There are a few things that EVERY skin expert and nutritionist agree on. The one ingredient that guarantees glowing skin, healthy hair and strong nails. You know what that is?  Essential Omega-3 fatty acids. And since our bodies can’t synthesise it, the best source to get it from? Wild Salmon, Flaxseeds and Walnuts.
So, what’s so miraculous about Omega 3 fatty acids? It’s an integral part of our skin’s lipid membrane, and an absence makes skin permeable and weak, prone to wrinkles.  Omega-3 fatty acids are anti-inflammatory (especially against UV radiation) and fabulous skin soothers for common skin problems such as psoriasis, acne and atopic dermatitis. In fact, an Omega-3 deficiency is often linked to dry, itchy skin woes. Now onto its hair benefits. Omega-3 smoothens dry, brittle hair, seals split ends and alleviates symptoms such as dandruff.  Even better, Omega-3 concentrations are highest in the brain and nervous system, and even help combat depression. Here’s to a brainier, more beautiful you!
Now onto the walnut infused beauty buys to get your skin and hair fix of Omega 3.
