Toronto, ON – From lifeless, limp locks to dry sunburnt skin and brittle, chipped nails, the body’s most important assets take a beating thanks to fun in the sun. Swimming, sun-worshipping, gardening and playing on the beach all do damage, which is why every health junkie should have a bottle of femMED’s Hair, Skin & Nails stocked in their après-summer beauty cabinet. Loaded with nutrients and antioxidants, this specifically formulated supplement helps repair and improve damage done to hair, skin and nails from any number of summer sources.
“The appearance and quality of our hair, skin and nails can be affected by sun, wind, chlorinated pools and dietary deficiencies. Key ingredients in certain supplements can provide the body with the essential nutrients to help repair some of this damage,” said Sherry Torkos, pharmacist, fitness instructor and author of The Canadian Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine.
femMED, a women’s-only natural vitamin line, recently launched Hair, Skin & Nails as a way for women to revive the look and feel of lifeless, thinning hair, dry skin and brittle nails. Unlike existing prescription medications or creams, Hair, Skin & Nails is taken over time to support the biosynthesis of collagen and provide antioxidant protection from UV light, both of which encourage healthy, long-term growth of hair and nails and increase the skin’s ability to protect itself from environmental dangers, like the sun, smog and wind.
“femMED has developed a comprehensive formula for women that promotes healthy full hair, strong nails and beautiful skin from the inside out,” said Shawna Page, founder and CEO of femMED. “Doctor-formulated femMED Hair, Skin & Nails has key natural ingredients that can help repair and improve rough, dry skin, brittle nails and hair, and reduce hair loss. Because let’s face it – thin is not in when it comes to our hair, skin and nails.”
Key supplemental ingredients that support the healthy growth and repair of hair, skin and nails include:
- MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane), which has anti-inflammatory properties that protect the skin against the harsh effects of the sun and environment;
- Hyaluronic acid that supports the connective tissue of the skin;
- Antioxidants such as Vitamin C, alpha-lipoic acid and selenium that protect the skin against free radical damage and aid in tissue repair;
- Amino acids L Isoleucine, L-leucine, and L-valine, which benefit hair health;
- Calcium and biotin for healthy nails;
- Silicon to improve brittle hair and nails;
- Vitamins A and D, which are essential for healthy skin; and
- Zinc, which has anti-inflammatory properties and facilitates skin healing.
