It is necessary
Sea salt, iodine, lemon, olive oil, apple cider vinegar, boiled yolk, beeswax, medicated varnish
Soak in sea salt. Pour warm water into a small container and add 1-2 teaspoons of unflavored sea salt. You can add a few drops of iodine if you wish. Stir the salt in the water thoroughly. Dip your fingertips into the solution and hold for 10-15 minutes. Then rinse your hands with warm running water and apply a nourishing cream. Sea salt contains a huge amount of trace elements that strengthen the nail plate.
Prepare a protective ointment. Mash the boiled egg yolk. Then mix the resulting mass with 4 grams of melted beeswax, a few drops of olive oil. Mix thoroughly until smooth. Rub the ointment into the cuticle and nail plate with gentle massage movements.
Use lemon to strengthen your nails. Cut the fruit in half. Then stick your nails into the pulp for a few minutes. You can also lubricate the nail plate with lemon juice. Perform the procedure daily. The fruit acids in lemon juice whiten and strengthen nails slightly.
Olive oil is an excellent remedy for splitting nails. It contains a large amount of nutrients. Mix 1 teaspoon of olive oil with a few drops of lemon juice. Then rub the product thoroughly into the nail plate with a cotton pad. Put on cotton gloves and leave overnight. Already in the morning you will see a healthy shine of nails.
Make an olive oil bath. Heat a small amount of oil in a microwave or water bath. Mix with apple cider vinegar in a 1: 1 ratio. Submerge your nails in the liquid for 20 minutes. After this time, wash your hands in warm water.
Buy medicated varnish from a drug store or beauty supply store. It contains minerals and vitamins needed to strengthen nails. Reapply every other day. Do not use products containing acetone to remove varnish. Give preference to more gentle products, for example, for extended nails.
