As seen in Woman’s World magazine! Dry winter air can zap the moisture from our fingernails, making them more prone to splitting and breaking. Making matters worse, the body’s production of keratin, the protein that keeps nails strong, drops by 30% after age 50. The delicious fix: Eat two eggs daily. These gems are loaded with cysteine, an amino acid that binds keratin together for more resilient nails. Plus, the yolks are rich in biotin, a B vitamin that’s been shown to boost nail thickness by 25% in two weeks.
One of the easiest ways to foster joy and good health: tailoring your clothes to your unique needs. When deciding what to wear, consider the radiant energy of the colors in your closet. Each one has an effect on your body, and color therapy has been used for centuries in the treatment of disease and injury. Anxious? Pick a blue top, which promotes tranquility and calmness. Sad? Add a pop of yellow. The sunny color has been shown to boost cheer. Grieving? Choose pink, which can help heal sadness and loss.
