11 Foods That Should Be Avoided To Slow Down Aging
9. Avoid Frying On Very High Heat
Avoid frying foods at high temperatures if you’re using polyunsaturated oils, such as canola, corn, vegetable or sunflower oil. Bringing these oils to high temperatures can release harmful free radicals, which, in turn, will raise inflammation levels in the skin.
And though it may seem that you’re not consuming a lot of oil, just try blotting the foods you fry on a paper towel and you’ll see for yourself how much of coats your foods. Blotting oil off foods won’t help anyway, as the harmful compounds can penetrate your food.
Instead, choose olive or coconut oil for frying, as it can counteract inflammation and contains vitamin E, essential for skin health.
