They say that beauty is only skin deep, and while there may be some truth to that old adage, healthy radiant skin begins from within. No matter how much product you put on your face and body, or how much it costs, if you are not giving your body the nutrients it needs to grow healthy skin cells and collagen, no amount of beauty products will make it look better.
Nutrients essential to healthy skin, hair and nails include:
- Water: Pure filtered water plumps up skin cells to reduce wrinkles and make you look radiant while protecting you from skin conditions like acne and psoriasis
- Glutathione: Found in sulfur-rich foods like garlic and onions, and cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, kale, collards, cabbage, cauliflower, and watercress
- Vitamin C: Found in citrus fruits, peppers, strawberries, Brussel sprouts, broccoli, mangos and kiwi
- B-Complex Vitamins: Found in animal proteins like eggs, fish, meat and dairy
Magnesium: Found in spinach, almonds, black beans, avocados and chocolate
In addition to water and nutrients, healthy skin also comes from exercise, which improves circulation and enhances the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to your skin cells. And despite its potential to damage your skin if you overdo it, responsible exposure to sunlight helps keep your skin clear and healthy, and enables it to perform its important function of manufacturing Vitamin D.
It is interesting to note that nutrients that promote collagen production for your skin, hair and nails also support healthy joints, which rely on collagen to maintain healthy levels of cartilage.
Why Diet and Supplements May Not Be Enough
It would be difficult if not impossible for most people to consume all the foods listed above to obtain optimal nutrient levels for healthy skin, hair and nails. Not only that, but Vitamin C and the B-Complex vitamins are water-soluble, meaning that your body uses what it needs and the rest are flushed out. Unlike fat-soluble vitamins, they are not stored in your body for future use.
Oral supplements may help, but they often pass through your digestive tract without being completely absorbed. In fact, they sometimes pass right through without being broken down at all.
Vitamin IV Therapy for Healthy Skin, Hair and Nails
One way to ensure you get maximal levels of all the nutrients your skin needs while attaining optimal hydration is micronutrient IV therapy.
During a therapy session, a Natural Beauty Cocktail (hair skin and nails vitamins)
is infused directly into your blood stream, where nutrients are rapidly carried to your skin cells. At the same time, hydrating fluids enter thirsty cells, carrying with them oxygen and nutrients for maximal effect.
