    Q: How Bad Is Sugar for My Skin?

    A: The jury is still out, but recent findings suggest that eating excess sugar can trigger a process called “glycation,” which may accelerate skin aging by decreasing its supply of collagen and elastin. Additionally, sweets could contribute to acne flare-ups, says Dr. Katz, since they rev up all the body’s natural functions, including oil production. Not willing to curb your sugar intake? Prescriptives has introduced Anti- AGE Advanced Protection Lotion, which is said to slow the glycation process.
