Flaky nails are a serious obstacle to a beautiful manicure and well-groomed hands. But there are several secrets that will strengthen your marigolds.
First, start eating right and you will strengthen your nails from the inside out. Choose foods that contain vitamins A, C, B6, B3, magnesium, calcium and iron. Be sure to diversify the menu with seaweed, walnuts, honey, wheat bran, apples, prunes, dried apricots. Get vitamin complexes and take them daily.
Secondly, do not forget to take care of your nails. Regular grooming will help make them stronger on the outside. A mixture of olive oil and a few drops of lemon juice is considered a good remedy in the fight for nails. Rub the oil on your nails a couple times a week and, wearing gloves, go to bed.
Baths with sea salt strengthen nails well. It is useful to make a mask for nails and hands. For example, prepare half a cup of ground walnuts, honey, olive oil, and castor oil. Stir the ingredients until a thin slurry, massage your hands and leave for 20 minutes.
Third, do your manicure correctly. Use a strengthening base and an acetone-free nail polish remover. Observe the rules for filing nails: move the file in one direction only. Do not file the nails with a metal file, because it only hurts. Look for specially coated files.
Fourth, do household chores with gloves. This will provide your nails with protection from the negative effects of household chemicals. After the hassle of the housework, apply a suitable cream to your hands.
Put these tips into practice and your nails will answer you with fast growth and strength.
