I am an all-natural beauty fanatic, so when I heard about the skin benefits of sardines, I was thrilled. According to PopSugar, eating sardines leads to glowing skin in as little as three days. Yes, you read that right. In under a week you can get better skin by simply changing up your diet. Sounds easy, right?
Eating the oily little fish is a part of the anti-inflammatory diet that nutritionists recommend patients get on to see skin improvements. But, there's one catch — you'd actually have to eat sardines to receive the benefits. That's all well and good if you like them, but if you don't, well... According to PopSugar, the slimy snack has more omega-3s than salmon and contain high levels of B-12, protein, calcium, and iron. So, basically, if you can get past the taste, you're on your way to flawless skin heaven.
But this isn't practical for a lot of at-home beauty gurus out there. Sardines might be inexpensive, but many think they're kind of (okay, extremely) gross. Can't handle the taste? No worries! There are skin care products out there that have amped up their omega-3s so you don't have to eat anything slimy, but can still get all the benefits. Think of it as a tiny win for everyone with skin!
