Home Remedies for Nail Care

nail care tipsNail care is a crucial part of natural beauty for human beings. Most people spend a lot of time trying to enhance their looks using beauty products that mainly focus on various sections of the body such as the face. However, all these will count for nothing if you do not know how to take care of your nails.

Similarly, there is no need of spending a lot of cash trying to maintain your nails. You just need to learn the most popular and effective home remedies for nail care and you will save a lot of cash while still maintaining a high sense of beauty and neatness.

Nail Care Home Remedy Options

It is always good to identify the type of nail that you have, in order to plan the most effective treatment.

Flaky Nails

If you have flaky nails, it is advisable to add primrose oil to your diet. This oil contains fatty acids that are very important in the production of nail cells. You can also consume primrose oil supplements as a possible remedy.

Brittle Nails

Brittle nails are normally caused by lack of enough iron in the body but this can be treated by taking foods that are rich in this nutrient. Such foods include red meat, dried nuts and green vegetables. You should also include foods that are rich in vitamins to enhance the growth and development of your nails.

Do not use a nail care product that has formaldehyde. This ingredient is very harmful to this type of nail and this brings the need for better and safer options. People with brittle nails are also advised to soak them in olive oil for no less than 15 minutes. This ensures that the nails and cuticles remain healthy and shining for a long time.

Caring For Fingertips

Just like facial care, your fingertips need some attention before you go to bed. This can be done by massaging nail cream or oil along your nails before bedtime. This option plays a crucial role in maintaining moistness along your fingertips, thus making them look healthy, clean and bright.

Dealing With Discolored Nails

If you have discolored nails, you do not have to start budgeting for expensive nail creams and oils to get rid of the unwanted color. All you have to do is to utilize the role of lemon juice as a natural source of citric acid. This acid plays a crucial role in bleaching the skin but for the case of nails, it will wash away the discolored segment. This restores the natural brightness of your nails. Mix the lemon juice with water, then soak your fingers in it for around 10 to 15 minutes. This should be done regularly and you will notice some positive changes.

Professional Nail Care Services

Depending on the specific type of nail that you have, some natural nail care remedies may fail to work for you. Fortunately, if the home remedy doesn’t do the trick, you can always seek help from nail care professionals.
