Sugar Is The Most Important Enemy Of Our Skin

Some factors can cause our skin to wear at an earlier age. Acıbadem Kozyatağı Hospital Dermatology Specialist Dr. Burçak Bozdemir Aral talked about the damage of the wrong nutrition.

“Incorrect nutrition can cause premature aging of our skin. For example, sugar is one of the most important enemies of our skin. When sugar molecules are present in the body too much, they change the structure of the protein. As a result, collagen and elastin proteins, the most important structures of the skin, can be damaged. Damage to these materials that provide skin elasticity and firmness can also cause sagging, wrinkles and deformations in the skin.

What should be done? You can protect the health of your skin with a nutritious diet rich in vegetables and fruits, poor in sugar and salt. Vitamins and minerals in vegetables and fruits are essential nutrients that make our skin look healthy and bright. Consume vegetables and fruits containing vitamins A, C, and E, especially those that enhance the texture of the skin and strengthen the connective tissue of the skin. (pomegranate, orange, kiwi, carrot, nuts) Besides the main meals, add a green salad rich in vitamins and minerals to your diet. Choose fresh fruit instead of packaged, processed, ready-made products. At snack times, consume nuts that contain beneficial minerals for the skin, such as selenium and zinc.”
