Cut sugar out of your diet, drink more water
Collagen is a protein responsible for healthy joints and skin elasticity, or stretchiness.
It’s in your bones, muscles, and blood, comprising three quarters of your skin and a third of the protein in your body.
As you age, your existing collagen breaks down, and it gets harder for your body to produce more.
But fret not, there is something we can do to protect and maintain our body’s natural collagen.
Processed sugar is the enemy of great skin.
Sugar causes cross-linking of collagen, resulting in stiffening and loss of elasticity of our skin. The more sugar we have, the more our skin starts to suffer.
