We all want healthy skin and hair. Many of us would kill for the flawless, glowing skin and impeccable hair that we see on our favorite celebrities.
But how do we get that? How can we possibly get that look and result for ourselves without being celebrities?
Believe it or not, there are two proven ways you can improve the look and health of your hair and your skin using tried-and-true techniques and nutrients. Here’s more must-have information to look even better than you do now.
Water: the Way to Glowing Skin
Ashy, dry skin is not fun. Neither is acne. Is there a solution?
Many celebrities claim flawless, healthy skin comes from drinking lots of water. Can we take their word for it? There are not many studies done to examine the effects of water consumption on skin health, because water is not a commodity cosmetology companies can bottle up and put on the market.
However, most dermatologists claim that water does make a difference. Proper water intake causes skin to look fuller, pores to look smaller, and wrinkles to be less obvious. Why? Properly hydrated skin is simply healthier than dehydrated skin.
Dehydrated skin is more prone to acne and leaves pores and wrinkles unfilled. Without water your skin is more likely to become dry and irritated. Beyond the simple science of it, collagen in your skin requires water to do its job, which is to hydrate and plump up your skin, maintaining its elasticity.
Your body has the capacity to absorb only a certain amount of water per hour. The rest of the water will pass through you before even lubricating your organs and hydrating your body. Therefore, a steady flow of water spread out over the week is the best way to go.
Steps to Healthier Hair
In addition to water for your skin, there are nutrients you can take in for healthier hair.
If you want great hair, try oysters! These aphrodisiacs we all love are a good source of zinc which helps with cell renewal. This keeps your hair and nails strong and healthy.
Along with oysters, walnuts provide many benefits for you hair. Walnuts include nutrients like vitamin E and fatty acids – the good kind like omega-3. Try adding some walnuts to your daily diet.
Citrus fruits are also very good for collagen and healthy hair. Citrus contains vitamin C, so fruits like strawberries and oranges and vegetables like bell peppers are good for you! In addition to vitamin C, iron is important for healthy growth. Iron keeps your hair from shedding and also from breaking.
Another essential vitamin for hair growth is biotin. Biotin can be found in many delicious foods – raspberries, eggs, avocado, salmon, peanuts, dairy products, and meats. There are also biotin supplements available if you don’t think you get enough from your daily diet. Biotin leads to longer, faster growing, stronger hair.
