Foods That Could Be Adding Years To Your Body

August 10, 2022

In holistic science, timeless beauty is realized when outer perfection is balanced with inner satisfaction, wellness and character.

Just as it is essential to incorporate effective regimen in your skincare, it is equally important to build your personality and live a healthy lifestyle.

Your diet, specifically, can do wonders so you can slow the hands of time with more grace. And while there are foods that can hack aging for you, there are also foods that can radically age you.

The following are 6 foods that accelerate aging and can wreak havoc on your skin.


1. Spicy foods


Many of you may not take this well but spicy foods can actually compromise your young appearance. Turned out that hot peppers and spicy foods are of service to your metabolism but can dilate blood vessels and trigger a flare-up or rosacea if you have sensitive skin.

Plus, as spicy foods make your body feel warmer, you sweat to cool it back down. Sweat, when mixed with bacteria, can cause blotches and breakouts.

If you can’t take the heat and you have sensitivity, reduce consumption or eliminate spicy foods altogether.


2. Margarine


Margarine containing hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils are loaded with trans fats and should be avoided if you want to keep your youth. Trans fat raises your bad cholesterol and makes your blood platelets stickier, creating inflammation and increasing your risk for heart disease and stroke. Not surprisingly, these two cardiovascular conditions can give you a more aged look and are associated with cognitive aging.


3. Energy drinks


Consuming energy drinks is an easy way to get a brain and energy boost on the go.  However, they are also linked to many adverse health side effects like obesity, tooth decay, heart complications and sleep disturbances.

Further, they are also loaded with ingredients (sugar and caffeine) highly associated with premature wrinkles and other symptoms of aging.


4. Processed meats


Certain preservatives in processed meats, including sodium nitrates, can pull apart collagen and elastin. These two are key proteins that provide your skin with its shape, structure and elasticity. Thus, breakdown of these important proteins can lead to premature aging, allowing wrinkles and lines to form and making your skin look older.


5. Fried foods


This one is probably no surprise to you. Fried foods bathed in boiling oil at high temperatures release free radicals, causing cellular damage to your skin. Exposure to these free radicals can damage DNA molecules and weaken skin’s elasticity, eventually accelerating your aging process.


6. Caffeine


I know you love your morning coffee and this will not come easy for you.

Like any other diuretic, caffeine in coffee can make you excrete fluid and deplete your body of moisture. “Anything dehydrating can dehydrate your skin, making it look dull and aged,” says Ranella Hirsch, MD, former president of the American Society of Cosmetic Dermatology & Aesthetic Surgery.

To combat this caffeine consequence, Dr. Hirsch advised using a moisturizer with hyaluronic acid.



There’s no judgment if you want to look younger than your age. Besides, scientists found that a more youthful appearance is an indicator of a longer life plus other health benefits. Aging should be embraced at every age but there’s no shame in aging the healthiest possible way.

Keep the foods above at bay and slow down aging.
