Nutritional supplements supporting the structure and function of the skin are referred to as nutricosmetics. These nutricosmetics are consumed orally in both solid (pills) and liquid forms. Some of the major ingredients of nutricosmetics include vitamins (A, B6 and E), sterol esters, co-enzyme Q10, omega-3 fatty acids, lycopene, soy isoflavone proteins, beta-carotene probiotics, chondrotin and lutein. These ingredients act as anti-oxidants and function by controlling and cancelling the effects of free radicals (by products of biochemical reactions) and by providing anti-inflammatory protection to the skin against ultraviolet radiations.
