Skin on face gone suddenly thin

I'm 36 next week and I've noticed that my complexion has suddenly aged. My skin, especially on my cheek bones / below the eyes is looking wrinkly, blotched and a bit "thin".

I drink plenty of water (2-3 litres per day) but practically live on sugar.

I cleanse, tone, use serum and moisturise twice a day.

Things have been pretty stressful for me recently, but the last few days I've been sleeping properly again.

Too much acid toner?

Ri don't use acid toner, just supermarket's cheapest.

Do you use suncream?

No, I use Boots protect and perfect and just assumed that had good spf blush.

Do I need to use suncream and if so, where does that slot in?

I think that's what retinoids help with.

Sugar is bad though, if you manage to cut down it will help you a lot.

How is sugar bad for my skin?

Sugar makes your skin age faster, it damages the tissues.

Right, ok, I think I may need to get myself on to the Princess thread sad
