Nutrition is considered to be the most important single factor in maintaining good skin health, a consumer survey has found.

In a poll of 480 UK and French consumers, 43% said a healthy diet mattered the most when it came to the health of their skin. This was followed by avoiding too much sun exposure (22%), living a stress-free life (18%) and exercise (15%).

When choosing a skincare product, 64% of consumers cited affordability as the biggest influence. However, they also expressed a strong preference for natural ingredients.

‘In the midst of a revolution’

“The global skincare market is in the midst of a revolution. There has been a major shift from appearance to health, and from outside to inside,”​ said Zev Ziegler, vice president of brand and marketing at Lycored.

“Because of these changing perceptions, the ingestible skincare category has become increasingly important.”
