Omega Fatty Acids & Skincare:
A Match Made in Heaven
Omega fatty acids, also known as essential fatty acids, play a heroic role in maintaining the health of skin cells. These vital components are integral to the structure of every cell in the body, including those in the skin. They play a crucial role in rebuilding the hydrolipidic film that covers the surface of the skin, which is responsible for maintaining moisture levels, elasticity, and barrier functions that protect the skin from environmental aggressors
Unlike other fatty acids, essential fatty acids cannot be produced by the body, and their retention decreases as we age. It is imperative to incorporate them into our routines to replenish and support the skin’s natural functions.
These fatty acids are building blocks for skin cells, strengthening and smoothing skin’s texture, making it particularly beneficial for the for those with dry skin or compromised lipid barriers.
