Nail care

      Long and beautiful nails… isn’t just that a dream of most women? Many of us go to nail studious and apply fake ones, because their natural nails never grow as long as they would like them to have. They break, split easily and never look good.
      Nails, as everything else, they need to get care of. They don’t just “exist” looking good. Many of us don’t have very strong nails. Weak ones may be hereditary, as your hair or skin color. Somebody of your ancestors had it, and you have it too. Here, the question is not whether you inherited it or not, but what can we do about it?
      First you may take a look at your nutrition, if you are consuming enough quality food, packed with essential vitamins (fruits, vegetables, seeds, – but not roasted and salted, because these aren’t doing good, but are actually bad for your skin and nails). If in this direction things somehow look acceptable the problem must been taken care of directly, meaning not only through nutrition, so inner help but also from the outside. 

How to treat nails in order to make them look gorgeous?

There are a few steps you need to follow:
     1.Hand washing
Although washing your hands is necessary for your personal hygiene it is not the best thing when it comes to nails. Try not to over-wash your hands. When you wash them be careful what kind of soap you are using because cheap soaps usually dry hands and nails. You may want to try soaps that are PH neutral, so they won’t interfere with your “natural chemistry”.
     2.After hand-wash
After washing your hands, especially if you used an unknown soup, or feel you washed them a lot try to put hand cream on your hands and on the nails. I am emphasizing “on nails” because many people when cream their hands, don’t pay attention and may be, that the nails get from only a little till none of the cream, which will lead to dryness and they may become easily breakable. So, insist to cream each nail on your each finger, even if you don’t have problem with all of them.
     3.There exist small hand creams that fit easily in every purse. Purchase one and keep it always in your purse. (This way it will always be at hand, when during the day it will occur to you to use it. It will take some time to get used to using it, but don’t quit, even if you use it ones a day it is more than nothing!)
     4.To use hand creams during the day for many may be not possible, because a certain work, that exclude using solutions that include some fat, or just never remembers, whatever the reason, you are still not hopeless. You may write somewhere (the fridge, by the door, etc.) to use a hand cream in the morning before you leave home and/or to use it every evening when you go to bed. This last one, in the evening should be accessible for everyone.
    5.Use a hand cream always after a shower, or bath, because than not only the pores of your skin get larger, but also your nails, which are much more permeable than your skin, become more receptive and the   nutrients, can get much better in them. If you don’t do this, they will dry even more after the contact with the water.
     6.In the evening, before you go to bed the creaming must be abundant, if you have longer nails, than don’t concentrate only on the top of your nails, but put an amount also on the inner side, because there the hand cream may stay longer, doesn’t wipe down as easily during your sleep, so the nails can get a 7-8 hour hydration!
     7.Use a nail hardener at start 2-3 times a day, after two weeks, if you start to see a difference, than it may be enough only once. But this depends how your nails react. Some may see a difference and get stronger nail faster, for some may take a while. If they got strong enough you may use the nail hardener only once a week.
     8.Do not use nail enamel all the time. Make breaks. For example, after 2-3 weeks of using make a break of 5 days, or even a week, when you cream them, use a nail hardener on the whole nail or only on the tip of them, after case. They also need to breathe, just like you need vacation.
     9.Don’t over use the nail file. Use it only when you cut them and need a little bit smoothing and when you use it, than make sure that you file only in one direction, otherwise you will make micro-fissures that may become bigger and eventually lead to breaks.
    10.And finally equip yourself with some patience, because repairing broken and nails in a poor state takes time, a general estimation is around 1 month, till they can regenerate.
Beautiful nails
