Here at Tower Health we know how devastating acne can be, both physically and psychologically. And we understand that acne can affect us at any age, although 85% of 12 – 24 year olds suffer, those over 30 and even 40 years can also be affected. One in twenty adult women still have acne problems.

What causes skin problems?

Hormonal activity, such as puberty and the menstrual cycle, stress and infection, are all known to cause imbalance - leading to inflammation and the over production of the cells that line the sweat glands.

Diet plays a key part in skin health too, it’s well known that certain foods can be problematic for your waistline, but they can also cause negative conditions such as skin inflammation or acne—and even contribute to hormone imbalances that can lead to premature ageing and wrinkles.

Daily care plan

Tower Health’s Superintendent Pharmacist Eddie Dandy is fascinated by the positive effects of diet, and here, he’s combined this knowledge, plus best practice on skincare to create a highly effective daily plan.

This plan incorporates products from the Tower Health skincare ranges which have been selected for their proven efficacy and which, when combined with diet and a careful skin cleansing procedure, can lead to calmer, smoother, more healthy skin.

Green Smoothie

Ingredients

10k Steps and 8 glasses of water

Setting yourself a target of walking 10,000 steps a day can be a fun way of increasing the amount of physical activity you do, walking can help you build stamina, burn excess calories – around 400kcal and give you a healthier heart.

Taking frequent walks outside, particularly in the middle of the day when the sun is at its brightest, can boost your levels of Vitamin D and get you feeling better. Mid-day walking is also crucial in the winter, when the days are shorter and it can be harder to get the amount of time in the sun that you need.

Frequent walking can help you with sleeping both by helping you to fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer – so that helps with step 6! Staying hydrated helps to keep you feeling great and If your skin is not getting the sufficient amount of water, the lack of hydration will present itself by turning your skin dry, tight and flaky. Dry skin has less resilience and is more prone to wrinkling.

5-a-day fresh fruit and vegetables

A study published recently in the American Journal of Public Health, proved that eating more fruit and vegetables can change skin tone, lending it a healthier glow. It is all down to carotenoids, the orangey-red pigments found in fruits and vegetables.
Your 5 a day will also provide antioxidants which protect skin by limiting the production of free radicals, which can damage skin cells. Antioxidants in skin care products can do a lot for the health and appearance of your skin, including reducing the signs of ageing
