The Doctors: What Your Face Says About Your Diet
What does your face say about your diet? Dermatologist Dr Sonia Batra joined the show, using Dr Travis Stork’s head shots to show what “sugar face” looks like. Eating too much sugar can form harmful molecules that bind to protein and target collagen, which leads to wrinkles and sagging skin. It can also lead to acne. Also, as many of us age, we lose the the enzyme that allows us to break down the lactose sugar in milk, which can trigger inflammation. It can cause redness and sagging of the skin. Hormones in dairy products can further the negative effects.
Lastly, was what can happen when you drink too much alcohol. It can cause dilated blood vessels, making you look flushed. It’s also dehydrating which can accentuate wrinkles and make you look tired.
