Skincare the Natural Way Can be a Bitter Pill to Swallow

EVERYONE knows that beautiful skin is the product of a sensible beauty routine, healthy eating and exercise. Does anyone pay attention though? Much more palatable is the short cut to a peachy-smooth complexion promised by the pills and potions on the market which claim to improve skin.

But do they work? Nutritionist Dr Jane Wilde says there is nothing wrong with taking supplements to boost your skin.

"It is essential to have a balance in the diet and ensure you have enough Omega-3 and Omega-6 - they are the essential fatly acids, fish oils and linolenic acids. Zinc and magnesium are also important.

"Most vitamins, minerals and trace elements can be obtained as food but because we don't eat as well as we should, people are bereft of the essentials arid they turn to supplements. Short courses of antioxidants and minerals are good but don't take them ad infinitum."

PROMISES, PROMISES ... the potions:
