No dietary nutrient has more impact on the health of the skin than fat. Essential skin supporting vitamins like Vitamin A, D, E and K used topically are all fat soluble which means without a sufficient amount of fat in your diet they won’t be adequately absorbed resulting in rough, dry skin prone to blackheads and blockages like blackheads.

Including fats in your diet slows down the ageing process by moisturising and plumping the skin, making it less prone to wrinkles.

Where to get your fats from – nuts, avocados, coconut oil, fatty fish, flaxseed and olive oil.
