10 Tips for Beautiful Hair, Skin, and Nails


Having beautiful hair, skin, and nails is more than just a confidence-booster–it’s an indication of your overall health. Did you know that your skin is your body’s largest organ? It’s also your fastest growing organ, which means cell turnover is happening all the time. This rapid turnover, combined with the fact that you can actually see your skin, acts as a barometer for your current state of health from the outside in.

1. Eat an Anti-Inflammatory Diet

Due to the influence of the gut-skin axis, there is a strong correlation between what you eat and chronic skin issues. The Western diet is full of toxic and inflammatory foods including sugar, dairy, and refined cooking oils and carbs. These foods have been associated with an increased prevalence of acne.2

Fortunately, by switching to an anti-inflammatory diet such as The Myers Way®, you can encourage the growth of new, healthy skin cells, and say goodbye to irritated and inflamed skin for good. Check out this article for my list of top inflammation-fighting foods.

2. Heal Your Infections

Gut infections can play a huge role in the appearance and condition of your skin. One study showed that 46% of patients with rosacea tested positive for small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO). When treated with Rifaximin (the standard antibiotic treatment for SIBO) the majority of patients in the study experienced significant improvement in their rosacea.3

Likewise, Candida overgrowth can be at the root of your eczema, dandruff, nail fungus, and other skin issues. Candida, or yeast cells, are able to permeate your gut lining, causing your gut to become leaky and allowing toxins, microbes, and yes, yeast, to escape your gut and travel throughout your bloodstream. Once in your bloodstream, Candida can colonize other areas of your body, including your skin, which explains why researchers have found Candida in skin cultures of eczema patients.4

The good news is, by healing your infections, you can also reclaim clear skin and overcome other chronic conditions without resorting to expensive topical medications, which may only work short-term and don’t really get to the root of the issue.
