Ready to learn 3 ways to shield your skin from sugar damage?

Few people know how sugar can take its toll on your skin.

Eating too much sugar can impact the collagen matrix of the skin which gives skin its structure, smooth and youthful appearance. 

Sugar can

  • make your skin sag
  • lead to premature aging
  • create blemishes
  • enhance wrinkles

High glycemic index food can cause inflammation, which can make a number of skin conditions worse. 

Signs of Sugar Affecting Your Skin 

Dark Circles

Elastin and collagen molecules in the skin are affected by sugar. This can lead to dark circles and dehydrated skin.


Inflammation causes your body to make more sebum, an oily substance in your skin. Both inflammation and excess sebum can lead to acne. 

Lines and Wrinkles

Glycation is a process where sugar molecules damage collagen and cause wrinkles which affects your skin shape, structure, and firmness.

3 Ways To Shield Your Skin From Sugar Damage


Stop liquid sugar

Research shows that getting sugar in liquid form is much worse than getting it from solid food. This is why high sugar beverages like soda are among the worst things you can put into your body.

This includes sugary beverages such as carbonated soft drinks, sugary coffee drinks, energy drinks, and fruit punch

Avoid Highly Processed Food

Here are some common examples of highly processed foods…

  • sweetened breakfast cereals such as Froot Loops, Trix, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, and sweetened oatmeals
  • baking mixes such as stuffing, cake, brownie, and cookie mixes
  • reconstituted meat products such as hot dogs and fish sticks
  • Sweet or savory packaged snacks such as chips and cookies.
  • packaged breads and buns.
