Getting great hair, nails and skin might not seem easy but here are some healthy foods you can consume if you’d love to see quick results in your journey to beautiful Hair, Skin and Nails.

1. Yoghurt

Greek yoghurt especially contains protein, calcium, magnesium and zinc, all of which are important for healthy nails. The zinc is needed for cell growth and to prevent brittle, thinning hair.

2. Almond Nuts

Almond nuts contain monounsaturated fats, vitamin E and selenium which have been found to help maintain skin structure and protect the skin against sun damage as well as reduce the outbreak of spots.  Other nuts like Brazil nuts, hazelnuts and walnuts are also rich in key skin and hair nutrients.  

3. Brown Rice

Brown rice is a wholegrain food that is rich in biotin. Biotin is a water-soluble B vitamin that prevents hair and nails from becoming brittle and weak. Wholegrains also include, barley, granary and seeded bread, bulgar wheat and quinoa. Other biotin-rich foods are liver, egg yolk and yeast.

4. Eggs

Eggs are rich in zinc and selenium, two nutrients that are essential for a healthy scalp. A lack of zinc can lead to hair loss and a dry, flaky scalp. Fortified cereals and wholegrains are a good source of zinc, along with oysters, beef and eggs.

5. Carrots

Carrots are a good source of beta-carotene (which makes vitamin A). Vitamin A is needed by the body to make sebum. Sebum is an oily substance created by the sebaceous glands in our hair which provides a natural condition for a healthy scalp. Without sebum you are likely to have dry hair and an itchy scalp.  Other orange/yellow coloured
