Fuelling the body with a vitamin-rich diet and the right supplements is the perfect recipe for healthy skin, hair and nails. Here’s a list of some of the best supplements and a quick guide of what they can do:
A deficiency in selenium can hamper the hair’s ability to grow, leading to thinning and hair loss so by taking it as a supplement it can help to encourage hair growth. Many shampoos can contain selenium because it’s useful for preventing and eliminating dandruff too!
Vitamin E promotes healthy blood circulation, helping more oxygen to reach the surface of the skin, scalp and nail bed. It’s an antioxidant that heals skin damage, reduces the appearance of scars and wrinkles whilst feeding the nails, making them feel stronger and appear healthier.
B-Complex Vitamins like Biotin and Niacin are perfect for restoring thickness and shine to the hair. They prevent hair loss and breakage as well as helping to thicken nail cuticles and brighten the skin.
Found in oily fish, nuts and seeds, omega 3 fatty acids are a real superhero supplement. Great for boosting memory and promoting general wellbeing, they also provide the body with a rich source of moisture helping to nourish hair follicles and prevent brittle, weak nails.
Vitamin D repairs and rejuvenates the skin, helping it to look younger and feel softer. Its anti-inflammatory properties make it useful for treating skin damage, burns and stretch marks, as well as dry skin conditions like eczema and rosacea. Better yet, Vitamin D also stimulates hair growth.
Thick tresses, strong nails and glowing skin can be encouraged by taking a hair, skin and nails formula or a healthy hair complex, which incorporate a rich selection of vitamins and minerals in a single tablet.
