Eating sweets may age that skin prematurely

Filed under:

If you're into candy and sugar (you know, with the Halloween holiday just having ended), be prepared to become a wrinkly prune soon. Well, not really -- but maybe in the future some time.

According to recent research, the foods that turn into glucose in the body may also make you look older due to aging your skin prematurely. We're not just talking refined sugar -- but anything that converts to glucose in the body.

Before you go off to research, I'm not saying to quit eating anything that converts to glucose. But if you know about elastin and collagen, this research may warrant further checking into.
