The negative effects of sugar on your skin

Heey pessoal, hoje vou falar de uma matéria muito bacana que li sobre: The negative effects of sugar on your skin/Os efeitos negativos do açúcar em sua pele.

O post de hoje vai ser um pouco diferente, é de matéria de uma revista bem conhecida aqui dos EUA, onde fala tudo sobre Beleza e Estética.

The negative effects of sugar on your skin

Do you have “sugar-face”?

Simply put, sugar affects your skin because it damages your collagen, which results in the appearance of lines and wrinkes over time. Norwalk, CT, dermatologist Deanne Mraz Robinson, MD, says sugar has two main effects on the skin: “First, sugar causes inflammation and negatively affects the quality of collagen through the process of glycation. “While this term has become a bit of a buzzword when it comes to sugar, it’s basically a process where sugar binds to proteins in  the body – collagen and elastin fibers- and produces “advanced glycation” Dr. Nichols adds, “This advanced glycation reduces the quality of the building blocks in the skin by making the stiff and rigid, whitch traslates to an aged appearance. Because sugar breaks down your skin’s elasticity, if you eat a lot of it, evetually your skin will appear to sag.”

If looking older wasn’t enough, according to Dr. Mraz Robinson, there’s another set of problems sugar can instigate, and they actually appear on your face much faster. “Sugars can also be pro-inflammatory [a term used for foods that actually spped up the aging process]. When we ingest high-glycemic foods, our blood sugar rises and ir creates a pro-inflammatory state that affects conditions such as acne and redness, if you are prone to them. When high levels of sugar are detected in the blood, horones, including insulin-like growth factors, are released. This sets off a cascade of actions, whitch includes activating growth hormones and androgens, and results in low-grade inflammation, activation of sebaceous glands and acne flare-ups”

No português mais CLARO: o açúcar causa uma inflamação no qual afeta o colágeno através do processo de glicação, no qual resulta em linhas de expressões na pele. E também quando ingerimos uma quantidade muito grande de glicose, nosso açúcar no sangue aumenta e causa um efeito pró-inflamatório no qual aparece as afecções de pele como as acnes.

How Glycation Works

  • Sugar and high- glycemic carbohydrates quicky convert to glucose in the bloodstream.
  • This can cause a reaction called glycation.
  • These sugars attach to proteins to form molecules called AGEs (advanced glycation end products)
  • As AGEs begin to accumulate, they attach to collagen (the most prevalent protein in the body), as well as elastin, and cause these to denature.
  • This can lead to premature wrinkling, loss of elasticity and less supple skin.
  • When insulin levels spike to ward off the excess glucose, it causes increased inflammation, which can trigger and exacerbate skin conditions like acne and rosacea.

DO ANTI-GLYCATION BEAUTY PRODUCTS WORK?

You may have noticed a big beauty trend of topical products geared toward “anti-glycation”. Dr. Mraz Robinson explains these targeted products work in a similar way to the foods (like berries) you would eat to combat the negative effects of sugar from the inside out. “One such product is SkinCeuticals A.G.E. Eye complex. It contains blueberry extract, which is an anti-glycation ingredient” But, Dr. Mraz Robinson says the jury is still out. “We dont’t know if these topicals are efficacious, as they are unlikely able to penetrate to the dermis, which is where glycation occurs. In my opinion, you’re better off doing it though your diet”. Dr. Westley’s suggestion if you still aren’t sure: “We know that using products containing retinol or prescription tretinoin can stimulate new collagen to combat some of the side effects on the collagen fibers caused by sugar. Topical antioxidants are also a useful adjunct to overall skin health”

Resumindo um pouco: Hoje o mercado da beleza vem lançando alguns produtos anti-glicação, que funciona semelhante aos alimentos, no qual combate os efeitos negativos do açúcar no organismo de dentro para fora. Mas ainda não se sabe ao certo se realmente isso funciona, por conta dos produtos não penetrarem na derme onde ocorre o processo de glicação.

Os produtos que contém retinóico ou tretinoína podem estimular o colágeno e combater alguns efeitos colaterais sobre as fibras de colágeno causadas pelo açúcar.

Ou seja pessoal, o açúcar além de ter vários efeitos negativos em nosso organismo ainda prejudica também nosso colágeno.

Vamos rever o que estamos ingerindo?!
