Vitamin Cheat Sheet: Why These Vitamins are Important When it Comes to Your Beauty

Vitamins are an essential part of a healthy lifestyle but did you also know that they are also essential to the health of your skin, hair, and nails? Where do you start with finding the right vitamins to take? You want to look and feel healthy- how do you know what works and what doesn't? Check out our Vitamin Cheat Sheet to easily find out!

Most Effective Vitamins for Hair, Nails, and Skin: 

Biotin 
Biotin is essential for hair growth. It's also called vitamin H and it is a water-soluble vitamin that is well-known for thickening hair and strengthening nails. It's in many beauty products but note that is much more effective when taken internally! 

Zinc 
Zinc is a nutrient that is a component of hundreds of enzymes. These enzymes are responsible for regulating the body's ability to make healthy hair and nails. If you are zinc deficient, the health of your hair could deteriorate due to weakened protein structures that are in charge of keeping your hair and nails strong. It can also cause your hair to lose its color. Take zinc internally to ensure that you're getting enough each day.

Vitamin D 
Vitamin D helps to facilitate hair growth. Unfortunately, this means that a deficiency can lead to hair loss, and no one wants that! Vitamin D can also be absorbed by spending time in the sun. Just don't forget your sunscreen!  

Antioxidants 
Antioxidants are a key component in overall health including hair, skin, and nails. Fruits are loaded with anti-oxidants, but if you don't eat your daily servings, consider taking a supplement. 

Niacin 
Niacin, or Vitamin B3, is the vitamin that improves blood circulation. An increase in blood circulation means that more oxygen and nutrients will be delivered throughout the body literally making you look more alive. Niacin will not only lead to glowing skin and shiny hair, it will lead to a healthier you! 

Omega III Fatty Acids 
Essential fatty acids make your hair shine! Thanks to the three active ingredients it contains: 

Alpha-linolenic acid 
Eicosapentaenoic acid 
Docosahexaenoic acid 

If you have dry skin, dry scalp, or dandruff, it could be because you aren't getting enough healthy fat into your system. 

Having healthier hair, skin, and nails are all great by-products of making sure you're filling your daily quota of vitamins. So are having more energy, vitality, and zest for life! Enjoy!
