We all know sugar is a health and fitness no-no. But it turns out your sugar consumption can have a direct affect on the health of your skin -- and not in a good way. Through a process known as glycation, sugar molecules bind to proteins in the skin to create free-radicals (similar to those caused by sun exposure), which lead to inflammation that breaks down collagen and elastin. The result? Wrinkles. Luckily, there are a few simple changes you can make in your diet and skin care routine to combat the negative effects of sugar. See what you can do to stop glycation now.
