Your Skin on Sugar It’s no surprise that overdoin

Published

However, we all know that something so good can’t be good for us, and it turns out the perils of sugar are even worse than we thought.

“Sugar and starchy (high glycemic) foods are extremely damaging to the skin and, in fact, all organs Through a process known as glycation, sugar molecules bind to proteins in the skin to create advanced glycosylation end products — appropriately called AGEs for short. These AGEs are free-radicals (similar to the free-radicals caused by sun exposure), and they lead to inflammation thatbreaks down collagen and elastin. The result? Wrinkles.

 

 

“The glycation process causes skin to lose elasticity and wrinkle more easily, decreasing overall resilience,” explains New York City and Miami dermatologist Fredric Brandt, MD. So if your diet is high in sugar, every other bad habit — smoking, tanning, etc. — becomes even worse.

 

The good news is there are changes you can make — to both your skin care and your diet — that will help. Scientists have discovered skin care ingredients that help stop glycation by preventing the glucose-collagen bonds from forming. And they’ve found other ingredients that can help eliminate the AGE free radicals that are already present in the skin.

And of course, there’s diet. A few strategic changes in what you eat — the most obvious being cutting back on sugar — and how you prepare your food can make a significant difference.

Knowing about the changes is one thing, having the willpower to make them is another.
