All about: Advanced Nutrition Programme Skin Youth Biome

They say what you put on your skin is only half the story, and ingestible beauty products are huge right now. Part of that is due to the endless flogging of them on Instagram by Women In Stretchy Pants, and part is due to the fact that for some people, they really do work. When it comes to healthy skin, what you put inside the body really can be as important as what you apply topically.
“Great skincare starts from within” is one of the main catchphrases used by UK-based Advanced Nutrition Programme, who are the creators of an amazing professional-only nutritional supplements range that is thankfully available in New Zealand. I was lucky enough to meet Lorraine Perretta, a nutritional consultant at the International Institute for Anti-Ageing and brand manager for the Advanced Nutrition Programme range of supplements, a couple of years ago, and damn – she was inspiring. Over breakfast she shared a few of her insights with myself and several other beauty editors, as well as giving us all more than a few good reasons why a quality  - emphasis on the word quality here – can make a wealth of difference when it comes to the kind of result you want from your skin.
The Advanced Nutrition Programme is a cutting edge nutritional system that has been designed to support a topical skincare regimen recommended by professionals. The premium range of nutraceuticals is designed to provide optimum daily amounts of vitamins, minerals and other vital elements to support a healthy lifestyle and to help maintain a glowing complexion. 
Problems like dryness, excess oil, congested skin and the signs of premature ageing may benefit from targeted supplements from their Skin range, and client feedback proves it gets results. Research from the British Journal of Nutrition in 2006 concluded that taking oral supplements has many benefits over topical application. It supports the importance of supplements that feed skin over the entire body, in an easily absorbable form and which can nourish even the deeper layers of the skin. In an industry that focuses so much attention on treating skin topically, it’s easy to forget that cells are made deep within the skin where creams never reach. Beginning a skincare regime by feeding the body with the necessary nutrients to make perfectly formed cells is the foundation to a flawless complexion.
Which brings me to their newest release – a probiotic skincare supplement called Skin Youth Biome. Amazingly, it’s formulated with an incredible five billion active cultures of four scientifically studied strains of bacteria, and is quite the marvel. These four unique strains have been found to provide antioxidant protection, support immunity and anti-ageing. In addition, Skin Youth Biome has added Vitamin C to support collagen formation. This combination of live cultures and vitamin C not only helps support and maintain a normal healthy intestinal flora, but also works in synergy to give you a “smoother, more youthful looking” complexion.  The beneficial bacteria counteract the intrinsic and extrinsic causes of ageing by reducing inflammation and fighting free radicals. 
In addition, the good stuff comes packaged using advanced microencapsulation technology to ensure that the bacteria survive stomach acid and easily pass through to the intestine, where they are needed. The formula is also gluten and yeast free, contains no artificial colours and flavourings and does not require refrigeration, unlike many of its peers. I’ve been using them now for a few weeks and the difference is clear – and I’m obsessed. 
Advanced Nutrition Programme Skin Youth Biome is available right now, RRP $115 for 60 vegetable capsules. It comes highly recommended!
