As a nail polish aficionado, the amount of times I paint my nails, use nail polish remover and repaint on a monthly basis can’t be healthy for my nails.
In fact, nails that are exposed to that many chemicals can become brittle and weak over time.
There are many nail strengtheners available:
- OPI Original Nail Envy Strengthener
- Formula X Strengthen Nail Strengthener
- Sally Hansen Complete Care 4-in-1 Nail Treatment
But there are also steps you can take and home remedies that will do the trick.
Biotin is a known supplement that has proven to improve nail health. Nails take about six months to replace themselves so it will take a few months before the biotin supplements begin showing results.
Avoid acrylics completely. If the thought is to much for you to bear, then reduce the number of times you get acrylic nails done. The results will be significant and your nails will thank you.
Don’t peel off your nail polish. The peeling damages your nail by stripping the initial layers.
Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. The number of times you wash your hands to the number of times you use hand sanitzer can also affect your nail health.
Olive oil and coconut oil are your best friends. Extra virgin please.
Option 1: Soak your nails for 10-15 minutes every day in olive oil. Do this for a month then twice a week afterwards. Olive oil will help to strengthen nails that are weak and promote nail growth.
Option 2: Massage coconut oil on your nails and hands, focusing on your nail bed and cuticles. Do this every day before bedtime. Put on cotton gloves afterwards to keep them moisturized throughout the night.
