As our body ages, our body’s ability to produce collagen weakens and deteriorates over time.
For the uninitiated, collagen gives skin its strength, structure and elasticity so that wrinkles don’t appear.
According to nutritionist and dermatologist, Dr. Nicholas Perricone, the biggest enemy of collagen is actually sugar in soft drinks.
Here’s why: When ingesting sugar and other refined high-glycemic foods can cause different parts of your body to experience inflammation. When inflammation occurs, it breaks down the collagen and elastin in the skin, causing wrinkles to occur and thus, cellulite too.
Plus, digested sugar permanently attaches itself onto collagen in your skin, weighing it down and worsen certain skin conditions.
