Sugar is sweet but not when it comes to the health and look of the skin. Eating excess sugar is one of the worst things you can do to your skin. For starters sugar and foods with a high glycemic number (carbohydrates, fried foods and alcohol) trigger insulin which causes inflammation in the body. Inflammation is a culprit for acne-prone skin, eczema, rosacea and psoriasis. Sugar also breakdowns collagen: ie Glycation– when sugar binds to collagen and form AGES (advanced glycation end products ) this makes the collagen fibers hard and brittle which ultimately causes the skin to look old. Glycation equals loss of elasticity and collagen, which equals sagging, dull and aging skin.

Sugar weakens the immune system, dehydrates skin by pulling out moisture, creates a lackluster appearance and can cause breakouts and redness and dryness. So what should you do? Firstly, cut back on your sugar intake. Processed carbohydrates, alcohol and sugar-heavy foods should be limited.

If you’re prone to redness or rosacea and sugar is making this worse, try our Radical Difference serum. This concentrated rehydrating serum helps to rejuvenate the appearance of skin imperfections, illuminate dull skin and reduce the appearance of unwanted red areas to leave skin appearing glowing and vibrant.

If breakouts are your issue, try our Detox collection to get your skin in check and clear. Detox Facial Clarifying AHA Wash is a power-packed foaming cleanser specifically designed to address the appearance of problem skin, by reaching deep into pores and boosting out stubborn dirt and oils. Skin is left appearing smoother, feeling more refined and rejuvenated. Follow with Facial Detox, a purifying mask that works to draw out dirt and pore-clogging debris to reveal skin that looks clear and appears flawless. Facial Detox leaves skin looking even and appearing balanced, cleans blemish-prone skin and minimizes the appearance of pores and soothes and calms appearance.

Learning to balance your sugar intake will assure clean, clear and glowing skin in the future.

Unroasted shea butter extract

Unroasted shea butter extract is obtained through a sustainable process and is made by women in Burkina Faso villages. When manufactured without the traditional roasting phase, shea butter preserves its viminalol ester content and its slimming active properties.

Avocado seed extract

Avocado seeds are by-products of the Burkina Faso food industry. Avocado seed extract is rich in unsaponifiable matter known to activate connective tissue metabolism.


The avocado seed and unroasted shea butter extracts are entrapped in this multi-lamellar active clay, creating a powder-form ingredient that is easier to formulate. Bentonite provides biological benefits such as the regeneration of extra-cellular matrix proteins (ECM). The bentonite also provides a progressive-release delivery system.


Reduction of the appearance of cellulite

Cellulite is seen in 85% of women regardless of age, ethnic origin, body shape or weight. It is characterized by fat accumulation in adipocytes particularly on the thighs, buttocks, hips and stomach. Body3 ComplexTM differentiates itself from other slimming agents by its unique ability to stimulate lipolysis by acting on the ZAG pathway.

Enhancement of firmness

Without ECM fibers, adipocytes escape from the hypodermis and move toward the surface of the skin to form cellulite. Body3 ComplexTM is able to stimulate SKALP (SKin-derived AntiLeukoProteinase), an elastase inhibitor, to inhibit elastase activity, thereby limiting dermis degradation leading to a reduction of fat infiltration.

Reduction of the appearance of stretch marks

Studies have demonstrated that the silanols contained in bentonite are known to regenerate ECM proteins. The bentonite contained in Body3 ComplexTM reduces the color, length and overall appearance of stretch marks.

The skin is our largest organ, measuring roughly 22 square feet. Sure, many of us treat our facial skin daily… but that amounts to about a mere 5 percent of our total skin. Plus, facial skin is much thinner and so much more delicate than the skin on the body. On the other hand, body skin—which is bombarded with an onslaught of daily environmental aggressors—requires and deserves a different set of products to prevent signs of premature aging and promote overall skin health.

Face Your Body with Goldfaden MD

Goldfaden MD’s high-performance, three-piece Bodycare Collection is all about skin fitness. Keeping your skin healthy, fresh, and fit is paramount to our brand philosophy—and that includes the skin on your body.

This supercharged trio was developed to exfoliate, polish, refine, treat, and nourish to keep skin looking and feeling vibrant while helping to prevent signs of premature aging.

“Body care has become an afterthought, as many of us rush through it with endless options of no-name products or completely neglect it altogether. Otherwise, we wait it out and rely on time-consuming in-office procedures,” says Lisa Goldfaden, co-founder of Goldfaden MD. “My father, Dr. Gary Goldfaden, has been treating patients, full-body, for decades. As we continue to be at the forefront of product innovation, we felt it was crucial to create an easy-to-use body collection.”

Harnessing the brand’s proprietary “body complex,” these high-performance products were designed to target key concerns, such as:

  • sagging skin
  • uneven texture and tone
  • cellulite
  • sun damage
  • dehydration and dryness
  • dull, lifeless skin
  • scaly skin
  • loss of elasticity
  • loss of moisture

When used together, these products will help to firm, smooth, hydrate, moisturize, and revitalize skin from the neck down. After all, Goldfaden MD is a *firm believer* that skincare means caring for all your skin—not just the skin on your face.
