Common Beauty Questions Asked and Answered

We’ve all got beauty questions. Sometimes products make claims, and we’re not sure if those are real or just hype. In this post, I’ll answer some of the most common beauty questions.

Can I make my hair grow faster?

Not really. You can, however, improve the strength of your hair and improve blood flow to the scalp which gives you healthier hair. Try scalp massages, and use a good shampoo and moisturizing conditioner. Products like Biosilk Silk Therapy protect your hair from heat damage and stop breakage. Split ends can actually make your hair look shorter, so you can give the illusion of longer hair if you keep it healthier.

Can you erase sun damage?

Nothing can fully fix the damage, but you can minimize what’s already been done and lower the chances of more sun damage. Use products like Olay Regenerist to moisturize your skin and minimize some of those lines, sunspots, and the premature aging of your face. Use sunscreen regularly! That means every day, even if it’s cloudy outside. Many daily moisturizers have sunscreens built in.

Can I really make my hair shinier, my nails grow faster, and my skin look healthier by taking supplements?

Yes and no. You can get healthier-looking skin, shinier hair, and stronger nails by changing your diet. Essential fatty acids are important for the health of your hair and skin, and you can get that in a supplement. You also, however, need protein, and that’s not typically offered in a supplement. Eat walnuts, salmon, and an extra slice of chicken on your daily sandwich, and you’ll get the best results.

Can you fix thinning hair?

Again, it’s a yes and no answer. If your hair is fine textured, no amount of ‘fixes’ are going to change that. You can, however, make it appear thicker by using volumizing shampoos and conditioners and other products. If the problem is hair that is thinning, it might be your diet. Essential fatty acids can fix that problem, but you should see your doctor if you’re losing a lot of hair or it appears noticeably thinner. It could be a medical or medication problem that is causing your thin hair.
