Cure de biotine : que pouvez-vous en attendre ? - MyPureSkin

Biotin treatment: what can you expect from it?

Although it is less often mentioned than vitamin C by health professionals, biotin is also an essential nutrient for your skin, your nails and even your hair, as we explained in our article on the subject .

Furthermore, what we also know under the name "vitamin B8" can do more than avoid deficiencies, when used in the right way.

Improvement in the shine and suppleness of the scalp, thickening of the hair and prevention of significant hair loss: here is the program offered by biotin treatments as a food supplement from several brands.

However, is it really possible to improve the shine, suppleness and resistance of your hair beyond what you can normally expect without a deficiency? And if so, how can the nutricosmetics concerned keep such promises?

In other words: how to recognize effective food supplements in which to place your trust to benefit from the benefits associated with a biotin treatment?

At MyPureSkin, we have taken the time to explore these questions: we guide you to help you make the right choice.

How to choose a biotin-based formula?

Biotin alone is an essential nutrient for maintaining the quality of your hair, nails and skin (among other things). However, by combining it with certain active ingredients to create synergy (i.e. teamwork), it becomes possible to offer your body beauty benefits that go beyond simple maintenance.

This is why the choice of your biotin-based food supplement must be based in part on the links between the ingredients that compose it.

In this regard, the active ingredients to look for as a priority are:

  • Zinc;
  • Vitamin E;
  • Vitamin B12.

To understand the importance of these elements and their association with biotin in preventing “abnormal” hair loss, we must look at the state of scientific research in this area.

Zinc and vitamin E: control the metabolism of trace elements to prevent baldness

It was through studies such as that published in 2013 by Min Seong Kil 1 's team that it was possible to determine one of the main factors of hair loss.

We discover that disturbances in zinc metabolism play a key role in the appearance of hair problems. This primacy of zinc in certain processes has also been verified for the skin, as indicated by the results of a study published by Youichi Ogawa in 2019 2 .

Furthermore, following Min Seong Kil's conclusions, other scientific initiatives have emerged, focusing more particularly on possible areas of treatment.

It is in particular thanks to research such as that of 2020 carried out by the team of Irina N. Kondrakhina 3 that it is now possible for consumers of nutricosmetics to have a grid of recommendations to make their choice.

We discover, among other things, that the decisive criterion is the set of synergies at work in the formulas of the food supplements evaluated.

Indeed, we now know that vitamin E is a factor in regulating cell death by oxidative stress that is too strong when combined with zinc.

It has also been established that alopecia is characterized by lower concentrations of zinc in the body and by a slowed metabolism for this trace element.

Vitamin B complex: hair color and volume “within reach”

Furthermore, it was on the occasion of works such as those of Hind M. Almohanna and his collaborators, published in the meantime in 2018 4 , that the scientific community was able to pinpoint the probable role of certain groups of micronutrients such as vitamin B complexes in certain aspects of hair aging.

As the researcher specifies in his publication, vitamin B12 supplementation would prevent premature whitening of the hair (canities).

In addition, vitamin B8 (biotin) is presented as one of the elements whose progressive decrease in deficient individuals (in particular due to their aging process) explains hair loss.

This is the reason why a food supplement targeting hair problems must today, to claim to be effective, contain biotin.

How to organize your treatment?

Have you chosen your food supplement? Perfect. You now need to organize your treatment.

If occasional use necessarily contributes to improving the quality of your hair, it is by composing a well-thought-out beauty routine that you will be able to make the most of the benefits of the product you have chosen.

Free radicals (source of oxidative stress) being a key factor in premature aging, you will benefit from supporting the effects of your nutricosmetic with a few adjustments to your plate if your diet is generally unbalanced.

In this regard, you can choose, at least for the duration of your treatment, to:

  • Make sure that your diet gives pride of place to fruits and vegetables;
  • Limit your consumption of tobacco and alcohol products as well as saturated fats;
  • Lengthen your sleep cycles as much as possible;
  • Start or continue daily physical exercise.

Furthermore, if brands tend to make recommendations regarding the methods of use of their product, a biotin treatment generally proves effective more quickly if consumption is daily over the entire period of the treatment.

Biotin treatment: what can you actually expect from it?

To the extent that the presence of the active ingredients mentioned above determines the level of results, a biotin treatment alone will not have "standard" effects in the sense that the formulas vary from one nutricosmetic to another.

However, if you choose to use a food supplement whose formula contains at least a combination of biotin, vitamin B12 and zinc, you can expect a plural action, as shown by feedback from MyCollagenGlow consumers.

A nutricosmetic made for your hair: what biotin cures promise, MyCollagenGlow offers you

Reading the blog articles of many brands, we realize that the promises are multiplying.

On the program: less thinning, less oily hair, overall healthier.

However, it is difficult to enjoy beauty benefits without a suitable formula.

It is therefore by calling on its proactivity, focused on the latest advances in research in the field, and its expertise that the MyPureSkin team wanted to create a real solution to the problems of premature aging and alopecia: MyCollagenGlow .

From skin to hair, including nails: three-dimensional action

Thanks to its triple target (hair, nails and skin), MyCollagenGlow allows you to compose a beauty treatment that makes sense, based on biotin but also other active ingredients.

Indeed, the broad spectrum of action allowed by the formula of this anti-aging nutricosmetic gives you the means to:

  • Restore volume to your hair;
  • Stimulate hair production processes within the pilosebaceous follicle;
  • Support the process of collagen production within your dermis in order to restore some of its elasticity and firmness to your skin;
  • Contribute to the stabilization of the keratinization process in the face of external aggression to protect the health of your hair for longer;
  • Support the natural process of neutralizing free radicals within your body to limit the risks of premature aging of your skin, scalp and nails.

The secret to shiny hair? A unique synergy

To offer such results, our food supplement had to differentiate itself in its combination of ingredients, in their characteristics and in their extraction process.

Thus, far from being just a concentrate of vitamins and trace elements, the MyCollagenGlow formula is distinguished by a design combining Swiss nutricosmetic genius with the unique quality of active ingredients of natural origin.

To help you take care of your nails, hair and skin before and during your aging process, the MyPureSkin team has recreated natural synergies whose holistic scope echoes the values ​​of our brand.

Indeed, MyCollagenGlow is a nutricosmetic composed of:

  • Biotin (vitamin B8), whose concomitant action with that of other active ingredients stimulates the production of keratin by your body and increases the growth rate of hair follicles
  • Zinc, whose role in maintaining the quality of your hair has been highlighted by numerous studies;
  • A complex of vitamins B5, B6 and B12 whose synergistic integration with biotin significantly increases the results that vitamin B8 alone can offer;
  • Marine collagen peptides with very high bioavailability;
  • Galacto-oligosaccharides, one of the key roles of which is the maintenance of a key element of your immune system: your intestinal flora (much more important than we think in the maintenance of the scalp);
  • Hyaluronic acid whose colossal storage capacity allows it to carry nearly 1000 times its weight in water (in order to guarantee your body excellent hydration);
  • Vitamin E whose anti-oxidant action helps protect your cells from oxidative stress (and therefore premature aging);
  • Beta-carotene, precursor of vitamin A, whose benefits extend from the ability to maintain clear vision to the preservation of cognitive functions and, of course, the quality of the scalp (by helping to preserve your cells from oxidative stress).

So, are you ready to try a first course of MyCollagenGlow based on biotin? Take care of your hair, nails and skin today by making the right choice: targeted nutrition that puts your hair health in the spotlight.
