Glycation: The leading cause of Skin Aging + POLA B.A. Launch

Glycation: The leading cause of Skin Aging + POLA B.A. Launch

What is Glycation?

Glycation is a chemical reaction occurred when there’s a presence of excess glucose (sugar) in skin fibers. Scientific research shows that glycation is one of the main causes of skin ageing.


How does Glycation occur?

Glycation occurs when the excess glucose triggers an internal reaction in which sugar molecules hold onto the collagen and elastin proteins under our skin, which normally help keep skin firm and supple. This forms the destructive molecules called Advanced Glycation End Products (AGEs).

As we age, the AGEs molecules accumulate inside the skin and will end up destroying the support cushion of the skin formed by elastin and collagen. This means our skin loses its firming ability, and ultimately make us look older than we really are.


How does Glycation effect the appearance of the skin

As the AGE molecules destroy the collagen and elastin in our skin, it will:

  • Promote Wrinkles and fine lines to form
  • Reduces suppleness of the skin
  • Reduces skin firmness which results in saggy skin
  • Reduce skin radiance, skin may appear dull and tired


How to prevent glycation?

While we are not able to fully stop Glycation from happening, research has shown that it can be slowed down with good dietary choices and using the right skincare products.


  • Diet
Avoid or reduce white sugar and High-fructose corn syrup: Choose complex carbs such as wholegrain bread and brown rice, as they produce less glucose and has low Glycaemic Index
Consume Green tea to help stimulates collagen synthesis and it has been proven to inhibit with the glycation process.
  • Skincare
Choose a good quality anti-aging cream that contains AGEs inhibitors. This two powerful ingredients key has been proven to help fight against glycation:
Ume Extract: Ume is a type of Japanese plum that has been used as food and medicine in Southeast Asia. It contains twice as many proteins, minerals, and fats than other fruits. It has a powerful anti-glycation effect, which interferes the formation of new AGEs whist accelerating the decomposition of existing ones.
Vitamin C or Vitamin C Derivative: Widely known for its benefits on the skin, such as increasing collagen synthesis, skin firming, brightens the skin, and has powerful anti-oxidising properties and more.
