Compléments alimentaires en dermo-cosmétologie

Abstract : Since a few years, we have noticed an increase of dietary supplements consumption, which represent a new approach in the field of dermocosmetology to answer to the request of the consumer concerned about his well-being and health. Just like the whole organism, skin depends on an adequate intake of micronutrients to fulfill its physiological functions. Regarding the composition of the skin, it seems obvious that micronutrition could play a role in the integrity and health of the skin. A newly developed dietary supplements group is nutricosmetics. The term nutricosmetic (nutrition + cosmetic) refers to dietary supplements targeting the skin structures functions and. Firstly, we will recall the structure and the physiology of the skin. Secondly, we will study dietary supplements by recalling their regulation on the one hand, and on the other hand by detailing their different active components applied to dermo-cosmetology (vitamins, trace elements, amino acids, fatty acids...).We will analyze their mode of action, their allegations, and the studies conducted to prove the efficiency of these products. Thirdly, we will discuss the pharmacists’advice of dietary supplements in the following indications : photoprotection, skin aging, dry skin, oily skin/ skin imperfections, and beauty of hair and nails. The pharmacist plays an essential role in the advice of dietary supplements and their good use (dosage, precautions of use).
