EFA’s Essential for Skin Health



We’ve seen a huge focus recently on internal health and the impact this has on skin health so what is one of the key things that can effectively help improve your skin? Essential Fatty Acids (EFA’s)!

EFA's such as omega-3’s and omega-6’s play a crucial role in skin function and appearance. How? Essential fatty acids are a key component for building healthy cell membranes however the body doesn’t produce EFA’s, they must be obtained through food sources. EFA’s work in a number of different ways and provide a range of benefits including building a stronger, better functioning skin through improving the skins natural oil barrier, reducing excess moisture loss and boosting the skins immune response! The perfect boost for skins suffering from acne, inflammation, sensitivity and ageing. What are some signs you might not be getting enough EFA’s in your diet? You might be suffering with dry, sensitive skin or stubborn blackheads that just won’t budge!

What do we recommend? A healthy balanced diet including nuts, seeds, fish and vegetable oils or speaking to your health care professional about available supplements. Sounds like a good excuse to drop in for a quick bite of Sushi next lunch break!
