🍎 Today’s Health Question ~ Can Spicy Foods Make You Look Older?

True or False: Spicy foods can cause skin flareups and give you an older appearance.


TRUE: Some like it hot … and some can’t take the heat. Spicy food makes your blood vessels swell and even break, leading to purple marks on your face. If you have rosacea — common in women after menopause — the heat from spice can trigger a flare-up. It also raises your body temperature, so you sweat to cool back down. When sweat mixes with the bacteria on your skin, it can cause breakouts and blotches.



    1. Thanks for your comment, Nyasha!. I also love spicy food. I have a bit of rosacea and when I pour on the spice my cheeks light up. So, I have to watch it. I know spicy food has many health benefits. Have a great day. Stay healthy. Stay strong. Ray.
