Is Red Wine Ruining Your Complexion? What Bad Diets Do To Skin

Is your favourite glass of Merlot to blame for your latest breakout? A new book by Nigma Talib reveals the shocking truth about how what you eat translates into a bad complexion. "I want to run up to strangers and tell them to cut milk out of their diet or hold back on the pasta as it is so clear from their complexion that their diet is doing them harm. For some people, just one wheat-heavy day - cereal for breakfast, bread for lunch and pasta for dinner - is enough to cause bloating and puffiness." says Nigma, skincare specialist. Here are the four faces of a bad diet, and how to fix them! #1 Wine Face wine face bad skin "Alcohol dehydrates the skin, which worsens the look of fine lines and wrinkles. The deeply ageing nasolabial lines, which run from nose to mouth, can lift and lighten as soon as you stop drinking and become rehydrated." explains Nigma. "Alcohol is known to inhibit the action of the enzyme that the body uses to fight the skin-destroying inflammatory process, so a couple of glasses of wine could be enough to allow the inflammatory process to take over, resulting in highly coloured cheeks and a red nose." Taking a short break from red wine nights (2 to 3 weeks) can help rebalance your skin tone. After your break, reintroduce wine slowly and try to abstain from drinking it more than once a week. #2 Sugar Face sugar face pimple wrinkles "The problem is that sugar triggers a process called glycation, which is when excess glucose molecules attach themselves to collagen, making the normally springy, elastic collagen fibres rigid and inflexible. This causes the skin to sag and thin, and lines and wrinkles to appear prematurely - particularly under the eyes, where the skin is most delicate and loss of elasticity more apparent." says Nigma. The best way to repair your face is to cut out sugar completely. This will also work wonders for your energy level, liver function and even your mood. Your face will also clear up instantly and look more youthful. [bctt tweet="Experiencing paleness, wrinkles, pimples?

To clear skin and stop the allergic reactions that your body is silently undergoing, it is best to cut down on dairy. Hormones from milk products can cause spots on your face, but decreasing your overall intake will eliminate those spots and clear skin. #4 Gluten Face gluten face allergy reaction "A reaction to gluten takes its toll on the immune system, in turn disrupting the delicate balance of reproductive hormones, resulting in spots or dark pigmentation on the chin, the area associated with the reproductive organs. No matter how many supplements you take or how many peels you have, if you have the symptoms of gluten face, then nothing will make your skin look as good as it can except removing gluten from your diet." reveals Nigma. Gluten is present in many products, so look carefully at labels. Drinking lots of water can help to rebalance the skin's appearance and detox your system from gluten.
