nail care:vitamins

Hello, girls! Today's lesson is about vitamins, what type you should take and why.

Vitamin C, vitamin E, and beta carotene are the "three musketeers" that continuously come to the aid of beauty by battling and quenching free radicals before they can harm precious and vulnerable skin. Fat-soluble beta carotene, for example, migrates to the skin, where it offers not only protection from free radicals from within, but from without, as well. It enables the skin to increase its exposure time to the sun before burning. But for some people with very sensitive skin can case sun burn. Likewise, vitamin E helps prevent free radicals generated by UV rays in the skin from doing their damage(Cuticle softener:rub the vitamin E oil on the cuticles of both feet and hands after bath or shower daily and at bedtime). Vitamin C, in turn, recharges vitamins E and carotene, and also prevents skin damage due to UV-generated free radicals. Vitamin C supports hair and nail growth by improving circulation. Useful as treating dandruff. May aid in preventing hair loss. Vitamin C increases absorption of iron, needed to prevent weak, pale or spoon-shaped nails.

Maintaining healthy natural nails is not as complicated as many may think. As with hair, nails are usually their healthiest in their natural state, requiring a bit of nail polish for protection and regular applications of hand cream as a moisturizer.
In fact, many argue that using natural nail strengtheners, which chemically cross link the nail plate, is actually a bad idea. Although they do make nails more rigid, they also make them less flexible and thus more prone to breaking on impact. It is actually more important that nails are kept flexible and moisturized.
Hope this was useful. See you later!
