If winter leaves your skin dry, dull and pale, spring is the time for renewal! Making small changes to your diet and lifestyle now will rejuvenate your skin and give you a healthy glow again.
Nutritional therapist, Ian Marber says: ‘Bright skin comes from within, and there’s a lot of nutrients involved in achieving it.
‘Some are particularly important, such as vitamin C – it plays a variety of roles in skin health, from being involved in collagen production, to being an antioxidant, helping to protect cells from oxidative stress.’
Here is a selection of other key nutritional ingredients that come together to form a dream group for healthy skin. ‘Weave these foods into your day by sprinkling them on cereal, chopping them up to go with your lunch, and packing them in the snack tub,’ Ian says.

Gemma Bosworth, 37, is committed to improving her skin by 2022. Here’s how she is…
“I get breakouts all the time,” says pharmacy technician Gemma, “So Solgar’s pledge is to go makeup-free at least three times a week. It’s not as easy as I thought it would be, especially at the place. working like I do feel pretty pale and self-conscious, but my skin is whiter and I’m learning to appreciate the skin I have, instead of having to cover it up all the time.”

You should also cut back on things that your skin doesn’t benefit from. “Consuming too much refined sugar can decrease the activity of two proteins, elastin and collagen, both of which help the skin retain its firmness and flexibility,” says Ian.
‘Excess alcohol is also a potential problem for the skin as it encourages dehydration and therefore dehydration, which can manifest as dry, uneven skin. Excessive alcohol consumption can also be a factor in inflammation, breakouts, and uneven skin tone. ‘
Reducing your intake of refined sugars and alcohol is also great for your waistline and overall health, so it’s win-win!
