Latley i have been craving something thirst quenching and sweet.
I have always avoided soft drinks for their high sugar content and negative effects on firstly my Seb Derm and then my Rosacea. And i have always believed that even though the "Zero Sugar" soft drinks have no sugar in them, they are still equivently as sweet so they would have the same negative effects on me.
Yesterday, after a hot day onsite, i gave in and cracked open a cold one at my desk. To say the least it was very refreshing and tasted oh sooo good. However as i took the last few sips, a rush of anxt overtook me as i anticipated the effects of this drink on my face the next day.
To my suprise, the next morning my Seb Derm and Rosacea were not much worse than usual.
Now im not sure if this can be attribute to the fact that i hadn't consumed this sort of sugar for a while and if i had another one things may be alot worse.
Upon further investigation i found out that the sweetener which replaces the sugar in these drinks is ~300x sweeter than sugar which is why so little of it needs to be used. But then i would have thought it's effects would be greater than the sugar by the same ratio.
Whats everyone else's experience on this subject?
