2679030091 67b25cdfe4 o Ingredients & vitamins to prevent hair loss

The SkinFood Hop Beer Hair Wash that I’m currently using contains Vitamin H which is commonly known as Biotin, often recommended for strengthening hair and nails. 

From what I’ve read, Biotin is a water-soluble vitamin produced in the body by certain types of intestinal bacteria and obtained from food. Considered part of the B complex group of vitamins, Biotin is necessary for the metabolism of fats, carbohydrates, and amino acids. While bacteria in the intestines produce enough Biotin for the bodies of most people, Biotin can also be obtained from a variety of foods including soybeans and other legumes, egg yolks, nuts, and organ meats.

Ingredients that can cause sun sensitivity

I’m a bit unhappy because I discovered a brand new pigmented spot near the corner of my left eye.  This, despite the skin care products I’ve been using!  I’ve been mulling over the reason and I think I found the answer in a little window located to the left side of my bed.  While it is covered, there is a little gap that lets in some early morning sunlight.  I think that’s causing the damage.  But the question is, why wasn’t there any noticeable damage before as the window has always been there?

I can’t read those tiny ingredient lists

I don’t know about you but I have a major issue when it comes to reading those ingredient lists in fine prints.  They’re all SO tiny and I can hardly see them!  I have to squint my eyes really hard.  Well, of course it doesn’t help that age is catching up and my vision has turned poorer. 

Anyway, if you have a similar problem like me and you do want to read those ingredients on your products without having to resort to using glasses or a magnifier, then a good solution is to use a magnifying sheet.
