It’s difficult not to indulge in sweet treats at a time like Easter, although perhaps understanding glycation a little better will help deter you.
Consider these foodie facts too, to achieve overall radiance skin and prevent the breakdown of essential collagen.
Say no to sugar
Processed sugar increases endorphins, mood-boosting chemicals that make you temporarily happier. A mid-afternoon doughnut will make your day sweeter, but by loading your body with sugar, you force the cells to breakdown in your body. Over time this makes them less resilient, making your skin more vulnerable to wrinkles and intensifying dryness.
If it’s too late and you already had the doughnut, choose products specifically designed to protect you from the harmful effects of glycation.
