Like many of us this past year we have been left with no other option than to embrace the ‘au naturel’ look and, of course, look at how we treat and care for our bodies, starting from the inside out.
We now know about what we need to do and the vitamins, minerals and supplements we need to take to support our immune systems but what about the essential nutrients needed for healthy hair, skin and nails?
Healthy hair, skin and nails depends on a plentiful, daily supply of specific proteins, vitamins and minerals, and when your body isn’t getting enough of them, it will naturally prioritise other needs before our hair or skin even get a look in. Which is why the health of our hair, skin and nails can be one of the first signs of poor nutrition i.e dry, thin and crispy hair, brittle nails, low collagen production and dehydrated skin.
And after a year of home cuts, home dyes and home hair experiments as well as the pressure and stress of the past year it’s bound to take it’s toll!
But don’t fear, McCauley are here to help and it’s never too late to start working on that healthy summer glow!
Here are our top recommended supplements to help you:
