10 Benefits of Botox: and 4 mistakes that could age your face


In this month's newsletter, we not only celebrate the amazing benefits of Botox but also shed light on potential mistakes that may age your face and how you can avoid them.

The Role of Diet and Skin Aging

Question: Who doesn't love sweets and carbohydrates?

Answer: Your skin!

Yes, we all love our cookies, pasta or soft, chewy white bread. However, they all turn to sugar in the body and this can affect your complexion.

Refined carbohydrates, like bread and pasta, are broken down into glucose (a form of sugar) during digestion. 

Studies show that sugar molecules can attach themselves to collagen fibers, which can affect the elasticity of your skin.

This process is called glycation.

Glycation occurs when sugar molecules in the bloodstream bind to proteins, including collagen, forming advanced glycation end products (AGEs).

This process is thought to contribute to the aging and deterioration of skin elasticity.

What can you do? Make some dietary changes.

Try to swap out simple carbohydrates and replace it with healthier alternatives. Even slight changes can not only help your skin, but your overall health as well.

 Here are some simple diet change suggestions for healthy skin.
