Essential fatty acids for acne

Among the advice given is: Use flax seed oil (omega 3) and olive oil (omega 6) in your salad. These are the best oils to eat and are called polyunsaturated fatty acids.

The oil that is also excellent is the monounsaturated fatty acid or omega 9. This oil is found in avocado and a little olive oil.
