Skin problems such as acne, eczema and psoriasis can be helped by filling your body with the right nutrition. Our experts put forward their favourite skin saviours
“The supergreens spirulina and chlorella are fantastic system cleansers,” says Rick Hay, anti-ageing food and fitness nutritionist(www.rickhay.co.uk). “They help to promote healthy digestion and also help to alkalise the system.

The alkalising properties of these greens means that they help to reduce inflammation – both internally and externally on the skin.
