🍎 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.

Answer: 

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.
