What’s glycation and how to fight it?

The skin aging process is a major concern for many people. Men and women all want to maintain a youthful appearance and look for the best anti-aging treatments to recover skin tone and firmness.

Many known factors influence aging, like the menopause and a lack of sun protection. But a lesser known factor also accrues skin damage with time, making it lose firmness and definition, and that is: glycation.

What’s glycation and how does it affect skin?

Glycation is a physiological process caused by excess glucose in skin fibres. This excess causes an internal reaction in which sugar molecules adhere to the collagen and elastin proteins that keep it firm and supple, and form Advanced Glycation End products (AGE). In time, AGE makes collagen rigid, meaning that it loses its ability to keep skin firm and makes us look older.

This process begins when we are about 20 and gradually intensifies. External factors like diets that are high in sugar accelerate glycation and facilitate the creation of more AGEs. Which is why our face starts to fall and needs extra help to continue looking youthful.

How can we fight glycation?

Using AGE Contour will help fight glycation and skin aging  as it includes a powerful anti-glycation agent: carnosine.The glucose molecules responsible for skin rigidity adhere to the carnosine instead of to your collagen, which reduces the glycation process.

Carnosine helps maintain collagen and elastin function and recovers skin’s elasticity and firmness.
