If you want to keep your skin in tip-top condition,聽steer clear of these 17 foods that wreak havoc on your face.

milk

1.聽Milk: Got acne? Milk may do a body good, but what it does for the skin is another story. Added growth hormones and sugar in milk spike insulin, which causes inflammation and increases聽oil production. That means聽unsightly, red pimples 鈥 yuck. (via Refinery29)

White-Bread

2.聽White Bread: A diet with too many starchy foods like white breads, cakes and donuts leads to clogged pores聽and acne-prone skin. These foods can cause rapid spikes in blood sugar, which trigger the dreaded breakout. (via Everyday Health)

cereal

3.聽鈥淗ealthy鈥 Cereal: Don鈥檛 let the package lie. 鈥淲hole grain,鈥 鈥渓ow fat鈥 and 鈥渘atural鈥 cereals can contain spoonfuls of hidden sugar in each bite. Read your labels and protect your skin from cereals filled with wrinkle-inducing sugars. (via Oprah)

5.聽Chips: When you鈥檙e struggling to resist that crinkling bag of salty goodness, remember this: Chips are packed with refined carbs, which can cause a lot of stress for your body. That stress can take聽the form of wrinkles, fine lines and pale skin. (via Prevention)

Fried-Foods

6.聽Fried Foods: Dang, why do French fries have to be so good, right? We all know fried foods aren鈥檛 great for your聽waistline, but turns out they aren鈥檛 the best for your face either.聽They can actually cause oil and bacteria buildup in your body, which translates to oily, puffy skin.

Grilled-Meat

7.聽Chargrilled Meat: Heating meat at high temperatures produces a chemical reaction between the fat and protein that results in compounds called 鈥渁dvanced glycation end products鈥 (AGES), which is exactly what鈥檒l happen to your skin if you overdo it on the 鈥榗ue. Like with everything, BBQ is best in moderation. (via Oprah)

8.聽Deli Meats: While your favorite聽deli聽sandwiches聽might be convenient and tasty,聽those deli meats and hot dogs are packed with nitrites. Nitrates are guilty of many聽health risks, including thin and aging skin. (via Best Health)

Soy

9.聽Soy: Unsightly breakouts popping up around your聽chin, jaw line or neck? Soy milk, tofu and聽soy derivatives in everything from energy bars to potato chips might be at fault, thanks to soy鈥檚 natural plant estrogens. (via Upkeep,聽photo via聽Food Matters)

10.聽Shellfish:聽Shrimp, crab and other crustaceous pleasures of the sea may trigger breakouts in those with sensitivities to iodine, a component聽found in shellfish. (via New Beauty)

Seaweed

11.聽Seaweed: Seaweed is one of those things where too much can have an聽adverse effect. It鈥檚 rich in iodine, and anyone with skin sensitivities聽may experience flare-ups of red, pimply skin if they go overboard with the seaweed. When eaten in moderation, this sea veggie gets an A+ in nutrition. (via All Women Stalk)

Sushi

12. Sushi: If dry,聽aged skin isn鈥檛 how you wanna聽to roll, then we suggest eating sushi in moderation. It鈥檚 not so much the fish, but the large quantities of salt and rice that go into each roll, sucking away moisture from your skin and leaving it dull and dry. (via Popsugar)

13.聽Soda: We know, we know: Soda is bad for us. But it鈥檚 especially bad for your skin 鈥 all that sugar breaks聽down collagen and accelerates聽the skin鈥檚 aging process. Sip聽on good ol鈥 H2O instead. (via Women鈥檚 Day)

Soda
Caffeine

14.聽Coffee: If you stick to the 鈥渙ne cup a day鈥 rule of thumb, you may be doing your skin a favor. When you slip into the realm of venti lattes and super-sized mugs, you might be drying your聽skin and increasing the production of cortisol, which ages and thins the skin. (via Beauty High)

15.聽Alcohol: Don鈥檛 overdo it when it comes to beer, wine and cocktails, 鈥檆ause you may end up with more than just a bad headache.聽Alcohol dehydrates skin, leaving it dry, wrinkly and yearning for moisture. Drink responsibly for healthy skin. (via Good Housekeeping)

Salt

16.聽Salt: Puffy face? Check your salt consumption, because anything over 1,500 mg of sodium per day can wreak havoc on your skin. Excessive salt intake can聽cause fine lines and wrinkles, especially around the eyes, where skin is thinner. (via Women鈥檚 Day)

Agave

17.聽Agave: Foods that are touted as聽鈥済ood for you鈥 aren鈥檛 always so, as is the case with this sweet syrup. That 鈥healthy鈥 switch you made by selecting agave over refined聽sugars can actually contain more fructose than the dreaded high-fructose corn syrup and聽may speed the appearance of aging.
