Recently, it has been noticed that women’s desire is increasing not only to maintain a youthful appearance but also feel good and healthy. In society, it is relevant to stop the ageing process. One of the ways to strengthen the body and delay skin ageing is the use of food supplements. As the population ages, nutritional supplements are becoming more popular. In addition to traditional cosmetic and dermatological facial skin care, nutritional supplements have emerged as a new strategy to improve the condition and look of the skin.
The NoAGE nutritional supplement, which helps counteract the main processes underlying ageing, was selected for the study. The study aims to evaluate the impact of NoAGE on the changes in the indicators of moisture, elasticity and oxidative stress in women’s facial skin.
The results revealed that the nutritional supplement has an effect not only on changes in facial skin but also on blood parameters. The NoAGE nutritional supplement positively impacts the elasticity of and moisture in the facial skin. The first positive changes are observed after taking the supplement for 5 weeks. When assessing the dependence of the improvement of the indicators on time, it has been found that as the duration of the use of the supplement increases, the indicators gradually improve. NoAGE nutritional supplement has a positive impact on the body and slows down the inflammatory processes, reduces the levels of malondialdehyde – marker of oxidative stress – and has an antioxidant effect. It effectively reduces inflammatory processes in the skin, especially erythema.
