Sugar and Skin Aging
Sugar and Skin AgingThe aging process has really come under scrutiny in the past few years because everyone wants beautiful skin that is more youthful than it actually is!

However, you may or may not know that sugar can actually have an adverse effect and make you look older by causing wrinkles and aging your skin.

The health implications of sugar are well known via research into diabetes, but the effect it can have on your skin is relatively unknown in comparison. That is not to say that you cannot eat sugar because you can, but read on to find out more on the subject!

We will first deal with the effect that sugar has on your skin and then how you can combine an interesting diet with youthful skin!

Sugar causes problems for your skin via glycation. This is a natural process that takes place within the body. A Miami and New York dermatologist, Dr Fredric Brandt, has researched this in depth. The sugar will attach to various proteins when it is consumed and moves into your bloodstream. The compound created are then called advanced glycation end products (AGEs).

In turn, glycation

actually increases the more sugar you eat. As the number of AGEs in your body increases, it will begin to show in your skin. It damages the cells, particularly the elastin and collagen, so your skin will begin to look older. Collagen is one of the most important elements of your skin and has three types I, II and III. The latter is the longer lasting of the three. However, an increased amount of sugar will cause III to degrade and turn into I. This will then degrade your skin and cause rapid aging.

AGE proteins also neutralize antioxidants and they therefore leave your skin open to damage from the environment and attacks from within via the free radicals that antioxidants are supposed to neutralize. Environmental attacks may come from the sun or pollution and internal one from stress and a poor diet as well as free radicals. You have two attacks to fend off at the same time, and all because you eat sugar!

However, it is never too late to improve the condition of your skin and collagen can be maintained in a number of ways so that you can hold on to youthful skin for that little bit longer! Try the tips below!

Tip Number 1

The first guideline is to eat less sugar in particular the refined ones. It is advisable to do this little by little instead of just cutting sweet things completely out of your diet. Fruit and vegetables can really help you because they only contain natural sugars and these are far better than synthetic ones. This prevents the amount of AGE increasing!

Tip Number 2

Aim for 10% of your overall intake to be sugar. This may be tantamount to cutting it by two thirds at the moment, but your skin will thank you! You can check food labels to gage how much you eat and need to cut down. All food labels will list carbs so you can use this as a guideline.

Tip Number 3

Hidden sugar is often the problem for so many people because it is hard to detect. Look for the following on food labels dextrose, sucrose, fruit juice concentrate, maltose, maple syrup, corn syrup, barley malt and molasses. All of those are sugars by another name! However, the worst offender is fructose so steer clear of it!

Skin and sugar are not good together under any cir*****stances so do your best to find an easy balance between the two if you want your skin to look healthy and remain healthy for longer. If you reduce the amount of sugar in your diet then you will also feel a lot healthier in yourself and keep health problems at bay.
