Popping Pills for Hair Skin and Nails!

And your immune system.

Pre-party period, it's time to look at your diet and lifestyle and work out where you might be falling short. Is your skin blotchy, do you wake up bloated or with dark eyebags? Do you feel completely BLAH by 3pm?
Nothing will amend for a diet that falls short in vitamins, carbohydrates and protein. But you can BOLSTER your diet and your health with some smart supplements. I don't believe in taking all of them long term, but during periods of stress or post-illness, I definitely recommend adding:

  • Spirulina (powerful, green, antioxidant that comes in powder but I prefer the tablet)
  • Hair, Skin & Nails
  • Vitamin D (the sunshine vitamin - if you don't get much direct sunlight or you exercise a lot, this is one for you!)
  • Omega 3 (your body can't create omega 3 fatty acids in the body and they are vital for optimal brain, heart, skin and muscular health)
  • Coenzyme Q10 (joint support!)
If you're going to go to the effort of taking supplements, obey these two laws:
  • Follow the dosage guidelines on the pack, UNLESS your doctor has told you otherwise!
  • Buy quality product.
Find all Biosource Vitamins and Supplements exclusively at Priceline.

I also recommend Swisse. Their blood orange flavoured Hair, Skin & Nails liquid supplement is YUM. I also take their Mega B to combat poor sleep, slumpy metabolism and energy levels and stress.
