Sugar is as ageing as smoking and sunbathing

Forget botox or plastic surgery – if you want to reverse the ravages of time quit Sugar.

That’s right – research has shown that it is as damaging to your body as smoking and sunbathing – well, when it comes to aging. It’s not as linked to cancer as the other too!

But seriously folks, I’ve been saying this forever. YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT

Research published in the British Journal of Dermatology has shown that sugar makes your skin more wrinkled and thinner. And what’s worse, the ageing effects are quicker once you’re over 35 years old.

When you eat sugar Advanced Glycation Ends are formed in the bloodstream. Ironically shortened to AGE, these accumulate and damage collagen and elastin. It also makes your skin more susceptible to damage from other agers including cigarette smoke and UV rays.
