The Connection Between Nutrition and Your Skin & Hair

The Connection Between Nutrition and Your Skin & Hair

How Nutrition Affects Your Skin & Hair

Nutrition and skin health

It is well documented that nutrition impacts the health of your skin and hair and contributes to healthy skin and hair as you age. Because the cells in your skin and hair are constantly renewed, they rely on a consistent supply of nutrients to maintain optimal health. 

How poor nutrition affects the hair and skin

Even if you’re using top-quality products on your skin but not taking in the proper nutrients in the correct quantities, your skin and hair may not display the full benefit of those products. This is because  skin cells need proper nutrition to enjoy optimal health from the inside out. 

If your skin and hair are not nourished properly, the signs of nutrient deficiencies and unhealthy eating habits will be visible.

Insufficient levels of vitamins such as A, C, D, and E produce dull, itchy skin prone to rashes and may trigger conditions such as acne, hyperpigmentation, and rosacea. Vitamin deficiencies can also contribute to hair loss. Studies have indicated that deficiencies in nutrients such as iron and zinc are also linked to hair loss and thinning.
