Have acne? Fight back by indulging in omega-3s! Why? Omega-3s are a natural anti-inflammatory, so they help calm your breakouts! They also lower IGF-1 to help prevent clogged pores as well as reverse the effects of snacking on sugary, fatty foods!
To get your daily dose of omega-3s, eat fish (salmon, sardines and anchovies are best), tofu, soybeans, broccoli flaxseed, mustard seeds, walnuts and almonds.
Or, simply take omega-3 supplements! (Need a vegan option? Try organic flaxseed oil, also rich in omega-3.) It is important to use only a high quality product. Do not take more than 3 grams daily of omega-3 fatty acids from capsules without the supervision of a health care provider, due to an increased risk of bleeding.
Not only will your skin benefit from the essential fatty acids, many other benefits come from including omega-3s into your diet! Omega-3s can help with depression, rheumatoid arthritis, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and more!
Looking good on the outside and feeling good on the inside? That’s what we love!
