Use Essential Fatty Acid To Help You Prevent or Eliminate Your Acne

To eliminate or clear your face of acne it will require you take a variety of health steps. The use of essential fatty acids is but one step. I have identified 10 different steps but will only discuss one step in this article – using essential fatty acids.

Getting sufficient essential fatty acids is of prime
importance in clearing acne. It’s these fatty acids that help
to control the production of excess androgens – the hormones that
surge during the teen-age times It is androgens, which causes excess
sebum oil to clog your hair follicle and contribute to creating
your acne.

The three fatty acids you need to get daily are:




When you are deficient in these essential fatty acids, you will

ˇA weaken immune system

ˇInflammatory disorders

ˇPoor skin

ˇSkin eruptions and other wounds that won’t heal

ˇSebum production increases (this is what happens

when you have acne)

ˇSebaceous glands size increases

Eating essential oils are necessary to provide you the right oils that
are used in the sebaceous glands. These oils can come from
straight vegetable oils or from oils in specific foods such as
nuts and seeds.

Here’s what you need to do. Use flax seed oil (omega-3 oil) and olive oil (omega-6 oil) in your salad. These are the best oils to eat and are called polyunsaturated fatty acids.

The other oil that is even better for you is called monounsaturated fatty acid or omega-9. This oil is found in avocados and somewhat in olive oil.

Most diets people have contain an excess of omega-6 oil (olive oil),
so mostly likely you need to concentrate on getting more
omega-3 oil (flax seed oil) into your diet.

You can get omega-3 oil from,


ˇsesame seeds

ˇpumpkin seeds


ˇdark leafy green vegetables (spinach, mustard greens, kale)

ˇwheat germ oil



ˇalbacore tuna

Or, you can take one to two tablespoon of flax seed oil,
omega-3 oil, each day. This will give you the amount of
omega-3 oil that your body needs. You can add this oil to
your morning cereal, soups, smoothies, salads and other
liquid foods.

You can get omega-6 oil from,

ˇolive oil

ˇflaxseed oil


ˇgrape seed oil

ˇpistachio nuts


ˇsunflower seeds


ˇevening primrose oil

ˇpumpkin seeds

ˇpine nuts

Taking 2-3 tablespoons of omega-6 oil a day will give you
the amount of this oil that you body needs.

So, to control those androgens and help your body reduce the production of acne or pimples start using more essential fatty acids.
