Care for your skin, hair and nails with the new Nutrilite™ Beauty You Glow
Nutrition & Wellbeing
Skin, hair and nail care shouldn’t be a priority only during the summer. You should be caring for these all 365 days of the year. Here, we explain why and how.
Picnics on the beach, frisbee in the park, lazy afternoons on your balcony with friends – summer is the time to be outside and enjoy all that the season has to offer. However, because of all the activities in the sun and heat, it can also be a time that wreaks havoc on your skin, hair and nails. Because of this, many people step up their skin, hair and nail care routine during the hot months, but this shouldn’t be so.
Paying special attention to your skin, hair and nails only during the summer months will have your efforts be in vain. Instead, they should be a priority all year long. Why? Learn more below.
Why is skin, hair and nail care important all year?
The skin is the largest organ
Did you know that your skin is the largest organ in your body? It’s true! Not only does it protect you from outside elements, but it also serves as a barrier for bacteria. When your skin isn’t properly cared for, it can let in toxins that may result in breakouts or premature ageing.
Signs of ageing
Now that you know your skin is the largest organ in your body, it probably comes as no surprise that this is where the signs of ageing can first be seen. Thankfully, taking proper care of your skin is also your first line of defence against starting to look older.
Your skin, hair and nails change daily
Ready to be surprised again? Your skin cells shed every day. In fact, some research suggests that people lose nearly 200,000 skin cells every hour, which is nearly five million in a full 24-hour period! Your hair and nails are also constantly growing and shedding, even though this process is slightly less rapid than your skin. What this shedding means is that your appearance can change rapidly based on what’s beneath the shedding. Proper wellness care will ensure each layer looks soft, plump and beautiful.
Prevention is key
Your skin and nails can play host to a large range of bacteria and toxins without you ever being aware of it. For your skin, this normally leads to breakouts or tired, dull-looking skin, but it can also lead to more serious problems that require medical and/or invasive treatment. For your nails, this can lead to nails that crack or split easily, and it can introduce harmful bacteria into your body whenever your hands are near your face. The sun’s harmful UV rays, which may feel great when lounging by the pool, can also lead to cancerous cells in both your skin and your nailbeds.
How to protect your skin, hair and nails all year long
Now that you know how important year-round care is, you may be wondering where to start. And, if you’re a busy young professional, you may be worried that you simply don’t have the time for a long, intense skin care routine.
Luckily, there are several simple steps you can do to protect your skin during all 12 months of the year. First, you can wash and moisturise your face, legs and arms daily. Wear sunscreen even on days that are cloudy, and don’t forget to put the lotion on your nails, as well. Use shampoo or conditioner that moisturises and consider wearing a hat during the peak UV ray hours.
Your diet also makes a big impact on the health and wellness of your skin, hair and nails. The new
Nutrilite™ Beauty You Glow gummy
supplement was made especially for people who want to improve their skin, hair and nail health, yet may not have the time for long skin care routines and complicated, home-cooked meals.
