I am always looking for ways to add a variety of nutrients to my diet and also improve my skin. Now that summer weather has arrived, my skin is stressed more than usual, between the changes in temperature, sun, wearing sunscreen, and more. Puritan’s Pride offers a great variety of products that are designed to help improve your hair, skin and nails, and I was excited to try some of these products.
Hair, Skin, & Nails Once Per Day Formula
I was excited to take this supplement, which is such an easy way to provide your body with the nutrients you need for healthy hair, skin and nails.
The Hair, Skin & Nails Once Per Day is super easy to take, and I love that they are easy-to-swallow softgels. And since you only need to take one a day, it is easy for me to remember to take this daily usually with my breakfast.
My skin and nails have suffered lately from all the changes in weather especially going from basically winter to summer. I’m getting a lot more sun, and spending a ton of time outdoors between the kids and endless yard work. I protect my skin, but I feel pretty worn out from sun exposure and raking, gardening, etc., and I appreciate something that can help my body keep up. I could have really used this after I had my babies, when I felt like a lot of my nutrients were depleted and noticed changes in my hair and skin.
These softgels are packed with lots of nutrients to help nourish your hair, skin, and nails, including Biotin (2,500mcg per softgel!), Vitamin A, Folic Acid and MSM. I was happy to see that the Hair, Skin & Nails Once Per Day Formula uses a natural caramel color, and contains no artificial flavors or sweeteners, no preservatives, no milk, no wheat, no gluten, and more. I do a lot of label-reading and I am often surprised at the “junk” that goes into a lot of supplements, so I am glad to see this does not have a bunch of additives.
Hydrolyzed Collagen 1000 mg
This product was definitely a new product for me. I take lots of vitamins and supplements, but I can’t say I have ever tried hydrolyzed collagen, so it was a learning experience for me. As we age, our collagen (the most abundant protein in the body) decreases. Not only is a connective tissue in our hair, skin, and nails, but it is also present throughout other parts of the body, such as cartilage, the heart, lungs, and and muscles. I read that food sources of collagen aren’t necessarily very effective, whereas hydrolyzed collagen is a much easier form of collagen for the body to utilize.
These caplets are meant to be taken in sets of four, twice daily, on an empty stomach. At first this was a bit of a challenge for me, but I was able to come up with a great system that worked for me. I kept these on my bathroom counter and simply took four caplets when I woke up, and then four before bed, which is easy enough.
This hydrolyzed collagen protein supplement provides a source of amino acids for whole body utilization. Additionally, vitamin C is involved in collagen formation, which is important for healthy skin and connective tissue.
Like the Hair, Skin & Nails Formula, the Hydrolyzed Collagen is free from additives: No Artificial Color, Flavor or Sweetener, No Preservatives, No Sugar, No Starch, No Milk, No Lactose, No Soy, No Gluten, No Wheat, No Yeast, No Fish.
Organic Doctor® Vitamin E Super Hydrating Cream
I save this hydrating cream for the days my skin needs some extra help. Honestly, my skin can always use help, but lately I’ve been putting in several hours of yardwork per day, or taking the kids on outdoor adventures. Between the sun, sweat, allergies, and so on, I have been thankful to have this waiting on my bathroom counter after I shower.
This hydrating cream goes on smooth and absorbs well. It has a nice light aroma, which I would describe as sweet and citrus. Normally I am not a fan of facial products that have a scent to them, since so many are downright cloying, but I enjoy the light aroma of this product.
As a label-reader, I am happy to see this is free of SLS, Parabens, Artificial colors, Phthalates or Harsh preservatives. It has lots of great ingredients to help soothe and heal skin, like aloe vera and witch hazel. My skin feels good when I use this product, and it looks smoother and more even.
This bioactive Vitamin E cream is an intensive super hydrating emollient, safe to use on: Very dry skin – Dehydrated skin – Aging skin.
Super rich moisturizing organic Vitamin E provides a natural mix of bioactive tocopherols which penetrate and moisturize the driest of skin. This bioactive Vitamin E cream is a rich absorbent moisturizer, formulated to penetrate deep into the skin’s epidermal layer to instantly hydrate and restore, leaving the skin radiant, rejuvenated and intensely moisturized.
Vitamin E Moisturizing Stick
The Vitamin E Moisturizing Stick is designed for your lips, but I have to admit I have also used it for problem spots. This spring I did a lot of raking – until my hands were raw. My hands were blistered, which then became dried and cracked (literally limiting my range of motion). I was desperate for some kind of relief, and Vitamin E stick was soothing and seemed to help with healing.
This feels great on my skin, whether it is my lips or somewhere else that needs a spot of Vitamin E. Recently, after a day in the sun and wind at the beach, I was happy to come home and apply this to my lips. I will definitely be stocking up on this in the wintertime when my lips are so dry!
Apply Vitamin E Moisturizing Stick directly to lips. May be used regularly 5 to 6 times a day. This product can be used over or under lipstick.
These are only a few of the great products you can find at Puritan’s Pride. They carry so many products, from vitamins to herbs to pet products and health foods. Puritan’s Pride also carries children’s products, so I am looking forward to ordering for the whole family – from snacks I can pack in the kid’s lunches, to supplements that I take daily.
