Does Eating Too Much Sugar Cause Wrinkles?

Sue Chung Health Guide
  • I've read that eating too much sugar can cause your skin to age faster. Is this really true?   While the idea that sugar causes wrinkles may sound like a myth, this one is gaining more traction as fact rather than fiction. It hasn't been proved definitively yet, but recent studies show some evide...

    The answer can be a yes and no. Glycation from sugar can decrease skin elasticity. Sugar can also speed bone loss and our facial bones naturally decrease with age. People can also put on body fat from sugar which stretch out the wrinkles

    For those of you who question sugar effects on the skin.  I have this relative.  Joan puts sugar on everything.   I watched her sprinkle 8 teaspoons of it over her medium size stuffed pepper.  Last night she sprinkled sugar, about 4 teaspoon, over her open face pork sandwich.  When she eats a tomato base meal she will pour the sugar on. I find an excuse not to accept dinner invitation from her because the entrees are sweeter then any dessert I have ever tasted.  Joan is very, very wrinkled, drooping eyelids, turkey neck, etc. She looks 20 years older then her friends her age.  She is 70 and so help me looks older then my 90 year old mother-in-law.  Believe what you read about sugar and wrinkles.

    Since learning about Glycation and the harmful effects of sugar, I have dropped over 10 dress sizes. I have learned to treat Glycation from the inside and outside.

     

    From the inside, I reduced my sugar consumption and eliminated high fructose corn syrup from my diet. My diet is rich in vegetables, fruits, lean proteins, healthy fats and whole grains. You can view my tubby before picture here :) www.smallworldbeauty.com

     

    From the outside, I fight glycation with a proven anti-glycation formula called MEG 21 with Supplamine which was discovered by accident through diabetes research.

    Why is it everythign that tastes yummy is bad for you?  Just doesn't seem fair.  Thanks for your post, though I have to admit, that chocolate chip cookie will be hard to pass up - wrinkle or no wrinkle.

     

    Bye for now and all the best, sue
