Essential fatty acids are critical for healthy skin....
In fact being deficiency of Omega 3 can lead to many of the skin conditions we see every day such as dry flaking skin, inflamed skin, acne and especially advanced signs of ageing.
Omega 3 and 6 are critical building blocks of the skin’s surface layers and play an important role in determining how smooth or firm your skin is.
They are also a powerful anti-inflammatory and are critical to skin healing inflammation Yet here is the problem , neither Omega 3 nor Omega 6 are produced naturally by the body. So as time goes on out stores of these critical essential fatty acids diminish and need to be replaced!
But most of the focus up until now has been increasing the Omega 3 and Omega 6 intake in your diet, which definitely has a positive impact on skin health! But when it comes to the skin, topically applying pure Omega 3 and Omega 6 directly to the skin can lead to a healthier complexion.
The top 5 reasons why Omega 3 and 6 lead to healthier skin:
Your skin heals quicker as Omega triggers the body’s natural response to inflammation, working to counterbalance inflammation in the body.
Eases redness and inflammation , by calming the skin against the impact signs of the external stressors.
Keeps your skin deeply hydrated! As Omega-3s are a crucial part of your skin’s lipid (fat) content, they maintain the proper working of the skin’s barrier function, which keeps moisture in the skin rather than allowing the skin to become dry, rough and flaky.
Leads to a more youthful appearance to the skin by fortifying cell membranes and reinforcing and smoothing skin’s surface.
- Protecting the skin from environmental damage. Research suggests that the fats in Omega essential Fatty acids protect skin cells against sun-induced inflammation and help control how the body responds to UV rays, thereby mitigating skin damage that can cause premature ageing.
With all these amazing benefits finding Omega 3 and 6 in your skincare hasn't been that easy until now.
