Amping Up Your Natural Beauty With Natural Supplements
We ladies are always on the hunt for simple ways to keep our fine selves looking, well, impossibly fine without having to sacrifice our health. Which is why I'm excited to have recently fallen in love with some natural supplements that have helped me fix and amp up my hair, nails, and skin.
So allow me to break down my top 5 favourite natural supplements so all my fellow glam queens can look and feel their very best, just in time for summer.
Biotin is one of those supplements that you may not have never heard of but is vital in helping your body stay healthy. Not only is it necessary for cell growth and the production of fatty acids, but it also helps to keep your hair, nails, and even your eyelashes, healthy and strong.
So if you have noticed an increase in the amount of hair that you shed or that your nails are breaking or cracking more often, it could be because you are lacking Biotin in your diet. Thankfully that is easy to fix as you can take Biotin as a pill or you can get a good dose of it through swiss chard or liver. I think I will stick with the pill form as liver just makes me shudder.
Cod Liver Oil Cutie
Like most fish, cod liver oil is extremely rich in omega-3, fatty acids, and vitamins A and D. This is an essential supplement for you as it helps to strengthen your bones and keep your immune system in fighting shape. On top of all of that, cod liver oil also has beauty benefits and helps to keep your skin moisturized, hydrated, and impossibly soft. Ultimately helping your skin to look younger than it is. Bonus!
Milk Thistle Mama
I'm just getting such a kick out of these names! But I digress.
Milk thistle is widely known to help care for and maintain healthy liver function but it also has some serious beauty benefits as well. It has been reported that milk thistle can help to minimize any redness on your skin, as well as reducing inflammation, while simultaneously softening your skin. Not bad for one little plant.
Yeah, I couldn't think of anything creative that started with a 'z'. * hangs head in shame*
Back to business. Zinc is popularly known to help keep your body healthy from the inside out, and not only does it help to break down and metabolize fats and proteins, but it also helps to clear up your skin thanks to its high level of antioxidants.
And thanks to those antioxidants that help to repair damaged skin cells, not only will you have clear skin but it will help to get rid of any current blemishes, while also helping to slow down the aging process of your skin.
Get Yourself Some Grape Seed Oil, Girlfriend!
Who knew that those tasty little red grapes packed such an antioxidant-fueled punch! You see, not only is grape seed oil brimming with antioxidants and moisturizing elements which help to repair your skin cells, but it can also be used for purposes such as anti-inflammatories and an anti-histamine.
And in case that wasn't enough, grape seed oil is also used in some of the most powerful anti-aging treatments and is also an anti-allergic. So not only can it help you repair your damaged skin cells due to sun damage or just regular old neglect, but it actively helps you look younger.
And that's something all of us ladies love, am I right? So if you want to boost up your natural beauty just in time for summer, grab yourself a few, or all, of these supplements and start the beautifying process from the inside out.
