Beauty // 5 Ways to Restore Damaged Hair, Skin and Nails

The winter weather and short days can leave you feeling sluggish, and often your hair, skin and nails will begin to suffer. Some simple tips and tricks will have you looking and feeling your best again in no time at all – carry on reading to find out more!

Stay hydrated

We’ve all heard how important it is to drink water, but we often don’t end up doing it. Make sure to get your 8 glasses a day, and swap out fizzy drinks or sugary beverages for a glass of water. You’ll notice a difference in how you feel in no time! To make it more interesting, try flavouring your water with cucumber or apple slices, or even citrus fruits.

Eat healthy fats

Healthy fats are essential for health, and can give your hair and skin a helping hand too. Omega 3 fatty acids not only contribute to normal brain function and a healthy heart, but more and more research points to the anti-inflammatory properties of Omega 3. This may benefit both skin and joints. Try eating more omega 3 rich food, such as fish, walnuts and chia seeds to up your intake.

Boost your iron intake

Us ladies are prone to being a little low on iron thanks to our monthly cycle, and this can have a real impact on our hair, skin and nails. If you’re iron deficient, you may notice symptoms such as thinning hair, pale skin or brittle nails. Boost your iron intake by eating foods naturally rich in this mineral, such as green leafy vegetables, liver or fortified cereals. Even better, eat these iron-rich foods along with Vitamin C for increased absorption. Drink a glass of orange juice with your bolognese to help up your intake of this key mineral.

Add a supplement to your daily routine

For an extra boost, consider adding a supplement to your daily routine that will support skin, hair and nail health. Products such as Perfectil from Vitabiotics provide essential vitamins and minerals to help you look and feel great from the inside out.

Get a check up

If you’re still feeling a little sluggish as spring approaches, and your hair or skin are looking a bit dull, it’s worth booking an appointment with your GP for a check up. They’ll be able to order tests to check for common conditions such as anaemia or thyroid issues.

These easy tips and tricks will have you looking and feeling great in no time!
