I just started taking these the other day: http://www.naturemade.com/supplements/hair-skin-and-nails/hair-skin-and-nails

No clue if they’ll make any difference though. I’ve heard that biotin really helps hair and nails, but also that it can break you out. I’m super acne-prone, so I’m hoping the small amount of biotin (2500 mcg) in the ones I’m taking won’t cause acne.

Increased water intake helps your skin, and honey as a face mask is a miracle worker since it’s naturally antibacterial. I don’t know about those vitamins but these are 2 definite skin fixers if you’re looking to try new things 🙂

Coconut oil. Has done wonders for myself and also for my dog who has skin irritation due to allergies.

Green veggies and fruits!!!!! They are the absolute best for skin. I’ve read that celebrities drink liquid chlorophyll mixed with water to combat acne breakouts, but instead of spending money on supplements, I have been upping my intake of green veggies, especially spinach and broccoli. On days where I have a spinach salad for lunch or dinner, I find I have more energy and my skin always looks clearer and glowy the next day. Green tea is also wonderful for skin. As for hair, I find that oil masks, scalp massages, and staying away from heat as much as possible will help hair grow strong and healthy. I just donated 24 inches of hair (2 twelve inch ponytails, I have super think hair naturally), and I grew it in two years without supplements.

I’ve been trying to up my water intake [I dont drink nearly enough fluids], and as the wedding gets closer I’ve been piling on the Vitamin C! I don’t want to be sick for my wedding.

I bite my nails horribly so I’ll be wearing false nails, and my hair is in pretty good shape [I think anyway]. But I will be doing a few leave in treatments leading up to the day.

Oh my, I could seriously go on all day about it. Off the top of my head these are the most useful ways for me personally. It should be 100% virgin, expeller pressed. I get mine at Kroger.

In my everyday use, I put it in my coffee, I cook with it (stirfry, butter replacement, baking), I put it on the ends of my hair, my dog gets a teaspoon every day (which has drastically reduced redness and itching on her belly due to environmental allergies), I put it in smoothies, I dilute it and use it as detangler for my FI’s baby sister, and she uses it on her elbows and knees because she has eczema. FI has kinky corkscrew curly hair and it helps his frizz. I also shave my legs with it. A little goes a long way and we keep a big jar of it at all times.

I was skeptical at first but it really has drastically improved my hair, my FI’s baby sister’s skin, and my dog’s skin.

Viviscal is expensive but reallllly works on hair (making it grow faster and stop falling out)
