Guest Post: Vitamins That Are Good For Your Nails, Hair And Skin

I hate taking vitamins because they upset my stomach. Before I tell you anything else I just want you to know that because there are so many people out there who are just like me for one reason or another. But the truth of the matter is that our bodies need vitamins in order to look and feel their best and we don’t get enough of them from the foods that we eat. So regardless of whether or not I like taking them I do just so that I can reap the benefits. Here are some reasons that you should bite the bullet and take them if you want healthy nails, skin and hair.
Vitamin A

Vitamin A helps with many of the skin problems that women have and can be found in vitamins and in topical creams under the name of Retinoid.
  • It works an anti-aging agent by preventing unsightly brown spots and wrinkles.
  • If your skin gets hurt or cut it helps to repair it by amping up your skin cell growth. 

Vitamin B Complex

Taking vitamin B complex is like taking a dose of every form of vitamin B (and there are many), biotin and some folic acid all at once. And so you get all of the benefits quickly and easily.

  • Helps to prevent skin cancer.
  • If fights the free radicals that our bodies face every day and helps prevent wrinkles.
  • Gives the skin a healthy glow.
  • Promotes cell reproduction.
  • Helps the body to fight infections so when you get a nail fungus this a dose of B complex will do you a world of good.
  • Makes your hair and nails stronger so that they won’t break as easily.
  • Helps to prevent hair loss.

Vitamin C

When we think of vitamin C we usually think of fighting colds, but there’s more to it.
  • Great for repairing sun damaged skin.
  • Improves the tone and texture of your skin.
  • Makes the skin firmer so that you get wrinkles and sagging at an older age.
  • Packed with antioxidants that build collagen which is good for your skin, hair and nails.
  • A great protector against free radicals that cause premature aging and hair loss.

Vitamin D

We don’t get enough of vitamin D from the sun or from our diets so taking the vitamins is highly recommended.
  • Helps the body absorb calcium which is needed to maintain healthy hair and nail growth.
Although there is one reason to take it that is related to beauty there are many other reasons that are highly important so don’t discard it.

Vitamin E

We see vitamin E promoted on many different kinds of cosmetics ranging from moisturizers to body washes and for good reason too.

  • Prevents skin cancer.
  • Helps to repair even the driest and most problematic skin disorders.
  • Makes the skin smooth.
  • Helps to soothe sun damaged skin.
  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Contains antioxidants that help it fight free radicals.
  • Promotes hair growth and prevents hair loss.
  • It makes hair softer.
  • It helps you grow stronger, longer nails.

Vitamin K

Vitamin K may be the least popular of the group but it’s by no means less important.
  • It helps to reduce the appearance of bruises on the skin.
  • It helps to reduce dark under eye circles.
  • Fight free radicals.

So regardless of whether or not I like taking them I do just so that I can reap the benefits. You should too.
