Around 4 million people in the UK and 30 million people in the USA have been affected by diabetes with as young as 7 year old child among them.
Diabetes can be caused by the body's inability to produce insulin (or enough insulin) to regulate blood sugar levels. In comparison to healthy people who don't have diabetes, diabetics are more prone to organ failures and accelerated ageing.
High Blood Sugar Levels Trigger AGEs
High Blood Sugar Levels trigger inflammation in the body. Although this is part of the natural defense mechanism, inflammation that becomes chronic has detrimental effects to our health. In fact, chronic inflammation has been associated with various diseases including diabetes, cancers, heart diseases and accelerated ageing.
Sugar has the ability to attach to protein in the skin that damages the collagen, elastin and other skin components. Known as glycation, this process triggers the formation of Advanced Glycation End Products (AGEs). AGEs cause damages to various tissues including those of blood vessels that have negative effects on the distribution of nutrition all over the body.
Insulin, the hormone that regulates blood sugar levels, helps prevent the formation of AGEs in our body. Due to lack of insulin or failure to respond to insulin, diabetics are more prone to premature ageing including accelerated skin ageing.
If your skin shows prominent signs of ageing, apply Bio-Collagen Serum underneath your moisturiser. This award-winning anti-ageing serum has been formulated with Resveratrol, a powerful antioxidant with much stronger anti-ageing properties than vitamin C, E and A.

How to Slow Down Skin Ageing
It is significantly important to maintain healthy levels of collagen, elastin and proteins in the skin. Skin on your face is particularly vulnerable to signs of ageing and damage due to the constant exposure to various factors such as climate, pollution and pathogens.
Beside healthy diet and lifestyle (and a proper medical treatment for those who live with diabetes), topical skincare products can visibly slow down the skin ageing process. Niacinamide, one of the key ingredients in Bio-Collagen Ageless Cream, has been proven in a scientific study to boost the production of collagen, elastin and proteins in the skin by up to 100%.
