We humans have been trying to conquer and tame many seemingly untamable forces out there, and surprisingly, we have managed to do so in most cases.

However, there is one thing that we simply couldn’t beat – aging. Time is the one force that simply cannot be stopped, no matter how much money you have.

What you can do, though, is slow down the process itself, at least a little bit.

In order to do so, you need to stop consuming (or at least minimize) the following everyday foods that are making you age quickly.

Energy Drinks

These soda and coffee mutants are simply bad for your body, in any possible and imaginable way. Energy drinks contain extremely high amounts of sugar and caffeine, both of which are making you age like hell.

Sugar and caffeine, a bad combo indeed.

Alcohol

We all know how many serious side-effects there are of long-term heavy drinking. Still, we can’t seem to drop the booze from our everyday lives, and that also includes you, social drinkers. The fact that you are not “real drunks” because you are not drinking on a daily basis, doesn’t mean you are off the hook.

Too much alcohol will destroy your body and your skin in many ways. Think:

  • premature wrinkles
  • dehydration
  • puffiness
  • loss of collagen and elasticity

Candy

Almost all types of candy are simply packed with high-glycemic carbs, which are known to sky-rocket you blood sugar levels so quickly, that you will look like Renee Zellweger by the time you’ve finished that Snickers bar.

The thing is that your body is damaging collagen – your skin’s favorite thing – during the process of breaking down all the sugar you’ve consumed.

If you want your skin tight and wrinkle-less, you better forget about:

  • Sugars (from high to low: Maltose, Glucose, Sucrose)
  • Puffed cereals (white rice, wheat, corn, rice cakes)
  • Potatoes ( regular russet, instant, mashed)
  • Candy
  • Bread

Fast Food

What more can we say about fast food that you don’t already know… These bad boys are packed with trans fats that damage your arteries and veins by clogging and stiffening them. As your skin is also full of small scale blood vessels, eating fast food will also make you age rapidly.

Processed Meats

Where is fast food, there is salty, processed meats. What these food villains all have in common is their high levels of salt, sulfites, and other preservatives which impact the condition of your skin, especially the wrinkles on your face.

Salty Snacks

As you probably already figured out – any food that contains a lot of salt is a huge no-no, basically. Salty snacks are among the worst foods for your looks, as these unhealthy rascals simply love to wreck your skin.

And not only that – too much salt will, aside from accelerating your cell aging process, also damage your heart as well.

Coffee

All you caffeine addicts out there, we have some bad news for you. Unless you want to look like Clint Eastwood in a couple of years, you better switch to decaf. The thing is that caffeine acts as a diuretic when consumed in larger doses, which causes dehydration. And we know what that means…
