If you notice changes in texture, rashes, dicolorations and growths on your skin, you should immediately consult your doctor since all they can all indicate more severe internal problems.
Nigma Talib, naturopathic doctor and skincare states that the foods you eat not only affect your gut, but they can be signs of other helth issues.
“Certain food groups appear to be particularly damaging: gluten, dairy, sugar and alcohol. Each taxes the body in specific ways, contributing to a cluster of ageing symptoms such as spots, puffiness, changes in skin tone, premature fine lines and wrinkles or sagging.”
