Fish oil supplements can be enough to treat the different needs of the skin. Especially problematic skin that suffers from dryness, acne, sensitivity, eczema or rosacea. The essential omega-3 fatty acids that come from salmon, anchovies or sardines, have proven to reduce the appearance of redness and the affected capillaires on the face. EPA can also be found in some fish oils, which is known to affect the build-up of sebum that leads to acne. Other assets of omega-3 fatty acids can protect skin from sun damage, reduce wrinkles and supply hydration. Some fish oil supplements are also a great source of vitamins A, D and E.

Additionally, fish oil also benefits hair by stimulating growth and provides hair with strength, shine, nourishment and moisture. Not to mention the several health benefits – from boosting memory, improving immunity, blood circulation and weight loss (in combination with a good diet and regular exercise) to reducing inflammation and the risk of heart diseases.

Consider going for a good quality supplement as frequent doses of the high level of toxins found in some fish can be dangerous.

THE GUIDE TO CITY SMART SKINCARE

The poor air quality in big cities affects the skin and health more than most would think. Environmental pollution, harmful particles of toxic and smoke, and oxidative stress damage skin in ways that break its protective barrier, causing further impairment that leads to a fatigued complexion, clogged pores, sagging skin, wrinkles and even skin cancer in the long run.

Adapting to a fail proof skincare routine including an exceptional cleanser, a free radical fighting serum, a smart SPF and products packed with antioxidants, plant extracts and powerful active ingredients are therefore mandatory in order to attain a good-looking, healthy skin condition.

New innovations, formulas and techniques reign the realm of self-tanners, constantly improving the effects of achieving the utmost natural, sun-kissed glow or the deepest “fresh-off-Ibiza” tan. Fake tanners have been gaining more attention and encouragement of use over the recent years thanks to advanced technology, providing equally stunning results as compared to a real tan, minus the damaging effects of the sun’s dangerous rays.

St. Tropez is one of the cult brands that have reinvented the way people perceive self-tanning, with the astonishing Gradual Tan In Shower Lotion debuting in 2015. The eponymous tanning label has now taken another step towards a new direction by inventing the first ever self-tanning sheet mask that’s launching this month, just in time for summer ´17.

Gradual Tan In Shower Lotion

Beauty comes from within, and by eating the right food in combination with indulging in the right supplements, the skin will be able to reach its fullest potential and become both beautiful and spotless. Some foods and vitamins are essential to include in the daily beauty regime to target common issues and develop a healthy complexion. It’s about time to visit the local pharmacist and grabbing a jar of vitamin infused supplements.

Vitamin E

During the winter half year, dry and sensitive skin can be a complete discomfort. Especially if it’s also flaking. To prevent this frequent skin problem, storing up on some really good creams and serums packed with Vitamin E is indispensable. So is making sure to stay hydrated. This supplement can be found in spinach, broccoli, mango, avocado, kiwi and tomato. Vitamin E also thickens hair, repairs damaged skin and even treats stretch marks.
