About this book

Nutrition and skin health are often linked in the mind of the consumer. The last few years have produced excellent nutritional studies addressing the effects of nutrients on skin. This book aims to summarize these studies and discuss the relationship between certain nutrients and skin health in the hope of encouraging and enabling food and skin care professionals to create products that promote skin health.

Nutrition and Skin is an important resource for experts and newcomers alike in the fields of food science, nutrition, and dermatology. It will help the food scientist to design functional foods for better skin health, the nutritionist to analyze the questions raised by existing research and studies, and the dermatologist and researcher to better understand the impact of nutrients on skin in order to design better skin care products and nutritional supplements.
