Glycation is this year’s buzzword according to an article by Nicole Altavilla in American Spa Magazine.
Glycation is the process in which a sugar molecule (fructose or glucose) bonds to a protein or lipid molecule. This bond forms a HARMFUL new molecule called Advanced Glycation End Products or AGEs.
As AGEs accumulate they cause permanent damage to other surrounding proteins. The more sugar we ingest, the more AGEs develop. AGEs don’t just cause damage to the protein in your blood stream though, they also cause damage and inflammation of collagen and elastin in your skin.
Elliot Milstein, president and CEO of Biopelle, was quoted in the article stating, “Some new skincare products actually now include sugar in the list of ingredients. Nothing could be worse for the skin.”
That is why many skincare brands are jumping on the anti-sugar bandwagon and focusing on ingredients that help to reverse the damage caused by Glycation and AGEs. According to the American Spa Magazine article, some of these reversing ingredients include kombucha black tea ferment, omega-6 essential fatty acids, peptides, and tumeric.
Anti-glycation services are still hard to find on treatment menus as it is a growing area of research. SkinCatering’s esthetics expert, Kimberly, offers an all-natural White Willow Bark Facial treatment which is excellent in combating and reversing the effects of AGEs.

As someone who “opted out”‘ of a big wedding and eloped I do not have the experience of planning a wedding but, in my world of aesthetics I have seen more than my share of stressed out brides. I know the value of fresh, clear, glowing skin on and in the days before the wedding day.
These events leading up to your wedding bring more photos and entertaining than any other time in your life; The showers, Jack and Jill. and don’t forget the bachelorette party! The planning of your wedding should include time for facials so your skin can be in it’s best condition in the weeks before the wedding.
At Skin Catering we suggest a series of facials before the big events start to give the skin a healthy glow, clear up any imperfections and help make make up application smooth and easy, not to mention an hour to yourself just to be quiet.
We suggest starting six months before the big day with monthly facials. The week of the wedding we have a special facial for the bride that can be done any time during the week right up to the day of the wedding.
We also recommend putting Gift Certificates for facials and massage on your registry!
