Nutraceuticals, a combination of the worlds nutrition and pharmaceuticals, are supplements that have been developed to provide protection against aging, with some claiming to reduct wrinkles by up to 30 per cent. However, make sure you pick skin supplements with the right ingredients, such as collagen, ceramides and high strength antioxidants, to be confident they will do what they promise. My favourites are:
– Age Defender by ScioTech, which contains vitamin C and amino acids to fight free radicals and encourage the body’s natural production of collagen and Omega 3 essential fatty acids.
-Photo Resist, also by ScioTech, which is a supplement packed with anti-inflammatory properties to help deal with immediate skin damage – take twice a day before, during and after sun exposure.
– Dove Spa Strength Within, which contains lycopene, Omega 3 and vitamins C and E.
