Series 3: Super skin foods – Omega 6
Omega 3 is often touted as the skin EFA (Essential Fatty Acid) but the reality is that Omega 6 that is vital for the skin to produce ceramide 1 linoleate. Ceramide 1 linoleate is the most important ceramide but unfortunately its levels in the skin decrease in the winter and as we age. So a good solution to this is to boost our omega 6 intake during winter and as we get older. The Bestow Beauty Oil will do this for you if you take it everyday mixed into food.
EFA’s like omega 3 and 6 also reduce skin inflammation and ease dry skin problems like eczema and psoriasis that leave the skin more vulnerable to wrinkling and premature ageing.
