ADD OMEGA 3S TO YOUR DIET FOR HEALTHY, YOUTHFUL SKIN

brockville-omega-3s-v2

Making mindful decisions about the food you eat can lead to a slew of health benefits, including improving the condition of your skin. Younger, smoother skin is as obtainable as adding Omega 3 fatty acids in your daily diet; moreover, they’ve been proven to reduce inflammation from conditions such as acne and rosacea. Often referred to simply as Omega 3s, these “good fats” are essential for keeping your cell membranes healthy. Your cell membranes act as a barrier between your cells and toxins, allow nutrients and waste to pass in and out, and retain moisture. Eat high levels of Omegas 3s and watch your skin transform into a softer, more supple state, while filling in fine lines and wrinkles.

FOODS RICH IN OMEGA 3S

Because high levels of Omega 3s are shown to facilitate the development of younger-looking, smoother skin and diminish inflammatory skin conditions, it might be time for you to incorporate new foods into your diet. Salmon and other cold water fatty fish are perhaps the most recognized source for Omega 3s, but there are plenty of other foods rich in this good fat; certain grains, nuts, oils, and green vegetables also contain Omega 3s. Eat your way to healthier skin by including the following foods in your diet:

  • Seafood such as salmon, tuna, and oysters
  • Dairy products including eggs, milk, and yogurt
  • Nuts and grains like flaxseed, oatmeal, and pumpkin seeds
  • Leafy green veggies such as spinach, parsley, and Brussels sprouts
  • Oils including flaxseed, soybean, and walnut

DO MORE TO MAINTAIN A HEALTHY GLOW

The food you eat nourishes you inside and out, and with the skin being the largest organ of your body, it’s important to feed it what it needs to achieve optimum health. We encourage you to get your recommended daily dose of Omega 3s, but if you are still not seeing the results you would like, Dr. Steyn offers a variety of non-surgical procedures such as Venus Viva and skin peels with natural looking results.
