Sugar, as much as we love it, is one of the absolute worst things for your skin. It is the most aging food that we consume, and weakens our immune system to boot! Too much of it will make your skin lackluster, and speed up your body’s production of wrinkles. This is because it damages your collagen and elastin, two things that keep your skin plump and young.
Unfortunately, studies have shown that sugar feeds cancer as well. So in general, we all ought to cut back. When it comes to your skin, too much of it in your body weakens your ability to fight bacteria. Long story short, more bacteria = more toxins = worse skin.
So choose to satisfy your sweet tooth with natural sugars like those found in fruit, instead of that candy bar!
