Eating Excess Sugar May Be Wreaking Havoc On Your Skin
Eating foods with a high glycemic index can lead to inflammation in your body, which affects your skin.
High-glycemic foods include white bread, soda, salad dressings, candy, and other baked goods and starches.
The excess sugar in these refined foods can wreak havoc on conditions like acne, eczema, and inflammation.
When tallied up, researchers say we end up eating and drinking a whopping 17 teaspoons of added sugar every day.
According to Business Insider, the average American consumes nearly 270 calories of added sugar per 24 hours.
Nutritionists say a moderate amount of sugar is unlikely to have effects on your skin, and natural sugars found in fruits are safe.
The American Heart Association recommends no more than 100-150 calories per day come from added sugars.
