On your quest for healthy skin, there are many avenues to explore and take action, but one easy way to start is to eliminate sugar from your diet.

When we consume sugar, the body processes it by converting it into glucose, which acts as fuel when it enters our bloodstream. And when it gets there – bam! Instant rush road! At the same time, sugar provides us with renewable energy, it also attaches itself to collagen in the skin, making the skin stiff and inflexible. With poor elasticity, the skin can’t bounce back and facial movement lines become more obvious. In short, sugar can accelerate the signs of aging.

That’s not all. Sugar creates inflammation in our bodies, which can affect our joints and/or increase our susceptibility to disease. The inflammation can also manifest itself as rosacea, acne, rash, or increased pore size.

Just as sugar can make us pop up quickly, a lack of sugar can make us “crash”. When our blood stream is devoid of sugar, it begins to crave the energy it once had. The vicious cycle of road crashes and crashes thus begins. Keep this bad habit and your body can become need a donut or cake to start our morning, or need soda that afternoon to make it through the day. Experts say that by balancing and maintaining blood sugar levels, your body will eventually stop craving these skin-altering sugars. In fact, once you kick the soda, we bet if you pick up a can, you won’t be halfway there. Your body won’t get used to the sugar and won’t need it either.

Eliminating sugar isn’t just about cutting out chocolate, soda, and other desserts. High-glycemic carbohydrates, such as pasta, bread, white rice, oatmeal, and potatoes, are also quickly broken down in our bodies and cause a rapid rise in sugar levels. Even honey, melon, and raisins have a high glycemic index (GI). However, staying away from these foods is easier said than done. Here are some tips and tricks we used in Sally B’s kitchen:

  • Eat well-balanced meals, low in simple carbohydrates, high in green vegetables, and moderate amounts of high-quality protein. Keeping yourself fueled (and hydrated!) will keep your blood sugar from plummeting and ensure that you don’t continue to binge on “I need sugar.”
  • Say no to sugar, artificial sweeteners, honey and agave in your hot drinks. Instead, try organic stevia, xylitol, erythritol, or figs. They are not thought to affect blood sugar the way some artificial sweeteners can. There have been some great advances in natural sweeteners of late. One of our favorites is the Swerve sweetener brand that uses Erythritol.
  • Swap soda, sweetened tea, Gatorade, and other sugary juices for carbonated water with a variable flavor. Fresh lemons, limes or raspberries are great additions.
  • Drink Green Smoothie regularly. It creates natural energy, all day, and eliminates afternoon slumps. EASYDrinking this smoothie regularly will help your skin start to glow.
  • Instead of white pasta and bread, switch to brown rice and whole grains. Or better yet, try broccoli. You will be impressed by its great taste and its versatility.
  • If you need to eat a lot of sugar, choose something that is a good source of antioxidants or other vitamins like sweet potatoes or dark chocolate.
