Grilled chicken

Grilled chicken is quite popular in many health-conscious diets, but it might not be doing you any favors when it comes to your skin. That’s because it includes AGEs, proteins or lipids which occur in foods cooked at a high temperature.

The average AGE consumption is about 15,000 kilounits (kU) per day, according to a 2013 study published in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association.
