Abstract

The medical aesthetic industry's approach to ageing rarely takes into account the positive effect that changes in lifestyle and improved nutrition can make to patients' skin and wellbeing. Although patients are able to access a vast and attractive range of treatments which provide a quick fix for the client, in combination with a revised approach to nutrition the effects can be significant in reducing the progression of skin ageing. The free radical theory of ageing has been under examination since the 1950s, this article explains the theory behind oxidative stress along with a review of the impact of inflammation and glycation. The author takes a practical approach to counteracting the effects of skin aging through an improved nutritional regime and demonstrates that managing diet is not solely about weight loss.
