Keeping our hair, skin, and nails in check can be a difficult task. It seems like we’ve tried every product imaginable and have taken every supplement under the sun. What we really need to be looking at is our diet. Instead of focusing on the outside of our appearance, we need to look inward and what we’re putting into our bodies.

 

According to Dr. Debra Wattenberg, a New York City dermatologist at NY Skin Rx, “If you don’t have enough protein, you can end up having hair that is dry and thinner. Protein is the building block for ... keratin.” Besides protein for our hair, we need other vitamins and minerals to keep our skin and nails healthy as well.

 

Here are 4 foods that are great for keeping your hair, skin, and nails in tip top shape:
