Using harsh soaps

10/10Inflammatory foods

Inflammatory foods

High levels of inflammation is no good for many reasons, including the health of our skin. It can increase the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. That is why it is not only important to manage these levels, but also to reduce your intake of inflammatory foods. Food like margarine, red meats, white bread, sweet foods, and processed foods could cause wrinkles to form at a rapid pace. This is because foods with a high glycemic index bind to collagen and elastin, which cause them to become weak.
