How to Care for Your Nails at Home?
Nails are considered the first signs of looking healthy and well-groomed. We keep in touch with many people all day long and we shake hands.
Moreover, most of the time we contact the person in front of us for the first time. Dental, hand and nail care have always been important factors in the first impression. Regular maintenance is essential to have nails that look healthy in business and social life. Hand and nail care is done under the control of a hairdresser and a professional. However, it is possible to have clean, tidy, healthy, well-groomed nails as if they were removed from the hairdresser with simple maintenance methods in the home environment. For those who do not want to waste time going to a hairdresser or a manicurist, home nail tips are as follows;
When hand and nail care, moisturizing cream should always be used first. Nails affected by heat and cold react instantly. Moisturizing cream applied to hands after each hand wash nourishes the skin and nails and prevents it from drying out.
Lemon juice is very effective in nail care. It is enough to immerse the nails in lemon juice for a few minutes or rub them with a lemon peel in order to strengthen the nails that break very quickly, crack, change color. Lemon juice and peel strengthen the nails while softening hands and preventing spots.
Another way to prevent color changes on nails and hands is water and salt care. Water and salt show exfoliating effect and helps to remove dead skin.
The nails lose their strength mostly due to chemicals, they get a lifeless appearance. Gloves should be preferred to protect against heavy chemicals such as detergent.
In order for the nails to achieve the desired moisture, they should be washed frequently and the person should drink plenty of water.
For excessively dry hands, using skin-friendly products such as cream or olive oil, sweet almond oil, and sleeping on the hands with socks or gloves, provides stronger nails and skin.
