According to the Home Remedies Web, flax seed oil is considered the most important vitamin supplement beyond the multivitamin. Among its many benefits, flax seed oil aids in the healing of wounds, bruises and several skin ailments, such as eczema, psoriasis and even wrinkles. "The more omega 3 acids you have in your body, the strong the layer of fat will be around the skin cells," informs the Anti Aging Project.

  2. 2

    Squeeze the capsule until the oil is released from the capsule onto your finger.

  3. 3

Tips and warnings

  • Flax seed oil may be used exclusively, or mixed with other natural oils and/or butters (coconut, mango butter, Shea butter, illipe butter, aloe-vera, other).
  • Mix the oil from two flax seed capsules and one teaspoon of Shea Butter. Apply mixture to the problem areas of the face. Wash face daily, at least twice, applying flax seed oil in the evenings, as flax seed oil is typically greasy.
  • As of 2010, there are no specified risks with the use of flaxseed oil as an anti-ageing agent.
