Foods that age you

High-glycemic carbs


Despite sounding super science-y, high-glycemic carbs are really simple to understand: they spike your blood sugar quickly, and they contribute to faster aging. The primary reason these carbs are a culprit is because your body's process of breaking down sugar actually damages collagen, the protein that keeps your skin smooth and firm. High-glycemic carbs can be found in extremely sweet and sugary foods, so pretty much anything that could be considered a dessert or special treat. Put down the cupcake and just walk away!
