Winter Effects on Skin
November 2014, Vitabiotics and New Country Healthcare conducted two consecutive CME accredited seminars in Abu Dhabi and Dubai. It was an honor to have Prof. Philippe Humbert as a visiting lecturer. Prof. Humbert is the Head of Department of Dermatology at the University Hospital of Besancon, France. In addition, Prof. Humbert heads one of the world’s leading centers of excellence in dermatology and cosmetic in France known as the Centre for Study and Research on Integument (CERT).
Prof. Humbert presented findings from their latest research which shows that Micronutrient supplementation can help prevent the ageing effects of winter on the skin. This leading publication represents a novel finding that oral supplementation with Perfectil Platinum (Vitabiotics) in a double blinded placebo controlled study protects against the negative changes (e.g. roughness) in the skin caused by winter. The lectures were attended by leading Dermatologists and Pharmacists in the UAE and were chaired by Dr. Hassan Al Husseini (Head of Abu Dhabi Dermatology Club) and Dr. Anwar Al Hammadi (Head of the Dermatology Department, Dubai Health Authority) in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, respectively.
