Blah..blah..Ages the skin!! Not on my watch!
We know very well having a sweet tooth can cause us our waistline. But don’t you know too, that overeating sugar can make our skin dull and wrinkles!!.
When you’ve sugar in your bloodstream attaches to proteins to form harmful new molecules call advanced glycation end products (or, AGEs for short). The more sugar you eat, the more AGEs you develop. And AGEs damage adjacent protein in a domino-like collagen and elastin. The most vulnerable to keep skin firm and elastin. Once collagen damaged and elastic become dry and brittle, leading to wrinkles and sagging.
This is healthy skin and older skin. Younger skin got collagen more like grape. Older skin got collagen more like raisins!!

People with diabetes often show early signs of skin aging.
The good news is it’s never too late to turn back the clock. We can rebuild collagen like changing our diets, use skin care with retinoids, always wear SPF and get facial regularly.
What are Free Radicals?
Free radicals are atoms or groups of atoms with an odd (unpaired) number of electrons and can be formed when oxygen interacts with certain molecules.
Once formed these highly reactive radicals can start a chain reaction like dominoes.
As we are aging and environmental factors such as pollution, radiation, cigarette smoke and herbicides can also spawn free radicals.
Normally, our body can handle free radicals, but if antioxidants are unavailable, or if the free-radical production becomes excessive, damage can occur
Our skin will age faster with wrinkles to cause us to have different diseases!!!!.
We need foods rich with antioxidants for prevention such as liver, egg yolk, milk, butter, spinach, carrots, squash, broccoli, yams, tomato, cantaloupe, peaches and grains.
And always wear sun protection.

Melasma is a chronic skin disorder that results in symmetrical, blotchy, brownish facial pigmentation.
What causes Melasma?
The cause of melasma is complex. The pigmentation is due to overproduction of melanin by the pigment cells, melanocytes, which is taken up by the keratinocytes (epidermal melanosis) and deposit in the dermis. Melasma commonly arises in healthy non-pregnant adults and can be genetic also.
Known triggers for Melasma
- Sun Damage
- Hormone treatments; Oral centraceptive pills containing Oestrogen and/or progesterone, hormone replacement, intrauterine devices and implants.
- Certain medication (including new targeted therapies for cancer), or scented or deodorant soaps
- Hypothyoroidism (low levels of circulative thyroid hormone).
Who gets Melasma?
Melasma is more common in women than in men; only 1-in-4 to 1-in-20 affected individuals are male. Being pregnant is certainly a joy. But you can be experiencing changes in your skin such as Melasma AKA “MASK OF PREGNANCY”, also very common with Latin/Hispanic, North African, Africa-American, Asian, Indian, Middle Eastern, and Mediterranean descent.
What is the treatment of Melasma?
Melasma can be very slow to respond to treatment.
- Discontinue hormonal contraception.
- Always wear sun protection.
- Use products with tyrosinase inhibitors. Hydroquinone 2-4 % as cream or lotion.
- Azelaic acid cream or lotion (SAFE FOR PREGNANT)
- Kojic acid
- Ascorbic acid (Vitamin C)
- Methimazole (Antithyroid drug)
