Nails are an important part of any girl’s makeup. Healthy and well maintained nails not only look impressive, they also enhance the overall look of a person. However, at the same time, weak and brittle nails are best left unshown. Brittle nails are a common problem amongst men and women, and are often a result of poor diet. Treating brittle nails is not a very difficult problem although, and you can easily use some handy tips at home for this problem –
> Soak your fingers in lukewarm salt water for some time. Wipe them clean and then apply some moisturizing cream. You may also do the same with tea tree oil for better results.
> Take a cotton ball, soak it fully with castor oil or olive oil and swab it gently on finger nails.
> Some times, lack of proper nutrients – vitamins and minerals in one’s diet also cause brittle nails. Intake of mineral zinc is often beneficial in treating brittle nails. Also include adequate amount of vitamin A, iron and calcium in your diet.
> To make brittle nails soft, apply some mild moisturizing cream over your fingers and nails and wear cotton gloves before going to sleep. This will keep your nails moist and soft.
> Avoid using acetone on a regular basis because they tend to reduce moisture in finger nails and make them dry. If you must use it, then make sure you use a good quality one.
So happy nail keeping !
