You know how some people are described as having won the genetic lottery?
t Yeah, well I have a losing ticket when it comes to certain physical traits.
t I like to call it my D.D.S. (Danny DeVito Syndrome). If you’ve ever seen the movie Twins, you know that Danny DeVito’s character is a genetically engineered twin to Arnold Schwarzenegger’s character. And while Arnold received all the best aspects of their parents, Danny’s character received the leftovers.
t Am I a natural athlete like my father? Nope! Do I have nails that can be used as tools like my mother? I wish! No, I burn and freckle like my mother, instead of inheriting my father’s olive skin. Believe me, I could go on and on. Don’t get me wrong, I’m generally healthy and I know it could be a lot worse but the odds are against me so I have to work at it.
t Part of that is making sure I start my beauty regimen on the inside. I include healthy, nutritional foods in my diet and drink plenty of water but I can always use a little extra help. Enter the Nature’s Bounty® Optimal Solutions® 30 Day Hair, Skin and Nails Challenge.
t For the past month I’ve enjoyed a daily serving of Nature’s Bounty® Optimal Solutions® Hair, Skin and Nails Gummies with my breakfast and, since I’m terrible about taking supplements, I stored them with my cereal so I wouldn’t forget. The strawberry flavored gummies are not only yummy but they are specifically designed for the unique needs of women.
t With vitamin C, vitamin E and biotin, the gummies support my natural beauty from within. During a holiday season filled with baked goods and indulgent foods, knowing I was doing something extra to help the health of my hair, skin and nails made me feel a little less guilty. And feeling good about what I put in my body certainly reflects on the outside.
t As a nail expert I know that biotin is a key component to nail health and including a supplement makes my imperfect nails even better. While I normally don’t share my naked nails, you can see what adopting a healthy lifestyle can do.
t If you have your own version of D.D.S., there’s hope. Try the Nature’s Bounty® Optimal Solutions® 30 Day Hair, Skin and Nails Challenge and see how healthy inner beauty radiates outward. Will you take the 30 Day Challenge? See what other women had to say about it here.
