You’ve got your skincare regime in the bag already, a regular appointment locked in with your hairdresser, and you know where to go to get your nails in tip-top shape, even if you don’t get there as o en as you’d like. However, while you might guzzle a green juice each morning to kick-start your day, you may still not be geing all the vitamins and minerals you need to keep your hair, skin and nails in peak condition.
If your nails feel brile and weak no maer how much hand cream you apply, split ends and breakages give you more bad hair days than good, and your skin lacks that plump, hydrated feeling you fondly recall from your early twenties, it’s time to think about beautifying from the inside out. Here are some of the vitamins and minerals to look out for on your nutrition mission:
Foods such as kiwifruit, oranges, strawberries, lemons and pineapple are packed with vitamin C, helping to provide the body with support in the fight against free-radical damage.
Playing a key role in the production of collagen in the body, which is essential for the maintenance of hair, skin and nails, silica sources include bananas, oats, wholegrain bread, spinach and mangoes.
Found in eggs, nuts, whole grains and milk, biotin – also known as vitamin B7 or vitamin H – helps to strengthen so , brile nails and reduce breaking and spliing. Biotin is also used by the body as a key component in the formation of keratin, which is vital for maintaining the structure and integrity of your hair.
As an aid to minor wound healing and skin health, zinc is essential. You’ll find a good dose of it in beef, oysters, spinach, avocado and pomegranate.
