Let's talk Omega-3s:
Omega-3s are essential fatty-acids (EFAs) that the body cannot naturally produce. They are one of the essential and foundational building blocks for healthy skin production, and are therefore a vital ingredient of any skin treatment plan.
Why are Omega-3s important?
We know as skin therapists that EFA's are vital for body, hair and skin but not everyone knows why. It's pretty simple... Without healthy cells, we can't produce healthy skin. Our diet alone doesn't maintain the level of EFA's needed for optimal brain, heart and skin health. We therefore MUST supplement these levels.
What do we need Omega-3s for?
> Wound healing and immune support
> Reducing cellular inflammation
> To stabilize our emotions and mood
Specific skin benefits of Omega-3s
> Creates a healthy gut/skin axis
> Decreases break-outs & increases our pimple fighting ability
> Enhances skin resilience to UV rays
> Increases skin hydration and decreases water loss
> Reduces skin aging and redness
> Balances skin PH
In summary, we need a constant and high supply of Omega-3 to ensure our cells have the right building blocks for healthy skin making.
