We all want strong, thick, and beautiful nails. Growing your healthiest nail ever starts with fine-tuning your everyday habits. It’s painful when nails split and break especially if your occupation is related to dealing with people.
However, if you want to have a good manicure, the first thing is to immediately treat damaged and dry nails.
Below are four do-it-yourself (DIY) tips to help you repair your damaged and dry nails in the comfort of your home:
1. Soak nails in olive oils.
For weak nails and thin nail, soak them in an extra virgin olive oil for 10-15 minutes a day. You can perform the procedure in a month. This inexpensive home beauty treatment will help fortify damaged, weak or peeling nails.
2. Don’t overuse your nails.
Your fingers shouldn’t be the tools to open soda cans or any other kinds of drinks. Use a pen or other object rather than your fingernail.
3. Eat biotin-rich foods.
Make sure your diet features foods rich in biotin, such as liver, cooked eggs, whole grains, cauliflower and avocado, among others. In addition to other health benefits, biotin can help strengthen and thicken nails. You can also take a biotin supplement, if necessary.
4. Keep your hands covered with a nail coating.
Even if you use clear polish, protect your nails with nail coating anyways. Another thing to follow is to waterproof your nails with good oil. These two process keep your nails protected from chemicals and water.
