Five foods to improve your skin and hair before your wedding

Five beauty-boosting foods to help brides-to-be with their skin and hair ahead of their big day. Wellness experts at Simply Supplements have named the five foods to keep skin and hair in a healthy, nourished and hydrated condition before wedding season. Carrots are packed full of beta-carotene which turns into vitamin A once eaten - this encourages cell growth which helps to hydrate skin and hair and stop any flakiness. Avocados support collagen production in the skin due to vitamin E and C to keep skin strong, and biotin to promote healthier hair. It's not just fruit and vegetables that improve skin and hair - dark chocolate is rich in flavonoids and minerals like zinc which boosts blood flow to nourish the skin and scalp.

Beauty News: Top ten ways to weather winter hair damage

Top ten ways to weather winter hair damage

Because winter doesn't end at Christmas, Neil Moodie, top editorial stylist and founder of the Neil Moodie Studio, has put together his Top Ten Ways to Weather Winter Hair Damage over the long, cold season. 1. Retain moisture. Masks are often overlooked but applying them once a week helps to give your hair back what it needs. Make sure the mask is combed all the way through your hair and wrap your hair in a hot towel or even cling film /shrink wrap and leave on your hair for a good 20 minutes. This will keep the heat in and open the cuticle of your hair more so the ingredients of the mask can penetrate the hair shaft better. You'll notice a huge difference in the condition of your hair afterwards. Pureology has a great Hydrate or Strength Cure Superfood Mask, which are really great. You can also try a steam treatment, this will open the cuticle layers before a deep conditioning treatment. We offer them in the Neil Moodie Studio. Also a very relaxing thing to do on a cold winter's day!
