Dreadful news!

My sister called me today and told me that SUGAR CAUSES WRINKLES!

(let's let that sink in, shall we?)

I've always joked that the minute I find out the sugar causes wrinkles is the minute I limit my sugar consumption. On the whole my diet IS pretty good, but I definitely indulge as long as my clothes are fitting and I'm feeling good. But this news? Yikes! No more running millions of miles to make up for millions of fun size candy bars? Oh the agony...

I think it's probably one of those cases though, everything in moderation, and possibly it applies to refined Sugars.

Don't forget other Sugars occur like Xylitol in Gum, Lactose in Milk, Fructose in Fruit etc etc, and if eating Oranges made you look prematurely old, then the world's gone mad.

Obviously I'm just speculating, as I don't know what this report said.

Take care and best wishes :-) :-).

hi Leslie this is so true. I first read about it and the Clinique counter. They have a brochure that discusses this process ..the process is called Glycation. Dr. Brandt has a serum to help with the effects of this..
Here is how he explains Glycation:

glycation is a natural process where sugar molecules in the cells stick to protein fibers binding them together causing fibers to become stiff and brittle. as a result, skin loses its elasticity and becomes more vulnerable to wrinkling, sagging and uv damage. hydroxyprolisilane C slows down this activity, protecting the network of protein fibers.

for optimal results, check nutrition labels and avoid added sugars such as cane sugar, corn syrup, fructose and honey. committing yourself to healthy eating habits is like committing yourself to an exercise program. making a concerted and conscious effort to remove excess sugar from your life is all about change and self discipline.

Yes it is definitely true..Hope this helps!
