How to Strengthen Your Nails
Chipping, brittle nails that are yellow are signs of weak nails. We apply acrylic products and press on nails only to the nails to make our hands beautiful. Consequently, all this does is tear them apart. Even nail polish makes them weak. Now, having said that, let’s learn how to make nails harder.
Tea Tree Oil and Vitamin E. Tea tree oil and vitamin E team up for an essential job of strengthening the nails. If you can’t find the combination, mix one spoonful of tea tree oil with a few drops of vitamin E. Rub over your hands and massage the nails. This will promote growth and prevent fungus as well as other infections.
Use Cuticle Oil. Use cuticle oil daily to moisturize your fingers and nail beds. Cuticle oil has plenty of vitamins, and citric acids to prevent drying, breaking nails. If you want to speed along the results, use everyday or night before going to bed.
Olive Oil and Lemon Juice. Use only a spoonful of olive oil and mix it with a few drops of pure lemon juice. Massage thoroughly on hands and nails and let it soak in. You should wear a pair of soft gloves to bed, a couple times a week. In no time at all should you notice stronger nails.
No Nail Polish. Most of us like a painted nail, however, sometimes it’s best to just go natural. The natural nail is becoming increasingly popular, while the nail extension seems to be taking a back seat. Nail polish makes the hand pretty, but it tends to dehydrate the nails.
Sea Salt and Lemon Juice. This recipe calls for two spoonfuls of sea salt and two drops of lemon juice. Pour this mixture in a bowl of lukewarm water and soak your hands in it for 10 or 15 minutes. Do this regime twice a week and watch your nails become stronger and longer.
Add Biotin to Your Diet. Ask your nutritionist for advice and they will likely tell you to use Biotin for nails as well as hair and skin. However, you may not see any results soon. This may take a couple of months to work, nonetheless, it will.
Avoid False Nails. You spend so much time and money at the salon getting your nails done so they will grow. Now that they have, you want to take the acrylic nail off only to have your own nails break. The acrylic nail destroys the natural nail. Stop doing this and give your nails their identity back.
If you need to remove those yellow stains from your nails, add whitening toothpaste to a little lemon juice and scrub. Then soak in olive oil for a deep conditioning.
