11 Foods That Should Be Avoided To Slow Down Aging
2. Replace French Fries With Sweet Potato Fries
Very few foods are as bad for your skin, as french fries, as they’re both salty and contain a lot of AGEs because potatoes are rich in sugars and they’re fried in oil at extremely high temperatures. So don’t be surprised if your skin feels extra dry and puffy the morning after you’ve eaten french fries.
A great alternative for french fries are sweet potato fries, especially if you cut down on the saltiness as well. Sweet potatoes contain a lot of copper, which can help counteract the effect of AGEs because it helps collagen production.
