As salaam alaikum,
I need to keep this simple as I have had fibro fog for the last 3-5 days but I’m fighting it and been researching aromatherapy to combat it but that’s another story in shaa Allah.
I was with a group of sisters recently and one cookie sistar told me she is now doing natural skin remedies and that flax seed gel is really clearing up her wrinkles, she’s young already but it got me thinking SKIN!
I use soaked flax seed in my smoothies because of the high Omega 3, anti inflammatory properties and fibre. Eating foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids can lead to smoother, younger-looking skin and visibly reduce inflammatory skin conditions like acne and psoriasis.
Studies conducted in postmenopausal women have reported that flaxseed supplementation (38 g/day of whole flaxseed) can lower serum LDL cholesterol, Lp(a) serum TC, non-HDL cholesterol, TGs, apolipoprotein A1 and apolipoprotein B . Dietary flaxseed (40 g/day of crushed flax-seed) has effects that are similar to hormone replacement therapy for decreasing menopausal symptoms as well as ‘hot flashes’ in post-menopausal women not taking estrogen therapy.[.

There is a lot of data regarding the consumption of flax seeds and flax seed oil but on the skin as well?
The Omega 3 oil in Flax Seed Oil and Gel is able to penetrate the skin and reduce inflammation. That combined with eating it every day looks like we are on to a wine win in shaa Allah.
After a little research I saw that flax seed gel is great on your hair.
Omega-3 oils are necessary to build the structural barrier of the skin and hair which is mainly a protein called keratin. It may help the skin retain moisture and prevent excessive dryness and roughness.
