The old saying, “Beauty is only skin deep,” could not be further from the truth. Radiant beauty begins with good health, supported by a foundation of healthy nutrition. Without the building blocks for healthy skin, hair and nails, no amount of cosmetics or topical treatments can produce healthy cells. Growth and repair of skin, hair and nail cells begin from within.
Meet Your Integumentary System
To achieve optimal health in any system of your body, it helps to know a little bit about how it functions. Your integumentary system encompasses your skin, hair and nails, all of which are technically organs. In fact, your skin is the largest organ in your entire body.
Your integumentary organs do a lot more than make you look gorgeous. They protect your body from the elements and microorganisms, provide insulation to maintain optimal body temperature, and send and receive sensory information to your brain about your surrounding environment. In addition, your finger and toenails protect your sensitive digits while doubling as useful tools for scratching, digging and more.
With all the work your integumentary system does, you can see how important it is to give your integumentary organs the nutritional building blocks they need to build and repair healthy cells.
Let’s break it down by organ, to see which nutrients help the most:
As the outermost layer of your body, your skin is the most exposed to the environment. Its job is to protect all your other body systems from harm by providing insulation, regulating body temperature, preventing water loss, synthesizing Vitamin D and producing melanin to protect your body from excess UV light.
Your epidermis, the top layer of your skin, is made up of cells called keratinocytes, which produce the resilient fibrous protein keratin. The inner layer of your skin, called the dermis, is thicker, and attaches to the outer layer with collagen fibers. Keratin and collagen work together to keep your skin smooth, strong and elastic. When collagen begins to break down, it leads to wrinkles and aging skin.
Your skin is continually shedding old cells and making new ones. The growth of healthy skin cells relies heavily on biotin, or Vitamin B7, along with protein, to produce keratin and collagen cells. The richest food sources of biotin are pasture-raised eggs and grass-fed organ meats, like liver. Protein and bone broth from sustainably raised animal sources help your cells make collagen, which forms the skin’s matrix. Healthy skin also needs antioxidant vitamins A, C and E, along with ample amounts of Vitamin D from sunlight exposure.
Like your skin, your hair helps to protect your body from the elements. It insulates your skin and protects it from UV damage, and keeps out pathogens and dust by lining your nose and ears, and fringing your eyelids. Your eyebrows and eyelashes protect your eyes from dust, dirt and environmental irritants. Your body hair provides sensory information to your brain.
The hair on your head to which you devote so much time treating and styling is made up of mostly dead cells filled with keratin. The strength and elasticity of your hair fibers depends largely on how well they were nourished before they grew out of their follicles in your dermis. Like your skin, healthy hair relies on protein, collagen, biotin and antioxidants.
Likewise, your finger and toenails are made up of dead keratinocytes filled with keratin. New nail cells are produced at the base of your nail plate, which is fed by a highly vascular nail bed. Keratin makes your nails both tough and flexible, so they can protect your finger and toe tips from injury and resist breakage. Your nails provide useful tools and enhance the sensation in your fingertips. Again, biotin is a key nutrient for nail health.
