 Wrinkle Therapy: Sugar-Coated Tablet
Researchers say that a sugar-coated tablet has been created which can bring a dramatic slowdown in ageing of the skin.

Bringing together nutritional and dermatological science, the pill has been developed by the confectionery giant Nestlé and L'Oreal.

They have used a compound found in tomatoes to promote the regeneration of new skin cells and protect old ones from damage, reports The Times.

The sweet red pill, called Innéov Fermeté, belongs to a rapidly developing class of products called cosmeceuticals, beauty treatments that are swallowed and work from within.

Patricia Manissier, head of research and development at Innéov, the L'Oréal/Nestlé joint venture producing the new drug, said: "We have done a lot of research which shows this product works and now we're looking for ways of improving it. We know that good nutrition can prevent the skin from ageing and that there are clear links between certain nutrients and skin health."
