Beauty influencers show it: healthy, radiant skin makes us look attractive, ideally without make-up and, if possible, with a natural glow. But how do you get this look? Diet plays a crucial role and omega-3 fatty acids are a key component.

Why are OMEGA-3 fatty acids important for the skin?

Our skin aging and health depend on many factors. One of these important pieces of the puzzle is omega-3 fatty acids. They can help strengthen and protect your skin from the inside out in the lower layers.

Anti-inflammatory effect and strengthening of cell membranes

Omega-3 fatty acids have anti-inflammatory properties. Silent inflammation in the skin caused by chronic stress, smoking and pollution can lead to increased collagen breakdown and accelerate skin aging. By reducing inflammation, omega-3 fatty acids can indirectly help stave off collagen breakdown.

In addition, omega-3 fatty acids help to strengthen cell membranes, which in turn results in a better supply of nutrients to the skin cells in the deeper layers.

Which foods are rich in Omega-3?

Fatty fish such as salmon, herring and mackerel are rich in omega-3. Algae and plant sources such as flaxseeds, walnuts and legumes also provide a healthy dose of omega-3. 

However, it is not only important to get enough omega-3, but also to avoid too much omega-6, because a balanced ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 is also crucial for reducing inflammation and promoting skin health.

Ready-made products, sunflower and corn oil have a high Omega 6 content and should therefore be as reduced as possible in the diet.

How is your Omega-3 supply?

If you want to know whether you have enough omega-3, you can have the omega-3 index tested. This blood test can provide information about how high your omega-3 levels are and whether you should make any adjustments to your diet.

our conclusion

Omega-3 fatty acids are an important element for healthy skin by reducing inflammation and supporting skin health. Eating a balanced diet with omega-3-rich foods and paying attention to the ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 can help keep your skin healthy and glowing.

Remember that skin health depends on many factors and Omega-3 is a valuable piece of the puzzle in this big picture.
