Got acne? A recipe that helps

We've had a series of pieces about how good different oils are for you skin. Of course, a really healthy oil is one you can find in that superfood, salmon. So for something different this time around, we're sharing one of our favourite recipes that not only tastes great, but helps keep your complexion well-nourished and helps prevent it from drying out and breaking out.
