Donuts, candies & lollypops make you age faster!

If you think that you will get fat or a tooth decay because of eating sweets, then of course you’re right. However, this is not a complete list of damage that sugar does to your body.

Scientific research shows that sugar, or more precisely glucose, also destroys collagen. Glucose molecules attach to collagen molecules and shorten their lifespan. This process is called a glycation.

The effect on the skin? Ageing – loss of skin firmness, sagging and wrinkles.

Be careful, because the same reaction occurs when you consume carbohydrates with a high glycemic index, which convert into glucose during digestion.
