Glycation happens when sugar attaches to a protein or lipid, causing A.G.E’s or Advanced Glycation End Units. Two most popular sugars are glucose and fructose. A.G.E.’s accumulate in the dermis layer of our skin and destroy collagen and elastin by wrapping around them until they become ridged and break. When our collagen and elastin break down, our skin loses suppleness and starts to sag, causing wrinkles to form.
