It is rightly said, “The best kept beauty secrets may not be found at the cosmetic counter or drug store.”

Hence, it is not necessarily important to rush to the supermarkets or cosmetic shops everytime you want to get beauty.

But, what if we were to tell you that when it comes to healthy hair and skin, you should also be examining the supermarket and supplement passageways? Wondering… but true!

Oily fish, nuts and leafy green vegetables are high in fatty acids and protein. Both of these are important nutrients that are needed to help stimulate the production of healthy skin.

Olive oil, foods rich in omega-3s and avocados top the list as “good” fats that you should be incorporating into your daily diets. The foods you allow to enter into our body are as vital as the products you put on it.

You all have heard of the benefits around omega-3s such heart health, eye health and joint health but what‘s less known is the role these essential fatty acids play on hair and skin. The truth is our bodies are not capable of producing eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) hence we need all these essential fatty acids through diet and supplementation.

1. Healthy, Shiny, Lustrous Hair: Wouldn’t you love if your hair looked like the hair shown in TV commercials? Shiny, silky hair is typically what most women strive for but aren’t sure how to achieve these beautiful locks. For healthy and shiny hair, proper nutrition is needed. And Omega-3 fatty acids nourish your hair follicles for stronger, shinier hair. These are a natural way to nurture your hair from roots.

2. Healthy-Looking, Hydrated Skin: Who would like that dry, dead skin? Omega-3s offer a healthy skin inflammatory response that is greatly a positive aspect for your clearer skin. This is just one reason, among many, why we love Omega-3 and the amazing benefits it has on our skin. Fatty acids can act as natural moisturizers that help revitalize dry skin from the inside out.

If you like to reap the gains of fish oil, you can take them in supplement form to add more fish oil in your diet by eating more oily fish. Eating two 6-ounce servings of fish per week is recommended by the American Heart Association.

Choose fish that are high in omega-3 fatty acids, such as some of those given below:

• Sardines
• Anchovies
• Albacore tuna
• Wild caught Salmon

Remember, don’t intake the larger species of fish, such as shark, tilefish, swordfish and king mackerel as these varieties are very high in mercury which is not good. Try to eat mostly those fish that are lower in mercury, like those listed above, and eat a wide variety of fish to make sure you’re getting proper nutrition.
