4. Fish and seafood
The omega-3 fatty acids found in fish and seafood may help slow down the wrinkling process. Wrinkle development is rooted in inflammation, Dr. Logan says. “Inflammatory chemicals are essentially like acid rain on the collagen of your skin. Omega-3s turn down the dial on the production of these chemicals,” he explains. Omega-3s can also help combat acne in a similar way. “Acne spots can look red and are often warmer to the touch, a clear sign of inflammation,” Dr. Koo says. “Omega-3 fatty acids also have mood-regulating benefits, which can help with the stress component of having acne.” Koo recommends that acne sufferers consume four to five servings of fish rich in omega-3s per week to help treat the condition. If you can’t imagine eating that much fish every week, Koo suggests taking fish oil supplements instead.
