Thu, Nov 01, 2018

Skin Health – with Omega-3!

Mon, Oct 22, 2018

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.
