Yes, there’s help in rebuilding collagen, despite past damage

Like me, you probably know that among other fun things, sun, alcohol, and sugar are super evil at destroying collagen.

Consuming Omega 3 helps reduce wrinkles. How about applying this stinky oily supplement on your face?!

Omega-3 Supplements, put in small glass

Put some stinky fish oil on your face!

I had tonnes of fish oil supplements on-hand before heading out to a natural path, who suggested alternate brands with more effective ratio of EPA to DHA; as a side: I’m not even going try to claim which is the best ratio, as your doctor may advise what’s better for unique you.
