Not all fats are evil and you really need to understand this. Omega-3 fatty acids are just one example of healthy fats — and they're especially important for those who want to prevent fine lines and wrinkles. "Omega-3 fatty acids reduce inflammation that can lead to wrinkles, and they prevent collagen breakdown," says Keri Glassman, RD, a nutritionist based in New York City.
So where do you find healthy fats? Avocados, olives, coconuts, wild salmon and omega-3 rich organic eggs are great options when it comes to eating healthier versions of fats. Whole nuts and seeds, and their butters like almond butter or tahini are also very good options.
Moreover "Avocados are high in sterolins, which help soften and moisturize the skin," says Glassman. "They also have vitamin E, which enhances the skin's collagen production while sealing in vital moisture."

Coconut milk is satiating and rich. And coconut meat is high in fiber. Some evidence also suggests that the medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) in virgin coconut oil can help you burn off more fat around your waistline.
Eggs are a great fatty addition to your diet because the dietary cholesterol in them doesn't have much effect on your blood cholesterol . In fact, eggs can help regulate how cholesterol is absorbed in the body because of their high concentrations of phospholipids: special kinds of fats that can also help control inflammation.
You should reconsider and change your mindset about fats. They are really a healthy option.
