Skin Supplements

Dr Nicky looks at aesthetic health on a holistic level. She sees the patient as a whole not just a line or wrinkle.

The skin is in a constant state of renewal and responds to nutrition and protection from both inside and outside. High quality medical grade skin care is important to nourish and fortify the skin but what the blood brings to the skin in terms of vitamins and minerals is also important. Dr Nicky is an advocate of a two-tiered, inside-out approach to maintaining long-term skin health. She recommends nutritional supplements to support healthy skin function along with topical treatments.

Over the last 50 years the western diet has massively changed. Diets now have higher proportions of processed foods which are high in sugar and hydrogenated fats. These are poor cellular fuels. There is good evidence that diet supplementation with hydrolysed collagen, along with other vitamins, supports wound healing and collagen synthesis in the skin. Nutritional support is important to reduce cellular ageing caused by exposure to chemicals, pollution and toxins.

Dr Nicky Naylor  uses a carefully curated range of skin supplement products and offers a bespoke plan for your skin needs. She is an accredited Skinaid ® practitioner and authorised distributor of Zooki® products.

Frequently Asked Questions

I have a healthy diet. Is that not enough?

Supplements cannot be used in the place of food in your pursuit of skin health, but they can help. The reason Dr Nicky suggests the addition of supplements is because we live such fast-paced lives and experience such high amounts of stress, it’s hard to know the levels of nutrition we’re truly getting from our food. We overcook our food, we microwave it, we fry it, we horse it in without chewing thoroughly (affecting the way the nutrients are absorbed) and all of these things can deplete the value of the food. So supplements, are a helping hand, delivering higher levels of nutrients than we’d get from food alone. They are not an alternative but should be taken in addition to a healthy diet.

Can I just not take a multi-vitamin?

By taking specific nutritional skin supplements, the correct concentrations of vitamins, minerals and other important ingredients can be titrated and their delivery optimised to ensure best gut absorption.

Which ingredients should I look for?

Dr Naylor will discuss your skin's nutritional needs in depth but notably, important vitamins for skin health are vitamin C, vitamin A and vitamin E. A diet rich in vitamin C has been shown to prevent skin ageing. Vitamin A deficiency leads to dry scaling skin and vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant and protects from skin ageing.

What else shall I ask?

Dr Nicky Naylor recommends that you refrain from vigorous exercise , sauna or steam for 24 hours after treatment to ensure optimal results. She advises to avoid direct massage of the treated areas for 24 hours and to refrain from having any eyebrow treatments or facials for 2 weeks after your appointment.
