Natural Acne Treatment: Treat And Prevent Acne With Omega 3 Fish Oils
Get Rid Of Your Acne Naturally With Fish Oil Benefits
Do you suffer from acne? Have you tried everything to get rid of your acne? Are you willing to try something else?
It has long been said “you are what you eat”, but to date there has been no direct correlation of diet causing acne. There is, however, a new study that correlates omega-3 fish oil benefits with the treatment of acne. The sebaceous glands are microscopic glands in the skin of all mammals. These tiny glands produce a substance called “sebum”, which is produced to lubricate and waterproof the skin and hair. When sebum builds up and combines with dead skin cells, it clogs the pores, producing inflammation and infection, which we recognize as acne.
Hormonal imbalances, stress, and oxidative stress can cause the body to produce more sebum. Since omega 3s are a powerful antioxidant as well as a stress reliever, it makes sense that fish and fish oils could be a natural acne treatment.
Here’s a comprehensive article by David Gutierrez at “Natural News” that will fill you in on just what’s going on:
Abundant anecdotal evidence supports the idea that increasing the amount of omega-3 fatty acids in your diet could improve skin health and lead to a reduction in acne. In addition, correlational studies have shown that rates of acne are significantly lower among communities with a higher omega-3 consumption than among communities getting less of the essential fatty acid.
