Most American diets are low in fish oil. I think the common mantra is "give me a good steak." Also those who do eat fish can cause the Omega-3s to be destroyed by over-heating or over-cooking the fish.

This may cause one to require a supplement to get an essential amount of fish oils in their diet.

There is a website called with some references regarding fish oil supplements. Perhaps this can be added to your diet so you can have softer, more supple, healthier looking skin.

Thanks for visiting.
