In autumn and winter, skin, hair and nails need an extra portion of care, because during the cold season they are stressed by a number of negative factors. Help comes from nature in the form of beauty vitamins and trace elements.

It is not left out: The cold and wet season is back and takes its toll on hair, skin and nails. Hair becomes dull and dry, nails brittle and even the skin is no longer as supple and shiny, but tends to become rough and dry.

This means: "When the thermometer shows colder temperatures, the hat is constantly in use and the heating is on high in your own four walls, skin, hair and nails need an extra portion of care and attention. Otherwise, the outer appearance quickly suffers," says Natura Vitalis founder Frank Felte (www.naturavitalis.de). The company from Essen has long been considered one of the leading manufacturers of natural food supplements and places the highest value on continuous further and new developments of health products on a scientific basis.

For many people, for example, unpleasant hair loss and thin hair can occur seasonally in autumn and winter. The hair on the head suddenly becomes a little thinner. The reason: due to the low light intensity, the production of vitamin D drops drastically and the hair can no longer be sufficiently supplied with nutrients due to the poorer blood circulation in the scalp.

One reason for this: "Since we generally move less in the dark autumn and winter months, acids and toxins can be deposited in our cells and put a strain on the immune system. The acid-base balance is thus somewhat out of balance, another cause of hair loss," emphasises Frank Felte.

The diet is also different in the cold season. We tend to neglect healthy, vitamin-rich foods and prefer to eat hearty and sweet foods. A gross mistake, because several scientific studies have proven how important important sources of vitamins and minerals are for keeping skin, hair and nails healthy. To do this, we need to supplement our daily diet with vitamins, minerals and other vital nutrients. These are not produced by the body itself and must therefore be supplied in the diet, for example through fresh fruit and vegetables, meat, fish, cereals and dairy products. They have many essential functions for the skin, hair and nails.

Fortunately, nature provides active support for beautiful hair, skin and nails, even in autumn and winter. According to Frank Felte, a combination of biotin, folic acid, selenium, iron, zinc and vitamins B2 and B3 is recommended. Biotin is the beauty vitamin par excellence and ensures shiny, full hair, strong nails and radiant skin. "Biotin, which we at Natura Vitalis use for example in our product 'Skin - Hair - Nails', is an important building block that our body needs for healthy skin, hair and fingernails. It also relieves dry and itchy skin in winter and, just like selenium, makes it glow again," explains Frank Felte.

Folic acid, on the other hand, stimulates the growth of nails and makes them stronger and healthier. In the same way, folic acid is very healthy for the skin and ensures a beautiful appearance. The trace element zinc fulfils many important tasks in our body. Especially important for skin and hair is the fact that it is needed for cell division on the one hand and for cell growth on the other. Zinc and iron also support the maintenance of healthy nails and beautiful skin. Frank Felte: "All natural vital substances combined, the cold season can come with confidence, because through intelligent beauty care from the inside, skin, hair and nails shine as beautifully as in summer!"
