I decided to study nutrition at CNM after experiencing the impact diet changes had on my little girl’s health. She was very poorly between the age of one and three, with frequent trips to the hospital due to recurrent chest infections and asthma-like symptoms. She was prescribed corticosteroids, antibiotics, and a variety of inhalers, but I was frustrated at simply managing my daughter’s symptoms with medication and not actually seeing any progress in her health. We received no nutritional or lifestyle advice.
Whilst expensive creams often promise to deliver miraculous results, there really is no better way to target optimal skin health than by working from the inside. It’s important to remember that our largest body organ, the skin, needs a constant supply of essential nutrients in exactly the same way as other organs do. Omega-3s are incorporated into cell membranes in the the top layer of skin (the epidermis), forming a protective coat around them, helping to stop moisture being lost, and giving skin a healthy appearance. But Omega 3 fish oils also work deeper in the dermis (skin’s lower layer) to control inflammation. So whether you have acne or eczema, want to find a natural psoriasis treatment or are simply looking for a plumper, firmer complexion, you should consider adding extra omega-3s into your daily plan.

Evaporation of water on the skin leads to dry skin conditions like eczema. Skin hydration is a key component of their overall management. Lotions which have a high water and low oil content can worsen dry skin via evaporation and trigger a flare up of the disease. However, thick creams like Whelehans Moisturising Cream which have a low water content, or ointments (eg petroleum jelly, emulsifying ointment), which have zero water content, will better protect against dry skin.
