The skin is the largest organ of the body. It acts as a barrier, protecting us from harm, and lasts a lifetime – so it is important to take care of it.
However, skin problems are common complaint: It is estimated that 60% of people in the UK do suffer, or have suffered, with skin disease at some point in their lifetime. Skin problems can be a mild annoyance for some people, or a life-altering condition for others – potentially having severe implications on quality of life.
Lifestyle and nutrition both have a significant role in play in skin health, and nutrients can provide additional support.
