When you're healthy on the inside, it shows on the outside! Especially in your hair, skin, and nails. If you stay up late, don’t hydrate, skip exercise and forgo the veggies, then you will find yourself looking frazzled.
The good news is that it doesn’t take a big budget to look healthy and vibrant.
All it really takes is taking care of your inner health. Because like they say, beauty really does come from within!
And since hair, skin, and nails are all part of the same health category, these tips will help in all aspects. For vibrant hair, skin and nails, take note of the following simple tips.
Drinking fluids is crucial to staying healthy and maintaining the everyday functions of your body. As shocking as it is, your hair and nails are actually 25% water, while your skin is a whole 64%!
So needless to say, without water, your body will not only feel dehydrated - it will start looking it!
Not to mention, if you're not flushing toxins out properly (i.e potty breaks) - your body will start showing these toxins through body acne, bad breath, brittle hair, broken fingernails, etc.
And if you don't have enough fluids flowing through you, taking a number 1 or number 2 will be harder and less frequent.
Anti-inflammatory diets will do wonders for your skin, but they actually promote gut health as well. Anti-inflammatory foods include tomatoes, blueberries, turmeric, ginger, beans, avocados, whole grains, chia seeds, strawberries, garlic, green tea, dark chocolate, olive oil, apples, oily fish, sweet potatoes, cherries, and more.
In addition to lowering inflammation, a more whole food, less processed diet can have noticeable effects on your physical and emotional health.

However you de-stress, stick to it! Many people rely on meditation or yoga to de-stress. But some people play beach volleyball, watch vintage movies, golf, or have any number of a handful of hobbies.
The important thing is that de-stressing becomes a regular thing for you. Relaxing is easier when you’re healthy, but if you need help relaxing, see a specialist. Even if you’re otherwise healthy, sometimes people need a little help during difficult seasons to relax all the way.
Everyone can also benefit from massage, no matter their health level. But it’s a great treatment for hypertension and chronic stress.
You can create healthy rhythms by consistently going to bed on time and even make time for power naps if you need them. Some people swear by morning workouts for stress management and a good night’s sleep.
Collagen is good for creating that shiny look you see on celebrities. You can take your collagen in a lot of ways. Get a doctor’s recommendation on how much and what kind you should take for the best results.
Collagen studies show that it can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and support bone and joint health. Healthy joints are essential for staying active and keeping the body healthy.
Every body detoxifies via the body’s natural pathways. These are mainly the liver, kidneys, bowels, pores, lymph nodes, and mouth. Essentially, you want to moderate your alcohol and chemical (such as the kind found in energy drinks) intake to create a clean ecosystem in your body.
The less work you give your detoxification pathways, the better off they will be! Regular exercise and sleep is essential for all of these pathways to function properly.
You don’t need a large budget to take on these five steps to great hair, skin, and nails. Everyone can do a lot with raw food and plenty of water.
