Nutrition is essential for healthy and youthful skin. Vitally important for keeping the skin in good condition is not just what you apply topically – more importantly, it is what goes ‘in’.
The skin needs good fats such as EPA (omega-3), GLA (omega-6 from virgin evening primrose oil), as well as important nutrients from the diet such as oleic acid (omega-9, found in virgin olive oil) and wholefood nutrients from fresh fruit and vegetables. In this section of our website, we present information about nutrition and skin health, focusing on specific conditions needing therapeutic support. Skin problems are also often a symptom of a deficiency in essential fats.
