Acne is an issue most commonly suffered by teenagers but it is a condition that can affect anyone at any age.

“We need to reject this old view as a lack of hygiene or not cleaning the skin properly because people are looking after their skin and it still happens.”

It can be due to a hormonal change during pregnancy or post-pregnancy. But it can also just suddenly occur to those in their 30’s and 40’s. “I’m a professional I need to go to work and my skin is breaking out, I feel awful.” Naturopath Melanie Jaye, joined Mike to share that Omega 3 is proven to have a positive effect on acne:

“There’s an ongoing debate about whether your nutrition and diet effects your skin and I believe they do go hand in hand. Because we now know things like Fish Oil (and there are studies to back that up), omega 3 actually helps reduce inflammation in the body and therefore have a positive effect on Acne.”
