What is the benefit of Omega-3 for acne?

 


Dermatologists in Germany have identified what may be a crucial link between acne and omega-3 fatty acid deficiency.

 

The team behind the study, based at the Department of Dermatology and Allergy in Munich, examined 100 acne patients and, by measuring nutritional parameters in their blood, found that 94% of patients had lower than recommended levels (8-11%). of omega-3 fatty acids (ω-3-FA).


 

The diet of the patients was examined and it was found that those who regularly consumed pulses such as chickpeas and lentils, as well as those who limited their consumption of sunflower oil, had higher levels of the key  fatty acids.

 

The dermatology team behind the study urged clinicians to always ask about the eating habits of acne patients , as this is of great importance when discussing the diagnosis and treatment of their condition.

 

Nutrition plays a major role in the prevention, onset and course of many diseases, including dermatological diseases such as acne vulgaris, scientists explain.

 

As part of a modern treatment approach, clinicians should provide patients with information about how their diet  may affect their dermatologic diagnosis and potentially improve therapeutic outcomes.

 

For years, negative effects on acne vulgaris have been attributed to the Western diet due to its direct effects on IGF-1 levels.

 

However, the preventive and therapeutic measures accompanying the diet have not yet been considered sufficiently.

 

In this regard, omega-3 fatty acids  seem most promising due to their anti-inflammatory effects.

 

A healthy diet is essential for long-term remission of acne vulgaris.

 

Omega-3 fatty acids, found in foods such as legumes, algae, nuts, seeds, fish such as wild salmon and sardines, reduce inflammation by stimulating the production of anti-inflammatory prostaglandins E1 and E3, leukotriene B5 and lowering levels of insulin-like growth factor ( IGF)-1 - the central hormone that causes acne .

 

In the study, patients with omega-3 levels lower than 8% showed higher levels of IGF-1, compared to patients without fatty acid deficiency.

 

The aim of the present study was to investigate the levels of omega-3 fatty acids in the blood of patients with acne in erythrocytes and correlate them with the clinical severity of the disease and the dietary habits of the patients.

 

Data show a trend toward omega-3 fatty acid deficiency in the general population.

 

The study confirmed a worsening of acne in patients diagnosed with omega-3 deficiency.

Herbal skin care



acne
Skin care is not a topic of recent times; it has been in practice since ancient times, when herbal skin care was probably the only way to take care of skin. However, skin care has transformed in a big way. Herbal skin care routines have been replaced by synthetic/chemical-based skin care routines. The herbal skin care recipes which once used to be common place are not so popular today (and even unknown to a large population). This transformation from herbal skin care to synthetic, can probably be attributed to two things – our laziness (or just the fast pace of lives) and the commercialisation of skin care. Even herbal skin care products have been commercialised. These commercial herbal skin care products have to be mixed with preservatives in order to increase their shelf-life, hence making them less effective than the fresh ones made at home. However, it seems that things are changing fast and more people are now opting for natural and herbal skin care routines. But still, none want to make them at home and hence the commercial market of herbal skin care products is on the rise.

So what are these herbs or herbal skin care mechanisms?

Aloe vera, which is an extract from Aloe plant, is one of the best examples of herbal skin care product. Freshly extracted aloe vera is a natural hydrant that helps in soothing skin. It also helps in healing cuts and treating sun burns.

A number of herbs are known to possess cleansing properties. Dandelion, chamomile, lime flowers and rosemary herbs, are a few examples of such cleansers. Their herbal skin care properties get invoked when they are combined with other herbs like tea.

Antiseptics are another important part of Herbal skin care. Lavender, marigold, thyme and fennel are good examples of herbs that are known to possess antiseptic properties. Lavender water and rose water also form good toners.

Tea plays an important part in herbal skin care.  Tea extracts are used for treatment of skin that has been damaged by UV radiation.

Oils prepared from herbal extracts present another means of herbal skin care.  Tea tree oil, Lavender oil, borage oil and primrose oil are some popular oils used in herbal skin care.  Some fruit oils (e.g. extracts from fruits like banana, apple and melon) find use in shower gels (as a hydrating mix)

Homeopathic treatments and aroma therapies also come under the umbrella of herbal skin care remedies.

ClearSkinMaxHerbal skin care is good not only for the routine nourishing of skin but also for treatment of skin disorders like eczema and psorasis. Most herbal skin care products don’t have any side effects (the most important reason for preferring them over synthetic products) Moreover, herbal skin care products can be easily made at home, hence making them even more attractive. So, herbal skin care is the way to go. However, this does not mean that you totally discard the synthetic products. Some people go to the extent of debating with their dermatologist, if he/she suggests a synthetic product. You should accept the fact that some skin orders might need usage of clinically proven non-herbal skin care products.

Cosmetics provides some protection from the sun. Titanium dioxide and zinc oxide contained in the products help block the penetration of sunlight. Of course, prolonged sun exposure is recommended to use a sunscreen.

Zinc oxide also has anti-inflammatory properties and because it contains a higher percentage in mineral makeup than traditional, it may be useful to soothe irritated skin.

Are there risks of using mineral makeup? According to some claims micronized mineral makeup is ultra-small particles called nanoparticles that can penetrate the skin barrier and cause potentially dangerous effects.

Other experts say there is no cause for concern. If the particles are actually the size of nanoparticles, they are useless in the makeup because it will become transparent and will not offer coverage, says expert Perry Romanowski.

In combination with other substances, form nitrosamines which are highly carcinogenic. Therefore, especially for babies, recommended cosmetic products with natural foaming agents derived from plants - such as coconut oil or wheat.
