Have you heard about homemade cuticle creams and nail strengtheners? If not, this is the right time to know. Why do we need to buy expensive nail straighteners, cuticle oils etc..? We can make our own at home easily within very few minutes. So, what can act as a good nail strengthener and cuticle oil naturally? I will list you few, you would be surprised.
2. Petroleum Jelly (Eg. Vaseline)
3. Lip Balms
4. Almond and Vitamin E Oils
5. Milk Cream
6. Coconut Oil
Did you notice? All the above listed ingredients are very nourishing ones. When they help nails and provide nourishment, nail breakage will be completely stopped within few days. Breakage is caused due to nail weakness and dryness. To prevent weakness, we should take good nutritious food and avoid much water related works like washing clothes, dishes etc. (Better wear gloves while working with water). To prevent dryness, we can use the above mentioned products without any fear.
After every bath and before going to bed every night, apply little petroleum jelly, lip balm or any essential oils on your nails and cuticles. Gently massage with your finger tips for 5 to 10 minutes. Go to sleep, wake up in the morning to see your shiny nails :) It is 100% true that nails which get nourishment never breaks due to dryness. As this is winter, it is very essential to moisture and nourish nails to prevent them from chapping and peeling.
Massaging nails with milk cream and washing them after 10 minutes also helps in strengthening nails up to an extent. You can also perform a simple, nourishing nail soak at home. Take a small bowl of creamy raw milk. Dip your nails and allow the milk nutrition to work on your nails and cuticles. Wash off with clean water and towel dry. Moisturize your nails with your favorite petroleum jelly or any essential oil. This nail soak can be followed once in a week to prevent your beautiful nails and add extra beauty and strength to them. Keep in mind, healthy nails grows longer and stronger.
Butter and coconut oil can act as a very good cuticle cream naturally, so use them in your nails without any fear of side effects, because they are all natural. Intake of Biotin and Calcium rich foods also lead to healthy nails and cuticles. My favorite nail moisturizer is Himalaya Lip Balm. I use it every night and this is the first time in my life my nail is stronger and longer than never before :P Try it or any other lip balms to nourish your nails every night and let me know the results..
