Beating Winter Skin with Omegas
If you’ve yet to book your after-season facial we’re here to let you know you’re slacking. Don’t cry Uncle when dehydration takes over your once porcelian skin and the harsh winter weather really go head to head.
When your moisturizer isn’t enough to keep your thirsty skin quenched, turn to omega 3s to give your skin back a glow you’ll be proud to show off when Spring shows its face.
The Good Fats
Believe it or not, some fat is actually good for you. Health professionals have been on the push to get us to eat more omega-3s loaded with healthy fats that support the look and feel of our skin in addition to supporting brain power. In addition to beauty and brains naturally, getting more omega-3s can help lower cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart disease and certain cancers.
It’s What’s Inside That Counts
Getting your daily dose of omega-3s in your diet can turn dry, cracking skin into a fortress of beauty, radiance and strength. These little miracle workers prevent collagen breakdown and fight against those dreadful free radicals that cause premature aging.
Where to Find Them
Your favorite seafoods are loaded with healthy omegas like salmon and shrimp. Nuts, walnuts, chia and flax seeds are also great ways to get your fill if you’re not a fan of the fish. You can also take a daily fish oil supplement (if you don’t mind the smelly burps) but check with your local health foods store to find brands that prove a quality, fresh and mercury-free product.
