Sydney Morning Herald - August 2011

We know we should eat more fish but the benefits are only just becoming clear, writes Shelly Horton. Dermatologist from Northern Sydney Dermatology, Dr Nina Wines, says there is mounting evidence fish oil is helpful for skin conditions, too.

“There is some evidence it has anti-inflammatory qualities, which may be helpful for eczema and psoriasis,'' she says. ''And there's evidence fish oil helps with the sebum or fatty-acid content of the skin, which keeps skin hydrated.'
