Do you suffer from blemishes or moderate to severe acne? Are you in search of an all-natural solution to help clear up your skin? If so, consider adding omega-3 fatty acids to your diet. Salmon and walnuts both contain omega-3 fatty acids, which have been shown to possibly reduce moisture loss and improve inflammation and blemishes. According to a small research study published in the journal Lipids in Health and Disease, omega-3 fatty acid supplementation was possibly associated with improvement of overall acne severity, especially in the subjects with moderate to severe acne.
