Beauty Nutrition is not a new thing, we all know that if you have a diet full of fresh fruit and vegetables, high quality protein and fats your skin and general appearance will be at optimum levels. How many of us wake up with spots after a greasy takeaway or puffy eyes after a drinking session? So its a known fact that eating healthy equals looking and feeling at your best.
How about beauty supplements then? Here is the controversy. Some people say that they are a waste of money and all they do is to create expensive pee. Others swear by their daily tablets that can help them supplement efficiently their diet and it shows in the quality of their skin and hair.
Personally i am all for supplementing my diet with vitamins and minerals, fish oils and other natural extracts that promise to complement my diet. I am by no means a 100% clean eater nor do i want to be, i have a good knowledge about nutrition and my favorite thing to eat is a colorful salad.
Hair Growth – PERFECTIL and VIVISCAL
Yes, im taking them both because after my pregnancy i experienced severe hair loss not only on my head, but completely loosing my eyelashes and eyebrows. Whilst my hair responded so well to the supplements and its back to its initial glory, im yet to see a change in my eyelashes and eyebrows. Its due to my thyroid imbalances that still are playing havoc in my body, so im hoping that eventually i will see a regrowth.
If you are looking to give your hair a boost, do try them with confidence they do work. Just be prepared to shave or wax much more often!
Glowing Skin – FOUNTAIN THE GLOW MOLECULE
I’ve been taking the Fountain The Glow Molecule supplement for a month and legit, after just two weeks of supplementing ive started getting compliments on my skin, online and in real life. Two tea spoons of The Glow Molecule will give you a shot of Glutathione and Hyaluronic Acid, meant to restore brightness and a youthful glow to the skin. You can mix it with water or juice, i personally like the taste and texture and just take it as it is.
You will probably wonder just like i did, what the heck is Glutathione and what it does. Glutathione is a compound involved as a coenzyme in oxidation–reduction reactions in cells. It is a tripeptide derived from glutamic acid, cysteine, and glycine.
Glutathione is involved in many processes in the body, including tissue building and repair, making chemicals and proteins needed in the body, and for the immune system. It helps to de age the body from the inside out, not only beautifying us but helping with chronic fatigue and improving memory. On the other hand, Hyaluronic Acid hydrates the body from within and helps the skin retain more moisture, which makes it look plumper and bouncier.
Thyroid Support – PHARMANORD SELENIUM
Selenium is an antioxidant which may help with the thyroid function, by decreasing inflammation and fighting the free radicals. It also helps the normal growth of hair, nails and skin by improving the blood flood in the body. If your diet is rich in brazil nuts, eggs, liver and sunflower seeds, you probably dont need to supplement at all. If its not or you suffer from an autoimmune condition like myself, its a good idea to supplement for a month and see if there are any improvements. As always, i recommend PharmaNord products due to the affordability and high quality ingredients.
Anti-inflammation – PUKKA TURMERIC CAPSULES
I have a lengthy post highlighting the benefits of Turmeric, being tea, spicy curry or capsules, so im not going to go in too many details again (You can read it here). In a nutshell, the Curcumin that is found in Turmeric is a real help in treating inflammation in the body, has antioxidant properties, delay aging and prevent the visible signs of it. So not only healthy, but beautifying too.
Are you pro or against a beauty supplement? Would love to hear your thoughts!
