How can I keep my skin and hair healthy?

Skin and hair health is largely dependent on your diet and nutrition.

When undergoing a life change, dealing with stress, or taking weight loss medications, it can be hard to maintain a balanced diet. You might start to notice changes in your skin and hair health, like dry and shedding hair, sagging skin, and weak and brittle nails.

There are several key nutrients known to play a role in skin and hair health. These micronutrients are found in many types of food such as:

· Healthy fats: nuts and seeds, avocados, olive oil

· Protein: fish, chicken, brisket

· Iron: leafy greens, beans, tofu

· Vitamins C & E: carrots, oranges, eggs, bell peppers

By eating foods with healthy fats, protein, iron, and vitamins, you can keep your hair, skin, and nails feeling healthy. You can also add collagen and biotin supplements to your diet, key nutrients that can help support skin and hair health.

Frequently Asked Questions

Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies. It supports the health of our hair, skin, nails, bones, and joints. It even helps improve skin elasticity and hydration. Several studies have shown how taking collagen peptides for a few months supports joints, both in young adulthood as well as in middle-age.

Collagen is found largely in animal products, like meat and fish. If you don’t have many animal products in your diet, it can be hard to get enough collagen. To increase your collagen intake, you could try taking a collagen peptides supplement to help support your hair, skin, nails, bones, and joints.

If you’re pregnant, lactating or have a medical condition, consult your physician before using collagen peptides.

Biotin is a B vitamin- vitamin B7. Like collagen, biotin helps support hair, skin, and nails. Biotin can be found in foods such as:

· Egg yolks

· Sweet potatoes

· Avocados

· Salmon

Many people get enough biotin just from maintaining a well-balanced diet. However, for people taking weight loss medications, a supplement might be more efficient.

To support healthy hair, skin, and nails, you can incorporate collagen peptides and biotin in your everyday routine.*
