1. Alcohol


Alcohol affects the liver and its functionality. A healthy liver functions properly and it expels all toxins out of the body naturally. But when alcohol is consumed on a daily basis the alcohol starts affecting the liver adversely as the toxins start to build up and skin starts showing up issues like acne, wrinkles, sallowness and even rosacea.

Alcohol is dehydrating and it can affect the sleeping pattern to a greater extent. Inadequate sleep results in pigmentation, wrinkles, and it also reduces the elasticity of skin.

Sugar is the worst thing that can be put into the person’s body. But it cannot be cut directly from the diet completely. Certainly, the amount can be restricted which we consume on a daily basis. The sugar molecules have the tendency to stick to protein molecules thus forming advanced glycation end products (AGEs).
