A growing body of evidence has suggested that certain dietary changes can influence the skin health and appearance considerably. Hence, the term called “Nutricosmetics” —the use of nutrition or nutritional supplements for skin health and beauty—is gaining popularity and could be the next frontier, which promises improved skin health and beauty from the inside out.


Look Good,
Feel Good

Following are some of the conditions where the concept of nutricosmetics has been promising:

Promotes a clear complexion

Research studies conducted in Italy, Russia, and Korea, including those by Parodi et al. (2008) and Volkova et al. (2001), have explored the potential supportive role of probiotics, specifically from the Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium genera, in skin health. These studies observed that participants who included probiotics as part of their diet or in supplement form, in addition to standard care, reported observations that suggest a possible enhancement in skin condition. Further research is needed to fully understand the relationship between probiotics and skin health

Manage skin sensitivities

A study by Wickens et al. (2008) explored the impact of probiotic supplementation in pregnant women shortly before birth, and post-delivery either through breast-feeding or infant formula, for a period of at least six months. The study observed that in babies with a strong family history of skin sensitivities, there was a noted decrease in the incidence of skin discomfort up to the age of 2 years. These findings suggest a potential role for probiotics in supporting skin health.

Healthy skin

There is a growing interest in understanding how good bacteria in the gut may play a role in overall wellness, including skin health. Probiotics are thought to support the body’s natural processes in managing toxins and free radicals, which are factors associated with overall health. Regular consumption of probiotics is being studied for its potential to support these natural bodily functions. While research is ongoing, these findings contribute to a broader understanding of how maintaining a healthy gut may correlate with supporting skin health
