Changes in our body are natural – whether that’s from pregnancy, illness, a change of diet, the weather or just life’s inevitable ups and downs. But we don’t have to just shrug our shoulders and say ‘that’s life’. There are things that can be done to restore and improve the condition of our hair, skin and nails.
Our Hair, Skin and Nail Formula will help restore these vital assets to their former glory. Imagine your hair sleek and shiny once again. Your nails growing in a healthy way, strong and attractive. And your skin glowing with vitality. These things are the first things people notice when they see you, so why not become the most beautiful version of yourself?
Ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) – helps build collagen, promotes hair growth and strength, promotes nail strength & growth.
Zinc Gluconate – essential for healthy skin. Also aids the transport of Vitamin A from liver to skin where it’s required for the synthesis of collagen. It also promotes hair growth and prevents hair loss leading to thicker longer hair.
Biotin (Vitamin B7)- vital to many body functions including the metabolisation of carbohydrates, fats and amino acids. Helps prevent dandruff, dry skin and brittle nails, as well as softening of nails, ridges and white spots.
Ferrous Fumarate- essential mineral providing iron. It also prevents spots and blemishes, and helps the body metabolise proteins essential for healthy hair, skin and nails.
Holy Thistle extract – an antioxidant to aid toxin removal and oxygen flow, as well as hydrating and softening skin.
A fantastic head of sleek, shiny hair is one way of telling the world you’re in great health. Do you remember when you were young, before time took its toll? Before straightening, perming and colours were used? Or before time ticked on and dried your hair out?
Or maybe your hair is in reasonable condition, but for some reason it’s just not growing how it used to? Or perhaps it gets to a certain length and then the ends break off? If your hairbrush is full of hair, that’s one way of knowing it’s not in the best health that it could be.
It’s completely normal to lose between 50-100 strands of hair a day (and don’t forget, the longer the hair, the more ‘mass’ there will appear to be’ – but whatever the amount you lose – you’ll know what’s normal for you.
If you’ve started to notice a real difference, then try this test. Put your hand into your hair, and take around 60 hairs between your fingers, and pull, as you run your fingers down your head.
Up to approximately 8 hairs coming away is normal, but if there are 15 or more, this could indicate you need a better diet and some vitamins!
Hair goes through several phases of growth. Generally, around 90% of the hair is in the growing phase, and 10% is ‘resting’. This means that the 10% will fall out, leaving space for newer hair to come through eventually. The 15 or more hairs that come away could be an indicator of excess stress, poor diet and lack of vitamins. We’d recommend trying our Hair, Skin and Nail Formula to see if this improves things for you.
Perhaps your skin is your main concern? As the largest organ of our body, it’s constantly exposed to difficult conditions. In the winter, the heating comes on, drying it out and forcing us to reach for the moisturiser. In the summer it’s the sunshine – lovely, but damaging. In autumn, we suffer from the winds – chapping lips and drying our faces.
And as if that wasn’t enough, there are a host of skin conditions that we may suffer from, either temporarily or permanently, that offer a challenge to us as to how to manage them.
Having a properly-balanced diet is a major factor in good skin health – both in its revitalisation and protection. If you feel your skin isn’t being nourished as well as it could be, our Skin, Hair and Nails Formula could be for you.
Below, we take a look at some of the major vitamins that contribute to good skin health. You’ll find many of these in our supplement.
By taking vitamin C orally, you will help your body protect itself against the harmful UV rays of the sun. The supplement helps by decreasing the damage to the cell, and aiding the skin to heal itself from attack and bodily wounds.
It’s also a wonderful vitamin when it comes to fending off the ageing process. In some cases, it can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and heal damaged skin. Adequate vitamin C intake can also help prevent or repair dry skin.
Of course, it helps if you look after your skin from the outside too. Prevention of exposure to sunlight is the major factor (the recommended exposure for the purposes of vitamin D production is around 10 – 15 minutes per day). Vitamin D is a major contributor to skin health, so don’t miss out on it! Great skin health also means you could see a reduction in the following issues: from wrinkles and rough patches, through to redness, excessive dryness and dark spots.
