Nutraceuticals are essential for maintaining healthy skin. Nutraceuticals like as probiotics, phenolics, and vitamins are among the nutraceuticals that may help prevent and manage dermatologic diseases. Probiotics, vitamin E, and green tea catechins may provide the most comprehensive set of skin-protective mechanisms, with probiotics having the broadest therapeutic application. Recent study has focused on the effects of probiotics on atopic dermatitis and opportunistic infections of skin burns. This contains a p = 0.02 improvement in Scoring Atopic Dermatitis index scores when intact Lactobacillus rhamnosus Goldin and Gorbach (LGG) was used instead of heat inactivated LGG or a placebo. Lactobacillus reuteri, whether given before or after a Staphylococcus aureus infection, can improve epidermal keratinocyte survival, p 0.01. It's possible that phenolics haven't been thoroughly researched for atopic dermatitis or skin burns. Phenolics, on the other hand, play a role in photoprotection. The phenolic rutin enhances UV B radiation filter reactive oxygen species scavenging by 75%, p 0.002, and peak wavelength absorption by 10%, p 0.001. While oral and topical probiotics offer unexplored potential in the treatment of atopic dermatitis and the prevention of skin infections, phenolics will become more widely employed in photoprotection. Nutraceuticals will become increasingly important for good skin care as bioavailability, dose, and formulation are improved.
