I am receiving a lot of questions similar to 'How I can manage to have such healthy, strong, long nails'.
I must say, that it is a long process because the condition of our nails are reflecting the condition of our body.
First and the most important is my daily diet. I am keeping an eye on what I am eating (a lot of various vegetables, fruits, seeds, etc) and I am careful to eat food full of vitamins and minerals
-calcium (lack of it is making nails breakable, thin and weak)
-iron/ magnesium/ zinc/ silicon (lack of them is making nails brittle, with tendency to break).
I also really care about my hand and nail daily routine.
1. Essence cuticle cream- I was using a lot of different cuticle care products but I found this one very good for my nails. This is a soft cream which after applying is melting directly to my cuticles and keeping them fully hydrated. I use it once per day and my cuticles are always soft and manageable to push them back.
2. Cuticle oils- my favourites for now are cuticle oil from Salon Services and from MakeUp Gallery (just £1). Both of them condition my cuticles very well, make them soft and healthy. I am applying this oil daily.
3. Hand cream/ lotion/ oil- for a beautiful look it is not just nails. I am using a lot of different hand creams/ baby oils/ lotions to keep my hands and whole nails fully hydrated, protected from dirt, coldness, sun , etc
4. Glass/ paper files/ wooden stick- I am trying to use only good products and avoid using metal files at all.
ADVICE: Be patient. It may take a while to see some changes and first results. But this whole process is definitely worth putting all your effort into to have beautiful and healthy looking nails and hands. Because even wearing the most beautiful and glamorous dress when your nails are looking awful and bad you will feel not totally dressed.