The outer layer of skin is known as the epidermis, and this is where the highest levels of vitamin C are found. It’s a vital vitamin – an anti-oxidant (helpful in fighting things like cancer), and its role in the production of collagen helps keep the skin’s elasticity. It’s rare to be deficient in vitamin C, as it’s present in so many over-the -counter products, (as well as fresh fruits like oranges). However, if you do find your diet isn’t providing enough vitamin C, then:
Increase your consumption of citrus fruits (oranges, lemons, limes)
Consume more broccoli, spinach and strawberries
And take our fantastic supplement to help hair, skin and nails!
As mentioned above, the majority of Vitamin D is produced by direct absorption of sunlight onto the skin. Cholesterol in the body then converts it to vitamin D. most often made when sunlight is absorbed by your skin.
The vitamin is then transported into the body by the liver and kidneys, where it plays a role in the creation of healthy cells, producing a good skin tone. Vitamin D has also been linked in the treatment of psoriasis.
Quick ways to increase your vitamin D include:
10 – 15 minutes of exposure a day to the sun
Eating well – fortified foods like orange juice, natural yoghurt and breakfast cereals (be careful of the sugar content though)!
Eat foods naturally rich in it – like tuna, salmon and cod.
Vitamin E is an antioxidant, just like vitamin C. However, in this case, this vitamin’s job main function is protection against sun damage, by absorbing the harmful UV light that is produced by the sun.
In a healthy body, Vitamin is produced through sebum (a substance that’s oily, emitted through the pores of the skin). When sebum is produced at the right balance, it will prevent dryness and keep your skin conditioned. Dry skin will benefit from vitamin E as it will help treat skin inflammation and lack of sebum.
Most adults need about 15 mg of vitamin E per day so here are our suggestions for an increased intake:
Eat more nuts and seeds like sunflower, hazelnuts and almonds.
Use topical products that contain vitamin E and C.
And of course – take our wonderful Hair, Skin and Nails supplement.
When we have bruises or wounds, Vitamin K plays a vital part in aiding the blood to clot. Vitamin K is also thought to hep skin conditions like spider veins, scars, dark spots and stretch marks. such as stretch marks, spider veins, scars and dark spots.
It’s fairly rare to be vitamin K deficient but you can increase your intake by eating kale, lettuce, green beans and spinach. Dark leafy greens are particularly rich in this vitamin.
Vitamins – Vital For Skin Health!
Our supplement contains just the right amount of ingredients for your body’s needs. However, if you are experiencing unusual or extreme symptoms, we’d always advise a visit to the doctor before you embark upon any supplement.
If your nails are slow to grow, or in poor condition, then definitely consider this supplement. With a whole host of vitamins contained within, they’re specially targeted to help improve the hair, skin and nails.
Everyone has a particular rate at which their nails grow when healthy, and there’s nothing you can do to change that. On average, it’s around one eighth of an inch every four weeks.
Their growth is affected by hormones (think of pregnant women and how fast they grow), and even the temperature – (much faster in summer). And whilst there is no single miracle cure – a good diet and supplement can keep you functioning well, and encourage the nail’s growth to continue as normal – in a healthy manner.
“To keep nails healthy, hydrate them and minimize the use of harsh chemicals and tools,” says Marsha Gordon, M.D., associate clinical professor of dermatology and vice chairman of the dermatology department at Mount Sinai School of Medicine. Help prevent breakage with a hardener like OPI Nail Envy.
Do your nails have ridges? Or do they flake or break easily? Then consider our supplement now!
Other ways of looking after your nails you may like to consider:
Regular manicures – always file your nails in the same direction (rather than backwards and forwards), as this weakens them.
Wear gloves when dealing with chemicals – anything from washing up liquid to cleaning products.
Push back cuticles regularly and trim – this prevents sore patches developing around the nails.
And be careful when using tools!
