Huh? Fish oils? Why do I need those? Believe it or not people aren't aware of or feel they need to take fish oils regularly. Not to throw another "thing you should do" at you but Omega 3's which are found in fish oils are incredibly important to your daily health and of course, to your skin care routine.
Among the many things that fish oils provide are essential fatty acids. These are indeed essential. They benefit the cardiovascular system, brain and cognitive function, eye health, pregnancy and lactation, joint mobility, healthy hair, supports your immune system, and yes, finally your skin!!
Additionlly most of our diets don't provide us with the beneficial amounts that we need. The American diet specifically has the lowest intake of Omega 3's of any developed country. We need but can't produce the amounts of Omega 3's, 6's, 9's that we need to get all those great benefits. In case you are wondering what it's like to not get the proper amount of Omega-3's, here's a quick list of the possible signs of an
- Poor memory
- Immune weakness
- Dry Skin, eczema, hair loss
- Mood swings or depression
- Poor circulation
- Heart problems
- Reproductive problems
Sure this could also just be a side effect of age (insert eye roll here) however it's always best to consult with a Physcian to properly diagnose this type of deficiency.
