Nails begin to exfoliate and break for many reasons, for example, with a lack of vitamins and minerals, as well as with deviations in the hormonal background. It is possible to restore a healthy look to the nail plates, but it is necessary to correctly, and most importantly, to regularly take care of them.
Start treating nails with taking complex preparations that contain vitamins and minerals. The range of such products in pharmacies is wide, but choose those that are designed specifically for women. Study the annotation well and take the drug according to the scheme that is described in detail in the instructions.
But vitamins alone are not enough, or rather, they act, but slowly. Therefore, strengthen your nails with other available means. Take a lemon and cut it in half. Dip your fingers into the juicy pulp and hold for about 5 minutes. Fruit acids strengthen nails and make them healthy. Also lemon juice slightly whitens the nail plates.
Do a hand bath several times a week. Dissolve some sea salt in a liter of warm water and add a few drops of iodine. Dip your hands into the solution and hold for about 15 minutes. After such a procedure, you can also do a manicure, because your hands will already be prepared for this.
Strengthens nails and pure iodine. Apply the iodine solution to the nail plate using a cotton pad. Perform the procedure before going to bed so that the brown color has time to disappear. Apply iodine to your nails 2-3 times a week, but not more often.
Use hand and nail cream daily. The composition of such products contains not only substances that care for the skin, but also components that strengthen the nails. If you find a special serum that is specially designed to strengthen nails, then this will be the best option. Look through the catalogs that offer a series of cosmetics: usually it is from them that you can buy a serum.
Try not to paint your nails for a while or use special polishes that are rich in nutrients. They are sold in pharmacies and regular supermarkets. If you carry out a number of procedures, then gradually the nails will stop exfoliating and become strong, but this does not mean that you no longer need to take care of them.
