Healthy nails always shine
Did you know? The health of your nails depends on your overall health. Therefore, it is essential to increase your intake of foods rich in iron, Vitamin A, C, D and calcium for your nails to remain strong and healthy. Let your nails enjoy a rich dose of fresh vegetables, whole grains, nuts and greens.
Petroleum jelly works wonders
Flaunting clean and shiny nails just got easier! Always keep the Vaseline Original Pure Skin Jelly handy and massage your nails gently after every hand wash, every bath and before hitting the bed every night. Doing so prevents loss of moisture, thereby leaving your nourished nails shine forever.
Homemade nail care
Ingredients from your kitchen work best in helping you achieve beautiful, long and shiny nails. Want to give your nails some TLC, here are some easy-peasy recipes at your rescue:
- Olive oil: Olive oil is the hero ingredient that works like magic in healing damaged, brittle nails. All you need to do is soak your nails in a warm tub of olive oil, leave it on for 2 minutes before covering your hands with cotton gloves. You can either keep the gloves on overnight or for an hour. Lastly, rinse with water and moisturise using the Ponds Light Moisturiser Non-Oily Fresh Feel right after.
- Avocado and rose water mix: Your nails love avocado just as much as you do! Soak your nails in a mixture of mashed avocado and rose water to keep dull and brittle nails at bay. Include this in your daily routine for best results.
- Milk: Pour some warm milk into a bowl and dip your nails into the milk. Wait for a few minutes and allow your nails to absorb nourishment from the milk. Rinse your fingers and finish it off with a moisturiser.
