#OBTip Worrying about wrinkles? Looking to combat those first signs of ageing Recipe

#OBTip Worrying about wrinkles? Looking to combat those first signs of ageing and keep your skin happy and healthy? Try eating less sugar! ⠀
-⠀
We all know sugary treats can cause you to wake up with a cheeky spot of two but did you know that long term sugar consumption is a major cause of wrinkles? Collagen is the protein in our skin and tissue matrix that holds things together, so when it’s in good supply, you’ll get fewer wrinkles, have better joint health and heal faster from bumps and bruises. However, when it meets its nemesis, sugar, it firms up and loses its elastic properties = your skin starts to sag and wrinkle! ⠀

Ok, so maybe no more cake! But fruit is ok surely? ⠀
-⠀
Fruits are a fabulous source of nutrients however some are much higher in sugars than others so it’s worth watching out that your daily smoothie isn’t causing those fine lines! Opt for low sugar fruits such as berries, lemons, dragon fruit, pears, plums and nectarines. ⠀

Top tips to combat sugar cravings and get glowing skin⠀
Sweet cravings could be caused by vitamin and mineral deficiencies. Take 1-2 tsp @OrganicBurst Spirulina daily – its rich in essential vitamins such as iron, B12 and magnesium. ⠀
Eat ½ an avocado when you have a sugar craving to give your body some healthy fats that are far more satisfying and give you longer lasting energy as well as glowing skin⠀
Top up those vitamin C levels with some lemon water – Vitamin C is vital for producing collagen in your body – the anti-wrinkle protein! ⠀
