Essential Fatty Acids for Ultra Hydrated Skin

Most people are still unaware that fatty acids are essential for maximum hydration to maintain ultra ageless skin glow.  Often leading aestheticians in NYC will consult their clients on the best ways to access these critical nutrients to keep skin looking healthy and youthful.  But you can also do your research in advance of that next much-deserved holiday facial.

How do fatty acids improve dermal health?

There are 23 amino acids in the food chain that help to build proteins critical for ultimate dermal health.  The elasticity we depend on in our anti-aging regime comes from these regenerative acids that bolster protein production.  When penetrating epidermal layers the acids extend to cells their emollient properties, giving them buoyancy while adding a dramatic luster to the skin surface.  As a result you will now have far fewer fine lines and wrinkles.


A string of fatty acids are linked by peptides which together form the connective tissue that is your skin.  As we apply enriching face products that contain protein-fortifying acids, the dermis is strengthened for a visage that prevents the break down which occurs with time and age.  This is also why it is vital to develop a face care routine that incorporates professional facials best able to inhibit the onset of aging.

What face care and foods offer fatty acids? 

It’s easy to understand while those in the know indulgently lather on the shea and cocoa butters.  These are two of the most natural and ancient sources of amino acids since the dawn of the skincare industry, dating back to Ancient Egypt.  These are healing and age-defying butters that minimize blemishes and the signs of aging with eye-catching results.

Due to their reparative qualities haute face care products often source fatty acids as key ingredients in anti-aging serums and moisturizers. Some acids, such as carnitine found in supplements, are known detoxifiers that expel contaminants from skin tissue for a clearer complexion.

Whether it’s through a diet rich in fatty acids or advanced natural skincare, the undeniable deliverables certainly please when it comes to promoting skin’s optimal health.  Throughout the season and the year overall Omega 3, 6 and 9 are the most common vital fatty acids important to include in your daily menu. They are found in protein abundant foods such as fish, eggs, nuts and soy.  So load up for radiant skin.
