Lacking EFAs? Some skin symptoms that suggest you are

How EFAs affect the skin

Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) are just that – essential. Our bodies don’t make EFAs so we need to get them from our food. Particularly these are Omega 3 and Omega 6. Although we need both, it’s the Omega 3s our society is extremely lacking in.

Omega 3s help with many things such as inflammation in the body. And most disease sets in from?… Inflammation. When we are lacking EFA’s, our body is not only inflamed but other parts of the body are affected as well. We also need to stay optimal for our brain function and skin health too!

Some amazingly simple sources of EFAs and particularly Omega 3 are: ground flax, chia seeds, walnuts, oily fish, or even a high-quality fish oil.

Skin has always peaked my interest since my cosmetology days, and having gone through some horrendous times of my life with acne, I love to soak up whatever info I can!

Woman, in particular spend hordes amount of money on skin products that go on the outside of the skin – the outer layer or epidermis. The reality is it’s the cells on the inside that need to be taken care of. It’s from the inside where EFA’s do their miracle work giving us dewy a look, shiny locks, help prevent wrinkles, and dry skin.

The outer layer of the skin renews every 28 days. By including EFAs from whole food sources and proper supplementation, you are protecting each cell inside your body. Since we have trillions of cells, it’s important to take care of them so they can take care of you!

When we experience things like overall dryness of the skin, excessively dry elbows, or cracked heels, these are signs of a lack of EFAs. In fact, a really obvious sign of lacking Omegas is the rough, dry, cracked ring around the heel of the foot that can form. And you thought you just needed a pedicure!

Over the next two months, consciously focus on increasing your Omegas particularly Omega 3. See what happens. After 28 days, you will have all new cells on the outside. Think of the possibilities after 2 months!

I challenge you to amp up the EFA’s over the next two months. See the results on your skin, hair, and mood.

It all starts on the inside,

p.s. Don’t forget to keep up with lots of water. This too will help with the dryness especially if you live in a dry climate like I do.

p.p.s. And remember your sunscreen…even in the winter!
