Nutritionist Rates 9 Popular Hair, Skin, and Nail Remedies

Do you care about your appearance?

Got sagging skin? Wrinkly skin?

Either you’re like most of us and you do care about beauty and looking healthy, or you’ve somehow transcended or managed to ignore it.

The bottom line is that when your body is healthy, your outer appearance (skin, hair, and nails) will reflect your inner health. Even at mature ages, you can still have a vibrant and healthy appearance!

Use Natural Remedies!

Your skin often reflects the health of your inner body. After all, your skin is your body’s largest organ.

The difference between it and many other organs is that it’s visible to the world. That’s why it’s so important to treat your body well. That inner wellness will transfer to your skin’s appearance.

And what’s the best way to holistically improve your whole body health and skin health?  Natural remedies! By supplementing with specific natural compounds and changing your diet, you can change your skin physiology for the better and make a BIG difference in the way your skin looks.

You just have to know the right remedies to use. This article will give you a glimpse into some effective remedies (and some that are not quite as effective).

Here’s the list:

Natural Cosmetic Remedies: Rated

1. Hydrolyzed Collagen (For Skin Appearance)

Supplementing with hydrolyzed collagen is a straightforward way to increase the amount of collagen in your skin, making your skin look firmer and less wrinkled.

Hydrolyzed collagen is usually sourced from bovine cartilage and “hydrolyzed” refers to the collagen being broken down into its component amino acids that make up the collagen protein.

When you take these amino acids that are in collagen, your body produces more of its own collagen. After weeks of using hydrolyzed collagen, skin elasticity and moisture improves 1. Other studies have demonstrated a reduction in wrinkles 2. Although it won’t quite make you look 60 years younger, it does make a substantial improvement (that scientists have measured) in skin appearance and can help rebuild your skin infrastructure.

2. Eat High-Protein Meals (For Skin Appearance)

Be careful about this one. It's true that you need to eat enough protein to build the proteins in your skin - proteins like collagen and keratin that make your skin firm, smooth, and plump.

But some types of dietary protein can actually do harm to your skin. Unfortunately, meat that is cooked at high temperatures (like grilled, barbecued, and even baked) has high amounts of toxic substances called AGEs that can destroy and mutilate the collagen in your skin. When you eat

foods that are filled with AGEs (advanced glycation end-products), a portion are absorbed by the body and accumulate in your tissues, including your skin 3!

Your best bet to avoid too many AGEs is to eat plant based proteins like legumes, vegetables, and raw nuts. You can also cook meat at lower temperatures and in the presence of moisture (like marinated or boiled meat). It has less AGEs that way.

3. Zinc (For Hair Growth)

It’s not a miracle mineral that will suddenly transform baldness into a mullet, but it is a fundamental building block for hair. The enzymes that build your hair shafts need it, and research shows that baldness is often linked to zinc deficiency 4. In addition, supplementation can improve hair growth in those who are zinc deficient 4.

4. Hyaluronic Acid (For Skin Appearance)

Pretty impressive stuff. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a structural component of skin. It moisturizes and gives youthful volume to your appearance. Luckily, you can supplement directly with HA. You can take it internally and have it plump up your skin!

Hyaluronic acid is also in many skin lotions. It works whether you take it internally (in supplement form) or topically.

Studies have shown that oral supplementation “significantly diminished wrinkles,” significantly improved “skin luster and suppleness,” and moisturized dry skin 5,6. Studies suggest that it really works in real people!

5. Biotin (For Nail Growth)

Also known as vitamin B7, biotin is crucial for the maintenance of healthy hair, nails, and skin because it is involved in generating the proteins in these body parts 7.

Research has shown that biotin supplementation improves the quality of people’s nails, at least in those that have problems growing healthy nails or have “brittle nail[s]” 8. There’s not enough research to show that biotin improves nail growth in everyone, beyond those with nail disorders, but it potentially could 8.

6. Fish Oil (For Skin Appearance and Hair Growth)

We know that the omega 3 fats EPA and DHA in fish are good for the brain, heart, and other parts of the body. You might not know that they’re good for skin as well.

EPA and DHA are important for suppressing inflammation in the skin, reinforcing the skin’s structure, and healing wounds 9. Research suggests that fish oil’s effects on skin are more subtle than hydrolyzed collagen or hyaluronic acid, but it does help moisturize skin and incorporate healthy fats into your skin 12.

Fish oil does appear to reduce hair loss in women, and there’s some evidence that it may actually stimulate hair growth 10,11.

7. Selenium (For Skin)

The fact that a humble mineral, selenium, can help your skin look youthful should hammer home the fact that nutrition plays a big role in skin health.

Selenium is important for the antioxidant protection of your skin and the growth of keratinocytes, cells that produce the strengthening keratin protein for the outer layer of the skin 13. It’s a good nutrient to add to your arsenal!

8. Avoid Processed Sugary Foods (For Skin Appearance)

Instead of taking a supplement or eating a specific food, this remedy involves cutting out processed sugar from your diet. No soft drinks, candy, or any food with sugar added to it is allowed. That might sound boring, but it’s one of the most effective remedies there is for the skin.

Only foods that have natural sugars in them that are bound up with healthy fiber and antioxidants are allowed. If you’re craving sweets, have a bit of fruit. It should be sweet enough if your taste buds are craving the right things.

Sugar actually damages the collagen in your skin. It attaches to proteins like collagen and makes them stiff and malformed. The aftereffect is that your skin will lose its youthful firmness and elasticity. That’s why cutting out sugary foods is so effective at preserving the youthfulness of your skin!

9. Coconut Oil (For Skin Appearance)

Coconut oil is a nice and simple topical aid for your skin. It’s a natural way to moisturize, and it won’t have any potentially toxic chemicals in it.

Research shows that it actually might boost the number of collagen-producing cells in your skin in addition to moisturizing and adding UV protection to your skin 14.

You may not think that your hair, skin and fingernails have much in common -- but they absolutely do. Brittle nails, limp, lackluster hair and sagging skin can all be tell-tale signs that your body needs a little...PEP.

The PEP Method, recently devised by scientists and researchers, has clinically demonstrated its effectiveness on parts of the body most affected by oxidative stress. Our skin being the largest organ in the body, it makes sense that signs of oxidative stress would show here first -- in the form of fine lines, wrinkles, dryness...tired skin that’s lost its youthful glow and “bounce”.

But the good news is, these signs can be reversed. Click here to learn more...
