A new year goes hand-in-hand with one or more New Year’s resolutions! As a skin therapist, mine inevitably revolve around the use of quality skin care products. And striving to maintain a healthy lifestyle: exercising several times a week, enjoying a healthy, balanced diet and consuming a selection of carefully chosen supplements. In this blog, I explain why such supplements are so important for me personally.
Despite my ‘healthy lifestyle’, I regularly experience bowel problems. Like many men and women these days, I suffer from IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). This condition compelled me to explore an even healthier diet and to try and figure out what works best for me. Which is why I stopped eating meat and fish one and a half years ago. This step has already reaped positive results; my bowels are significantly calmer. However, it didn’t solve my problem entirely, so I continued on my quest.
A few months ago, ANP (Advanced Nutrition Program) launched a new range of products, including ANP Skin Youth Biome.
“A unique formula, specially developed for the intestines, with the added benefit of beautiful, healthy and youthful-looking skin. The capsules contain 5 billion active cultures from 4 scientifically researched bacterial strains that support the immunity of our intestines and, consequently, our skin. Healthy intestines help to promote healthy skin. ANP Skin Youth Biome additionally contains Vitamin C which actively encourages the formation of collagen.”
Not surprisingly, these supplements quickly grabbed my attention. Could they really be the solution to my enduring bowel problem? Healthy intestines, with the added benefit of healthy skin? I’d tried so many different things, I was obviously slightly sceptical. However, I was fortunate enough to be given an opportunity to test the product. My bowels remained upset during the first few days of starting the supplements, but I began noticing a considerable improvement after only one week. I’ve been using the product for almost three months now; my skin and hair are visibly more radiant and my stomach is much calmer. This improvement made me realise just how important it is to take care of yourself and your body.
That’s why my New Year’s Resolution for 2020 is to enjoy a healthy, varied diet supplemented with all of the nutrients that my body needs. Whilst my own particular focus is on healthy bowels, ANP boasts a comprehensive range of supplements that can help to improve each and every skin condition. So, when it comes to making and keeping our largest organ healthy, I advise all Van Lennep Clinic customers to also consider the ‘inside’ throughout the coming year.
