Our expert says:
I must admit that I have not heard of omega-3 fatty acids making the skin oily and/or causing pimples. I would recommend that you consult a Dermatologist to find out if the skin condition is being caused by the salmon oil/omega-3 or if it is due to other factors. Otherwise cut out the salmon oil for a month to see if your skin improves and if not, see the Dermatologist. In general omega-3 supplementation is used to improve skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis.
