Eat Healthy For Great Skin, Hair And Nails
We have a question. Do you want great skin, hair and nails? Ok, that’s probably not a REAL question. The real question is who DOESN’T want great skin, hair and nails? Enough of the questions, though. Achieving great beauty features takes time and effort and a combination of using the right products along with consistency. If you’ve been doing your best at maintaining a healthy skin, hair and nail routine and feel like you’re struggling to get to the next level of health in these areas eating a few specific foods may be the answer you’re looking for. Research has shown that what we put IN our bodies has just as big of an impact, as what we put on the outside. It’s time to eat healthy for great skin, hair and nails-and we’re sharing WHAT you should be eating to do that.
Sure, they taste sweet and great, but they’re loaded with great nutrients that can help your skin, hair AND nails. Because blueberries are such a rich source of antioxidants they help to add protection to all of these areas and cells in the body. In addition to adding protection in general, antioxidants play a huge role in protecting our bodies (hair, skin and nails) from the damage that free radicals often cause.
We often hear about eating almonds as a healthy snack when you’re on a weight loss journey, but they’re loaded with other powerful nutrients which have been found to help hair and nails. In short, almonds are a great source of protein and magnesium. Our hair and nails need both of these nutrients in order to maintain their health and strength.
Omega-3 Rich Foods
Omega-3 fatty acids are incredible for our bodies in so many ways, including our skin, hair and nails. Omega-3’s have been found to help reduce inflammation in the body as well as provide moisture to these areas of our bodies from the inside out. In case you didn’t know, moisture is something we NEED in our skin, hair and nails in order for them to maintain their health. You’ve likely noticed that when any of these areas are dry, they become brittle and damaged in appearance (and health). Which is why omega-3’s are so incredible for all of these areas, and really adding that moisture sources internally helps to give a solid boost.
This may seem obvious, but we can’t stress enough how important it is that you stay hydrated by drinking enough water. Sure, there are great, healthy foods that help to add hydration into the body, but nothing beats drinking plenty of water. Water and drinking enough of it for your body helps to maintain skin health, hair health and nail health. At the end of the day it comes down to our bodies as a whole needing enough hydration INTERALLY to be able to function in a way that allows all of these areas to maintain their health and flush out toxins.
