Nails say a lot about a person. They show how good grooming and hygiene are. They can sometimes also talk a little about the health of a person. Beautiful, well cared for nails can be sexy and attractive and could just be a mark or a break for that potential soul mate.
Keeping your nails strong and healthy and looking good does not need to be a lot of work. Here are some tips that can really help.
- Be careful when cutting your nails. They can break or crack much easier when they are fresh out of a shower and still wet. Use a good file sometimes avoiding the use of nail clippers. This will gently mold the nails without the risk of fracturing them.
- Be careful, many nail polish removers use very strong solvents and can damage your nails over time. They are very effective at removing paint, but are they worth it? Look for mild strippers that do not contain acetone.
- Keep your nails hydrated. Just like you, your nails must stay hydrated to be healthy. You can use a sweet oil like coconut or castor oil the night before bedtime to keep your nails healthy.
- Need thicker nails? Take biotin every day, about 2.5 milligrams a day. It has been proven to be very effective for many people to strengthen nails. In about 6 months, you can really notice a difference.
- Polish is beautiful, but from time to time, the natural look can really be nice. Try to give your nails a break from time to time. Your nails will get more oxygen, look great and be better off.
- Do you get all your nutrients in your diet? Strong and healthy nails depend on good nutrition. Eat a lot of fruits and vegetables for their natural nutritional benefits. Consider taking a multivitamin supplement to supplement your diet. Drink a lot of water.
- Remove the gloves. If you work around the house with cleaners, protect them. This will go a long way in helping to keep the skin on your hands as well.
