Splitting, breaking, peeling. These are three of the most nail problems that women face. In fact, us women, always aim for a perfect set so we can apply the perfect nail polish with the design we saw over social media. However, our weak nails are always standing in the way. In fact, there are ways you can follow in order to naturally strengthen your nails.
Lessen Water Exposure
Keeping your hands for a long time in water can make them softer and prone to breaking and peeling. For this reason, put on gloves when you are washing dishes, and try to put them out of water when you are planning to soak for a prolonged period of time on the bathtub.
Keep yourself hydrated
Apart from being a good thing for your skin, water is too essential to keep your fingernails strong. Drink a lot of water in order to keep your body hydrated and your nails hard. In addition, a healthy diet that contains proteins is a good way to harden them.
Keep them short
If you are having a problem with weak nails, try to keep them short and cutting them, while you work on making them become stronger. In fact, shorter nails are less prone to breaking because there is less exposure to water and hard surfaces.
Moisturize your cuticles
Instead of spending so much time cutting your cuticles, invest your money on oils and crèmes that are made especially for dry cuticles. In fact, keeping your cuticles dry, can lead to nail peeling and breaking.
Make a nail soak at home
Coconut oil, argon oil, vitamin E oil, tee tree oil, and castor oil, are a great way to help your nails become stronger. Just put a little amount in a bowl and soak each hand for 10 minutes.
