the sugar effect
These days it’s hard to avoid autopilot snacking For many of us, life has been uprooted and the lack of routine and unlimited kitchen access coupled with added anxiety and stress is the perfect storm for mindless munching. . . A high SUGAR diet can really do a number on your skin!
Blame it on a natural process known as Glycation, in which the sugar in your blood stream attaches to proteins to form harmful new molecules known as AGEs - Advanced End Products.
The more sugar you consume, the more AGEs you develop and accumulate. Higher than normal AGEs levels cause damage to proteins, making them stiffer and more subject to premature aging. Collagen and Elastin are the most vulnerable proteins and once damaged, they become dry and brittle causing skin to thin, discolor, wrinkle and sag so a high sugar diet can really do a number on your skin!
Ant-glycation moisturizers (like GUINOT's Pleine Vie and Age Logic) contain ingredients that neutralize the damaging effects of Glycation and help your skin regain firmness and radiance. Plus, resisting the temptation to have that additional donut or chocolate bar is directly linked to maintaining healthy, balanced skin. . .
