Fish oil FTW

I have taken fish oil again for just 5 days since my order arrived and I can really see a difference in my skin! I know omega 3 has an anti inflammatory effect so I guess that, in combination with correcting the fatty acid balance in the skin (That I read about here) have had a real impact on my skin.

I’m really impressed by how quickly it has been too: I can tell a difference after just 5 days at my normal dosage of 1 gram of fish oil (336 mg omega 3 fatty acids)

For a while I wondered if it was a placebo effect but I’m 99% sure that it isn’t.

One thing I find myself wondering: With all the crappy, obvious, insane, potentially damaging, ridiculous and just plain stupid skin care advice I’ve received through my life, why haven’t anyone ever told me about this?

  1. I've read that eating a healthy diet can make all the difference in having a healthy skin. From what I read these are the things that are required:
    - 75% of the diet has to be fresh, raw fruits and vegetables (less fruits, more vegetables, especially leafy greens)
    - all of the diet should be organic, preferably locally grown so it's already ripe when picked
    - no processed food of any kind, nothing pre-packaged, or that has corn syrup in it, etc
    - no sugar of any kind, no pasta, or white rice, or bread (bread, sugar and pasta counting as processed foods)
    - nothing fried
    - boiled meat, beans, peas, brown rice etc are ok
    - lots of water
    These are just general tips to be healthier but they help with skin too. It's a full body transformation.
