The Coronavirus has us all quarantine within our homes, but we can use this time to pamper ourselves in ways that we never have time for while working our 9 to 5 jobs. Improve your hair and skin quality from within! These are Dr. Nazarian's favorite hair, skin, and lifestyle vitamins.
How Can Vitamins Improve our Hair and Skin?
Hair and skin are things that people look at as signs of beauty, health, and virility. Often, underlying health issues can cause hair loss, as well as cause deficiencies within our hair, nails, and skin. Just like any other parts of our bodies, our hair and skin need a variety of nutrients to help it remain healthy and strong.
Other factors such as age, genetics, and hormones can also play a role in the health of our hair, and skin. A well-balanced diet that contains all the essential nutrients is one of the best ways to ensure you are getting what is needed to keep your body healthy. However, if you have a deficiency, you may have to turn to supplements for help.
