Enhancing the Beauty of Your Nails
Aside from regularly applying the Moroccan Argan oil on your nails here are some tips to enhance the health and beauty of your nails.
- Trim your nails regularly. Clip your nails straight with slightly rounded edges. This prevents nail splitting and makes your nails look longer.
- Massage your hands regularly. Aside from our feet, our hands are the most abused parts of our body. Take good care of them and massage them to promote blood circulation. This also aids in promoting nail growth.
- When your nail breaks or tears apart, don’t bite the hanging nail. Instead clip it with clippers.
- Eat healthy food groups. Pick out food packed with vitamins, calcium, potassium and fatty acids. They aid in keeping nails healthy.
- Drink carrot juice. Carrot juice is rich in phosphorous and calcium. Phosporous and calcium make nails stronger.
- Use a nail polish remover. When you are fond of using nail polish, remove the polish using a gentle nail remover as much as possible. Do not use blades as they damage the surface of your nails. And let your nails breathe once in a while by not wearing polish for a few days or so.
