Understanding the impact of food supplements on the skin

food supplements against spots

The appearance of hyperpigmentation spots, brown spots or black spots on the face or body is one of the first skin problems encountered by black, dark and mixed race skin.

Until now, to treat them, you had to choose between aesthetic medicine or the use of anti-spot cosmetic care. Today, a new type of care is now available on the market: food supplements that boost radiance. From the field of nutricosmetics, their promise is to treat your pigmentation spots from the inside.

How does it work? Are they really effective? Do they replace cosmetic care?

So many questions that arise instinctively in our thoughts in front of this new trend. In this article, we answer all these questions and more. We will propose a new anti-spot routine called "IN & OUT" combining both our new food supplement My Dietary Supplements Unifying & Radiant Complexion and our bestseller, awarded at the Victoires de la beauté 2020/2021: My Correcting Serum

Can food supplements treat skin problems?

The French National Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health Safety (ANSES) defines food supplements as "Diatary supplements whose purpose is to supplement the normal diet and which constitute a concentrated source of nutrients or other substances with a nutritional or physiological effect".

Thus, food supplements can also have a physiological effect on the skin. This is the promise of nutricosmetics. From the contraction of the words: nutrition and cosmetics, it includes all food supplements that have an action on the skin but also on the hair and nails.

Their objective is clear: they treat a skin problem from the inside by an in-depth action. In fact, they act directly on the hypodermis and the dermis, unlike cosmetic care products, which must limit their actions to the epidermis.

To achieve this, several steps are necessary:

  • The first, absorption: The ingestion of a food supplement is characterized by a dissolution of its galenic form (capsule, tablet etc) in order to let the active ingredients diffuse to the general blood circulation of the body. 
  • Distribution: These active ingredients will be able to circulate throughout your body thanks to blood transporters in order to reach their cutaneous targets
  • Action: Once the active ingredients have been fixed on the receptors (skin cells or fibers), they will be able to emit their anti-oxidant, regenerating, moisturizing or anti-spot actions, etc.

How do food supplements act on hyperpigmentation spots?

As a reminder, a hyperpigmentation spot is caused by a pigmentation disorder of the skin characterized by an excess of melanin (natural pigment of the skin). This overproduction of melanin can be caused by the sun's UV rays, hormones (pregnancy, contraception, stress) or by post-inflammatory reactions (pimples, eczema, repeated rubbing).

To eliminate hyperpigmentation spots, it is necessary to be able to block the overactivated melanocytes because it is these cells that are responsible for melanogenesis.

Through our expertise, we have come to understand that in order to act effectively on the brown spots of black, dark and mixed-race skins, two strategies are necessary:

  • Inhibit the action of the enzyme tyrosinase: Key enzyme of melanogenesis because it catalyzes the first two reactions of the formation of the two types of melanins (pheomelanins, clear pigment and eumelanins, brown pigments).
  • Inhibit the action of TYRP 1 (DHICA-oxidase) and TYRP 2 (dopachrome tautomerase): This action is essential in pigmented skin because these are the two enzymes specific to the synthesis of eumelanins. Moreover, they have the capacity to stabilize and work in synergy with tyrosinase. Thus, if tyrosinase is blocked, TYRP 1 and 2 are able to catalyze its reactions and consequently continue to produce the hyperpigmentation spot.

Therefore, we have developed a new anti-spot technology MEL'OYA CAP'S comprising various active ingredients including holly extract which is our latest patented active ingredient. Specially designed for My Dietary Supplements Unifying & Radiant Complexion, it guarantees spotless skin and a naturally radiant complexion thanks to its anti-melanogenesis, anti-tyrosinase and especially anti-tyrp 1 actions.

My Dietary supplement Unifying & Radiance of the complexion is thus able to fix itself on the overactivated melanocytes present on the basal layer, between the epidermis and the dermis and to inhibit the overproduction of melanin by blocking these key enzymes.

Thus, it effectively eliminates hyperpigmentation spots on the face and body but also prevents their appearance by blocking them before they are even visible.

Moreover, in order to obtain a complete care, we added to its formula:

  • Anti-oxidative active ingredients (Vitamin C, E and Manganese) to protect the skin from external aggressions
  • Antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and sebum regulating active ingredients to obtain a clean and blemish-free skin.
  • Vitamin D to prevent the deficiencies in this vitamin which have mainly the pigmented skins.
