The real reason salmon is so good for your skinFFOL Editor 1
According to Dr. Melda Isaac, a board-certified dermatologist in Washington, D.C., salmon also contains vitamin D, which is known to protect the skin against harmful environmental elements like UV rays. As board-certified dermatologist Dr. Tsippora Shainhouse told Insider, “Healthy levels of vitamin D have [also] been demonstrated to prevent skin aging, promote healthy bone growth, possibly reduce the risk of certain cancers, and even improve mood.” It’s even been known to be anti-inflammatory. So it seems beyond the skin benefits, salmon is an all-around healthy food to add to anyone’s diet.
Indeed, salmon does so much more than boost the skin’s health. If you’re looking to add it to your diet, Nazarian believes eating it three times a week is more than enough to reap the benefits. “I think, frankly, if you’re going to eat it more than that, you’ll probably get sick of it,” she admitted.
