- Sugar affects not only your weight but your skin as well. It accelerates glycation, the process in which excess glucose molecules link with collagen, damaging it and making it rigid. This makes your skin age faster, causes wrinkles to appear, and disrupts pigmentation.
- The only way to preserve the health of your skin is to cut down on sugar.
- All these symptoms may signify that your body is incapable of metabolizing gluten, a protein contained in wheat, rye, oats, and barley and drinks based on them (beer, whiskey, vodka, etc.).
- Check if you have gluten intolerability by excluding the products containing it for 2-3 weeks and watching your skin. If the symptoms persist after 2 weeks, then it’s some other kind of tolerability failure, yet you should still cut down on simple carbs and baked foods.
