It is also necessary to avoid spicy foods when you have spider veins and puffiness which becomes severe when ladies are around menopause.

- SALTY FOODS
Salty foods are hazardous for retaining water in the body which gives the body a puffy look. Excess salt in the body also increases the blood pressure and consequently weakens the heart which shows on the body at the end of the day. Researchers and medical practitioners advised that it is best to eat as little salt possible and eat more fresh against processed foods.

Alcohol is notoriously popular for making the skin age faster! It is known to secrete cortisol/stress hormone that wears out the skin, damages skin cells and collagen production leaving the skin aging fast. Desist from making this your best friend and live healthily.
