Easy smoothie recipes for healthy skin, hair, and nails

Easy smoothie recipes for healthy skin, hair, and nails

Want to drink your way to gorgeous-looking hair, healthy skin, and strong nails? It sounds too good to be true, but it isn’t. Combining just the right smoothie ingredients can give you a blast of nutrition that’s good for you and your appearance.

Battle the summer heat with a refreshing drink that leaves you looking and feeling better than ever. The following smoothie recipes were selected because the ingredients feature nutrients that your hair, skin, and nails crave.

One thing we really love about smoothies is that they are an excellent way to take your daily vitamins, especially if you have trouble swallowing pills. If you’re focused on using summer smoothies to boost your skin, hair or nail health, then adding Hair La Vie vitamins like Clinical Formula Hair Vitamins or Revitalizing Formula Hair Vitamins can give you an extra boost in the right direction.

Pretty Potion/Handsome Helper smoothie

Created by Joy Bauer, this smoothie recipe is designed to make your hair and skin happy.

The spinach gives you folate and iron. Folate is responsible for the healthy growth of your hair, and iron helps the blood circulate nutrients. The berries in this smoothie provide a healthy dose of vitamin C, which helps form collagen to keep hair, skin, and nails strong and flexible.

Ingredients:

♦ 1 cup baby spinach

♦ ½ cup frozen mixed berries

♦ 1 tablespoon chia seeds

♦ ½ banana, cut up

♦ ½ cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

♦ 3-5 ice cubes

Directions:

Pop all the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth and frothy.

Beauty smoothie for healthy hair

Your hair is going to be just as happy as your taste buds when you make this delicious mango and strawberry treat.

We’ll be honest, the swiss chard gives this smoothie an odd color, but it doesn’t take away from the berry-fresh flavor. It also gives you a nice dose of beta carotene, or vitamin A, which your scalp will love as it prevents dandruff, dryness, and itchiness.

The addition of the walnuts is a great way to get omega-3 fatty acids in your smoothie to help support speedy and healthy hair growth. Walnuts also have vitamins B and E, which protect your skin and hair from sun damage.

Flaxseed is easy to add and also gives you a healthy dose of omega-3s, but they also have lignans, which could help to prevent hair loss.

Ingredients:

♦ 3 large chard leaves, stems removed

♦ 1 cup frozen mango

♦ 1 cup strawberries

♦ 1 cup plain yogurt

♦ ¼ cup walnuts

♦ 1 tablespoon. flaxseed

♦ ½-1 cup water

Directions:

Place all ingredients into a blender and blend. There may be a need to add a little water to properly puree the chard.

Avocado and berry hair growth smoothie

The avocado in this smoothie is full of niacin, or vitamin B3, which transforms carbohydrates into energy and ensures healthy blood cells and good circulation. It also can help keep your skin looking youthful.

Avocado isn’t the only ingredient that boosts your beauty. The almond milk provides proteins, which build hair structure and adds shine.

Ingredients:

♦ ½ ripe avocado

♦ 2 cups spinach

♦ 1 cup raspberries

♦ 1 cup strawberries

♦ 2 tablespoon chia seeds

♦ 2 cups almond milk

Directions:

Place all of these ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. Add ice cubes if you want a colder smoothie.

Final thoughts

Pick your favorite smoothie recipe and sip the summer away, feeling cool and looking great. With the right ingredients, your hair, skin, and nails will benefit from a blast of minerals and vitamins designed to fuel you from the inside out. Don’t forget to add your Hair La Vie vitamins to the mix to get even more benefit from your refreshing break.

Once you’ve mastered making these smoothies, you can start creating your own smoothies that center around your personal tastes and the fresh ingredients you have available to you. If you want to create a new fresh smoothie try adding cinnamon, tangerines or sweet potatoes for additional hair benefits.

With a great list of hair-healthy foods and a handful of hair-centric vitamins in hand, you can’t go wrong.
