4 Omega-Rich Oils for Beautiful Skin

Fat has a bad rap. But the truth is, not all fats are bad. In fact -- and this may come as a surprise -- your body, including your skin, requires some fats for good health.

4 Types of Oil for Skin Health & Beauty

Why your body needs fat

Fat is broken down by the body down into compounds called fatty acids. Omega-3 and omega-6 fats are considered essential fatty acids (EFAs) because, even though the body cannot make them on its own, they're essential for health. They can be obtained from foods such as nuts, seeds, fish and other animal fats.

EFAs are building blocks for healthy cells and assist with many regulatory and developmental processes in the body, from brain and nervous system function to blood pressure to immune response.

How fat affects skin & hair

Omega fats also add substantial support to the body’s appearance. Deficiencies in EFAs have been linked to skin issues, including eczema, dandruff and split nails. If a deficiency exists, skin may become dry, inflamed and more prone to congestion, which can lead to further pigmentation, redness, infection, texture and breakdown. Because they contribute to the production of the skin’s natural oil barrier, EFAs help keep the skin hydrated, plump, youthful and aptly protected.

When it comes to the appearance of hair, a deficiency in EFAs can lead to the scalp and hair becoming dry, flaky and lackluster. By effectively penetrating the hair shaft to protect hair from UV exposure and pollution, EFAs help repair damaged follicles and promote healthy hair growth.

Omega-rich oils for beauty

While EFAs should always be part of a healthy diet, you might also consider using them topically in your beauty routine. Here are four omega-rich oils to try:

Argan Oil

Consisting of more than 80 percent polyunsaturated EFAs, plus omega-9 and twice the vitamin E of olive oil, argan oil is light and easily absorbed. It’s perfect for your face, hair and body. However, it is extremely important to find 100 percent cold-pressed and unrefined argan oil. Refined versions lose over 60 prcent of this essential fatty acid power!

Marula Oil

Also lightweight, marula oil contains the full spectrum of omega 3, 6, and 9 fatty acids. In addition, it contains one of the highest concentrations of antioxidants you'll find in an oil.

Borage Oil

Borgae oil contains the highest known levels of plant-based gamma linoleic acid (omega 6), which provides a boost to skin barrier function and can help soothe inflammation.*

Pumpkin Seed Oil

Also known as “green gold,” pumpkin oil is one of the most nutritious oils, delivering omega 3 and 6 EFAs, plus vitamin E and zinc. It adds shine to hair and protection to the hair follicle in addition to the skin’s barrier function.*
