The beauty of skin and hair primarily depends on your he alth, and not on expensive cosmetics. The easiest way to have glossy locks and a radiant complexion is to eat a balanced diet full of vitamins. But some familiar products nullify your efforts. What food won't benefit?

1. Milk, cheese and yogurt
2. Sweets and bread
Don't blame chocolate for acne - it's not the sweetness that's really to blame, but our hormones. Sugar and high glycemic foods cause hormonal imbalances, which can lead to increased sebum production and eventually acne. If you have problematic skin, then cut out simple carbohydrates (white bread, pasta, potatoes, rice) and, of course, all types of sweets from your diet.
3. French fries
If foods are bad for your skin, they are also bad for your hair. It's easy to understand: anything that irritates the skin on the face will also disturb the scalp, damaging the hair follicles. As a result, the hair will begin to weaken, fall out or grow slowly. Any foods filled with sugar, oil and fat (fries, fried chicken, cakes and ice cream) affect how your hair looks and grows. Eat more fruits and vegetables that are rich in antioxidants and strengthen hair roots.
4. Chips and pickles
If you constantly struggle with swelling under the eyes, then check how often you eat chips or pickles? Daily excess sodium gives the face an unhe althy puffy look. Know that Hollywood stars completely cut s alt from their diet at least 72 hours before an important ceremony to de-puff their faces.
One glass of wine on the weekend won't hurt your he alth, but daily drinking will quickly ruin your beauty. First of all, alcohol dehydrates the cells, so the skin becomes puffy and dry to the touch. Alcoholic drinks act as a vasodilator and cause persistent reddening of the skin, which eventually turns into inflammation: the cells do not receive nutrients and quickly age.
