The Best Vitamins and Supplements for Healthy Skin, Hair and Nails

If you suffer from acne and occasional break outs, are starting to see some fine lines and wrinkles or just want healthy, shinier hair then get ready for my round up list of favorite vitamins and supplements for healthy skin, hair and nails. I’ve been trying products for many years to grow my hair and nails long and strong. As a person who has battled with hormonal acne for most of my teens, 20’s and even in my 30’s I’m also always testing out products to help keep my skin clear of blemishes and reduce oil. Here are my favorite products that I have been using religiously for the last few years. I was not sponsored to talk about any of these products, I’ve bought them over and over again with my own money and really have found them to all work really well together as part of my daily routine.

Favorite Vitamins & Supplements:

For Hair & Nails: Viviscal taken once daily, BioSil taken 2 times daily, omega 3 fish oil

For Skin: Zinc tablets 2 times daily, Hydroplenish 2 times daily, Alive gummy multivitamin for women, resveratrol 250mg

For Overall Health: Ultimate 10 probiotics once daily, extra strength green tea extract, Tonalin CLA, magnesium powder

When it comes to keeping my skin clear here are some of my tips:

  • Wash your skin in the morning and in the evening with a natural cleanser. Do not over wash your skin since this will strip it of moisture and cause it to over produce oil to put the moisture back into the skin. I like to use Burt’s Bee’s Peach and Willowbark to remove dead skin cells and clean out my pores.
  • After washing my skin I like to use a little Witch Hazel to tone and take off any left over dirt, makeup and oil with a cotton pad.
  • After washing your face, pat it dry with a clean, soft towel and then apply an oil free moisturizer to put the moisture back in. I like to use natural or organic products on my skin since it seems to respond so much better to them and not break out.
  • If you have blemish already above the skin, or if you feel one coming on under the skin, I use Mario Bodescu drying lotion. Just put a tiny amount on a Q-tip and dab it on and leave it on overnight. Those angry blemishes will calm by morning.
  • Drink lots and lots of water. I realized one week when on vacation where I didn’t drink much water at all my skin hated me. It broke out like crazy and as soon as I forced myself to drink more it got so much better. If you stop drinking water your skin will be dehydrated and won’t shed easily so your pores will get clogged up, causing breakouts.
  • For makeup during the week I keep it simple and use Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue instead of a heavy liquid foundation. This gives me coverage but lets my skin breathe. If I need concealer I use the Bare Minerals Concealer Stick called Blemish Remedy which has blemish fighting ingredients in it.
  • Try to wash your pillow case at least 2 times a week, especially if you are a side sleeper. I sleep on my side, so imagine the hair product that is on my pillow now being smushed on my face?!

When it comes to keeping my hair healthy here are some of my tips:

  • Find a shampoo that works for your hair type. I love the Degrease formula by Maple Holistics. It helps me because I have oily hair or oily scalp near my forehead and I am always touching my bangs so I want a shampoo to cleanse the hair but not strip it of the moisture it needs. It’s all natural, smells amazing and doesn’t make my hair feel dry after.
  • Follow up with a moisturizer that doesn’t weight down your hair. I like the Silk 18 Conditioner by Maple Holistics and it smells like heaven. It has Vanilla so it is very yummy and it makes my hair so soft but not greasy.
  • I am trying to wash my hair less each week but it’s hard with oily hair. I am trying to space out my washes by doing it straight the first day, curly the second day and if I can get away with it I will wear it up or in a bread the third day. It takes time to train your hair to know it won’t be washed everyday. I have to work on that, but I’m getting better at it.
  • Try to avoid blow drying your hair every time you wash it. I try to wash my hair at night, let it air dry while I sleep and then flat iron it or curl it in the morning. It is usually completely dry by the time I wake up and I really hate spending the time to blow my hair out unless I absolutely have to.

I hope these tips and products help you with having healthier, stronger hair, skin and nails. Trust me, I know what it’s like testing and trying so many products to find the one that works best for me, so hopefully this will get you on the right track.
