Try ordering the 3 6 9 Total EFA vegetarian liquid. Liquid forms are lot better.

Yeah lol I've been eating canned sardines like 5 days in a row each can has 2-2.5 grams of DHA omega 3, I might eventually start taking a fish oil supplement (not the gel capsules because the capsules themselves are made from plants that have phytoestrogens, I'll have to find a PURE fish oil liquid that doesn't have soy or anything else added to it) and hopefully that'll be easier and cheaper.
yea soy, sesame and ESPECIALLY flax break me out. flax is really bad for my acne. I suggest just eating fish daily. I just started eating wild canned salmon from trader joes because i realize my omega 6 to omega 3 ratio is waaayyy to high, i hardly eat anything with omega 3. No improvements yet though, only been 1 day.

I do think flax is good too, though. The thing with the oil is, you're paying so much more money than you would just buying whole seeds and soaking and grinding them yourself. But if you find you react better to the oil, it's worth it I'd say. I find that I get less of the hormone changing effects of flax if I make a batch, eat it for a few days, then move on to fish to get my omega 3s. When I was loading up on ground flax (like 4-5 spoonfuls a day) it was messing with my hormones too.

also flax is incredibly high in phytoestrogens, i think one of the highest foods.
which is probably why it breaks me out so much
plus since its a plant source, the omegas are absorbed at a much less rate than animal sources.
i would trying avoiding it for around a week or more and see if your skin condition improves
