Omegas/Fatty Acids

Omega fatty acids are vital fats that keep you thriving on the inside and outside. When consumed, they are essential for a healthy, balanced diet — but those benefits are also mirrored when omegas are applied topically to the skin. Uniquely, Active Botanical Serum contains all four omegas - 3,6,7, and the rare 9.

What are omega fatty acids?

Omegas help protect, soothe, and hydrate the skin, and are especially beneficial for those of us with dryness and dehydration. They are extra healing and protecting, making them miracle moisturizers for flaky, irritated complexions. As the seasons change and temperatures dip, our skin also adjusts, making it important to use Active Botanical Serum because its offering of omegas provides the lasting moisture skin needs to maintain a soft, supple look and feel.

How do omega fatty acids applied topically benefit the skin?

Think about omega fatty acids as healers and protectors of the skin. When you are experiencing breakouts, dryness, or uneven texture, they work to revitalize and repair these compromised areas. At the same time, the omega fatty acids found in Active Botanical Serum are incredibly calming and soothing to inflamed skin. Perhaps the biggest benefit of omega fatty acids, though, is how they protect the skin barrier (the outer layer). The barrier helps fend off dust, pollution, and bacteria while sealing in glow-inducing moisture. Maintaining a healthy, strong barrier is crucial to plump, hydrated, healthy skin, and omega fatty acids help make it possible.

What is the best way to consume omegas for additional skincare benefits?

If you want to give your skin a boost from the inside out, consider adding fatty acid-rich foods to your diet. Salmon, mackerel, flaxseed, avocado, nuts, seeds, grapeseed oil, and leafy greens like kale and spinach are all healthy additions to your diet that will also result in radiance in your complexion.
