Carbohydrates And Your Skin

Carbohydrates And Your Skin

Carbohydrates are sugars that break down inside the body to create glucose, which is our primary source of energy.

Eating foods rich in carbs is great, but unfortunately, we often eat way too many of them!

Dr, Jessica Wu, the Hollywood dermatologist, said this. “In one study, volunteers who ate a high carb diet experienced a 20% increase in their levels of androgens (“male” hormones that stimulate oil glands and cause acne) after just one week; volunteers who ate a diet high in protein had balanced blood sugar and lower levels of androgens in a week.”

Also, carbohydrates interact with proteins in your skin. This stimulates enzymes that break down collagen and elastin, making skin thinner and more prone to wrinkles.

Balance carbohydrates with protein and fresh vegetables. Avoid the refined stuff and stick with whole grains for glowing, beautiful skin!
