List Of Foods That Are Definitely Ageing You


In this social media age, where looks alone can catapult you to Instagram celebrity status, anti-ageing products are as illustrious as ever.

This is because two of the first signs of ageing are fine lines and wrinkles appearing on your skin, and your teeth going yellow – a process that happens naturally.

While there are some foods you can eat that will reverse the effects of ageing, there are some that will help to speed up the process.

1. Coffee

Coffee is a big problem when it comes to tooth discolouration.

This is because coffee contains an ingredient called tannins which are a type of polyphenol that break down in water.

This ingredients cause colour compounds to stick to your teeth, hence the yellow hue.

However, you can combat this by eating food while you drink your coffee, rather than sipping on it throughout the day. This is because eating produces more saliva which neutralises the acid from coffee and causes less stains.

2. Bacon

Prosciutto, bacon and salami are all meats preserved using salts which can make you dehydrated.

This is not good for your skin as it lacks the collagen it needs to be able to bounce back. To prevent this make sure you’re drinking enough water.

3. Lemonade

As lemons are full of acid, if the juice sits on your teeth for a long period of time it can wear through your enamel.

Lemons are also high in sugar which is both bad for your teeth and skin. Instead, try lemon or other fruit-infused water.

4. Yoghurt

When you buy no-fat yoghurt, you are really buying yoghurt stocked with extra sugar to make up for the lack of flavour.

Too much sugar can make your skin look older because it can damage the collagen fibres which are then unable to repair themselves, a 2010 study found.

5. White wine

Alcohol is one of the main culprits when it comes to staining your teeth. This is because alcohol dries out your mouth, decreasing saliva and which leads to cavities and staining.

You may want to stick with a glass of red as white wine is more acidic than red and can cause more harm.
