Our bodies can’t make their own EFA’s, so it is vital that we get them from our diet” – Janine Tait, Dermo-Nutritionist & Bestow Founder.
When I began working from within, one of the first things I learnt was that EFA (essential fatty acid) deficiencies are the most common cause of skin problems. Many process in the skin depend on good quality EFA’s, but with our modern diet we just don’t get enough of them. Our bodies can’t make their own EFA’s, so it is vital that we get them from our diet.
Most people will be deficient in EFA’s without even knowing! This can cause problems with oil regulation, meaning a deficiency can present itself as either dry or oily skin. The strength of the skin can also be affected making your skin more sensitive or reactive. However an EFA deficiency isn’t always visible which makes it hard to diagnose. It’s important to remember that even with no visible symptoms, it’s still likely that you could have an underlying EFA deficiency, which can prematurely age your skin.
