Flaxseed oil contains both omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which are needed for health. Flaxseed oil contains the essential fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), which the body converts into eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), which is the omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil.

The Omega 3 protein can help smooth the appearance of wrinkles by helping to repair the skin cells. Because of the high levels of Omega 3 in Flax Seed Oil, it has been traditionally used as a remedy for psoriasis in which the skin becomes inflamed and irritated.
