The Effects Of Sugar On Your Skin & How Antioxidants Can Help

The Effects Of Sugar On Your Skin & How Antioxidants Can Help

Easter is just around the corner, and while thoughts of sugar-coated marshmallow treats and chocolate eggs and bunnies may be hopping through your mind, be sure to remain mindful of how much sugar you are consuming and the effects that it can have not only on your waistline, but also your skin.

While we are younger we enjoy bright, youthful skin that is firm and full. When we start to reach our 30s, the ravages of a lifetime of sugar consumption (amongst other factors) begin to slowly creep in and reveal themselves in the forms of premature aging, wrinkles, loss of suppleness and discoloration/hyperpigmentation.

But how does this happen?

The sugar molecules in your system attach themselves to proteins and fats during a process called glycation; the end product of glycation is something called AGEs (Advanced Glycation End). In turn, AGEs cause protein fibers in the skin to become stiff and malformed. The proteins in your body that are most negatively affected are (unfortunately) collagen and elastin – those building blocks that make your skin look supple, plump and healthy.

How to prevent it.

Fortunately, there are ways to prevent glycation from occurring, and those include a healthy diet rich in antioxidants, regular exercise, adequate water intake and a well thought out skincare routine. When choosing beauty products, look for natural or organic ingredients for skin care whenever possible; non-natural products may contain ingredients that could possibly do more harm than good, and may also contain harsh chemicals, sulfates, parabens, fragrances or chemical preservatives.

The best products for skin damage caused by sugar.

The best natural anti-aging skincare products to fight glycation should be high in antioxidants. Consider products that contain ingredients such as blueberries, vitamin e, vitamin a, CO-Q10 and hyaluronic acid. With these power ingredients at hand, you can go ahead enjoy a piece of candy or two with minimal guilt!
