Glycation

When sugar molecules attach onto healthy proteins and fats in the body like collagen or elastin to form AGEs this process is known as Glycation. These new molecules weaken the skin’s support system and make it more susceptible to ageing.

When Glycation occurs the skin can look dull, start to sag and feel rough plus the onset of wrinkles is accelerated so that the skin ages much quicker.
