Boost Your Hair, Skin, and Nails with These Tips

Boost Your Hair, Skin, and Nails with These Tips

When you look good, you feel good.

There’s no question about it, but beauty comes from within more than it can with cosmetic products. Your hair, skin, and nails are nourished and detoxified by your body’s internal processes, so we’d like to focus on five ways you can boost them from the inside out.

1. Stay Hydrated

One of the most important things you can do for your overall health is to stay hydrated. Every organ and tissue in your body requires adequate hydration, and starting to drink enough water can quickly have you feeling – and looking – much better. Some studies show that drinking enough water visibly improves skin smoothness and the water-binding ability of your skin. These trials have often used mineral water containing critical electrolytes for fluid balance and cellular function. Hydration requires the electrolyte minerals sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium alongside water.

SOUL IV offers the Hydration Station infusion for clients who are hungover, have recently returned from a long-haul flight, or have competed in a major sporting event and need a boost. This is our base infusion and part of all our IV services.

2. Quit Nicotine

Around one in nine Australians are still smokers. If you are one of them and feel like it’s making your skin (and the rest of your body) age faster, it’s not in your head. You may have heard that smoking makes you look roughly 10 years older, and that’s not even all. Other research has found that smoking contributes to premature greying and hair loss. Men are most likely to experience it on their heads, while women are more likely to see early hair loss around their temples.

Nicotine should be avoided in all its forms. It increases inflammation, constricts blood vessels, contributes to DNA damage, and disrupts protein metabolism. Worse still, nicotine reduces oestrogen levels in women, taking the hormone’s support for collagen production with it.

3. Wear Sunscreen

We’ve been hearing about the importance of sun protection our whole lives in Australia regarding prevention. It gets even better. One year of daily sunscreen use in a 2016 study led to better skin clarity and texture in all volunteers. Skin clarity, texture, and uneven skin tone were improved by 40-52% on average, with other measurements showing smaller gains. This shows your body’s amazing ability to repair itself when given the right support, even in the case of skin aging.

4. Regular Exercise

Exercise has been regarded as the top anti-aging intervention for years now. That’s not because we haven’t found anything else but because researchers are uncovering many benefits of regular physical activity.

These benefits include reduced inflammation, better blood sugar control, and improved energy production. This is why endurance exercise may help to slow skin aging, improving its structure from the inside out.

Many people make exercising regularly a New Year’s resolution. Whether exercising outside on your own, joining a gym, or signing up for a sports team, starting new habits can be difficult. If your main roadblock to a healthy exercise routine is a lack of energy, SOUL IV infusions may be able to help improve your cellular energy production.

6. Antioxidant Boosters

Antioxidants can help protect your cells and their ability to perform functions such as tissue repair. If you need a boost alongside a healthy diet, our Radiance Elixir at SOUL IV consists of vitamin C and glutathione, two key antioxidants. Glutathione and its “companions”, such as vitamin C, protect against UV light, pollution, and internal oxidative stress from energy production, but their levels fall with age. Restoring them may support skin regeneration, as exposure to the outside world means a higher burden of oxidative stress.

At SOUL IV, we receive many requests from potential clients searching for ways to improve their appearance truly.

Our infusions and shots are natural, safe interventions that may help you look more like yourself, not a copy of current cosmetic trends.
