As everyone ages, their skin changes over time.

However, the speed varies depending on the person.

Therefore, this time, in order to maintain youthful and beautiful skin, we will introduce ``oxidation'' and ``saccharification,'' which are the causes of aging signs.

*"Aging care" in this article refers to "care appropriate to one's age."

■What are “oxidation” and “saccharification”?

When researching beauty topics such as "aging care," you often come across the terms "oxidation" and "saccharification," but what exactly are they referring to?

First, let's take a look at each of them again.

<What is oxidation>

Oxidation is a state where unnecessary oxygen binds to the body and skin, causing "rust" in the body.The effects of oxidation on the skin include "wrinkles," "stains," "inflammation," and "dryness." This is one of the phenomena that you should avoid as much as possible.

The main cause of oxidation is active oxygen, but active oxygen itself has the function of removing viruses and pathogens that have entered the body, so it is essential for maintaining health. It is an existence.

However, if it becomes an "excessive amount", active oxygen will accumulate in the body and affect the skin.

<What is saccharification>

Glycation is a phenomenon that occurs when excess sugar in the body combines with proteins and fats, and the effects of glycation on the skin include yellowing, wrinkles, and age spots.

Furthermore, when collagen and elastin in the dermis become glycated, the elasticity and elasticity of the skin weakens, causing sagging.

When glycation occurs in the skin, AGEs (Advanced Glycation End Products) are formed, which not only affect the skin but also the body, such as diabetes, cataracts, and arteriosclerosis.

If oxidation is compared to "rust", saccharification is called "scorching".

The causes of “oxidation” and “saccharification” and the measures you can take from today!

"Oxidation" and "saccharification" respectively create skin problems that the aging generation wants to avoid. We will tell you the causes and countermeasures to keep your skin vibrant and beautiful.

<Oxidation care>

It is important to avoid generating large amounts of active oxygen, which causes skin oxidation.

The cause of creating active oxygen is

・Ultraviolet light

・Irregular lifestyle habits

・Unbalanced diet


・Excessive alcohol intake

・Excessive exercise

・Excessive stress

etc. can be mentioned. In particular, the damage caused by UV rays is a major cause of oxidation of the skin, so make sure to take good care of your skin from UV rays on a daily basis.

In addition, irregular lifestyle habits, diet, excessive alcohol use, and exercise can also increase active oxygen in the body, so it is important to take care of them on a daily basis.

As a measure against active oxygen in the body, we should also take an approach from the inside. We will introduce some recommended ingredients, so please take a look.

Oxidation measures

Recommended nutrients

Main ingredients

Vitamins A, C, E

・Vitamin A…Eggs, eel, liver, carrots, spinach, etc.

・Vitamin C…broccoli, green pepper, persimmon, strawberry, etc.

・Vitamin E…almonds, sesame, pumpkin, etc.


Coffee, green tea, black tea, cocoa, soybeans, buckwheat, ginger, etc.

Omega-3 unsaturated fatty acids

Perilla oil, flaxseed oil, walnuts, mackerel, saury, etc.

In addition to your daily care, please try oxidation care by incorporating the above ingredients.

<Glycation care>

As a countermeasure against glycation, it is important to prevent excess sugar and fat from accumulating in the body.

The reason why sugar and fat tend to accumulate is

・Dietary diet mainly consisting of carbohydrates

・I like sweets and snacks

・Drink sweet drinks such as juice often


・Excessive stress

- Short sleep and lack of exercise

And so on. Sugar itself is a necessary nutrient for the body to function, so cutting it down too much is not a good idea.

Be conscious of ``not taking in too much sugar and fat'' and ``consuming them in moderation,'' and be conscious of ``living a life that doesn't accumulate too much sugar.''

In addition to reviewing your eating habits, exercise is essential for consuming sugar, and sleep is essential for eliminating unnecessary sugar.

Also, sugar stimulates the sympathetic nervous system and creates an excited state, so in order to get better quality sleep, it is recommended to refrain from eating sugar before going to bed.

We will also introduce other foods that moderate the absorption of sugar, so please try incorporating them.

Anti-saccharification measures

Main ingredients

vitamin C

Broccoli, green pepper, persimmon, strawberry, lemon, kiwi, etc.


Green tea, oolong tea, black tea, etc.

fermented food

Yogurt, natto, kimchi, miso, etc.


Liver, tuna, hijiki, natto, komatsuna, etc.

<Author's comment>

Oxidation and glycation accelerate skin aging.

These are largely due to accumulation from daily life, and it is very important to be aware of them on a daily basis.

When it comes to skin care, be careful not to cause irritation, and protect your skin from UV rays and friction. In terms of daily life, try to avoid irregular lifestyles and unbalanced diets, and start doing what you can.

Both phenomena are connected not only to the health of your skin but also to your physical health, so please take this opportunity to reconsider from the inside out and live each day with a healthy and beautiful body and skin.
