If there’s one resolution we can all agree on keeping year-round, it is to take better care of ourselves. Whether we want to lose weight, quit smoking or just feel more healthy, it is important to remember that a better you starts by adding daily vitamin supplements into your diet.
Back in December 2013 (Ahhh! Seems so long ago now, doesn’t it?), I was invited to the Nature Made VitaMelts event introducing their latest vitamin: Hair, Skin & Nails — a melt-in-your-mouth daily supplement in a natural strawberry lemonade flavor.
It is formulated with 2500 mcg of biotin, which may help support healthy hair, skin and nails for those deficient in biotin.† Nature Made is the #1 pharmacist recommended brand of letter vitamins (vitamins A, B, C, D!).
It also contains 60 mg of vitamin C per serving to help support collagen production, which is essential for healthy skin.†. And helps protect against damaging free radicals and supports the immune system.†
The vitamin tastes so good, just like candy. And the best part is that it is made with natural flavors and colors derived from natural sources — no synthetic dyes, preservatives or yeast included!
I always implore the importance of taking your vitamins. My grandmother would take them twice a day, morning and night. Religiously! She would keep them in a long container in the fridge and pop acidophilus, echinacea, vitamin B12… all that good stuff. Including a multi! And she always had the strongest nails and beautiful blemish-free and wrinkle-free skin.
The idea of taking care of our skin, hair and nails was portrayed through complimentary blow-outs and manicures at the Sam Brocato Salon in SoHo one early morning. My hair was blown out smooth and silky, while my nails were adorned with gold glitter and a neutral milky base courtesy of Essie nail polish.
After all the primping, we were given morning smoothies for some more nutrition. I couldn’t help but choose a pineapple and orange smoothie, which is something I plan on making for myself every day in 2014!
I’ll continue to keep my hair, skin and nails healthy and strong by taking my VitaMelts, but check out the other flavors and vitamins for your daily needs:
