Nail Care - Beauty Tips

Your nails are an important part of your hands and they too need to be taken care of well. Well-kept hands with neat, clean, painted nails are a pleasure to behold. Dirty and unmanaged nails will make your hands look ugly. Your nails need to be strong and healthy for your hands to look beautiful. Here are a few tips on nail care.

  • To harden soft nails soak them in warm olive oil for about 20 minutes on alternate days.
  • For strong nails soak them in a mixture of horsetail.
  • To remove stains from your nails, mix one tablespoon of lemon juice in a cup of water and soak your nails in this liquid for a few minutes.
  • It is not a good idea to remove the cuticles from your nail, as it will make the nail susceptible to infection.
  • If you use nail polish then do not use acetone polish removers.
  • When you wear nail polish, give your nails a break from time to time. Leave them without polish for a few days.
  • For natural nail polish rub petroleum jelly on your nails then buff with a soft cloth.
If you have brittle nails or split or dull nails then here are a few vitamins that will help you:
  • Organic Silica: this will increase the growth of nails and prevent them from becoming brittle.
  • Essential Fatty Acids: Found in most oils are good for healthy and strong nails.
  • Vitamin B especially B5: Important for healthy skin and nails.
  • MSM (Methyl-Sulfonyl-Methane): important for healthy nails.
Ensure that you follow a hand care regime, even it means only applying moisturizer on your hands. Even if you do this regularly it will go a long way in making your hands look better.
