Beautiful and healthy nails are sometimes an unattainable dream for many women. Due to the environment, poor lifestyle and poor nutrition, the nails become very brittle, the plate delamination appears, and they practically stop growing. Today we will talk about how to grow beautiful nails at home.
Down with bad habits
If you have a habit of biting your nails or tearing off hangnails with your teeth, stop immediately! This will lead to damage to the delicate skin (burrs), as well as to the destruction of the nail plate. Sharp bitten nail tips begin to exfoliate, which is transmitted further along the entire nail bed. This affects the weakening of the nails and slow growth.
It is no secret that vitamins help improve the health of not only nails, but hair, skin, bones and other human organs. For nails, it is especially important to include foods rich in vitamins A, B, C and E in the diet. These are greens, carrots, oranges and tangerines, chicken eggs, milk, cottage cheese and much more. You can buy a vitamin complex and drink it in a course.
Nourishing cuticle oil
In professional cosmetics stores, you can find a special cuticle oil for nails. It is usually clear in color and odorless. The oil is applied to the cuticle and rubbed into the nail with a massage movement. Such oils can be rich in vitamins, minerals that nourish the nails and help stimulate blood circulation, which affects the acceleration of nail growth.
Reinforcing protective coatings
For particularly brittle nails or for nails that are prone to delamination, it is worth purchasing a protective agent. It is a clear liquid, similar to lacquer. It should be applied in the morning or evening. Such a tool will help protect nails from exposure to water, chemicals (household cleaning chemicals for the home).
Effective baths and treatments for nails
This procedure is performed only in the salon. Special paraffin is melted to a temperature of 50-55 degrees and applied to the hands. Paraffin improves blood circulation, helps protect the skin from external irritants and nourishes the cuticle and nail plate. Not infrequently, the master can add vitamins to the paraffin.
