The majority of people eating ground flax or taking the oil are doing so because of their incredibly high omega-3 fatty acid content.
There are two ways to use flaxseed oil for hair and improving its strength and shine. Both of them rely on the extremely high omega-3 alpha linolenic acid content of flax seeds, which is concentrated even further in cold pressed flaxseed oil.

You can use flax oil for dry skin in two different ways and this page will show how cold pressed flaxseed oil can help improve your facial skin tone and moisturization levels.
The first is by applying it to your face as an external moisturizer. Not only does the very high omega-3 content in the oil have an anti-inflammatory effect, it also helps normalize skin lipids and seal in moisture, both of which leads to improved hydration.
Flaxseed oil is the richest food source of alpha linolenic acid (ALA), comprising over 50% of this essential omega-3 dietary fat.
Unfortunately, ALA consumption has dropped significantly in modern times, while, by comparison, most people’s intake of omega-6 fats like linoleic acid has increased dramatically.

While scientists don’t seem to be certain on the exact causes of eczema, it is believed to be the combined effect of various dietary and environmental triggers, along with a genetic susceptibility leading to problems with normal skin barrier function.
