9 foods that are making you ugly

Because you are what you eat and you look like a cheeseburger.


Well, we say ugly, but here we're going to tell you which type of foods are giving you spots, making you bloat and making you sweat. Essentially, we are telling you which foods are unhealthy.

We say this because symptoms you may view as being purely cosmetic are almost always unhealthy as well.

The majority of the time greasy skin, bloating and obesity are caused by a diet that not only affects your outsides, but your insides as well.

So maybe cut down (but by no means give up) on these foods and drinks and not only will you look better, but you'll live longer as well.

Coffee can stain your teeth, make your breath smell bad and due to all the caffeine can seriously mess with your bowel movements. Too much caffeine can also lead to dehydration which will leave you looking pale and unwell.

Spicy Foods

Spicy foods increase the speed of your metabolism which means your body burns calories faster. This also means that your body creates much more heat. This can cause you to visibly sweat. Which isn't all that nice.


Salt makes your entire body bloat - even your face and fingers. Excessive salt consumption over time can reduce the elasticity of your skin due to it frequently swelling and deflating over short periods of time.


Not only can sugar cause a bad case of gas but when eaten in the form of high-glycemic foods (white breads, cereal, potatoes and dates) can make you break out in spots.

Dairy Products

Dairy products can be problematic for the human digestive system. Even if you aren't lactose intolerant it can give you gas, bloating and in some cases cramping.


Most cereals these days are made from refined grains and contain chemical flavourings. These can cause bloating and eaten in excess obesity as you can be unaware that what you thought was a healthy breakfast may in fact be full of calories.


Garlic won't just make your breath smell. It can really get under your skin, making you sweat more and smell more, even after taking a shower or cleaning your teeth.


Broccoli is another smelly sweat offender. Cabbage is a member of the cruciferae food family. Foods in this family contain sulphur compounds which makes us sweat. And if you've ever been to a volcano you'll know - sulphur doesn't smell all that great. Other family offenders include cabbage, cauliflower, horseradish and mustard. However, these foods are good for you so don't give them up. Sulphur will only begin to become apparent after eating very large amounts.


Getting drunk can lead to you being dehydrated and having a terrible night's sleep. This can lead to bloodshot eyes, bags under your eyes and a weak complexion. It can lead to weight gain and in excess can even destroy muscle. Red Wine is also a really quite bad candidate for tooth-staining.
