We share our top tips on how to keep your hair, skin and nails in beautiful, healthy condition.
Take a supplement designed specifically for hair, skin and nails. Our pink lemonade flavoured Beauty Drinkable Vitamins are packed full of Collagen, Biotin, MSM, Selenium, Vitamin C and Vitamin E. All hand-picked and carefully selected for their proven ability to support hair, skin and nails.
It might sound counterproductive, but in order for your hair to grow, you need to keep on top of regular trims. Getting rid of damaged, broken hair and those nasty split ends promotes healthy hair growth and keeps your hair looking its absolute best.
Hairdryers, curling wands, tongs, heated rollers, straighteners – they're an absolute essential. However, all that excessive heat can take it's toll on our treasured tresses. Give your hair a day or two off – try braids, ponytails or buns. You'll also thank us when you're having that extra half hour in bed in the morning.
First of all SPF. We can't stress this enough. Sunscreen is one of the single most effective ways to protect your skin from harmful UV rays. Look for moisturisers, primers or foundations that contain SPF to help protect against sun damage and premature aging. Use heat protection sprays and serums when styling your hair. And not forgetting your nails – cleaning dishes in hot, soapy water can weaken your nails – so wear gloves!
It is recommended we drink 8 glasses of water a day. Water makes up 60% of our bodies – every cell, tissue and organ in our body needs it to function effectively. So stay hydrated and flush out those toxins and you'll see the effects on your hair, skin and nails in no time.
Stress and anxiety can bring about unwelcome changes to our bodies from hair loss to acne. Removing these stresses is easier said than done, but taking time to wind down and relax does wonders for our outer appearance, not to mention our mental health. Consider exercise, meditation or just a bit of time out doing something you love.
We all know about the all too horrific illnesses smoking can lead to. But smoking also prematurely ages the skin; it can also make hair brittle and stains teeth and fingernails yellow. We don't need to tell you how bad smoking is for you, so if nothing else - think of all the money you'll save just by kicking the habit.
You only have to look in the mirror to see the effects of a bad night's sleep – red eyes, dark circles and a dull complexion. A good night's sleep will not only leave you feeling fully refreshed, but while you're in the land of nod, your skin cells will be working hard to build fresh, healthy cells. Establishing a proper sleep routine is really important - bedtime is for sleeping, so put your phone down, turn your TV off, put your tablet away and get yourself some beauty sleep!
Sleep on a silk pillowcase; the material is much easier on your hair and skin because it causes less friction. Silk glides easily so you'll find that you're not waking up with creases on your face or a bird's nest on your head!
We can't stress this enough. Take your make up off properly! Not taking your make up off can lead to break outs, sore eyes, cysts, blocked pores, eye irritation but to name a few. As tempting as it can be to leave your make up on after a long day, stick to a proper and thorough skincare routine to keep your skin in check.
Exercise – love it or loathe it, its essential to keep us looking and feeling our best. Whether you're training for a marathon or walking the dog, a healthy circulation will increase blood flow to your face, scalp and nail beds keeping us looking healthy and radiant!
Biting and chewing our nails can cause unsightly damage and can also weaken your nails and damage the skin around them which can lead to infection.
