Easter. It’s not just about bonnets and frills. It’s also about candy. And what holiday isn’t? Actually, only one holiday outdoes Easter in candy consumption. Ninety million chocolate Easter bunnies are produced annually. The largest chocolate bunny every produced tipped the scales at 6,635 pounds, according to the Guinness Book of World Records. That’s a lot of chocolate!   And if chocolate isn’t your thing, you can always feast on the 300 million Marshmallow Peeps sold each Easter season.

A few jellybeans here, an Easter egg or two or three there: What’s the harm, anyway? ‘Tis the season to ignore the consequences that sugar can unleash on your skin—and those consequences can be considerable. All of that extra sugar can cause the perfect trifecta of skin woes: glycation, inflammation and oxidative stress.  These accelerate skin aging.
