5 Reasons Why Your Hair, Skin and Nails Aren’t Looking Their Best

5 Reasons Why Your Hair, Skin and Nails Aren’t Looking Their BestWhen it comes to looking good, hair, skin and nails aren’t the only things others notice about us, they are also the first signs of your overall health.

So, if you’re craving glossy, full hair, clear and plumped-up skin and healthy, strong nails – you can achieve that working from the inside-out. How? By ensuring your body has the right nutritional balance.

Let’s run through some common issues and easy fixes for when your hair seems duller or thinner than usual, our complexion flares up or our nails become brittle –

Here are the 5 reasons why this might happen:
(Hint: You will get some easy suggestions on dietary changes to boost your beauty to the max!)

Reason 1 – Zinc Deficiency

Zinc is truly a wonder mineral; essential for healthy hair, skin and nails - as well as fertility, cognitive function, bone health and vision. A lack of zinc can affect your androgen/ testosterone levels, causing oily skin that’s prone to breakouts and hair loss.

Our body can’t store zinc so we must consume enough every day from external sources - food.

Here is how you can fix that quickly:
     • Eat more beans, nuts and seeds (such as pumpkin seeds)
     • Shellfish and meat are also good sources of Zinc.

If you’re vegan or having an inconsistent diet, it’s very difficult to consume all the zinc you need from your diet alone, so consider a supplement.

Reason 1 – Zinc Deficiency Feel’s Formula contains 10 minerals in chelated, highly-absorbable forms and 22 other ingredients including powerful vitamins and phytonutrients. Get access to an exclusive 20% discount by clicking here or use code “SUPER20” at checkout.

Reason 2 – Lack of omega-3’s

Vital for glossy hair, clear skin and healthy nails - Omega 3’s are essential fatty acids, which also contribute to the health of your heart, brain and eyesight.

Did you know? Omega-3s are anti-inflammatory and so reduce redness or breakouts in the skin - as well as helping your complexion to heal from acne, eczema and psoriasis, according to studies* (science says so).

How do you get your Omega-3’s?:
     • Oily fish, such as salmon, mackerel and sardines.
     • Small amounts are found in certain nuts and seeds, such as flaxseeds, walnuts and chia seeds.

Interesting fact: Most of us struggle to consume enough Omega 3s from diet alone, especially for those of us who don’t eat fish. It’s worth taking a good-quality supplement to help with this.

Reason 2 – Lack of omega-3’s With 1000mg of Omega 3 and 85% more potent than fish oils, Feel’s innovative Algae Omega 3 gives the benefit of effective Omega, without the fishy burps or harming the ocean. Get 20% off by clicking here or simply use code “SUPER20” at checkout.

Reason 3 – You lack Vitamin A

Vitamin A is also known as the ‘anti-ageing vitamin’ thanks to it’s antioxidant qualities, which can protect the skin against free radical damage (from pollution or stress). Free radicals accelerate the ageing process.

Vitamin A speeds up the skin’s natural healing process and is essential for a clear and smooth complexion. Exposure to pollution, cigarette smoke and also consuming alcohol have been known to deplete our stores of Vitamin A.**

Thankfully, if you can get Vitamin A from these foods:
     • Liver, egg yolks, full-fat dairy and oily fish.

Unfortunately, most of us don’t consume these foods regularly, so it’s worth adding a clean, high-quality supplement.

Reason 3 – You lack Vitamin A With a potent blend of 32 innovative ingredients - vitamins, minerals and botanicals in their most bioavailable forms and optimal dosages, our formula will ensure that you are providing your body with everything it needs to complement a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle.

Reason 4 – Poor Gut Health

Chances are issues with your skin could be because of your gut health. Experts call this connection the gut-skin axis and simple steps like cutting out sugar and drinking more water can reap HUGE rewards in terms of the smoothness, clarity and luminosity of your skin.

Symptoms of an imbalanced digestive system, such as bloating or IBS often go hand-in-hand with skin issues like acne and eczema.***

Help for your gut:
     • Eat plenty of fibre
     • Eat foods containing probiotics: live yoghurt, kombucha or fermented foods
     • Take a probiotic supplement
     • Drink more water (2L a day)
     • Cut down on sugar

Reason 4 – Poor Gut HealthGet an exclusive 20% off a formula packed with ingredients contributing to your skin health, like hyaluronic acid, silica-rich bamboo extract, potent botanical antioxidants, and three strains of 10 billion probiotics specifically studied to support skin health - Feel Beauty Probiotic+ - use code “SUPER20” at checkout.

Reason 5 – You might need more antioxidants

Antioxidants protect the skin from damage and premature ageing by shielding your skin from free radicals. Free radicals we mentioned before, also come from UV rays from the sunshine, cigarette smoke, pollution, alcohol, lack of sleep, excess stress and an inflammatory diet.

Of course, modern life is full of free radicals, which is why we need a healthy dose of skin-saving antioxidants.

Where do you get powerful antioxidants?  Vitamins and minerals like vitamin C, vitamin E and selenium, as well as phytonutrients from plants such as turmeric, citrus bioflavonoids, grape seed extract and bilberry are full of antioxidants.

How do you get more antioxidants and less free radicals:
     • Eat more fresh vegetables and fruit
     • Cut down on stress
     • Reduce consumption of alcohol or smoking
     • Wear a high factor SPF everyday on your face

Ensuring you take a high-quality multivitamin that contains the right amount of antioxidants you need can be a convenient solution for a busy lifestyle.
