Skin health takes in to account about dry skin, sun burns, Skin laxity and wrinkles, wound healing ability of skin, effect of aging on skin etc. The primary fuel for skin cells is glucose; glucose oxidation rates in skin are similar to those observed in resting skeletal muscle.

Omega-3 fatty acids help keep the top outer layer of the skin strong and intact so that external toxins and pollutants are kept out.
