Refined sugar consumption triggers a process called glycation in which the sugar molecules attach themselves to proteins. The result is harmful new proteins called "AGEs" (advanced glycation end-products) that cause harm to all cells in the body.
They also make collagen proteins more rigid. The result is reduced elasticity in this important structural skin protein. Wrinkles and creases can then form more easily due to repeated ingestion of sugar, refined carbohydrates and environmental damage.
The brittle texture caused by glycation can be remedied by using skincare guardian lotions or cream. I add virgin coconut oil and herbal extracts which break down the brittle protein and replace it with a new healthy cell. The elasticity will return to your skin along with your healthy glow and the ability to reverse the fine lines by toning the skin. It may take up to a year for the total make-over but, holistically it is working on all your systems daily so you feel great while your transitioning toward optimal health.
