There are hundreds, if not thousands of vitamins and supplements out in the market place today, but which are the best vitamins for hair, skin and nails? There’s so much information out there, it can be difficult to know where to start.
Don’t worry, help is at hand. Here at Pink Cloud Beauty Co., we've handpicked 6 of the best tried and tested and scientifically-backed vitamins and minerals that you need to be taking for healthy hair, glowing skin and strong nails.
Marine Collagen is a fibrous protein extracted from the scales or meat of fish, including cod and salmon. Marine collagen is mostly made up of type 1 collagen, which is the building block for our tissues, bones and skin. Studies show that taking a daily supplement containing collagen improves hair dryness, dullness and nail peeling. It is rapidly becoming a firm favourite over beef and pork collagens because of it's bioavailability, which means our bodies absorb it better. Our body’s own collagen production declines over time, and is also affected by daily stresses, so it is vitally important that we kick-start and maintain collagen levels to keep our skin smooth, supple and radiant.
Methylsulfonylmethane, or MSM is a naturally occurring sulphur found in meat and vegetables. We need this sulphur in our bodies for a whole manner of reasons, but we’re getting less than ever before because of less nutrient rich soil (which means less nutrient rich vegetables), and our over-reliance on processed foods. Hailed by many a beauty aficionado as "nature’s beauty mineral," it boosts keratin production, which is essential for thick luscious hair, and strong nails.
We all know how important it is to get Vitamin C in our diets, but it’s not just the stuff in oranges that promises to help you fight off colds. This powerful antioxidant fights off free-radicals protecting our skin and hair from damage caused by the stresses of our daily lives. Vitamin C also helps our bodies to produce and maintain collagen which as we know is vital in keeping our skin glowing and radiant.
Vitamin E has long been hailed as a beauty hero and is the key ingredient in anything from moisturising magic cream to under eye serums. We focus so much on applying things to our bodies, we forget that what we put into our bodies is equally as important. Vitamin E is found in foods rich in healthy fats like avocados and hazelnuts and protects our cells from oxidative stress. Scientific research shows that it stimulates hair growth and help nails to grow stronger and straighter.
Biotin also known as Vitamin B7 is a complex B vitamin found in eggs, spinach and sweet potatoes. Arguably the beauty industry’s best kept secret, Biotin, or Vitamin B7, is known to make hair thicker and stronger, also nourishing the follicles to boost growth. It's beauty boosting properties don't stop at hair health, it can also help to make nails stronger, thicker and reduce splitting.
There are trillions of cells in our bodies that constantly work hard to fight damaging compounds known as free-radicals, or oxidants. These nasties are part of our daily environment in anything from smoke to air pollution. Selenium is a powerful antioxidant which helps in the fight to combat free radicals which can cause oxidative stress, damaging our cells. This anti-inflammatory agent is a wonder for both hair and nails, making it an essential beauty supplement.
