When you want shiny hair, strong nails, and flawless skin, vitamins are a healthy solution, but just what works? We turned to dermatologist and creator of GOLDFADEN MD products, Dr. Gary Goldfaden, for the answers.
1. Vitamin C
Vitamin C might be over-prescribed for the common cold, but it’s beauty benefits are actually legit. Not only does it brightens skin tone (and it’s a safe and natural solution to bleaching), but it aids with sun damage spots, discoloration, and dull skin.
2. Vitamin A (Retinol)
Vitamin A (Retinol)
Vitamin A, or Retinol, is probably the most famous vitamin on this list for its known benefits of improving overall skin tone, as well as fine lines, wrinkles, and acne. Pro tip: if you really want to see results, be diligent and take your vitamins daily.
3. Vitamin B (Biotin)
Vitamin B (Biotin)
If your hair and nails just won’t grow fast enough, or you’re prone to split ends and brittle tips that can’t hold a mani, try taking vitamin B. The Biotin will help stimulate hair follicle growth and nail cell regeneration.
4. Vitamin K
If you suffer from dark under-eye circles, vitamin K is what you need to be taking. Not only will it help with the bruised look, but it will mean loading on mess concealer in the am.
5. Omega Fish Oils
