The 3 Worst Fall Foods For Your Skin

The 3 Worst Fall Foods For Your Skin

As the weather cools down and the leaves start to change color, we all start to crave comfort foods. But as much as we love pumpkin spice lattes and apple cider donuts, these fall favorites can wreak havoc on our skin. Here are the five worst offenders and what you can eat instead to avoid breakouts.

Pumpkin Spice Lattes
We know, we know. It's hard to resist those PSL cravings when they hit, but sadly, pumpkin spice lattes are one of the worst fall foods for your skin. Why? Because they're loaded with sugar, which can cause inflammation and lead to breakouts. If you're dead set on indulging, go for a smaller size and skip the whip. And try to hold off on drinking them every day.

Apple Cider Donuts
Another fall favorite that's not so great for your skin? Apple cider donuts. Like pumpkin spice lattes, donuts are full of sugar, which can cause inflammation. They're also fried, which means they're full of unhealthy oils that can clog your pores and lead to breakouts. If you're craving something sweet, opt for a baked apple crisp or slice of (low sugar) pie instead.

Roasted Marshmallows
S'mores might be the perfect fall treat, but they're not so great for your skin. Marshmallows are full of sugar, which we already know is bad for your skin. And when they're roasted over a fire, they can also contain harmful carcinogens that can damage your skin cells and cause premature aging. If you're looking for a sweet treat this fall, go for a piece of fruit or a bowl of yogurt instead.

Fall is one of the best times of year for comfort food cravings. But as much as we love pumpkin spice lattes and apple cider donuts, these fall favorites can wreak havoc on our skin. To avoid breakouts, steer clear of sugary drinks and snacks like lattes, donuts, and roasted marshmallows. opt for healthier alternatives like baked apples or yogurt instead. Your skin will thank you!
