Skin feels ‘much better’ after Clear Skin Programme, reveals Viridian Nutrition survey

Two thirds of volunteers who tested the Clear Skin Programme reported seeing improvements in their skin condition after two months, according to an in-depth survey by ethical vitamin company Viridian Nutrition.

Developed to support optimal skin health, the Clear Skin Programme devised by experts at Viridian Nutrition incorporates recipes from The Clear Skin Cookbook[1] by TV chef Dale Pinnock, together with two nutritional supplements - Clear Skin Complex capsules and Organic Clear Skin Omega Oil.


Last summer, the supplement company invited volunteers to give their feedback on its Clear Skin Programme. The 2017[2] survey confirmed the results from a similar survey in 2013[3], and reported that 76% of participants described their skin condition to be ‘better’ or ‘much better’ after following the Clear Skin Programme for 60 days.



The background

Skin conditions can affect both men and women; the British Skin Foundation estimates 60% of the population is affected at some point in their life by a skin condition[4]. This can include acne, eczema, premature ageing or skin tone issues. Depending on the severity - the conditions can be difficult to manage physically and emotionally.  The American Academy of Dermatology also published a study[5] which shows that late-onset or adult-onset acne is becoming increasingly common in women in their 20s to 50s.


However there is increasing evidence suggesting that skin health and appearance could be improved with modest dietary changes and specific nutritional supplements. Viridian Nutrition decided to carry out its own survey into the Clear Skin Programme.


Experts at Viridian Nutrition monitored volunteers’ progress by asking participants to submit before and after photos and filling in questionnaires on their skin condition over the duration of the project. The following feedback was given: 

“I feel a lot happier about my skin now, it is noticeably clearer, less inflamed and even softer.  I feel more confident in leaving the house and being in public with little to no make up on.  I would definitely recommend the supplements to people who also suffer with skin problems.  After trying many medications, it felt amazing and refreshing to use something that is natural and organic, knowing that I wasn't putting any nasty chemicals into my body.”



“My breakouts are less frequent and less severe since using the Clear Skin Programme.  I am happier with the appearance of my skin.  Over time I hope the old scarring will reduce to leave me with a clearer complexion.”


“Although I am not sure that the redness has lessened, my skin feels a lot smoother than at the start of the Clear Skin programme.  I did suffer from enlarged pores which I am sure have diminished.”


“The fact that other people are commenting on how great my skin looks says it all! Even after the first two weeks of this programme I noticed improvements with less spots and more moisture in my skin.  My confidence has massively improved and I am now comfortable wearing less make-up too. I also feel more empowered having educated myself on skin nutrients and health thanks to Viridian Nutrition, and will continue with the changes I've made.  An added benefit is my hair also feels stronger, softer and shinier!”  

“I’m much happier now with my skin.  It has become much smoother.  I feel more confident and I feel like I don’t have to wear make-up all the time any more.  I have tried almost all of the recipes from the book and I really liked them.  It is also good to know some information about what happens inside your skin.  The book inspired me to cut down on eating sugary things and I started to eat more healthily.”


“I am really happy with how my skin is, I am literally wearing no foundation to work (will wear on night out).  Some of my friends have commented on how good my skin is looking.  I still have a couple of spots, but this is nothing in comparison to how my skin was before and I certainly would not have gone out without any make up on before taking part in the programme.  I feel happy and confident.”


“I noticed a real shift in my skin throughout the course of the two months.  I found it initially worsened quite considerably, but then cleared on my face.  However, this seems to fluctuate significantly with my hormones, and hasn't cleared quite as much as I would have hoped.  The underlying skin on my face feels smoother and improved - but the spots have not yet completely gone.  I found the meals interesting too, and will definitely keep making some of them!”


“My skin feels a little smoother and I have definitely noticed a more even skin tone since using the Viridian Clear Skin Complex.  The red blotches on my face have cleared.  Unfortunately, I am just at the end of my period and have 2 rather large spots on my chin (an area I usually always get spots on), apart from that my face is clear.”



Both Clear Skin Programme surveys 2013 and 2017 gained successful results and reported that 78% and 76% of the participants respectively found their skin condition to be ‘better’ or ‘much better’.  


Furthermore, 78% and 73% stated they were ‘happy’ or ‘happier’ overall with their skin appearance.

Jenny Carson, Viridian Nutrition’s lead analyst for the Clear Skin Project commented:
“This series of case reports demonstrates that simple advice and daily supplementation may result in important improvements to common but troublesome skin complaints such as acne, blemishes and overall skin appearance.


“Both the 2017 and 2013 surveys, show that by following the Clear Skin Programme, using the combination of selected nutritional supplements and a nutritional oil and adopting recipes into daily life can improve skin condition within two months.”
