The First Step Towards Sugar Detox

Reduce Your Sugar Intake — The Whole Happy Life

Why You Need To Reduce Sugar Intake

  1. Quitting sugar can reduce acne: Acne is mostly hormonal, assuming you cleanse and exfoliate your face properly. But when we eat refined white sugar, it spikes our insulin levels which also raises the inflammation in the body. The inflammation is then translated to our skin and leads to all forms of acne.
  2. Quitting sugar may slow the aging process: Most people who get rid of refined white sugars within weeks see a difference in the appearance of their skin. Without getting too science-y, sugar reacts with certain proteins in our body in a negative way. When we remove it, it can make our collagen and elastin work they way it’s supposed to — keeping our skin tight, and resilient.
  3. Quitting sugar can also help psoriasis: This goes back to the inflammation and insulin levels. Sugar has actually been identified as a cause of psoriasis because of its inflammatory effects on our gut. Flare-ups are likely to become less severe and less frequent as you cut sugar from your diet.
