UPDATE: 20th February 2014
I took the Skin Omega and Collagen Support capsules daily and as directed, for 3 months. The only other supplement I took was one Menopace Original tablet a day.
The first thing I noticed and I’ve mentioned it below in the comments section, is that my skin became very white, clear, but so white that I actually purchased a facial tan, something I only ever normally use in the summer.
It wasn’t that unhealthy, ‘winter white’ shade that people get from being inside during the colder months, but a sort of translucent whiteness, which I still have. Also, this must be the first winter that I’ve not suffered from dry, sensitive skin despite the best efforts of the incessant wind and rain.
My skin is super soft especially on my cheeks, but actually, as fabulous as that of course is, the biggest, unexpected change is the condition of my hair.
I wrote on here a couple of months back that my hair was freaking out on me (hormones, incoming menopause? who knows) and behaving very badly; a bit lank, yet dry and unable to hold a style. All of this can of course be fixed with a decent body building mousse, oils, serum, rollers etc – ‘smoke and mirrors’ as I like to say and yes, all those things do work, but the underlying problem is always there.
My hair now is shiny pre gunk, in a nutshell, it’s just got its life back. It has also grown so fast (and this is winter time when hair growth traditionally slows down) that I’ve had to live with very obvious roots over Christmas – and this is highlighted hair I’m talking about here, roots aren’t supposed to be on display after a mere two weeks!
So, for the huge improvement in my hair alone, I’m buying these for myself.
Best prices I can find (so far) online:
Feel Unique Advanced Nutrition Programme Skin Omegas 3 and 6 £22.00

I am taking part in a three-month trial on behalf of the International Institute for Anti-Ageing. I will be reviewing Advanced Nutrition Programme’s SKIN Omegas and SKIN Collagen Support vitamin supplements.
ADVANCED NUTRITION PROGRAMME
Advanced Nutrition Programme formulas and recommendations are based on thirty years of experience and research with the criteria of optimising health and minimising risk. The Advanced Nutrition Programme Skin and Well-being supplements are designed to provide the optimum amounts of key vitamins, minerals and other vital elements required for good skin and vibrant health.
Benefits of using Advanced Nutrition Programme Skin Omegas
- Maintains healthy skin and supports skin integrity.
- Contains protective antioxidant tocopherols.
- Purifies skin
The most common sources of omega 3 and omega 6 polyunsaturated fatty acids are oily fish and seeds, but many of us don’t eat enough of these foods.
Supplementing your diet with Skin Omegas may help to ensure you get enough GLA (gamma linolenic acid), an omega 6 fatty acid which helps maintain the healthy appearance of skin.
Advanced Nutrition Programme Skin Omegas provides support for the skin integrity and health by a combination of omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids. One of the richest sources of GLA is borage oil, this fish oil provides EPA, DHA, DPA. DPA is a highly flexible essential fatty acid that can convert to either EPA or DHA.
Our fish oil supplier PureMax, is a member of a global organisation which sets the highest standards for removing environmental toxins and their products are sustainably sourced.
SKIN COLLAGEN SUPPORT
The production and protection of collagen is vital for sustaining the integrity of connective tissues. Advanced Nutrition Programmes’ Skin Collagen Support Capsules are a synergistic complex of vitamins and plant extracts that provide the building blocks for collagen.
Vitamins A, C and D all contribute to collagen synthesis. Vitamin C, plus hesperidin, rutin and grapeseed extract are powerful antioxidants which help protect collagen. All these aid in sustaining the integrity of connective tissues.
As we get older, our skin can lose elasticity. This is true of all skin types, but particularly for fairer tones because they have less melanin protection from UV rays.
Skin Collagen Support contains vitamins A which contributes to the maintenance of normal healthy skin and vitamin C for its role in collagen formation. Our nutrition experts have enriched the formula with carefully selected plant extracts.
