How to pack your Lunch to have Healthy Hair and Healthy Skin!

Have you noticed that those lucky folk with great skin also have great hair? There is definitely a correlation with both and what you put in your body can definitely make a difference. Sure, some people are just blessed with good skin and hair genes but there are things that you can do to bring back to life your skin and locks.

Many of my patients ask me how I maintain my skin looking healthy and vibrant. My secret is including omega-3 fatty acids in my daily diet. Eating salmon, sardines, herring or mackerel two or three times a week really does make a difference! My staff can testify to my love of sardines, which I pack for lunch every day!

Omega 3 – fatty acids is part of the “good fats” that have recently been credited with increasing heart health as well as helping your skin look healthier. The foods highest in omega-3 fatty acids include seafood but if fish is not your thing you can also find it in walnuts, canola oil, and flax seed.

The best way I like to use flaxseeds or flaxseed oil is to sprinkle or add it to on my salads or my gluten-free oatmeal. Not only does diet change help with glowing skin and healthy hair but it also improves hair loss, dandruff, eczema and even dry eye syndrome. Dr. Tim often prescribes Tears Again Hydrate to his patients for dry eye, which is a prescription strength dose of Omega-3.

Some people claim that they see results right away so what do you have to lose? By incorporating Omega-3’s into your diet, you can make a vast difference in the way you look and feel!
