Use Essential Fatty Acid To Help You Eliminate Your Acne

By Rudy Silva

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:

  • omega-3

  • omega-6

  • omega-9

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

  • A weaken immune system

  • Inflammatory disorders

  • Poor skin

  • Skin eruptions and other wounds that won't heal

  • Sebum production increases (this is what happens when you have acne)

  • Sebaceous glands size increases

Eating essential fatty acids 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,

  • avocados

  • sesame seeds

  • pumpkin seeds

  • walnuts

  • dark leafy green vegetables (spinach, mustard greens, kale)

  • wheat germ oil

  • salmon

  • sardines

  • albacore 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,

  • olive oil

  • flaxseed oil

  • flaxseeds

  • grape seed oil

  • pistachio nuts

  • olives

  • sunflower seeds

  • chicken

  • evening primrose oil

  • pumpkin seeds

  • pine 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 creations of acne or pimples start using more essential fatty acids.
