Is it a sugar addiction that’s ruining your skin?

September 16, 2013 by Works with Water

We all know how tempting it can be to binge on chocolate or eat an extra slice of cake, but does that mean you are addicted to sugar? 

I am afraid it might, and not only that it could be the cause of skin breakouts, dark circles, wrinkles, dehydrated skin and can fast track the ageing process.

Sugar can be a mood-booster as it prompts the body to release the ‘happy hormone’ serotonin into the blood stream.

However, the pleasant sugar rush triggers an increase in insulin as the body strives to bring blood glucose levels back to normal. This has the knock-on effect of causing a ‘sugar crash’ and makes many crave yet more sugar, which can lead to a cycle of binge-eating.

So why does sugar affect the skin?

Well, the problem with sugar is that it makes the skin lose the plump, elastic qualities that underlie a youthful appearance. It can also cause your skin to break out because it increases inflammation.

How to cure your sugar addiction…

There’s no need to go drastic. If you make small, simple changes to your diet, it’s easy to keep them up. Start by eating more fruits and vegetables.

Drink extra water. Use fewer processed products, which hide loads of sugar. Start buying foods without sugar and add just enough to satisfy your taste.  Cut out a little bit of sugar each week.  After a few weeks, you’ll be surprised at how little you miss it.
