FAQs

Q: I’ve heard that certain sugars are good for you – even vital for your overall health. If that’s true, isn’t glycation unavoidable?

A: To a certain extent, glycation is something that both can’t and shouldn’t necessarily be avoided. Sugar – especially the good kind found in fruits, vegetables and whole grains – is actually vital to our health because of the role it plays in energy metabolism (it’s essentially fuel for both our cells and bodies). That said, there’s definitely an incentive to avoid the bad sugars such as white sugar, high-fructose corn syrup and the ones found in simple carbs like white bread and pasta, which studies have shown speed up the rate of glycation by 10 times compared with glucose, according to Elle. When you’re craving carbs, reach for whole grains and brown rice as healthier alternatives that offer less glucose.

Q: I haven’t been sleeping well, and it’s written all over my face. Are there any beauty products that can help me look well-rested?

A: There are definitely certain products and beauty tricks that can come to the rescue after a sleepless night. Refinery29 recommends freezing two spoons while you get ready in the morning. Once chilled, gently press them into your eye sockets (with the curved side facing your skin). Be sure to apply the spoons to your under-eyes to help reduce any puffing – and to avoid dreaded dark circles. A hydrating eye cream such as Korres Quercetin and Oak Antiageing and Antiwrinkle Eye Cream can help further reduce the appearance of dark circles and puffiness by firming and tightening your skin.

Q: I know exercising is important for the health of my skin, but I can’t seem to find the time – especially since it’s hard to turn down plans for the sake of a workout. Help!

A: In terms of finding the time to work out, it’s easier to stick to a workout schedule when you commit to it in advance. On Sunday night, take the time to plan out your workouts for the week. Morning workouts can be a good solution when your evenings are all booked up (just make sure you’re getting to bed a bit earlier to compensate). If you struggle with the follow-through, signing up for classes or making a plan to go with a friend can help hold you accountable – and provide a good excuse if anyone asks you to make plans.

Q: My lips get very chapped and painful during winter even though I use lip balm. What can I do to help my lips?

A: Chapped lips are very common during winter when your face is exposed to chilly winter air. According to WebMD, liberally applying beeswax or petroleum jelly will lock in hydration and help protect lips from the dry air. Try a product like RMS Beauty Lip Balm – Simply Vanilla, which has coconut oil and beeswax for deep hydration.
