How many times have we done it? Cream, mask, hoping to wake up in the morning with a beautiful, glowing face but instead, you see reddened cheeks, dehydrated skin, enlarged pores …
No cream here will help, I know it myself because it took me a long time to make a conscious decision to determine what is causing imperfections on the face. And here the answer is simple – many people experience skin problems due to bad diet habits.
Dr. Nigma Talib specialist. skincare and naturopath the author of the book “How to reverse the signs of aging,” explains in simple terms why the theory of food and drink consumed directly affect the appearance of our face. This theory defines the four main causes that it calls “face of gluten”, “face of sugar”, “face of wine” and “face of milk”.
Eating cereal for breakfast, eating bread or pasta for dinner is the cause of some people swelling or bloating, and fine wrinkles around the eyes and mouth can be caused by drinking 1-2 glasses of wine.
If the body does not tolerate cheese or cream sauces, even small amounts of these products will cause dark circles under the eyes.
“Face Mapping” was used thousands of years ago in traditional Chinese medicine, and it is through this that Dr. Talib is able to tell its patients what foods are causing their problem.
Skin aging, hormonal and chemical changes are largely due to excessive consumption of foods and beverages that are not absorbed by our body. Let us remember that each of us is different. Some may eat a huge steak and then still dessert, and others will unfortunately get it both internally and externally.
Particularly harmful food groups include alcohol, sugar, dairy and gluten. These foods are the cause of many signs of skin aging, wrinkles, soreness, swelling, color changes or stains.
