15 Feb Glow Up and Out of Your Winter Rut
The winter months can be harsh on our skin, hair, and even nails. Not only must we deal with the uncomfortable colder temperatures, but the chapped lips, dry skin, and frizzy hair that comes with it. Dry winter air can deplete your body of moisture necessary to maintain healthy skin, hair, and nails. If you aren’t hydrating properly and getting adequate nutrients in your diet, it will show in your outward appearance. At Innovating Vitality, our Glow Up IV drip therapy was formulated specifically for getting your skin out of its dry, lifeless winter rut. With hydrating ingredients like vitamin C, vitamin B-complex, biotin, and glutathione, our Glow Up IV drip therapy contains the most important vitamins and minerals for healthier skin, hair, and nails.
How Nutrients Keep You Glowing
Vitamin C isn’t just for staving off winter colds, it also helps to stave off winter skin. Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, brightens dark spots, reduces fine lines, and boosts collagen production (the protein responsible for keeping skin elastic and youthful). Topical vitamin C products are popular for their anti-aging and skin brightening benefits but vitamin C in food or supplement form (or administered through IV drip therapy) is just as (if not more) effective for skin health. Additionally, vitamin C is necessary to produce collagen, the building block of skin, hair, and nails. Increasing your vitamin C intake will help you create glowing skin, stronger nails, and healthier hair.
Vitamin B-complex contains the 8 different classes of B vitamins, all of which are beneficial for your skin health. B vitamins can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and soothe irritated, acne prone skin. For those who struggle with dry skin and redness (especially during winter months), B-complex vitamins can help to balance natural skin oils and leave skin looking hydrated and healthy. B-complex vitamins are an important ingredient in our Glow Up IV drip therapy.
Biotin is part of the vitamin B-complex. Like all B vitamins, biotin is essential for maintaining a healthy body. It’s even more important for maintaining healthy hair and nails. Biotin stimulates keratin production, the main protein in hair and nails. Although some hair care and skin care products list biotin as a main ingredient, there is little evidence to suggest bitcoin is beneficial when used topically. Our Glow Up IV drip therapy delivers biotin directly to your bloodstream where it can be used to stimulate hair growth and strengthen brittle nails.
Glutathione is an antioxidant produced in our cells. Over time, glutathione decreases due to age, stress, and environmental factors. Glutathione has many health benefits, including reducing oxidative stress by fighting free radicals that can cause damage to the skin. Glutathione helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and may even have a skin brightening effect. Glutathione lowers the production of melanin in your skin, the substance that gives your skin, hair, and eyes its color. This powerful antioxidant helps to restore your natural skin tone to your original, non-sun damaged color. People with melanin rich skin may take longer to see results of skin lightening with glutathione due to their darker complexion.

Tips for Treating Your Winter Skin, Hair, and Nails
Treating your dry skin, dull hair, or brittle nails starts from the inside. Without the proper nutrients, your body can’t produce cells and proteins responsible for giving you a healthy outward appearance. Glow Up IV drip therapy delivers these vital nutrients directly to your bloodstream so your body can make use of those nutrients instantly. It’s also important to keep your skin hydrated by applying moisturizer daily. Look for a daily moisturizer that contains SPF protection as well to protect your skin from harmful UV rays. For healthier hair, make sure you’re using moisturizing conditioner. If your hair is dry or damaged, consider using a hydrating hair mask once a week. Brittle or dry nails are typically a sign of lack of nutrients, but cold, dry air in winter can also contribute. Use a cuticle serum to hydrate and protect your nails from harsh winter air. Don’t let dry skin, hair, and nails get the best of you. Schedule your Glow Up IV drip therapy and get back to being the best radiant and hydrated version of yourself.
