12 Hacks for Fabulous, Hair, Skin & Nails

January 10, 2018

Want beautiful hair, skin and nails? 

Here at Pink Cloud Beauty Co we've got you covered!  Follow our top tips and you'll have glossy hair, strong nails and glowing skin in no time!

1. Take your supplements

Take a supplement designed for hair, skin and nails.  We use Pink Cloud Beauty Co's 3 in 1 Collagen Beauty Drink.  Designed to combat the effects of poor diet and nutrition, these handy sachets are packed full of collagen, biotin, MSM, selenium, vitamin C and vitamin E.  They contain no artificial colours or flavourings – but the best bit?  They're pink lemonade flavour! 

2. Get your hair cut! 

We know this sounds 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 mane looking its absolute best.

3. Turn the heat down 

Hairdryers, curling wands, tongs, heated rollers, straighteners – they're our best friends.  However, all that excessive heat can take it's toll on our treasured tresses.  Give your hair a day or two off – have fun with braids, ponytails or buns.  You'll thank us when you're having that extra half hour in bed in the morning!

4. Use protection 

Minds out of the gutter – we're talking about hair, skin & nails!  Sunscreen is one of the single most effective ways to protect your skin from those 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!

5. Drink plenty of water 

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.

6. Chill 

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 Consider exercise, meditation or just a bit of you time.  Go on girl, you deserve it!

7. No Smoking 

We all know about the all too horrific illnesses smoking can lead to.  But did you know smoking prematurely ages the skin, makes hair brittle and stains teeth and fingernails yellow?  So kick the habit, girl.  If nothing else, quitting will make you feel better in the long run – and smell better too.

8. Sleeping Beauty 

You only have to look in the mirror to see the effects of a bad night's sleep – red eyes, dark circles and that dull complexion.  Catching 40 winks 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.  So remember, bedtime is for sleeping - put your phone down, turn your TV off, put your tablet away and get yourself some beauty sleeep!

9. Silky smooth 

Sleep on a silk pillowcase; the material is much easier on your hair and skin because it causes less friction.  Silk glides easily so gone are the days of waking up with creases on your face and a birds nest on your head!

10. Clean up 

We tell you time and time again girls.  Take your make up off properlyNot taking your make up off before bed can lead to break outs, sore eyes, cysts, blocked pores, eye irritation but to name a few.  Cleanse, tone and moisturise and make it your daily ritual!

11. Get moving! 

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!

12. Nail biting 

Girls - nails were not a tool designed to open pop cans!  Biting and chewing can cause unsightly damage and can also weaken your nails and damage the skin around them increasing the risk of infection.
