HEALTH: NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS AND SKIN. JOSHUA FOX, M.D., a leading dermatologist, founder of ADVANCED DERMATOLOGY in New York and Long Island, and a spokesperson for the AMERICAN ACADEMY OF DERMATOLOGY: “Nutritional supplements may help your body, but hurt your skin. The key for consumers is to understand that as beneficial as some nutritional supplements can be, some may have negative side effects that show up on their skin. Consumers should read labels carefully and ask their doctors or dermatologists if they have questions about taking supplements. Remember that this area of cosmeceuticals is not as well studied as our pharmaceuticals, which are FDA-approved. Cosmeceutical manufacturers can make some outlandish claims intentionally that the government will usually not investigate.”
