Beauty Begins With Health

There is unlikely at least one representative of the weak half of humanity, who does not dream of shiny and smooth hair, clean skin, or strong nails. Women have taken care of their appearance at all times. Our grandmothers and mothers used mainly homemade means. Modern beauties have access to a variety of cosmetics. From what I did not learn to make it! No one will be surprised by a cream of black caviar, shampoo with an extract from the flowers of an orchid, thermal water from the peaks of the Alps. By the way, if you need a good product for skincare before you go shopping.

But the external attractiveness depends not only on cosmetics and regular self-care. First of all, beauty begins with health. When the body fails, hair, skin, and nails suffer. But we often don’t attach importance to that. For example, we noticed that the pins are layered, but instead of paying attention to your health, we begin to cover them with therapeutic varnish. All this, of course, is also very useful, but until the internal problem is solved, the condition of the nails (hair, skin – substitute your own) will not change. And the sooner you take measures to troubleshoot health problems, the faster external beauty will return.

I was forced to write this article by the experience of a close friend. For two years, the girl has been fighting hard with acne (acne). What only “miraculous” lotions, expensive salon procedures, and vitamin complexes she did not try! For a while, her face became apparent, and then the pimples reappeared. I advised her to see an endocrinologist. The friend rested and continued to experiment on her face. By the way, valuable tips for caring for him, which, I think, did not allow her to spoil her skin completely, the girl went to see a doctor. She did have a hormonal glitch. After six months of treatment, the skin of a friend shone with beauty and health. Now she regrets the two lost years and money she gave for cosmetics and procedures in beauty salons. But, as they say, we learn from our mistakes.

I’ll tell the story of another friend. For several years, she has been trying to lose weight. Moreover, a lover of delicious food is not called. She adheres to the principles of healthy eating, does not overeat at night, sometimes, of course, can afford a piece of cake or chocolate, but quite rarely. Extra pounds came to her after a lot of stress, and we’re not going to leave. She sat on rigid diets (by the way, about why fasting is so harmful but did not get slim, and, it seems, only gained weight. After consulting with a doctor and tests, it turned out that the girl’s blood sugar level was disturbed. Because of this, she could not lose extra pounds.

  • Fourthly, a sharp weight loss. Everyone has probably heard about this, but those who want to lose weight continue to make the same mistake: rapid weight loss is extremely harmful to health and beauty! And the skin then sags, then no creams and lotions will not return its elasticity, and the mood is always bad, and the hair falls out intensively. The reason is that along with adipose tissue during a sharp weight loss, fat-soluble vitamins and minerals leave the body, which our hair needs very much. Therefore, you need to part with kilograms gradually. Nutrition during the diet should be complete and balanced. Make sure that in your diet there are foods rich in vitamins A, C, E, F and group B, as well as iron, zinc, calcium. Our hair needs them especially. And, as soon as they are not enough, they begin to fall out;
  • Fifth,pregnancy and lactation. Expecting a child is a wonderful time in the life of every woman. This is a period of joy, tenderness, special happiness. But, unfortunately, it can be overshadowed by hair loss, as the female body gives all its strength to the future baby. The hormonal background changes, there are not enough trace elements, the hair begins to fall out. To avoid this, take special complexes for pregnant women, eat food rich in vitamins, rest more and walk in the fresh air.

These are the main reasons that can provoke thinning of the hair. What to do? In a magazine I respected, there was once an interview with a trichologist. The doctor advised taking a blood test for testosterone, estradiol, prolactin, and follicle-stimulating 17-OH-progesterone, SHBG globulin, dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate, thyroid-stimulating hormone, luteinizing hormone.

If weak nails

Flaky and broken nails, they have white specks and furrows? The cause of such troubles is a lack of calcium, iron, zinc, and phosphorus in the body. These are essential elements for female beauty. The condition of the skin, hair, nails, teeth and our mood depends on them. For example, private companions will constantly experience fatigue, drowsiness, and apathy if they have enough iron. You will experience a lack of strength from the very morning, and this condition can also be described as a “squeezed lemon.” The primary source of calcium, iron, zinc, and phosphorus (however, and other essential elements for our body) is food. On your table should be sesame, nuts, cheese, eggs, figs, dairy products, fresh fruits and vegetables, liver, raisins, fish, low-fat meats.

I used to be skeptical about the statement that the condition of the nails directly depends on nutrition. But when faced with their fragility and revised their diet, I was convinced that this is so, and food affects everything, including the beauty of nails.

Now let’s talk about what to do if the nails have become evil. Find out where in your city you can analyze the nail plate for trace elements. This service is quite expensive because the body contains 86 of them! But at least check the ones I mentioned above (calcium, phosphorus, iron, zinc). The doctor will see what elements you lack and select the appropriate treatment according to the study results.

If there are problems with weight

Extra pounds give women a lot of experiences and affect self-esteem. The causes of excess weight are very different. Unfortunately, this is not always up to us. It happens that obesity appears as a result of some severe disease, a course of hormonal treatment, etc. It only takes time and patience to return to its former harmony. Of course, there are many such cases when women run themselves. They do not play sports, are fond of sweets and flour, eat a lot. In such a situation, until you change your lifestyle, the weight will only grow.

But if you follow the diet, go to the gym, and the kilograms do not go away, pay attention to your health. You may have impaired thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) and estradiol levels. The latter is significant for female beauty. Estradiol is responsible for the condition of hair and skin; our youth depends on it because this hormone directly affects the process of cell renewal in the body. Estradiol also affects our forms. If the thyroid gland produces it typically, excess weight is not threatened. In the event of a failure, whatever you eat, fat will be deposited (mainly on the hips and abdomen).

A little about thyroid-stimulating hormone: if you have at least once analyzed for hormone levels, the doctor probably recommended that you examine TSH. It is responsible for the functioning of the thyroid gland as a whole. In other words, if the level of TSH suddenly becomes high or opposite low, then the thyroid gland has ceased to cope with its functions. That is, there was a failure in the entire hormonal system. Signs that you have a disturbing level of TSH are frequent headaches, swelling, fatigue.

If you can not get rid of excess weight, pay attention to the hormonal background. Take a test for hormones, as well as blood sugar levels.

If hair grows in unnecessary places

This is a very delicate issue that women are embarrassed to talk about. They continue to “quietly” deal with excessive hair by different methods, worry, but do not go to the doctor.

Hair is on the body of both men and women. Only in beautiful ladies are they light, soft, almost invisible. But it happens that the female body suddenly begins to grow hard and dark hair, like men’s. And some women even have “antennae.” All these are signs that the body has an increased level of male (androgenic) hormones. Until you solve this problem, it is useless to deal with excessive vegetation on the body. “Male” hair will appear again and again. You need to take a blood test for HBG (globulin), 17-OH-progesterone, testosterone, DEA-S04.

Recently I heard a proverb: “Who did not get sick, he does not know the price of health.” Absolute truth! When we are cheerful and feel good, we think very little about protecting our health so that there are no problems with it further. The correct tactic will be another tactic: take care of yourself every day, be attentive to your condition, both physical and mental, and at the slightest suspicion of malfunctions in the body, consult a doctor. Bless you!
