Omega-3 Fatty Acids Known affectionately as the "good fats," omega-3 fatty acids are essential in battling winter skin woes because their benefits are twofold. First, they're jam-packed with much-needed moisture to nourish and strengthen your cells' membranes. The more moisturized your skin's barrier is, the better your skin is at holding in moisture, thereby preventing dryness, wrinkles and fine lines. Omega-3s are also anti-inflammatory agents. Adding more of these essential fatty acids to your diet can help your skin heal after UV damage and prevent inflammatory skin conditions that can be aggravated by harsh weather, such as acne, eczema and psoriasis.
