Even though we celebrate Hari Raya in moderation, our favorite dishes on Hari Raya are still prepared and served. For those of you who take extra care of your skin, did you know some Hari Raya dishes are not good for the skin? Among them:
There are many types of Raya cookies and of course, it has relatively high sugar content. A large amount of sugar in food accelerates the aging process and cell damage. To maintain skin firmness and elasticity, you should reduce your intake of sugar and foods high in sugar.
For those of you who are prone to acne, eat less peanut gravy because fried peanuts can cause acne. You can eat it but in moderate quantities.
Rendang contains spices and if it is too spicy, it can activate the sweat glands and cause our face to quickly become oily. Indirectly, it can be a problem for the skin. If you like spicy food, you should diligently wash your face when sweating to prevent bacteria and avoid clogged pores.
Carbonated drinks have a high sugar content and should be avoided because not only unhealthy, but the high sugar content will cause oily skin and worsen the condition of acne-prone skin.
Hari Raya only celebrated once a year, but don't forget to take care of your diet if you love your skin!
