Thankfully, there are vitamins and supplements you can take to protect them from the cold and keep them strong and healthy all year long.
Holistic beauty and nutrition expert Paula Simpson gave us her favorite supplements for healthy hair, skin, and nails. She even broke down which ingredients we should look out for when we hit the aisles. Looks like we're going to have the strongest and healthiest hair, skin, and nails this season!
For Healthy Hair
Ouai is known for its outstanding and high-quality hair products, so it's no surprise that they also have the best supplements for healthy hair. These supplements are filled with omega-3 fatty acids, iron, and silica that feed hair follicles with hydrating nutrients, giving you strong and shiny hair. "Omega-3 fatty acids [are] an essential component for shiny, sleek hair. Getting a dose of healthy fats daily can prevent thinning hair, hydrate the scalp, and strengthen the follicles to promote a natural shine," Simpson says.
For Healthy Skin
"Zeaxanthin [is] one of the few naturally derived antioxidants clinically proven to reach skin tissue when taken orally as a dietary supplement," Simpson says. "This super antioxidant helps to protect skin from environmental aggressors such as UV exposure and pollution, even skin tone, and encourage overall radiance." She recommends ZSS Radiant Skin Supplements to get healthy, youthful skin.
For Healthy Nails
"Silica is a non-essential mineral that's important for strengthening weak, brittle nails. The combination of silica and mineral salts in Horsetail, a highly absorbent plant, make it effective as a re-mineralizer of bones and connective tissues," Simpson explains. So, what does she recommend for healthy nails? No, it's not a biotin supplement... Instead, she suggests having a cup of Celebration Herbals Organic Hops Tea!
