Not only can sugar make you overweight and ill but it is also one of the biggest ageing culprits there is- speeding up the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
When blood sugar levels rise sugar attaches itself to collagen fibres in your skin. Collagen is the substance in our skin that helps it stay firm and look more youthful. When collagen breaks down your skin appears more wrinkly and begins sagging.
Too much sugar causes premature breakdown of collagen causing people to age quicker.
