Seed Your Success Jan 3 · 7m Luminous Skin is Just One Fatty Acid AwayHey lovely, does your interest peak when solutions are offered when it comes to keeping your skin looking youthful? Do you struggle with brain fog or low energy levels? In this episode, we will be discussing the incredible benefits of DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) on maintaining healthy, youthful-looking skin. DHA is a type of omega-3 fatty acid that has been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects, improve skin moisture retention, and promote skin repair. These properties make it an effective tool in preventing wrinkles and other signs of aging. We will explore the science behind DHA's actions on the skin, as well as how it can be incorporated into a skincare routine. We will also discuss the potential for DHA to improve brain health and energy levels, making it a versatile nutrient for overall health and wellness. Tune in to learn more about the powerful effects of DHA on wrinkles prevention and how you can incorporate it into your beauty routine. The Powerful Effects of DHA on Wrinkles Prevention DHA is a truly amazing micronutrient! Docosahexaenoic acid (better known as DHA) is one of the Omega-3 fatty acids (along with eicosapentaenoic acid, or EPA). As you no doubt know, Omega-3s are found in a wide range of food sources, including: Flax seeds Algae Cold-water fish, including salmon, tuna, mackerel, herring, and cod liver DHA is particularly important for your brain. It accounts for up to 97% of the fatty acids in the human brain, and up to 25% of the total fat content in your brain. It’s critical for memory, recall, cognitive function, and can even prevent Alzheimer’s. DHA also plays a role in everything from pregnancy to eye health, from cognitive development to heart disease, even depression and the treatment of arthritis. But today, we want to highlight a truly important but lesser-known function of DHA: maintaining skin health. How DHA Prevents Wrinkles and Protects Your Skin You might have seen images or read articles about how fish skin is sometimes used on human skin for grafts. This is done to not only speed up healing, but to provide an infusion of skin-critical nutrients—including DHA. DHA is has been the subject of a number of studies, which examined how this amazing Omega-3 fatty acid could help to protect the skin against damage such as UV radiation, environmental pollutants, etc. - and accelerate repair. Back in 2013, a team of researchers examined the effects of both DHA and EPA on the skin, examining inflammation, fatty acid composition in the skin cell membranes, and the function of the lipid rafts that affect skin composition. As the study discovered, regular intake of DHA (in this case, in supplement form) led to reduced inflammation and better skin cell composition. In 2018, another study found that DHA can not only decrease inflammation, but also accelerate skin healing (from wounds and environmental damage). The study actually recommended using DHA-rich fish oil for both dermatological and cosmetic treatments, specifically to improve skin health. But it was a 2020 study that really provided the most fascinating insight into DHA and its ability to improve your skin health. The study involved caviar (sturgeon eggs), which are incredibly rich in DHA, which proved to have a preventive role in UV-induced skin aging. Specifically, the DHA enhanced adipocyte activity, increased adiponectin production, and in so doing, prevented premature skin aging (including wrinkles and skin lines) caused by UVB radiation in sunlight. To understand how DHA helps, we need to take a closer look at how wrinkles form… Wrinkles are the creases, folds, or ridges in your skin that appear as you age. They’re the result of tension in the muscles of your eyes and mouth. When you’re young, your skin is able to repair any microscopic damage that occurs as a result of this tension. However, as you age, your skin grows thinner, repairs are affected more slowly, and the elasticity of your skin decreases. Eventually, the wrinkles deepen beyond your body’s ability to repair. One of the main reasons your body can’t repair itself effectively is due to the decrease in collagen and elastin production. Collagen and elastin are the two proteins that keep your skin fresh, tight, and elastic. As your aging naturally decreases their production, there aren’t enough of these proteins to effect repairs. UV-induced damage is another major contributor to wrinkles. The radiation in sunlight accelerates the breakdown of collagen and elastin, triggering inflammation in the “damaged” areas, which in turn makes it harder for your body to make repairs. This vicious combination of more sun damage and less protein is what leads to wrinkle formation. And that’s where DHA comes in! By reducing UV-induced skin damage, DHA gives your skin a fighting chance at making repairs. DHA counteracts the inflammation and acts as a moisture barrier to prevent skin dryness (which also decreases collagen and elastin production). It serves as an external protector that, paired with a healthy diet rich in the nutrients required to produce collagen and elastin, increases the longevity of your skin and stave off wrinkles. DHA, via fish oil, is a truly marvelous supplement to add to your daily life. Taking it orally can deliver an infusion of the fatty acids that contribute to brain health, regulate mood, and decrease internal inflammation. Evoq makes sure to curate clean and cold pressed lipids like DHA —to help to fight wrinkles and stave off UV-induced skin damage. With the anti-inflammatory, skin-protecting, oil-infusing benefits of DHA, you can give your skin more years of smooth, sleek beauty. It’s such a simple fatty acid, but it will improve your health on so many levels! Visit Evoq Beauty for Lipid Rich, Organic Skincare: Evoqbeauty.com
