A lot! Sugars are wrinkle makers. Sugar permanently attaches to the collagen in your skin through a process known as glycation.
Your Skin’s Enemy Foods
Simple carbohydrates are the worst offenders: white bread, candy, fried food, ice cream, fruit juice, pasta, ketchup, jam, pizza, sugar (white and brown), spaghetti, packaged snacks and sodas. Let’s face it – almost every processed food has sugar in these days.
How exactly does it damage your skin?
The sugar in your bloodstream attaches to proteins to produce harmful free radicals called advanced glycation end products (AGEs). As AGEs accumulate and damage the proteins around them. The proteins that are most vulnerable to damage are those that serve as the building blocks for your skin: collagen and elastin. These proteins keep skin firm and elastic and are responsible for the plump and characteristics of a healthy and youthful complexion. The AGEs break down collagen and elastin, resulting in sagging skin and wrinkles.
Besides the damage to your skin’s essential proteins, AGEs deactivate your body’s natural antioxidant enzymes. Without protection from antioxidants, your skin is more vulnerable to the free radical damage caused by the environment such as pollution, and UV rays. This contributes to premature aging of your skin.
How To Prevent Sugar Damage
The good news is that it’s never too late to prevent the visible signs of aging. Now you know how sugar can damage your skin, here’s how you can combat the destruction and look your best.
OUTER BEAUTY COMES FROM WITHIN

Sunrider has a Safe, Healthy Formula Another way to prevent wrinkles is to use STEVIA!
I keep SUNNYDEW in my cupboard and I carry it in my purse so that when I stop in somewhere for a meal or just a cup of tea, I’m prepared. I use it in my drinks as well as the food I cook.
• Enhances flavor of foods and beverages
• Rich in antioxidants
• No added chemicals or preservatives

• Zero calories
The main ingredient in SunnyDew is stevia, an herb indigenous to South America and used by its inhabitants for centuries as a dietary supplement.
SunnyDew undergoes a unique purifying and concentration process that keeps the plant’s natural whole-food form. Free of sugar, carbs, and calories, SunnyDew makes it possible to satisfy sweet craving.
Before anyone in the United States was using Stevia in their foods, in 1995, it was actually the Sunrider Company that successfully petitioned the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to lift the import alert on the extract of stevia leaves, thereby clearing the way for the use of stevia as a dietary supplement in the United States.
Now huge companies add Stevia to their products even though it is not made with the quality of Sunrider.
This sweet-tasting plant is high in antioxidants. It belongs to the chrysanthemum family and originated in South America. Chrysanthemum is a beautiful flower, which is an excellent source of antioxidants and contains essential minerals, such as calcium, magnesium, folate, iron, sodium, and potassium.
Q: How sweet is stevia?
A: Stevia is estimated to be between 200 to 400 times sweeter than sugar. A little bit goes a long way!
Q: How is Sunectar different from SunnyDew?
A: Sunectar is a concentrated raw extract of stevia, while SunnyDew is a purified extract concentrate of stevia. Compared to Sunectar, SunnyDew has a lighter color and a higher concentration of the Stevia.
Another Way is to Increase your Liquids!
Each refreshing sip or CALLI and FORTUNE DELIGHT provides an array of nutrients, including polyphenols, bioflavonoids, and tea catechins—all known for their antioxidant properties.
Drinking tea helps your body to carry out the key functions that support healthy skin more effectively. Sufficient liquid is essential to the production of collagen and elastin and keeping your body hydrated can improve its ability to counteract the aging effects of glycation.
Not only does tea keeping your skin moisturized and appear plump and supple, it also helps combat the buildup of dead skin cells.
The fact is that skin is an organ, and just like any other part of the body. Your skin is made up of cells. And skin cells, like any other cell in the body, are made up of water. Keeping your body hydrated can prevent wrinkles!
You’re never too old to be young!
