Fish Oil And Acne...Can It Really Improve Your Skin Condition?

The answer is simply yes.

Fish oil and acne are related because one of the benefits of fish oil is to prevent and treat skin problems. Foods high in omega 3 or fish oil supplements can also do wonders to your hair.

And I am the "living proof" that it works!! Like I told you on my page about vitamins, my older son and I both have a genetic and rare disease called Pili Torti Monilethrix also known as "Twisted hairs". Taking supplements, especially pure fish oil supplements really improve our hair's condition and by the same time my skin condition.

What Are The Main Causes Of Acne?

Acne, a skin problem that mostly affects teenagers but also adults, affects some specific parts of the body such as the face, neck and upper back.


  • Hormones (androgen which influence the production of sebum; this hormone is very active during teenage years)
  • Stress
  • Bacteria
  • Poor diet

Acne Appears When...

There is an excess of sebum production. The pores on the surface of the skin get blocked, this lead to a build up of bacteria in pores and the skin becomes inflamed and then pimples appear.

What can you do about it?
