Is my love of candy and baked goods affecting my skin?
The glycation theory is interesting and it’s really not known yet how much products that might disrupt or fight the glycation process in skin will affect the appearance and quality of skin. Right now it’s more an interesting theory with just a few products on the market with not a lot of science behind them.
But READ THIS!!! Your skin is an organ like any other organ and you cannot and won’t be very healthy if you eat baked good and candy more than as an occasional treat 1-2 times a month. Would you pour sugar in the gas tank in your car. It kind of does the same thing to all your inner mechanics. If you could make one resolution this year, make it that one. Find a good support group or a nutritionist and wean yourself off of the sugar. I can almost guarantee you will feel and look better. You can do it!! Dr. I
