How Starbucks Drinks Destroy Your Skin

Listen I get it… It’s delicious…it’s tempting, it helps you bond with your friends and you need the caffeine to get through your day but does this piece of temporary enjoyment worth wrecking your body’s and skin health?

A drink you buy at Starbucks could contain up to 25 teaspoons of sugar per serving
That’s three times the amount of sugar in one can of Coke, and more than three times the maximum adult daily intake recommended

Not to mention the artificial colors, flavoring, thickening agents, and the crazy amounts of dairy you are consuming in one sitting.

Consuming conventional dairy products are the number one trigger for developing inflammatory skin conditions such as acne, eczema and psoriasis.

And don’t think their dairy-free versions a super healthy too. Most diary-free milks used in coffee shops have added sugars and a thickening agent that will help create a creamy foam on the top but totally wreck your gut health.

When you are consuming sugar in hot drinks, it’s easy to drink a large volume of liquid in a short time, and any sugar it contains is very rapidly absorbed into the body.
You would never be able to consume the same amount of sugar in a bowl of rice

This sugar rush will spike up your insulin levels and as soon your sugar levels lower an hour later you will start to crave food.

These excess calories will get stored in your fat cells which will start to accumulate under the skin and around your gut, the liver, and pancreas.

Fatty deposits on the liver will slow down the detoxification of toxins from the body and lead to inflammation.

While fat is the most despised organ in our body and we all love to get rid of much it, it plays a very important role in the body. Fat helps absorb essential vitamins such as Vitamin A, E, D and K, it is responsible to generate energy.

On the other hand, it also releases certain chemicals and hormones to the body which can lead to inflammation.

Regularly consuming sugar will lead to glycation in the skin. Glycation is a process that is caused by the presence of excess glucose in skin fibers. During this process, the sugar molecules attach to collagen and elastin fibers and slowly break them down. This collagen and elastin loss will lead to fine lines, wrinkles, and premature aging.

Regularly drinking these sugary drinks will not only lead to diabetes, obesity and hormonal imbalances but also can trigger inflammatory skin problems such as acne, eczema, psoriasis, and premature aging.

Ditch your frappuccinos or lattes to brewed green tea chai tea or herbal teas which are high in antioxidants and provide you with slow-release caffeine and won’t cause inflammation in your body.
