You Can Resolve Menopause Issues With Hair, Skin, and Nails

No one ever told me that during menopause my hair, skin, and nails were going to change, so I will share with you a little secret that may help you. When our bodies are no longer producing the “normal” number of proteins required to produce healthy hair, skin, and nails, we can supplement with such vitamins as biotin, coupled with silica (a building block of collagen) to help restore.

During menopause, we notice our hair is not growing at a normal pace or there is a lack of shine/luster that there once was.

When going through menopause, we can notice our hair is not growing at a normal pace. There might be a lack of shine/luster. There are typically going to be changes noticed at the same time or shortly after that the nails and skin may also reflect changes as well including discoloration, random rashes, and overall dryness of the skin. If your hair and skin are suffering you can believe that your nails will as well. When our nails are not receiving what they require, you may notice breaking and flaking as well as a brittle texture. I know, the whole effect on our bodies at this time of life can be confusing or troubling but, there are a few things you can consider to support your hair, nails, and skin.

Like everything in life, our hair skin, and nails go through cycles. At times, these cycles are good, other times seemingly not so good. This may be your body’s way of telling you that it is not naturally producing the amounts of protein to maintain a healthy balance. Adding vitamins or supplements to your daily lifestyle can resolve some of these distressing symptoms.

Biotin and Silica are the combinations that I recommend because one (biotin) rejuvenates and the other (silica) strengthens. You can find these combined in such vitamins as Hairforce which can be found in most Natural Pharmacies.

Collagen can supplement the hair, skin, and nails as well. You can add collagen to your drinking water in the form of powder or a liquid and even in a gummy form. Collagen is a popular antioxidant that over time restores elasticity, leaving the hair and nails stronger while leaving the skin appearing tighter.

When following the manufacturer’s directions, vitamins and supplements are a safe and easy way to aid in restoring what your body may be missing. Be aware that like anything, this takes time. You cannot expect to add a vitamin or supplement to your routine and see immediate results. It is important to understand that it takes time to see results. I suggest consistency and diligence will show results in about one month’s time.

Eat your vitamins

Are you someone who also likes to ensure you eat your vitamins? Your hair, skin, and nails will benefit from:

Veggies: green peas, lentils, cauliflower, mushrooms, carrots, sunflower seeds.

Meat, Dairy, and Fish include organ meats (kidneys and liver), milk, cheese, yogurt, eggs (including the yolk). Fish is also a great way to get your omega 3 fatty acids.

The importance of listening to your body and being aware of what it may be telling you is key. Fatigue and insomnia can be a way of telling you to get some help by taking vitamins or supplements. IMPORTANT: Before adding any vitamin or supplements into your routine, consult with your family doctor. Many supplements can affect medications or supplements you may already be taking. Consider having a round of bloodwork before starting and then after a few months. then, you can monitor the changes.
