Eating right, exercising and drinking lots of water. We get it, all these things are critical for overall health, and good health results in luminous skin, shining hair, and long, strong nails. There will never be a shortcut or miracle pill that will suddenly give you the perfect version of yourself, but once you’ve (mostly) mastered the basics, it’s perfectly acceptable to include a few vitamin and minerals proven to stimulate hair growth, skin renewal, and nail bed health.
Biotin, or vitamin B7, is part of the vitamin B complex — a suite of B vitamins that covertly work together to support metabolic activity and brain function and promote healthy hair, skin, and nails. Biotin can be found in many topical skin care products but is far more effective when ingested.
Vitamin C has been shown to prevent wrinkles, improve skin’s texture, and support collagen production. Vitamin C is most effective when ingested and while an oral supplement is certainly an option, it can be found abundantly in citrus fruits and leafy greens — mandarin orange salad anyone?
Vitamin E is highly effective at keeping skin supple and soft when used topically. You can find it varied skin care products in both the drugstore and the department store at virtually every price point.
When choosing supplements, make sure to choose products without fillers and whose vitamin and minerals come from organic, plant-based sources.
