Love Your Skin
Avoid eating too many sweets from your sweetie this Valentine's Day. ¬†They do actually impact the health of our skin and cause pesky problems that we all hate.
Did you know...
Too much sugar in your body causes inflammation. Inflammation produce enzymes that break down collagen and elastin (your support fibers in the skin). Therefore, you can speed up the loss of firmness and tone of the skin. This also can create a dull or sallow complexion.
Excess sugar can attach itself to your skin's collagen, which can make creases more prominent and also cause problems for those with conditions like acne and rosacea.
Finally, sugar is known to suppress the efficiency of your immune system. As your body's largest organ in your immune system, your skin would be less protected from fighting to bacteria and other invaders.
