If you want the best skin, nails, and hair, you may want to start from the inside with beauty drinks. While all those creams and liquids we slather on our skin and hair can help, nothing beats a healthy diet. And one of the easiest ways to boost your diet is to try some tasty, healthy beauty drinks. They’ll supercharge your diet without radically changing the way you eat. Here are several trendy beauty drinks that will nourish your hair, nails and skin.

Turmeric latte

One of the top trendy beauty drinks that has been taking the coasts by storm is the turmeric latte. This soothing drink combines turmeric with whole or almond milk for a creamy and savory confection.

You’ll need the best turmeric for this recipe. It should be a bright yellow color, instead of the muted colors you see pre-packaged in the spice aisle at the grocery store. You may want to hit up farmer’s markets or organic stores. Then you heat up the milk and add the turmeric to taste. Add a sprinkle of black pepper to the top, which is supposed to help activate the health benefits of the turmeric.

The turmeric latte is a good way to get added protein from milk for improved hair. And, turmeric is a powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant.

Whey protein

This is possibly one of the easiest to prepare. If you want to help your hair and nails, you’ll want to add protein to your diet to boost keratin production. A scoop of whey protein added to a smoothie is the perfect way to add a little easy protein to your diet. You can also mix whey powder with water or milk for a quick fix. As a bonus, it can also help you control your appetite.

As a side note, there are a lot of ways to get more creative with protein powder. Add some to your oatmeal in the morning, or you can even add it to your muffins, pancakes, waffles, or any other baked goods.

Fruit and vegetable smoothies

This healthy favorite is a great way to pack your diet full of antioxidant rich fruits that can help bust free radicals in the skin. Plus, there’s the milk and yogurt that add protein to the system. And fruit smoothies are just tasty. For a super food antioxidant boost, opt for a basic blueberry smoothie, blending milk, yogurt and fruit to taste.

Another option involves strawberry and banana smoothies, which both contain biotin, a necessary vitamin for strong hair and nails. Another healthy smoothie idea is avocado and milk. Avocados are rich in beauty-boosting vitamin E. You can add some fruit juice or other ingredients if you’re not big on the taste of avocado.

A mineral known as silica can also boost hair, skin and nails, so bulk up on foods that contain this ingredient, such as cucumbers. Blend cucumbers with yogurt for a boost of protein and silica.

If you want an extra boost of antioxidants, considering brewing a cup of strong green tea and adding it to your smoothie.
