A good beauty routine is important to maintain the health of your skin, hair and even your nails. However, if you are suffering from brittle nails (nails that tends to be dry, weak and chipping), then it's time to up the ante and gives your nails some extra TLC.
There are many reasons your nail tends to get brittle. Certain gel manicures can cause a bit of damage. Too much use of nail polish, dry weather and washing your dishes can also cause nails to no look their best. Even if you don't regularly manicure your nails, there is a way you can treat this issue. Make your own treatment to improve your nails' health so they look polished.
This simple DIY remedy requires simple but effective ingredients that help to tackle peeling and damaged nails in order to give them a nice sheen.
For this treatment, you will need 1/4 teaspoon of lemon oil, four drops of carrot oil and a teaspoon of coconut oil. "These oils offer omega-6 fatty acids to nourish nails while also being anti-bacterial, which is important on nails and feet," Hope Gillerman, founder of H. Gillerman Organics told a news portal. These are crucial components to your treatment because fungal infection is the primary cause for breakage and peeling of the nails.
Now that you know why it so beneficial, it's time to give it a try. Once you've mixed all your ingredients together, let your fingers soak in the mix. Next, massage gently on nails. Make sure to wash them thoroughly and remove nail polish before you massage the blend all over your nails.
