You may have heard about omega-3 fatty acids, the good kind of fats that lower your risk of heart disease. Found in plentiful amounts in salmon, these omega-3s also work as anti-inflammatories, reducing your risk of acne and breakouts. “In addition to promoting heart health, salmon and other fatty fish are great for your complexion and can help fight irritation, swelling, and other skin issues,” says Dr. Hunter. A deficiency in this nutrient has also been linked to hair loss and flaky scalps, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center.
