Omega 3 is often touted as the skin EFA (Essential Fatty Acid) but the reality is that Omega 6 that is vital for the skin to produce ceramide 1 linoleate. Ceramide 1 linoleate is the most important ceramide but unfortunately its levels in the skin decrease in the winter and as we age. So a good solution to this is to boost our omega 6 intake during winter and as we get older. The Bestow Beauty Oil will do this for you if you take it everyday mixed into food.

EFA’s like omega 3 and 6 also reduce skin inflammation and ease dry skin problems like eczema and psoriasis that leave the skin more vulnerable to wrinkling and premature ageing.


Brazil nuts are a wonderful source of selenium, a mineral known for its ability to improve the condition of your skin, hair and nails.

The Otago University did a study that showed two Brazil nuts a day increased blood serum selenium levels better than supplements. But remember, only two a day, as high selenium levels are toxic.

Brazil nuts also contain good amount of zinc, an amazing skin mineral and one that I always consider when working with skin conditions or preventing skin ageing. Zinc helps heal our skin and ensures proper keratinisation of our Stratum Corneum.

Zinc is also a vital component required to make healthy collagen. Unfortunately it is also the building block we are most to be deficient in so most of us need to boost our levels.
