Quitting sugar will not only save your pocket and your health but that it will save your skin as well.
While sugar consumption does not affect everyone’s skin, in the same way, it’s still good to know what the consequences of your latest sugar-craving could be for your skin.
Here are three things you should know:
Blood sugar imbalance
A high-sugar diet causes your blood sugar level to rise dramatically. It falls again when your body releases insulin into the cells. The big drop in your blood sugar level creates internal stress in your body, which can sometimes result in your skin breaking out and leaning more towards the dull side.
When sugar is consumed it attaches itself to proteins in your bloodstream and these then form new molecules referred to as advanced glycation end products. These are damaging not only to collagen, but also to the elastin in your skin, hence contributing to the appearance of wrinkles.
