Try This Instead of That: Easy Swaps for More Beautiful Skin
1. Swap Blended Coffee Drinks with Plain Iced Coffee
Dairy in blended coffee drinks can worsen acne and sugar break down collagen.
Having four or more cups of coffee a day was associated with a 20% lower risk of melanoma in a 2015 Yale study.
2. Swap Grilled Steak with Salmon
Red meat grilled at high temperatures can play a damaging role in aging. Salmon, however, is rich in anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids and a serving of oily fish every five days may protect against precancerous changes, according to a 2009 study.
3. Swap Citrus Fruits with Watermelon
Citrus fruits contain prsoralens, which make your skin more sensitive to UV rays and have been linked to an increased risk of melanoma. Watermelons are full of Vitamin C (just like citrus fruits) which helps rejuvenate skin, but they do not contain any psoralens.
