Let good health shine through your skin, hair and nails
There’s a reason soft, smooth skin; thick, shiny hair; and strong nails are desirable and attractive to us – they are indicators of good health. When our nails start to become brittle and hair goes limp, it’s only natural to worry, not only from a superficial viewpoint, but from a health perspective, too.
These keratin-rich parts of the body can give us a sneak-peak of our overall health, so make sure you’re getting all the vitamins and nutrients your body needs to keep them looking beautiful – and keep you feeling good – with Holland & Barrett’s Vitamins for Hair, Skin and Nails.
What are the essential minerals and vitamins for hair?
Whether you have an unruly mane of curls or sleek, straight tresses, all types of hair need certain vitamins to look their best. Here are some of the best hair growth vitamins:
Biotin: most of the best hair supplements for growth include biotin, named after the Ancient Greek work ‘biotos’ which means ‘sustenance’ or ‘life’. It is a B vitamin that contributes to the maintenance of normal hair and skin – helping to keep it shiny and healthy.
Zinc: it’s important to get enough zinc through your diet or supplements for skin and hair health. You can find it in every body cell, including the hair, where it is used to help support healthy hair growth and keep the oil glands surrounding the follicles working.
What are the essential minerals and vitamins for skin?
Niacin: also known as vitamin B3, niacin is a water-soluble vitamin the body cannot store that aids normal skin and normal function of mucous membranes.
Riboflavin: aka vitamin B2, riboflavin is involved in the mucus secretion of the skin
Vitamin A: there are 2 forms of vitamin A: retinoids and carotenoids.
Vitamin C: this vitamin is essential for the production of collagen, which can be found in our hair, skin, nails, bones, joints and many other parts of the body.
What are the essential minerals and vitamins for nails?
Strong nails not only help us with everyday tasks (expert sticker peelers know), they look a whole lot better than brittle ones, too.
Selenium: an essential mineral, selenium cannot be made by the body and must be obtained through our diets or supplements. This antioxidant can be found in foods like oysters and brazil nuts and can help maintain healthy nails and hair by helping the body rid itself of free radicals and aiding vitamin C function.
