While beauty is only skin deep, and wrinkle decrease skin cream can cost a fortune, or be a cheap cosmetic you wouldn't want to use as an anti-ageing skin care, omega 3 fatty acids are a healthy beauty treatment. As many people in medical studies, or on their own, are adding ultra purified fish oil to their diet to prevent or treat high blood pressure, stroke, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, and many other debilitating conditions, they are finding that their hair, skin and nails are improving too.
What a delightful bonus. Ads about cosmetics bombard us hourly on television, and in fashion magazines. There are so many wrinkle decrease blogs, wrinkle decrease bloggers and wrinkle decrease chats going on, that it is mind boggling.
It comes as good news that the omega 3 fatty acids are beneficial to skin health, because they prevent or sooth inflammation. Wrinkles in our skin are caused by inflammation and lack of good oils. A hand in hand situation.
So here is a natural remedy, in good food and available as a healthy food supplement.
How to wrinkle decrease even better, is to understand the balance of omega 6 oils and omega 3 oils. Omega 6 oils, found in grain-fed animal fats, and most vegetable oils, (therefore most salad dressings) and many nuts, is not bad for us. However, we must limit the ingestion of omega 6 oils, because they promote an inflammatory response in the body.
Inflammatory responses can cause high blood pressure, artery disease, heart disease, gum disease, arthritis, diabetes, and oh my goodness that list can go on and on......so we're talking too much of a good thing.
Omega 3 fatty acids, are opposite in biochemical affect. They decrease or prevent inflammation in the body. Ideally if you were to eat a certain number of grams of omega 6 oil, say from a peanut butter sandwich, you would want to eat the same amount of omega 3 fatty acids, or oils, in the same day.
This does not take a huge lifestyle change. Tuna, salmon, mackerel, sardines and anchovies are a good source of omega 3 oils. Their ingestion should be limited because of the pollutants they contain, particularly mercury. Some doctors say restrict these to three times a week, some say two times is enough. If you are pregnant or nursing, ask your doctor for his latest updated recommendation.
But, you can supplement your intake of omega 3 oils with ultra purified fish oil. It is inexpensive (remember, good quality fresh wild caught salmon is about $12.00 a pound, or much more if flown to you) and easy to get. If you prefer shopping online, it's even easier to get.
Another source of omega 3 oils might be some fresh chopped walnuts in your salad instead of croutons. Avocado, walnut, flaxseed and olive oil are all healthy omega 3 oils that you can make your salad dressings from.
This is a big subject and there is lots more to say about it. How to wrinkle decrease the best way, is to eat healthy omega 3 oils that improve many conditions in your body, and give you healthy skin as well.
