Beauty Supplements Do Little to Improve Your Skin

If you take dietary supplements with the idea that they will help your skin look better, British researchers say that you are just wasting your money.

British Nutrition Foundation (BNF) scientists looked at beauty supplements containing ingredients such as fish oil, green tea and pomegranate extracts, collagen and CoQ10. Products on the market containing these ingredients claim to be good for your skin. While these supplements may have some benefits, they found little evidence that they will make your skin look better.

“While there is a body of research on the science of skin aging, evidence for the benefits of nutraceuticals to skin appearance is currently not strong enough to draw firm conclusions,” BNF nutrition science manager Ayela Spiro said in a statement.

BNF says the best way to healthy skin is a nutritious diet, not smoking, limited alcohol intake and using sunscreen when you will be out in the sun for long periods.
