As they say, beauty starts from the inside out. You can spend thousands of dollars on different oils and lotions and serums for your hair, skin, and nails, hoping any of them make a difference in your beauty regimen, but the truth is that most of them won’t work without proper nutritional support.
Want to know what does work?
Your skin isn’t dull because you haven’t put shine serum on it; it’s dull because it doesn’t have the nutrients to make it lustrous. Same thing with your nails — they’re not breaking or peeling because you didn’t paint them this week; they’re breaking because they don’t have the nutrients they need to make them strong.
Many of the attributes we find beautiful — healthy hair, skin, nails, eyes, teeth, gums, etc. — look beautiful to us because they look healthy. And the convenient thing is that many of them belong to the same bodily system. Meaning, if you promote good health in one, you’ll find good health in the others. For example, by nourishing your skin with the proper nutrients to make it smooth and supple, you’ll also be nourishing your hair and making it bouncier and thicker.
Keeping your system well-stocked with nutrients that build health from the inside-out promotes the good health that we all find radiantly beautiful.
So what are these nutrients that promote beauty?
Here are the 5 nutrients you should be stocking up on to look (and feel) your best:
It’s no surprise MSM has come to be regarded as “the beauty mineral.” An acronym for Methylsulfonylmethane, MSM is a compound of sulphur found in certain foods. Many people take this nutrient in supplement form to see improvements in the elasticity and hydration of their skin, as well as to even their skin tone. MSM also stimulates cell turnover and boosts the production of collagen and keratin — processes which do wonders to promote healthy, glowing hair and skin and strong nails. But MSM is a chemical compound, not a food, so it has side effects. When you eat the foods containing MSM, your body does not experience the side effects.
Vitamin E, also known as alpha-tocopherol, is vital to cellular function, which means that it has an extraordinary impact on the health of such skin, hair, and nails — all of which require cell turnover to look their best. As antioxidants, vitamin E-containing foods protect you by combatting free radicals that would otherwise damage the cells of your skin, nails, or hair, then it works to restore already damaged cells to good health and replenish any lost moisture. As an added benefit, vitamin E foods also increase circulation in the scalp, stimulating thicker hair growth.
Phosphorus and Calcium
Calcium and Phosphorus are the two most prevalent minerals in the human body, and the two are highly beneficial in nourishing the body when kept in balance — If there is a surplus of either phosphorus or calcium, health problems can result. Minerals exist within a careful biochemical balance within your body. When consumed together in the proper ratio, calcium and phosphorus foods produce a number of beauty benefits. Phosphorous is responsible for promoting the growth, maintenance, and repair of all tissues and cells. And it filters out the toxins to make room for new and healthy cells in every part of the body, including your skin, hair, and nails. Calcium, as is fairly well-known, is necessary for strong teeth and gums, but it is also essential for healthy hair and nails and the repair of all damaged tissue. Additionally, calcium plays a major role in beautiful skin, helping to clear blemishes and rejuvenate it when it becomes dull and tired-looking.
A little-known secret is that having bouncing hair and supple skin is contingent on having healthy hormones. When your hormonal system is out of balance, your skin is apt to age faster or break out more easily; collagen production slows, and hair and nails become more brittle. A zinc deficiency can easily result in a hormonal imbalance, which means that replenishing the body’s supply of zinc can help clear up acne, prevent wrinkles, reduce cellulite, and build strong and healthy hair.
The cosmetic industry brings in billions of dollars every year, with each item sold, promising to make your hair look shinier, your skin more glowing, and so forth. Most of the time, though, these products create other damage (especially if they are made of synthetic chemicals) — throwing pH levels off, causing breakouts, making your hair too oily or your nails too brittle.
There’s no reason to put your body through the ringer when all it needs are the right nutrients to balance it out and enhance its natural beauty — the beauty you have already.
