Many people waste hundreds and even thousands of dollars every year on fancy moisturizers and serums that promise younger-looking skin. Although moisturized skin is very important in preserving the elasticity of skin, you would be much better off redirecting your efforts to your diet. You basically have to preserve and heal your skin from the inside out.
Dermatologists recommend following a nutrient-rich diet to make sure that your skin is getting the vitamins and minerals it needs. Many people don't eat as well as they should and therefore could benefit greatly from taking daily supplements.
To promote youthful-looking skin, experts recommend taking a fish oil supplement. Fish oil, also known as Omega-3 is known for its ability to delay wrinkles and promote radiant skin. Our sister company, Doctors Scientific Organica, designed an Omega 3 supplement which has the same effects as fish oil but is actually derived straight from algae, making it vegan. This Plant Based Omega-3 supplement gives you the opportunity to reap all the benefits of fish oil without having to harm any fish or take in harmful pollutants like PCB's.
Fish Oil, as well as our Plant Based Omega-3, contain two crucial omega-3 fatty acids: Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). Dr. Doris Day, Dermatologist of Health.com says that DHA and EPA work together and improve the quality of skin by strengthening the cell membrane.
"DHA keeps the brain functioning properly. And EPA greatly benefits the skin by regulating oil production to boost hydration and prevent acne, and by delaying the skins aging process to stave off wrinkles," said Dr. Day. She also said that EPA, which is found in fish oil and our Plant Based Omega 3, has shown to protect skin from UV ray-induced damage and photoaging. "Because EPA is both an antioxidant and an anti-inflammatory agent, it can protect against sun damage and help repair it," Dr. Day added.
Aside from incorporating Omega-3 in your diet, Dr. Day recommends adding fatty fish into your diet to get more omega-3 fatty acids. "Most of us don't get enough omega-3s in our diet. Oily fish like herring, mackerel, salmon, anchovies, and tuna are the best sources so it's a good idea to take a supplement," she said.
