Nutrition is regarded a key pillar of any anti-ageing regime. Now a growing body of evidence supports the role of nutrients in skin health. The presentation will look at various nutrients that can combat the contributing factors to signs of ageing in skin from sun damage, free radicals and inflammation. Antioxidant vitamins, minerals and plant extracts have been shown to protect skin from UV radiation. Essential fatty acids combat dehydration of skin cells which exaggerate fine lines and wrinkles.
