We all know sugar is a health and fitness no-no. But it turns out your sugar consumption can have a direct affect on the health of your skin — and not in a good way.

The result? Wrinkles. Luckily, there are a few simple changes you can make in your diet and skin care routine to combat the negative effects of sugar. See what you can do to stop glycation now.
