We have known for a long time that a diet that is high in processed food and refined sugar is bad for your waistline. We know now that beyond the superficial concerns about a spare tyre that sugar consumption is also linked to a host of health concerns from heart diseases, diabetes, stroke and even blindness.
Sweet treats and products made with refined sugars are not just bad for your waistline and health… sugar directly contributes to wrinkles, age spots, blemishes, lack lustre skin and cellulite!
Sugar is a major cause of AGE – Advanced Glycation End Products- which form in the body when excess sugars connect proteins, including collagen and elastin in your skin into stiff rigid bonds. The result is that your skin begins to wrinkle, sag and thin, they damage blood vessels and create free radicals and inflammation in the body…making you look and feel older than your years.
The bottom line is that Sugar is bad for your skin. Sugar steals nutrients and hydration from your skin, suppresses your immune system, feeds bad bacteria and curbs the ant aging hormones in your body. You may enjoy eating that ready meal, slice of cake or soft drink …but they are causing you long term damage, inside and out.
The only way to stop this vicious cycle is to kick your sugar habit.
Remember that sugar isn’t just the white stuff that is added to tea & coffee, nor is it resigned to sweet treats and soft drinks. Its is entirely possible to be a sugar addict while eating a diet that is high is fruit, vegetables and grains.
