Diet and Skin

It is not news that your diet affects your appearance.  Yet recent research has honed in on how exactly certain vitamins and nutrients and anti-oxidants prevent inflammation and protect against disease.

This is a very active field of research, and there has never been a better time to visit a nutritionist for a personal profile on how your health and skin can be improved simply by paying attention to what you ingest.  Often, a few adjustments in dietary patterns can greatly improve the look and feel of the skin as well as the patient’s overall outlook on life and energy/vitality.

Patients with skin conditions such as acne, dry skin, or premature aging can all benefit from skin nutrition.  There has been a low-level though ongoing controversy about the advisability of some vitamins and supplements, and our NYDG nutritionist can bring you up to speed on this discussion and make recommendations according to your individual needs.
