Why is it so difficult to grow and maintain beautiful nails? One big reason: Nails are not alive; they are dead. If nails aren’t live, then how do they build?. The use of personal care, balanced diet, and a beauty regimen can provide healthy nails in no time.
Nails required hydration. Dry nails can break, peel and become brittle. Drink lots of water to help rehydrate your nails. Wear gloves when you wash dishes. And don’t soak hand in water too long. Every time you have a wash apply moisturizer. Coconut oils help more in this way.
DON’T USE CHEMICAL BASED POLISH
Use polishes that do not contain harmful chemical toxins. Read the ingredients used before buying.
CHOOSE A GOOD REMOVER
Removers which are non-acetone based use mild solvents like ethyl and propylene carbonate etc. They also add soy, glycerine, and panthenol to reduce dryness.
The cuticle is the thin layer, which is doing an excellent job of bacteria prevention. It is fine to lose bits of cuticle skin when trimming hangnails but take care not to cut too much. Do not bite or pull at your cuticles as it can allow bacteria to get in through the cuts. You need to massage the moisturizer into your cuticles every single day using olive or almond oil, to decrease the amount of chemical that soaks in from the polish.
GET A NATURAL METHOD TO STRAIGHTEN NAILS
Mix two tsp castor-oil, two tsp salts, one tsp wheat- germ-oil. Mix and apply to nails. Wipe off after 5 minutes.
SEEK OUT ALTERNATIVES
Few firms now are offering polishes and removers with lesser toxins.
Buffing may look comparatively weak with colors. However, stands for long. Take sufficient time to buff, and trim your nails properly for the attractive look of your nails. You can get a remover made with natural soy and corn. Some also contain vanilla and fruit extracts.
HAVE A HEALTHY DIET
Not only genetics but also our lifestyles and diets determine our overall health – and that translates straight to our nails. There is a nutrition cure for almost every complaint including not growing, pale and brittle nails. You can reduce brittleness by eating foods containing vitamin B; White spots get cleared due to zinc; ridges get prevented with iron; calcium makes them strong; vitamins A and C reduces dryness and tiredness.
