2. Thinning Hair
Hair loss may be an indication of medical conditions such as thyroid disease, anemia, or immune disorders. If your doctor has ruled out these conditions, consider these suggestions for improving the appearance of thinning hair. If an iron deficiency is the culprit, make sure to include iron-rich vegetables such as spinach, kale, and mushrooms in your diet. A diet rich in B vitamins may also improve lackluster locks. Stress may also contribute to thinning hair. Therefore, engaging in exercise, relaxation techniques, and time with loved ones may help to relieve your mental burdens.
1. Yellowing Nails
Yellow nails may be an indication of underlying medical conditions such as thyroid disease, diabetes, or skin cancer. In other cases, yellow nails may indicate a vitamin deficiency. Providing your body with the nutrients found in fresh produce, lean proteins, fiber-rich legumes, and whole grains will deliver the nutrients your nails and body lack. Wearing nail polish for too long without a break can also cause your nails to yellow. Allow your nails access to fresh air, free from polish, every so often. Apply moisturizer to your nails as well as your hands in order to keep them smooth and protected.
