Want gorgeous skin from the inside out. Food affects our skin in a lot of ways.  In fact, more and more data is showing us that specific food groups can cause skin aging, pigmentation, sensitive skin, rashes and even acne! Every person goes through their skin imperfections and skin problems as we need to stay away from certain food products.


Stay away from Sugar

Just a spoonful of sugar may make the medicine go down, but it sure doesn’t help your skin. Those innocent looking crystals can make the difference between a youthful glow and dull and aged skin. Sugar is known to cause something known as glycation of important proteins in the skin. Doctors and famous Hollywood and Bollywood celebrities will tell you that cutting out sugar can truly revolutionize your appearance in a short period of time. Caution, for those of you with a sweet tooth, substituting for sugar free is not the answer. Sugar-free options have a host of issues themselves, and cause just as much as an insulin reaction as sugar does. For truly gorgeous youthful skin, keeping it clean and natural and without sugar is the way to go.

Avoid Artificial Ingredients

The fact is that there is not enough data to truly prove that artificial ingredients like artificial colors; sweeteners, artificial flavors, nitrates and et cetera unequivocally cause harm. But, we do know that they can cause oxidative damage to your cells, have been shown to be implicated in a host of internal diseases and that they can aggravate many skin conditions. After seeing thousands of patients, I can honestly say that “cutting out the crap” and keeping it as natural as possible can only be good for you. Eating excessively processed foods with untested additives can only damage your system in ways that we are only just beginning to understand. So, while a burrito here and there won’t kill you, definitely try to keep your diet simple and true to nature at least 80% of the time will make a big difference in your body and your skin. After all you are what you eat! And you don’t want to be ketchup!

Say No to White Foods

So while a white dress code only party might be de rigeur, maida, corn flour, cornstarch and white rice are not happening for your skin. White flour and cornstarch, present in everything from pasta to namkeen, are a huge cause of insulin dysregulation. These foods have no nutritional value – they just taste good. And in the process, cause your insulin to spike, while causes your stress hormones to skyrocket. You all remember what your skin used to look like as a teenager before a test? Those pimples, that dullness and that skin sensitivity? Well that happens because your stress hormone, known as cortisol, has shot up through the roof. To stop your hormones from going crazy, avoid these white foods that have a high glycemic index, meaning that they cause sharp insulin spikes.

FENDI launched its new rock and edgy Fashion Jewelry Collection, presented initially in the Prefall 2016 collection for the modern and daring FENDI woman. The new Collection is enriched with products that introduce an original way of wearing jewels, with a feminine attitude.

The mono earrings make their first appearance in the Collection, yet immediately becoming the main protagonists with their avant-garde shapes that play with eye-catching geometries. A trendy pull-through version is created in thin gold-metal, embellished with a black and gold FENDI stud – by now a distinctive signature of the Maison. On the other side, a gold elongated pyramid is decorated by a precious black Onyx stone on top, hung upside down on a circular earring that can be innovatively worn like an ear cuff.

The FENDI studs seen on bags, shoes and accessories adorn all-over the classic leather bracelet in a multicolor palette of pastel colors, from pink to teal, with metallic touches of gold and silver. Perfect to add a pop and urban touch to every style, this contemporary studded bracelet can be worn singularly or multi-layered for a real “arm party”!
