Proper Hydration is Not Only Water

To obtain hydrated dewy type skin, you must get enough fluids throughout the day. Drinking water is one way, however, eating fluid-rich foods such as fruit and vegetables is equally as important. Not only are vegetables and fruits good sources of hydration but they also contain vitamins and minerals along with antioxidants that are critical for healthy supple skin.

Your Skin Needs a Lube Job

In addition to water and nutrient rich foods, there is another food the affects the moisture generated in your skin. Omega-3 and Omega-6  essential fatty acids are essential nutrients for your skin cell membranes. These essential fats help control inflammation and prevent dryness.

What Are Essential Fatty Acid  Rich Foods

Foods rich in Omega-3 fatty acids include walnuts, salmon, mackerel, and sardines. Those high in Omega-6 fatty acids include most vegetables oils, however, we do not recommend vegetable oils as sources because today they are highly processed.

What Can You Do?

To obtain the Omega-3 fatty acids you can eat fish on a regular basis but it needs to be the oily fish such as salmon, mackerel, halibut and sardines. For most people this is difficult to do. If you don’t eat these fish on a regular basis you should take a high quality fish oil in the proper dosage for you specifically. To obtain the Omega-6 fatty acids we recommend staying away from those highly processed vegetables oils and in their place we recommend a high quality Omega-6 fatty acid supplement.
