Eat less sugar – you’re sweet enough already!

Is your sweet tooth aging you?

Although there are lots of factors that age your skin, sugar is probably one of the worst offenders for outright aging your face and body. Not only should you be avoiding sugar for dietary reasons, you now have the added incentive of protecting your looks from the aging ravages of sugar. Research shows that the more times you indulge into something sweet like that candy jar in the office, latte on the way to work, or celebratory Birthday cake the faster you will age.

The science lesson
Sugar bonds with proteins in your body in a process called glycation. These sugar-bonded proteins produce free radicals which destroy your collagen and elastin, the building blocks that keep your skin strong and supple. They also harden collagen and elastin, and prevent the body from making more. All these effects mean your skin loses its elasticity, lines and wrinkles start to set in, and signs of aging become more visible.

What can we do?
Skincare can now play a large role in the health of your skin. With lots of newer research, scientists have found that amino acids have been shown to block the buildup of AGEs. Look for products that have Peptides, Antioxidants, and Retinoids.  The Dream Team of antioxidants and retinoids help repair and stimulate the collagen process which can not only repair the skin, but reverse the glycation process.The good news is that you’re never too late to prevent the signs of aging. Now that you know about the damage sugar can cause to your skin, here’s a few of our favorite “AGE busters” that will help stop the damage.
