foods.
Under the umbrella name soft drink, soda gives a tingling sensation on the tongue.
However, this pleasant sensation turns out to be unpleasant for the skin. The sugar content in sodas can trigger inflammation and cause acne.
Milk is considered capable of supplementing daily nutrition, especially nutrients that cannot be met through the food consumed.
However, owners of oily skin need to reconsider when they want to include milk and dairy products in their daily diet.
As reported from Stylecraze, milk is high in hormones including the hormone testosterone which can trigger sebaceous glands or oil glands. The skin is getting oilier and prone to breakouts.
3. White bread
Your white bread or breakfast cereal every day could be the cause of skin breakouts.
Not only that, Tasneem Bhatia, a weight loss expert, said that other foods such as bagels, oatmeal, pasta can also worsen oily skin conditions and accelerate the appearance of signs of aging.
“Even claiming to be ‘healthy’ cereals with whole grains, which are low on the glycemic index, may contain glucose which triggers wrinkles,” Bhatia said, quoting from Eat This, Not That!.
4. Spicy food
The spicy taste often adds to the deliciousness of food. But you need to be careful because excessive consumption of spicy food can create toxins for the body.
The spicy taste can cause heat, making the skin more oily and acne-prone. We recommend that owners of oily and acne-prone skin consume more soup and vegetable salads.
5. Salty snacks
Excess salt intake can lead to fluid retention and inflammation. This condition can also lead to an increase in the oil content of the skin as it tries to fight salt dehydration.
It is better to control salt consumption by reducing consumption of salted nuts, chips, sauces, salad dressing, instant soup, or packaged biscuits.
You should think again about eating pizza, butter, foods with cream, cheese, cakes and pastries. The saturated fat content can increase inflammation in the skin so that it produces excess oil.
Consumption of saturated fat will be exacerbated when combined with red meat. Holistic nutritionist, Susan Tucker, said those who avoid meat then have cleaner skin.
We recommend that you replace the consumption of red meat with protein rich in omega 3 such as fatty fish.
7. Soybean food products
When there is a desire to replace cow’s milk with soy milk, you should reconsider this decision. Soybeans contain isoflavones which mimic estrogen, which can contribute to acne on the chin area.
Then check the food you consume again because there are certain foods that are mixed with soybeans in the form of oil, for example mayonnaise, chips and vegetarian burgers.
