Reduce intake of refined sugars and high-glycemic foods, favoring antioxidants-rich fruits and vegetables instead.

  • Use Antioxidants: Incorporate skincare products with vitamins C and E, green tea, and retinol to fight free radicals and oxidative stress.

  • Apply Amino Acids and Peptides: These ingredients help repair skin and boost collagen production, offsetting AGEs effects.

  • Protect from the Sun: Use broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30+ to prevent UV-induced skin aging and the worsening of AGEs effects.

  • Look for Specific Ingredients: Carnosine, aminoguanidine, and blueberry extract can interfere with glycation, providing additional defense.

  • Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle: Regular exercise, sufficient hydration, and adequate sleep contribute to overall skin health and resilience against AGEs.
