Nutraceuticals and skin health: what are the key benefits and protective properties? Nutraceuticals are defined as a food, or part of a food, that provides medical or health benefits, including the prevention and/or treatment of a disease. Specific nutraceuticals have been proven beneficial in optimising skin health and promoting healthy skin ageing. This article discusses the evidence surrounding nutrients that are essential for skin collagen synthesis and skin cell renewal.

Abstract

Nutraceuticals are defined as a food, or part of a food, that provides medical or health benefits, including the prevention and/or treatment of a disease. Specific nutraceuticals have been proven beneficial in optimising skin health and promoting healthy skin ageing. This article discusses the evidence surrounding nutrients that are essential for skin collagen synthesis and skin cell renewal. It also investigates nutrients that have been proven capable of providing anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects in the skin, as well as protection from sun damage, and the promotion of skin hydration. In this paper, the author suggests key considerations when recommending nutraceuticals to aesthetic patients, including the importance of choosing well-researched nutrients, provided in bioavailable forms, at a dose proven to be effective. When combined with a healthy, balanced diet and the use of high-quality cosmeceuticals, nutraceuticals can help provide a global approach to optimising skin health and delaying signs of ageing.
