If you just can’t stop trying to follow the tips in this article and you will see that it will be easier to get the first improvements!
2) For long and healthy nails nourish and pamper them!
If you have nails that tend to break or are too soft and bend, you can significantly improve their growth by helping yourself with nourishing and moisturizing packs.
Creating an all-natural DIY beauty mask at home is really simple! Just a little yogurt, extra virgin olive oil, and lemon.
3) Always apply the protective base
The third fundamental tip is to always apply a protective base, possibly strengthening, on the nails before applying the nail polish. This will serve to protect them from the aggression of the color and other components present in the nail polish.
4) Proceed with a correct filing
A file is an essential tool for a correct manicure. However, if used incorrectly, it risks damaging the free edge (the white part, so to speak) creating micro-fractures that prevent the nails from growing long and healthy.
To proceed with a correct filing, a few small tricks are enough. Always proceed to move in the same direction avoiding “back and forth”. In this way, the surface will not heat up and no cracks will occur.
5) Always use gloves!
In everyday life between housekeeping, cooking, and children, our nails are constantly at risk of breaking! This is why it is very important to always use gloves when cleaning the house and every time you have your fingers soaked.
Furthermore, to make nails grow long and strong, it is advisable to protect them from the cold, wind, and bad weather that can dry them out making them brittle. In winter, cover your hands well, keep them warm and apply a specific cream often to moisturize them.
