Simple Tip #6 – I can not tell a lie, I was addicted to soda. I’m sure many of us can relate to some sort of love/hate relationship with soda or a sugary drink in general. We’re all guilty of drinking basically anything but water, but soda especially can be ruining your skin. In one serving of soda, there are on average 44 grams of sugar, which translates to 11 teaspoons of sugar, meaning the acidity of soda is extremely high. All of that sugar and acidity goes straight to your skin, causing irritation, acne and redness. Switch to water and cut out excess sugar intake in your diet for clearer skin.
