Flaxing the Skin?!

Flax the Fountain of Youth?

I've been promoting flax consumption to my patients to improve skin health since I read this 2009 publication out of the British Journal of Nutrition.

  • to summarize it basically states that daily flax consumption can reduce skin redness and improve skin hydration, which limits roughness and dryness. In addition, the abundance of omega-3 fats can help your skin retain moisture.

I have been increasingly mindful of my flax consumption and do think I see overall improvements in my skin tone, nothing drastic but every little bit helps right?

Give it a try and let me know if you see an improvement in your own skin!
