Normal healthy skin has a nice epidermis with a smooth cornified, or outer, layer that acts as a good barrier to water and environmental injury. Skin color and tone is even and unblemished.

Components such as collagen (which provides skin firmness), elastin (which supplies skin elasticity and rebound) and glycosaminoglycans or GAGs (which keep the skin hydrated) are all abundant.

It is interesting to note that under a microscope a biopsy of a wrinkle exhibits no telltale signs that reveal it to be a wrinkle. So what causes the skin to look wrinkled? It is probably a multifactorial process of intrinsic aging and extrinsic aging.

It’s no secret that hitting the dessert table too often does bad things to your waistline, but indulging in sugary treats can also damage the skin, says Alexiades-Armenakas. “Sugar molecules bind to tissues by a process called glycation,” she says.

When that happens, harmful new molecules are created in your bloodstream, and these saboteurs damage collagen and elastin, the fibers responsible for keeping your skin taut and firm.

So stay off the sugar!
