Are you wondering why your hair lacks luster or seems a little dull and lifeless? Are you frustrated that your nails break at the drop of a dime? And what about your skin? Can’t seem to attain that balanced glow of radiance that you really want? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may be closer to a solution than you think.
Yes, you have likely heard it a thousand times: You are what you eat. But you’re also what you drink and even how you sleep!Although it might sound a bit cliché it really is true and believe it or not, it is the best “non-secret” to healthy hair, skin, and nails.Simply put, it all comes down to being kind and loving to your own body. Now for the busy, modern diva, walking this out may require some pre-planning before hitting the aisles of the grocery store and even shifting of your normal routine, but ultimately it will be worth it. Though changes may not happen overnight, your body soon will reward you with healthy, glowing skin and hair and strong nails. The key is just getting started, and we have a few easy tips to help you begin:
#1 Sleep more
Ample rest really is the foundation of overall health, ensuring your body will have the time and energy needed to replenish itself. Did you know that skin is constantly renewing itself? According to goodskinhealth.org skin renews itself from the bottom up and takes 52 – 77 days to shed cells. Yep. Sounds like a reason to sleep to me!
#2Eat a balanced diet
A lack of nutrients inside your body sooner or later will show up in your skin. According to WebMD, experts agree that a healthy diet with the right mix of protein, iron, and other nutrients can help improve the health, look, and feel of your hair. Hair and nails are composed of mostly protein, which means they need protein to grow. Make sure your diet includes hearty portions of protein-rich foods like salmon, spinach, eggs and Greek yogurt. Yummy!
#3 Squeeze in a little exercise
Besides improving your overall mental and physical health, finding time to work-out can also yield benefits for your tresses and skin. According to livestrong.com, exercise can be especially helpful in mitigating conditions that hormone imbalances contribute to, such as polycystic ovary syndrome, in which women suffer unwanted hair, as well as in improving conditions such as diabetes, which can lead to hair loss. Additionally, sweating opens your pores and allows for release of toxins. And while you are at it, don’t forget to drink plenty of water to stay hydrated, which will yield additional benefits.
So, though it may be shocking that the hair, skin, and nail fabulousness you seek isn’t in the latest bottled supplement craze, an over-priced salon service, or even a medical procedure, this news can actually be a relief to your pocket. Instead, think of adding these elements as the icing on the cake and keep it simple by first looking good from the inside out.
