Dull and brittle nails can permanently spoil the mood. If the appearance of your nails leaves much to be desired, it's time to start the procedures for their strengthening and growth. And in a couple of weeks you can admire your strong and long marigolds.
Analyze your diet. Quite often problems with nails indicate that the body lacks important vitamins and trace elements. Give up hard diets. Eat foods rich in vitamin A, B, calcium, iodine and iron, every day. These substances contribute to the growth and strengthening of nails. Take a multivitamin.
Use rubber gloves while working around the house. The fact is that the chemicals that make up the majority of detergents have a very negative effect on the nails. They are able to slow growth and make them thin and layered.
Use the right manicure tools. The fillets must be made of glass or plastic. Metal can break the structure of the nail.
Use only high-quality cosmetics for nails. Apply a special lacquer for their growth three to four times a week. Do not forget to lubricate nails a nutritious cream for the night.
Moisturize regularly the skin around the nails. If the cuticle is dry and cracked, they will grow slowly. Use a special moisturizing cream and cuticle oil. To remove varnish, use products that do not contain acetone. He dries the nail platinum strongly and irritates the cuticle.
Give the nail the right shape. If you have thin, often broken nails, cut them short, but not under the root. Give the nails a semicircular shape with a nail file. Then they will not cling to their clothes and will not break by accident.
Let's rest nails from the varnish at least twice a week. The varnish does not allow the nail plate to breathe, which causes the nail to thinen and break.
Do baths to grow and strengthen the nails at least twice a week. For brittle nails are useful baths of warm olive oil with the addition of a few drops of liquid vitamin A and lemon juice. For nail growth, make a bath of warm saline and a teaspoon of iodine. By the way, sea salt is more useful than ordinary cookery.
