Eat Your Way to Healthy Skin!
The secret to a healthy glow goes beyond skin deep. Essential fatty acids, or EFAs, actually control a large number of cellular processes in the body that directly relate to the health of your skin, hair and nails.
Because the body cannot manufacture essential fatty acids, supplementing your diet with fish oil, borage oil and evening primrose oil might be what you need for a healthier you – both inside and out. The skin is the largest organ in the human body and can often be the first visual indicator of an omega-3 essential fatty acid deficiency. Omega-3 Fish Oil has a variety of beauty benefits.
Omega-3s in fish oil have been shown to:
• Keep the skin hydrated, thus helping to prevent dry skin and other skin conditions
• Help soothe scaly, rough skin by reducing unnecessary inflammation
• Improve blood flow and support the elasticity of red blood cells, thereby providing more oxygen to nourish the skin
• Encourage the production of strong collagen and elastin fibres in the dermis, making skin look younger by reducing wrinkling and sagging
GLA is a beneficial omega-6 fatty acid that occurs naturally in evening primrose and borage oils. It is known to help with dry skin, reduce hair loss and provide support for eczema, psoriasis and atopic dermatitis.
