Fish Oil and Skin Health

It turns out that fish oils that are high in the “good” fats (omega-3s) are beneficial for the heart, arteries, and skin as well. It’s a good idea to take a fish oil supplement if you don’t eat fish at least several times a week. A reasonable dose is 1,000 mg once or twice a day. Some of these oils are a combination of anchovie, sardine and mackerel oils, etc. and some are salmon. Nature’s Path makes a high quality wild Alaska salmon oil product.

Have a great Labor Day Weekend!

SkinTour Skincare
One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
