Barbeque and Other Charred Meat
Barbeques, flame grilled burgers, and roasted marshmallows? Smells like picnic, huh? But wait, it also smells like pimple breakouts!
Charred meat may contain pro-inflammatory hydrocarbons, which could present a problem since inflammation breaks down the collagen in your skin, explains Dr. Ostad. You don’t necessarily need to banish BBQ from your vocab, but at least make sure you scrape off the black stuff, and clean the grill afterward so you don’t contaminate your next meal.
